I have just purchased Wii and bought the classic controller plus some Game Cube games because I was told that Wii can play Game Cube games.
The guy at Wal-Mart said that you will need the classic controller to be able to do this. Hence I bought the Wii Classic Controller.
When I insert the Game Cube game into my Wii it recognises it as a Game Cube game and starts it but once it starts the Wii remote that is connected to the classic controller is no longer attached to the system.
Further diagnostics I found, via my IR camera, that when the Game cube Game starts it is disabling the Sensor bar and therefore the Wii controller.
So ... the question is... How the hack can you play a Game Cube Game on Wii if the Wii Controllers are disabled when a Game Cube game starts?
Do I have to have a Original Came Cube Controller?
Thanks for your feedback
