Nintendo released a new model of the Wii late into the console lifecycle, the Family Edition (it was 2011). For whatever fucking reason, they removed backwards compatibility from that model. That's what the OP probably has. I find that a rather dick move from Nintendo, but oh well.

what?? that sucks, did not know that

Yeah. It's model number is RVL-101. The black version is more common. Easiest way to tell from the outside, is if the front pannel Wii logo is vertical when the console is standing up. You can get a GC. People are working on a HDMI mod for the system. But than you'd have to send in your console to whoever offers the mod work.
