    lol. the sd crad function in 4.0 requires you have the same amount of blocks on your wii free, since it simply copies the game temporarily to the Nand of your console.

    Move another channel off your Wii, or delete something from your Wii

    Time to shed some Junk channels and Wiiware!

    If you have the INTERNET CHANNEL then suggest if you don't really use it then ditch it! ...It takes up a huge chunk of memory!

    and get rid of any other useless saves and channels and Wiiware you will be amazed how much space some crappy VC games take up too!

    Just delete any channel you don't need and get rid of any wii saves to games you don't play anymore.

    Just make sure theres enough room for the biggest game you got on the sd card.
    As said above, when you select a game, its copied from the sd to the nand before its played, once you leave the game, it deletes it from nand.

    Thats what is happening when you see the progress bar when "launching" the game.
