    So, I just downloaded Contra Rebirth onto my wii. I transferred it to my SD card menu and played it. I went and checked my channel save data and on the wii tab there was a bubble called SD Card Menu Data and it said Contra Rebirth and took up 200some blocks. What's the point in moving something to the SD card if it's just going to take up the space on the wii anyway? I've only had certain games do this to me. It seems like everything from Square does it but games like Gradius Rebirth and Silver Star Chess don't. Does anyone have any idea what the SD Card Menu Data is all about and how to stop that stupid crap?

    It is left over when you dont go back to the wii menu and instead just power off.

    so if I always make sure to go back to the main menu it won't pop up?

    the wii loads the sd card menu selected game into nand and runs it from there,, not the sd card itself. its a bit of a cheap way of doing things. could use anything up to 250 blocks depending on the game.

    I would imagine you need to have enough room on your Wii to play games stored on your SD card.
