    I managed to extract to Mario Kart Channel.wad from the .iso, I installed it (with the proper fallback so I could delete it if something went wrong), and I didn't know you still need the Disc to make the channel work, given to my lack of ModChip (or in the correct way, the Original copy), untill cSM is released, there is no way for me to use it, such a waste of time just for trying to be an apporting member of this community, i was fun tho...!!!

    I don't really understand it...
    You've installed the Mario Kart Channel as a wad, but it doesn't work?

    What if you have Mario Kart for the Backuploader (gamma), and you will instal the mario kart channel through a .wad, will it work then?

    Yeah, I can't try it, so I won't find out either^^
    I can't find the .wad on the internet, and my pc won't read the DVD with Mario Kart on it...(Didn't burn it myself)

    Ow, my Wii can read it! But my PC won't so I can't rip the Mario Kart Channel out of so I can let it burn in Hell....
    Ow sorry, I slipped away.
    It plays well, and you don't need the disk to use the Channel, I know that.

    I extracted the .wad from the .iso image in my HDD, not directly from the DVD, with the Gamma loader is not possible to install the channel thru the disc, and if you install the channel, when you go to a race, it ask you for the Game Disc, the DVD with the game can be ripped with ImgBurn, and the channel does not require the disc, the races does...!!!

    So are you trying to run the game from a channel without requiring the disk at all?

    All the stuff that can be done in the Channel can be done on the actually Game. It's not worth any hassle in using.

    I dont see the reason for the channel either. Whether you own the retail version or not.

    Well the channel lets you recieve online competition messages on your wii's message board.
    Or can the game do that too without the channel?

    The channel shows you when there is a new comp without having to go to the wii message board with a icon in the channel. It will also inform you if you receive a ghost from a friend without having to go into the channel or message board - you get the same 'mail' style icon in the channel on the system menu, so i have the channel installed and i can see at a glance if a friend has beat one of my ghosts or there is an active competition

    The channel is also intergrated into the game itself, so there is no other need for it then what eldi said.

    also the channel does not need the disc as such, you can check out time trail friend and world rankings, for example, without the disc in the drive but if you wanted to do a time trial then you would need the disc in the machine
