    I installed a couple of wads and when I reset, it took me straight to the system menu and said my system memory was full. If I copy save/profile files to my sd card and delete them from my internal memory, will my games automatically find them?

    Keep the saves on the Wii, but just move the channels to the SD card and you'll be fine.

    That's what I do. Anything you bought legally on your Wii you can re-download from the Wii Shop, or just re-install with WAD Installer. The saves take up like only 1-2 blocks a piece, so you can keep them and they'll apply to your re-installed games.

    or you can store vc/ww games on sd card even without 4.0 than transfer them back later.

    Your best bet is to upgrade to Waninkoko's 4.0 and move everything to the SD card, just make sure you don't move the Homebrew Channel to the SD card because it breaks it.

    Dont hoard useless crap! Lol, I went through a phase of collecting VC and WW releases and it got silly, I soon filled up my wii memory and then later moved them all to an SD card where most of them sit unplayed! Just look at what you have got there and ask yourself do you really need it there and do you play any of them? [​IMG]

    Just keep all your saves on your Wii memory because it would be a hassle to copy them back from SD and Wii every single time. Not to mention that some games won't let you copy to the SD card (such as Super Smash Brothers Brawl), unless you apply some hacks such as those in Preloader.

    If you move your WiiWare and Virtual Console channels to your SD card, it'll be good cause then you will have lots of space left. And then you can just run those channels direct from the SD card, it only takes less than a minute to load.

    And if your SD card is at least 512 MB, you'll be fine. Just don't lose your SD card. [​IMG]
