    Confirm that the channel you've installed is the same region as your console.

    If not, you will want to acquire a same-region version or "regionfree" the .wad to make sure that it will work properly.
    Preloader also gives you the ability to run Channels Region-Free, you could try that as well, if you already have it installed.

    The most common reason for this to happen is when you download the game in wad format (illegally) and you don't have the IOS that the game requires, you'll have to search what IOS those games use and download them too.

    I had a similar issue. I recommend upgrading to 4.0 for any issues with WAD's, especially one's you "find" if you get my drift. The majority of one's downloadable through VC Ware packages are either regionfree or NTSC/Converted PAL.

    If your "finding" your Wii Wares, then i can recommend some locations so PM. And still you'll want REV13b and 4.0 System.

    All of these issues have to do with the lack of certain IOS on the console. Simply update to 4.0 using one of the many guides on the site and you should be able to play all of the titles you want.
