    delete some channels/saves
    and btw this should be on the wii section not the psp one
    another way: close your wii, enter hbc with when you reopen it (when you open it you get a white menu press the power button the the reset button) the uninstall some of your wads
    to have many channels use mighty channels or triforce

    Do you have a SD card that you can move them to?

    I managed to solve the problem....

    I started deleting old save files initially, but it didn't free up any blocks and it was stuck on zero (even after freeing up over 250 blocks) I could not access anything but disk management section (no HBC, Mii channel or even disc channel!) as the wii would send me to it directly to it bypassing the system menu... it kinda had me worried.

    I carried on freeing up as much as possible (keeping my fingers crossed), must of freed up approx 500 blocks until it managed to get off zero... i now have approx 60 blocks free and the whole wii is accessible again (phew!)

    So it looks like my wii memory was into minus figures(!) but would only display zero..... silly nintendo!

    Report the memory fould as a bug so they can fix it and don't make the same mistake on the Wii 2/Wii HD
