    Hi guys, how are you doing?
    So, I've just bought a new, shiny Wii U, and I want to transfer the data from my old Wii to my new Wii U. I've read on the internet how it works, but there's something I'm not sure about. From what I've read, you use an SD card that you first put in the Wii U, then, you put it into the old Wii, download a program to transfer data, and then put back the SD card on the Wii U, and you're done. But, my old Wii is one of the first model, with, like, no memory to hold virtual console games and other stuff, so, I have everything on an SD card. My question is: Do I have to repeat the process to transfer every game on the Wii U (since the old Wii doesn't have a lot of space for all the games), or does the data transfer copy a "list" of all games that I've downloaded, and then I can re-download the games on the Wii U?

    Thanks in advance, and happy new year! :yay:

    it will transfer everything at one time (your wii shop d/l list as well)

    you might need to RE-download everything
