However, the Wii Speak Channel is no longer available for download from the Wii Shop Channel, and it cannot be transferred to Wii U.
But some game disks contain a system update and won't let you play the game until your Wii is updated. Answer: The simplest thing to do is to use Start Patch, if your Wii is running System Menu 4 or higher, or Star Fall if you're running System Menu 3.2.
You can check the version of your Wii console by looking at the numbers on the top right corner on page 1 of the Wii System Settings page.
