    Are you sure you have enough space on your Wii (shouldn't be the problem, but you never know)

    Are you sure the wad is good?

    Try a different SD card.

    I can install other wads and i don't have any problems with this sd card i don't have another one anyway can i install using external drive? This problem only happens with virtual console wads and yes they are good all of them get stuck at #05 and how can i tell how much memory i have left on my wii

    Go into data management and it should tell you at the bottom of the screen how many "blocks" free you have.

    Again, that shouldn't be the problem. Not sure why you'd get that error otherwise though... Clearly it's not an IOS issue, as that wouldn't effect how the wads are installed, just if you could run them or not.

    Hmm... did WiiWare come out after 3.1? That might be your problem there. Seriously there's no reason not to update to 4.0, you can hack the whole system right now. Update to 4.0 and install the hacked IOS files you need, then try again.

    On 4.0:
    Install Homebrew Channel and DVDx with Bannerbomb + Hackmii

    Download Wadmanager 1.4, put on your SD card to run with Homebrew Channel

    Downgrade IOS35 so you can install other wads
    Install patched IOS for 16, 36 and 60 (Or just cIOSCorp to cover everything) and install cIOS38rev13b

    Use WadManager to install VC or WW games.

    Are you sure you updated to 4.0 then?

    I'm not sure what you mean by ios37 to ios249... Rockband has nothing to do with 249 unless you're running it through a USB loader, in which case you have a whole different set of problems!

    Im sure i am running 4.0u it ses so on the menu and i even got this little sd card thing on the main menu at the bottom which i didn't have before and an updated version of the wii shop channel.

    I used multios installer and accidentally installed ios 37 to ios 249 i was supposed to install ios 37 to ios 37 but I still don't think that's the problem though since other wads install only vc wads don't.

    I successfully installed a sega genesis game and cruisin usa for n64 but no other 64 games install they all get stuck on content #5 when I use the sd card and they get stuck on content #4 when using an external drive I tried downloading the same games mario kart 64 and yoshi story from a whole bunch of different places and they all have the same problem so I know its not the wads.

    Ok I got it working now I had to reinstall ios16 and use a usb drive on the secound port i don't know why it doesn't work with the sd card but I got it working thanks. There should be some sort of all in one hombrew patch installer that adds all the patched ios and dvdx etc or a custom firmware like the psp that would be sweet.

    Am I nuts, or has every other guide I've read on the matter left out this vital step?

    Thanks, this is what I was looking for.
