    That would be correct. The Wii simply reads the discs backwards. That is why, as of now, it is incompatible with standard DVD's. Regular DVD's are written differently than Wii DVD games.

    If you mod your wii cant you watch dvd's with it? Cause if thats the case it is actually capable of watching dvd's, and just needs an update.

    Modding it yes but a firmware update, it may not be that simple. The drive would have to be capable of spinning the disc the opposite way as well as read the data normally. Firmware may correct the lense to read the data but without hardware changes it would not matter.

    Because that is a flat out lie.

    A Wii cannot play a standard dvd without a hardware update.

    I understand people want the wii to play DVDs so that they can "simplify" their home entertainment set up, but at this point it's just a waste. You'll probably be upgrading to blu-ray or HDDVD before you upgrade to the next nintendo system so there's not much point to getting a wii that can play your Samurai Pizza Cats box set. (Oh yeah, that show isn't on dvd yet. )

    It's already proven that the Wii does not need a hardware upgrade to play DVD movies. There is already a mod that allows it to play DVD movies and it's already said that the reason the current wii does not play is because of the cost of the license software. Just so everyone knows a dvd drive is a dvd drive no matter if it's a wii, ps2, gamecube, Xbox, PC, or a player all it needs is software to tell what it needs to do. Any IT or programers knows this. Anyway just google if you want to know how to play DVD's on your Wii, but do know that it voids your warrenty.

    I think Nintendo was smart with not including a DVD player in the original Wii, even when the first Xbox came out I thought it was a waste and an extra $50 or whatever I was paying for since I already had better DVD players in every TV in my house.
