    Basically buy a large SDHC card, redownload everything to the SD-Card and only download to the card and play from the card. Then you will always have enough main memory.

    Of course this does not cover saved games, but they don't take up much space. So I don't think it would hurt to leave game saves in main-memory.

    Yeah, that Digital200 predicted finnaly happen!!
    First for anyone, the new storage system works like a cache system; you store your VC, Wiiware, channels, etc to the SDHC card and when you start the Wii system memory caches the data allowing for fastest transfer, this means the contend is still on the SD card. Second some people have issues, that it becose the TYPE OF SD CARD, I recomend you use the Sandisk brand that is fully compatible with Nintendo systems. Third, if you see the storage process slow and playing process is fast it's again becose the SD card type, IF YOU REALLY WANT SPEED, BUY THE 15X SPEED SDHC. I heve one and the transfer access is fastest for both storage and playing. Also I recomend you it's better purchase a 32GB SDHC than a 8GB or 16GB, you say the 8GB is enought. But not is enought, becose if you know the DLC OF THE XBOX360 GAMES COMES FROM 650MB TO 1.5GB, this means if the third-parties will start to launch DLC for Wii games you already need big storage space. Why you need to have some SD cards instead you only use one for all contend. Finnaly Harmonix and Neversoft need to launch a pach to solve the GH:WT and RB2 downloable tracks isuess with the SDHC...

    MAN!!! What ever happened to that digital 200 guy!!??
    He was SPOT ON!! Plus he always knew the Wii's potential all along!!!

    I'm likin' Menu 4.0. My only real gripe is that they didn't integrate the SD menu with the main one. I thought that was their intention all along. 2 menus will began to confuse folks especially the casuals!! haha...
    In 2007 I predicted Wii Fit would sell more than Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

    EVERYONE at wiichat.com disagreed with me.

    As it stands today:

    Super Smash Bros. Brawl: 9.49 Million

    Wii Fit: 35 Million

    Yeah I know!!

    Now I recomend these SDHC for quality and price are the best deal!!

    In stock at Newegg, hurry and buy one before sold out!!

    OCZ Gold Series 16GB Secure Digital High-Capacity (SDHC) 150x at $42.99

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227399

    or

    With this, you can obtain a very good price per capacity and tranfer speed!!

    This is what it does, officially (From Wikipedia):

    March 25, 2009 4.0

    * Update includes SD Card Menu to "move" files and channels between the Wii console and SD card[1]
    * You can download and play Virtual Console or WiiWare games directly to the SD card from the Wii Shop Channel
    * Wii Shop Channel supports classic arcade games[2]
    * Ability to save and access Wii Channels from the SD card[3]
    * SDHC card (up to 32 GB) support for System Menu, Wii Speak Channel, Shop Channel, and Photo Channel. Other features may not support SDHC cards.[2]
    * Deletes every version of the Twilight Hack (including 0.1beta2) [3]
    * Patches IOS16, which was the last official IOS with the signing bug [3]
    * Fixed the bug that was used in the Homebrew Channel installer (so all existing IOS-versions were updated) [3][4]
    * Added IOS38, IOS53, IOS55, IOS60, and IOS61 [4]

    Impressive update. Though I'm still waiting for them to speed up message transfer speeds so that it feels more like other consoles, and Reggie said that the Wii would soon have more of a community feel to it. I don't even have an SD card, in the 2 years I've owned the Wii, so I have like no use for this update. lmfao

    But now that SD cards are so heavily integrated, more companies might start releasing updates and DLC only for those with SD cards. After all, this resolves the Wii's storage problems.

    As for the new Zelda title, meh. I'm waiting for the true one, the one that's going to be a Wii-exclusive.

    There's some gamers confused with the SDHC cards, I will try to explain:
    There's two types of SD cards, The normal SD card (ver1.0) and SDHC (ver2.0). Also both have slow and fast models. But we will focus on the SDHC card if you really want to take the most advantage.

    There's three types or class of SDHC by speed:

    Class 2: 2MBs/sec. minimun transfer rate
    Class 4: 4MBs/sec. minimun transfer rate, and
    Class 6: 6MBs/sec. minimun transfer rate

    Of course there's more fast cards:

    The 100X: 15MBs/sec. maximun transfer rate
    The 150X: 21MBs/sec. maximun transfer rate (Editor's choice, best deal).

    And some Sandisk brand with: 30MBs/sec. (Model III) and 45MBs/sec. (Model IV).

    But are too expensive...
