    But if you start to use up your system memory you can move older game data to an SD and free up space on your system. But he is correct that you do not need an SD card. The wii has internal memory and there is the ability to save game data on the SD Card.

    right now i love the 2.0 GB sandisk sd memory card. u can never worry about leaving some room for memory. u can save all u want. and plus the white look on the sd card makes it look nice and perfect for wii.

    obviously he has no idea the wii had usb ports so I figured a picture was easier for him to understand. I wonder if he noticed them when he first hooked the system up since you have to look at the back of the wii to plug things in.

    Update your saved Games

    I haven't seen any address any problems with updating their backups once they are already on the SD card, so maybe I'm having a technical problem with my Wii, but I am unable to overwrite existing backups with newer copies. For example, I saved a backup of my Twilight Princess on Monday and copied it to my SD card. Then on Tuesday I tried to repeat the same steps but I received an error message indicating that "a save for this game already exists." Am I to understand that I must first delete my SD backups before I can move a newer copy of the same game to the memory card. That seems a bit unecessary. Or, is it possible that once a copy is made to the SD card, that the wii will always associate those copies and keep them current?

    Thanks

    My guess is the prior. The Wii data management is lacking in many ways sp I doubt there is any sort of intelligence.

    It bugs me that games cant save or read directly from the SD card. It is as if Nintendo forgot that people want to take saves with them. Forcing me to go though all this copy/delete crap is just bad interface design.

    The really stupid part is that the old GC memory cards were SD cards internally! You can create your own GC to SD adapter with a soldering iron and some wires (for reading at least). In other words the Wii is a step BACKWARDS from the GC

    Yes, you have to erase the file from the SD card and then copy the new one save file on to the SD. It cant overwrite. It's written somewhere on the support site, but I dont feel like finding it right now...
    And as for the step backwards... I dont really think so, I think its a step forward. As a matter of fact, making the GC memory cards different from SD cards in the first place was a mistake. They shoulda just used SD cards, why make your own proprietary memory card, and cause trouble? Here Nintendo coulda taken a hint from the stupid PS and its use of the MemoryStick Duo sh**. True, its proprietary, but its also widely available on other products and card readers are also widely available... Anyway, using SD cards is one step closer to that goal, though there are still many limitations...
