Nintendo Wii NTCS-PAL inter-compatibility

I have recently brought a Nintendo Wii from US and have discovered that the console is NTSC. All the games in my country are PAL coded so I'm unable to run them on my system.

I have come up with a decoding scheme as follows:

* Take a raw dump of the data using a software called rawdump2.0 which simply reads raw data from the optical drive and creates an ISO file.

* Once the ISO file is created, I plan to use another software called Wii Frii which can change the coding of the ISO file from PAL to NTSC.

* I believe that burning the ISO game on a DVD after the encoding change should create a replica of the original game in NTSC which should be compatible with my console.

The problem is:

* I am not able to test this procedure. Has anyone tried it? Can this actually work?

* I could not test this procedure because rawdump2.0 software has strict requirements of the DVD drives it can operate on (specifically LG8164b or equivalent) which apparently is no longer available in stores. Is there any other software available that can work on a broader range of manufacturers/models? Or is there a simple way of reading Wii disks and creating data dumps?

* Is there an easier alternate?

I'm sorry that we can not help you here. From looking at several Nintendo forums, you should have gotten an European model. You can get a ntsc to pal converter, but they cost as much or more than a new wii.

Unfortunately the workaround your doing can be used for illegeally obtained games, there for we can not assist you with that.

We here at GeeksToGo will not assist you with issues relating to copied, pirated, or in any other way stolen programs. It is a direct violation of our TOS (Terms Of Service) to offer any assistance in this matter.]
