    Installing too many VC games via WAD Installer v2.0 in 1 shot will get you an error during install once you run out of room! Upon reset your Wii will pop u[ saying "System Memory full create some space." No matter what you delete you will not got the blocks freeed up!

    1. Tried deleted save data
    2. Deleting purchased VC games
    3. Deleted wads (via wii system menu) (cant delete via WAD Uninstaller cuz i cant boot to the wii menu (i get errored and asked to free memory)

    Solution: Use the wii format utility


    SOLVED: Did a full Wii System Data Format, i lost all my Saved Data though!

    wow whats up with the caps?

    anyway just delete somemore games until you see that you have free blocks, or put some channels on a sd card

    Out of the corner of your eye
    Well, there are many warnings the tinkering with this stuff can brick your Wii ... are you removing channels the normal way, or using the WAD uninstaller app?

    If you are using the normal method, that is why you aren't getting your space back ... you need to use the uninstaller, I believe ...

    The WAD Uninstaller COMPLETLY removes the games. Even the Tickets and Titles are removed so you should get your blocks back.

    I've tried this a thousand times. Just keep deleting VC channels, and eventually you'll start getting blocks back. Trust me, this is as far from bricking your Wii as you'll ever be.

    Also, you need to chill.

    I had the same issue yesterday, when triying to install kirby crystal shards.
    memory was full, even if I had only 3 VC games and e few saves, twilight hack froze without the possibility to turn off te wii.
    I removed it from the power for 5 min and it worked fine again

    Just delete some of the big games (+200 blocks), like OoT and pretty much any N64 game.

    Yeah, I'm not even going to bother with VC games. Stuff like this happens, and if theres a game I *really* want, I'll just buy it [​IMG]

    Still have a bunch of points left from the 10k card they gave me anyway [​IMG]

    Dudes, nothing "happend". He just went past the magic 512 MB marker. Deleting the game channels will free some space, and free this poor soul from what seems to be some kind of crazed state.

    Data Management in the options menu. Click the game you want to transfer, send it to the sd card. I would only do that with ones you've actually purchased though.

    Yes, make sure you delete CHANNELS, and not Savedata (switch from saves to channels at the top of the screen at the Data Management menu)
