    my wii system memory if full and i still have nearly half the channels empty,

    can a .wad be install onto a sd card instead of the system memory?

    is theer anyway of knowing how many blocks a .wad is going to take up on the wii system memory before you install it?

    You cannot install to SD card.

    MB size of WAD / 8 = ~# of blocks

    I believe a Wii block is aprox. 1/4 to 1/5 of a MB

    so if a wad = 1 mb that means it will take up 4-5 blocks

    You can use an app called WadID to see how many blocks it is too.

    I really wish someone could come out with a way to install WADS to the SD. I bought a 16GB SD, but it does me no good when everything worth installing has to go to the tiny hard drive.

    Just to check, there's no way to install WADs as Apps that are viewable in homebrew browser either is there?
