    When I attempt to install nintendo 64 wad files with WAD Manager 1.7 I get an error message that says ret = -1010

    I have a Version 4.2U Wii and when I install any other kind of wad file like NES or Genesis, it works fine.

    What could possibly be wrong, and how can i fix this? Please help

    EDIT: I fixed the problem. It was because my Wii ran out of memory when I was installing the wads (there's a pretty high number that I'm adding)
    So, I moved the channels to my sd card to free up space, and now it works perfectly [​IMG]

    Probably a corrupted WAD or something, maybe you should try something else.

    Does it install fine despite the error? I recall getting an error when I installed an N64 WAD once, but it managed to install onto the System Menu and such, and I haven't had issues playing.

    Try another WAD. But even when you get a corrupted WAD message, don't persist with it. You might get a banner brick.

    Thanks for your help, guys!

    I figured out the problem. I guess the Wii ran out of memory when I was adding wads.


    Funny thing is, when I was moving wads to my sd card (in order to free up space), the amount of blocks available stayed at 0 for quite awhile, and eventually went up again, meaning that there's more space available on the wii's internal drive than nintendo allows you to use.

    Wow, that's pretty interesting. I wonder why nintendo doesnt allow us to use all of that extra space?
