    Yeh same (living in australia)

    Sending the wrong power into something can easily fry hardware. You should or read the power rating on the adapter before you did that [​IMG]

    Just hope you didn't totally fry something

    Well some searching shows that the gamecube's power supply is 12V and 3.25A.
    The Wii's is 12V but only 2.75A. So the cube's power supply was 0.5 amps too much I don't know if that's actually enough to cause damage though. Perhaps you've just damaged the connection pin.

    I suggest you try your Wii AC Adapter on another Wii to check if the ac-adapter is broken.

    It's very likely that you've done something in your Wii. I.e, broken something inside. I've broken a phone by putting a camcorder charger into it. The phone didn't charge. What you're going to have to do is send it back to Nintendo. It'll be expensive if you're out of warranty, but it's your own fault for doing that.
