Is it actually possible to play NTSC-J Wii or Gamecube games on a PAL Wii?

I have some imported japanese games which I copied to USB but I have never been able to get a single one to boot.
I've tried patching the games, turning on all kinds of region free settings, Downloaded a copy online in case it was just my iso, tried it on a disk and tried it on USB but nothing ever seems to work.

I can get PAL and NTSC games to work fine just not NTSC-J.

Do you have dx v8 cios's?
I've tried them before and it didn't work, but my cios are a mess at the moment from trying different things.
Everything but NTSC-J and Gamecube emulation on dios mios works fine.

if the guy has gone to the effort of posting his syscheck at least read it before you offer any more 'advice'

I'm running Captain Rainbow NTSC-J fine on my PAL wii - one thing you could try is change the language setting to Japanese :)

Some NTSC-J games normally doesnt work with PAL wiis, but I made some small patch which is available in DIOS-MIOS Booter to get all NTSC-J games to work, so if it doesnt run you may try it out ;)
