    Just out of morbid curiosity....if you can't play VC and WiiWare games off an SD card, other than saving certain game saves and some DLC, what was the point of putting an SD card in in the first place? Nintendo should have known that(and not just us pirates either) that there would be lots of people who would want enough space to have tons of VC and WiiWare games than would fit onto 512mb.....just a couple big wiiware games and 2 or 3 N64 games and your memory is full.....

    I read(or heard a rumor, I guess would be more appropriate) somewhere that they may update the firmware to allow this, but how would that work? Would you transfer them from your internal memory to the SD card(kind of like the new Rock Band 2 content would be done). I'm surprised that it's not possible by now....but alas, just gotta make sure that I don't fill up thw Wii with a ton of stuff for the time being lol.

    wiiware wasnt really planned they just kinda thought of it, so they thought 512 is enough for vc games

    sd is for backing up your precious saves,obviously

    it's not a rumor its true Nintendo will release an update that lets you play vc and Wiiware games from an sd card ,but I'm not sure how it will work.
