If you’re anything like me, or like anyone else in the world that owns a Wii, you're probably wondering why on earth the Wii is so limited in what functionality it offers you out of the box. The most common question I hear from friends and family is "Why can't my Wii play DVDs?"
And the truth, believe it or not, is that it can. Let me guess, you have taken your favorite DVD off the shelf and put it in your Wii only to find out that your get an invalid media error message. Don’t worry, I’ve done it as well and cannot work out why the functionality of a task as simple as playing a DVD was taken away from a gaming console that has the hardware functionality to do so.
The great news is that giving your Wii the functionality to do this is absolutely within your reach and no matter where you purchased your Wii from, when you purchased it, or what you have done with it since its been in your possession, you are able to make your console even better than it already is. Imagine being able to use your Wii console for everything from playing games with the intuitive remote, to watching and navigating through your favorite movies with the very same control.
The pure fact that you aren’t adding yet another remote control just gives your Wii that extra push in the right direction. Even better, your official Nintendo worldwide warranty is not modified or void in anyway. This is always a major concern when adding functionality to a product.
These methods do not require any modification to hardware or firmware, and everything is completely reversible if for some unknown reason you would like to revoke anything that you do.
