    If I'm understanding correctly, you have a PAL version of the Wii trying to play a US (NTSC) game. I'm assuming that your TV is also PAL-complient.

    I might be off base with this, so anyone who has more information please feel free to overrule me...

    Basically, no matter what aspect ratio you're looking at (widescreen or full frame) when you're comparing NTSC vs PAL, NTSC will always look more widescreened (or shorter) (explanation: assuming that the horizontal pixels are the same, NTSC will always have fewer pixels vertically)

    Check out this for a more detailed (and probably less confusing explanation)

    As far as I know, there's isn't a whole lot you can do, but from what I hear, you are lucky the NTSC game works on your PAL tv. Some peeps are getting the dreaded "black screen on death" (game shows up in the Channel, but only a black screen after that.

    thats probably more to do with the actual tv than the wii. And if your tv can 'handle' NTSC signals.

    Once the disc works, backups are at no disadvantage to an original disc.

    (That's an answer to the topic's question ...)

    The same seems to be true of the opposite. I also get a "widescreened" effect with some PAL releases on my NTSC.

    I think it depends on the game. I have ntsc RE4 and ntsc wii and I do not get full screen. Most of my games are like that too. The only games that I get full screen on are the Nintendo made ones.
