    So I acquired Sonic 3 VC, and upon installing said "This channel can’t be used". I have a NTSC Wii and apparently the Sonic 3 wad I had is for PAL. So I used free the wads to convert the Sonic 3 I had, which was quick and easy enough. My questions is this: I replaced the Sonic 3 I first put on my SD card with the patched Sonic 3, and then went into the Wad manager and chose to uninstall Sonic 3. It dawned on me afterward that the Wad Manager was looking at my SD card to uninstall the Sonic 3 that was on there, although it was actually the patched Sonic 3 that was physically on the SD card, instead of the unpatched I had actually installed. Now when I go to install the patched Sonic 3, I get an error. I tried replacing the file and still get the error during install. Is there some kind of corrupted data or something in my Wii that needs to be removed? Hope this makes sense to someone, any help would be appreciated.

    UPDATE: I've discovered recently that the way I was going about using freethewads was incorrect, in that I never actually told it what to patch it to, so I don't believe it was actually altered at all. So I put the original wad I had installed on my SD, told the wad manager to uninstall it and it said it removed the ticket succesfully but gave me an error when it tried to remove title (error 106).

    I'm still just trying to make sure this isn't going to screw anything up in the future. Anybody have any info?
