I think you've uninstalled the (WAD)ticket, this needs to stay to copy the game back to the Wii.

If you want to move vc etc to the SD you must do this...
Install WAD, then don't un-install it, but instead go to the wii settings channel screen, and copy to SD, then again, DONT uninstall the wad, just use the channel manager to delete.

If you uninstall a WAD, you remove the ticket, and so can't copy it back to the Wii.

You must be doing something wrong, or maybe it's that exact WAD? not sure.

All I can say I know about this, is that I have done it many times with no problems.

Try with a different WAD maybe?

I have the same problem as Littlegreenmen. I install the VC/wiiware game with wad manager and can play it on my system.

I can copy it to my SD card from the wii's channel manager but can't copy it back after deleting it using the channel manager. I have one game I bought before installing Homebrew on my wii and that can be copied back and forth just fine, so I guess it has something to do with the ticket. I am not using any uninstallers though, so I'm not sure what's going on

I am on 3.4U though, not sure if that could be the problem or not. Regardless, all the wads are in my SD card anyway so it isn't really a big deal, just some extra steps to get the games back onto my system

Works for me everytime, on 3.2, so maybe a downgrade is needed.
