    Is there anyway to dump your NAND to a USB drive or over wifi? because my SD card is not big enough. Or will i have to purchase a bigger card?

    I thought when dumping Wii ISOs you swapped the SD out as it went along?

    Oh, my bad. The Wii's NAND is only 512MB, right? If you don't have a card larger than that, I'd just get a 1GB MicroSD. Here's a link to a 1GB MicroSD plus an SD adaptor for $4, $11 after shipping.

    cool, thanks. Kinda patetic you can buy a card thats way smalled then the wii's memory unit, and double the size from only 10$ or so eh? we should find a way to replace the wii's current hard drive so we can fit more VC games on it. ^.^ but i digress lol

    it only has the NAND which also contains the firmware. even if you replaced it with a larger chip, the wii could only address 512 MB of it.
