    I have a Japanese Wii updated to 3.0 firmware. I've noticed that these three U.S. games will show on the Wii menu screen, but boot to a black screen when you start them up:

    - Rayman Raving Rabbids
    - Cooking Mama
    - Brain Age

    I don't think it's a bad burn as I've tried multiple times. Anyone else run across this?

    Not all NTSC-U games are compatible with a NTSC-J console. Here's a list for future reference.

    Mark187 is correct. These games are not compatible with your NTSC(J) Wii. Go to the link he provided above and find the game title your wanting to play to see if it is region compatible.

    the sections you will look under are...

    NTSC(U) TO NTSC(J)

    OR

    PAL TO NTSC(J)
