    Is there a MB to blocks converter anywhere? Also does the wad manager know not to install something if there's not enough space?

    Can't you just insert a sd into the front slot, start up your wii and then see how many blocks that on the sd. You should then without any problem be able to calculate it yourself.

    Erm. No it doesn't. I made that mistake. I installed 4 WiiWare wads, and when it restarted, an error popped up on the main Wii screen saying
    "STOOPID!!! You're out of memory, we are taking you to the deletion screen so you can correct your error. Tard."

    I cried for a second, because the system hurt my feelings, but i had to delete 2 of the wads i had just installed, until there was SOME open space.

    (side note: while this was a heavily embellished story, the system did not call me names, but it did force me to delete things until space was available. So, if you have other things installed, go one at a time, seeing how much space you have left, just to be safe)

    (side note 2: while this was a heavily embellished story, and the system didn't call me names, i DID in fact cry for a few moments, just because i'm such a pussy. Meh, thats life. [​IMG])

    As long as it doesn't say the dreadful "Files in your wii's system memory are corrupt" message. Then I think I could survive.

    Technically, 1 MB = 8 Blocks. But wads contain some rendundant data that's already on the Wii so it's hard to say really.
