    Alright right off the bat I know that you are way confused.

    1. You can upgrade your Wii's firmware by either hooking your Wii up to the internet or by updating with a recent game.

    2. 3.0J is your Wii's firmware...not a modchip. NTSCJ is just the region where your Wii has come from which is Japan. So you have a Japanese Wii.

    3. If you want to check on what CHIP SET your Wii has then go here and enter the Wii's serial number-

    4. PAL is European, NTSCU is American, NTSCJ is Japanese/Asia

    Well you can enable partial region free to your Wii so some games will work. But be aware about bricking.

    Your Wii will not read original games? There is a problem with your Wii. You will need to return it.

    You don't have a modchip fitted as far as I can see from all I read here - You bought the Wii and tried to run backups assuming it has a modchip in. The modchip is something extra which you have to have fitted.

    I may be wrong but that's how it looks to me?

    The D2CKey is the most popular modchip for your machine at this moment and if you have one fitted then it's almost certainly that one. If not you might want to pay for it to be installed.
