    Well look, I got a Gamecube game recently, and, stupidly enough, after not owning an official gamecube for over 4 years, I totally forgot I needed a GC Memory card...Noobish right? Well it happened. I am so mad because I was playing the Gamecube game today, and so far in the game, then to find out it says no memory card inserted in slot A. I was like, "Om...fg -.-" Why doesn't Nintendo save the GC games to the wii system memory like all the VC games and etc? Is there a way to save the gamecube gamesaves to the wii at all?

    You cant save the data to the wii system memory as when you boot a gamecube game, all the wii functionality turns off, rendering it a gamecube.

    Hmm, but what about that new program that's out that lets you boot GC in Wii mode? Would that do anything useful with the saves?

    Impossible. GC mode cannot access Wii-specific hardware under any circumstances, period.

    No internal flash memory.
    No USB ports.
    No wi-fi.
    No sensor bar port.
    No front SD slot.

    I said I got a GC GAME a couple days ago. And after not officially owning a GameCube system after about 7 years, (I traded it in at Gamestop), I totally forgot you needed a memory card for it.

    Cheap memory cards can be found on eBay. Don't worry about space, as a program available through the Homebrew Channel lets you copy GC saves from the memory card to your SD card for archival purposes.
