    the blocks might be bad did you use bootmii to do a nand scan it will tell you how many bad blocks you have?

    This is bad, wad manager lets you install wads even if system memory is full but it will ask you to delete channels/save data when you return to wii menu.

    what is the error exactly?

    Just to clarify, AFTER you have installed the WAD the Wii is saying you have 111 blocks and you still have to delete some? How many blocks do the WAD/WADs you are trying to install take up? If you only have 111 blocks free before the installtion, can you delete some things to make room? Have you tried the databse version of ATD?

    what it comes down to is it says i have no free space but i have 111 on the bottom of the screen sometimes if i save a game like GH5 ill run out of space im so lost and im starting to see this prob more and more here and other places. it seems to me that 4.x is the prob well we ever be able to use atd or mod to get this space back its driveing me nuts AAAAAARRRRRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGG!

    111 blocks is not very much at all.

    The ATD issue sounds similar to what was a software bug with ATD. After a certain number of titles, like 300 or so, ATD just stopped working. They called it the "pirate bug". The title count includes installable content as well as tickets left by every disc-based game ever played on the wii. Thought that newer ATDs had the bug fixed...

    As for why the wii wants you to free space with 111 blocks free is beyond me. Formatting the wii might help, since it will toss all those tickets. Make a backup with bootmii before you do that though. At the very least, it has a chance at fixing ATD.

    formatting will just erase all the system settings and channels it wont delete IOS etc it will delete bootmi though i think cos it wipes everything off the nand.

    I have a similar situation

    I updated my shop channel so i could use it to see what was new

    When i updated the internet channel from the shop channel it said i had 34 blocks free
    I couldnt beleive by system memory fell so low
    The internet channel said it was going to take 0 blocks for the update so i let it go through

    After the update i had 67 free blocks, it went up for some reason
    So I updated the nintendo channel, it also said the update would take 0 blocks

    After that update i have 86 free blocks
    Everything I can dl from the shop channel says it will take 0 blocks

    When I go to the data management the wii says it has 198 free blocks

    I cant figure out why


    Oh, BootMii says im using 80% of the nand
    And i have 2 bad blocks (block 215 and 3235)

    dudes i keep about 1000-1300 blocks free...what the hell do you have on the system? there is something called SD channel for your wiiware/vc needs. i've been close to that as i do a lot of testing, but i always go back and empty my memory. its a pain but to avoid these issues you gotta keep it clean. uninstall some channels or transfer to sd, same thing with saves, copy all the saves you don't use that often to your sd card. if you need more space get a bigger sd card

    Every forwarder, channel, and VC/Wiiware as an installed title, regardless of where you stored it (SD or internally). How many total titles are there including all VC/WW and forwarders on SD menu?

    If you format, you'd find that the titles on the SD won't work anymore. The titles on the internal memory will simply cease to exist. All of them would need the wads reinstalled (or be redownloaded if not pirated/homebrewed).

    My wii yells its full with 9 blocks free. That seems reasonable. But 111 blocks? I can cram several genesis titles in there! (Sonic 2 is like 20-something blocks...)
