    if you mean wads of vc and wiiware titles...yes you can. just install the game and then go to data management and move game to sd card. then you can use the sd card menu to launch your games. you will still need space on your wii as it transfers the selected game to your wii before playing automatically.

    i'm guessing he means warez wads vs ones that he bought from the store.... and i don't believe you can just play those once you move them to the sd card.

    Yes, you can. I have both warez and bought games here and both runs fine from SD card. Just make sure to have a patched System Menu IOS.

    You don't even need to patch the IOS unless you're using wads made by a shitty wadpacker.

    I am trying to install "LostWinds: Winter of the Melodias" (PAL) via Wad Manager 1.5 but it keeps giving me a black screen and I've tried both IOS 249 & 222 = just a black screen.

    Any suggestions on what I'm doing wrong?

    but I don't have one and they work just fine from the SD menu.
    I don't think you need one if you have a way of unbricking [​IMG]
