    why wont the sd card let me transfer saves to my wii?

    I got a wii power save and got the Resident evil UC so I downloaded a save to the sd card and inseerted it in to the wii. I go to data mangament and go to sd card and try to copy the save to my wii. It says I must have played the game first before I transfer data. I did play the game before and I had memeory in the wii. So what do I do? I really need help

    What do you mean you "downloaded a save"? From online somewhere? Or from your own game on another Wii?

    try this.... (dont know if it works with any or all games)

    Wii Options
    Data Management
    Save Data
    Wii
    Find the games save you wish to copy and hit the "a" button on it
    2 Options show up "Copy" and "Erase"
    hit the "a" button on the "Copy" option
    it then asks if you want to copy it to the SD card. choose "Yes"

    just found out that it doesnt work on all games. i tried to copy Guitar Hero 3 file and it wouldn't let me. but i was able to copy Warioware Smooth Moves and The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princes

    Guitar Hero 3 and Super Smash Brothers Brawl do not allow backing up of the save game data to an SD card.

    Be sure to email the companies with your opinions of that.

    Did you download the correct region? (I'm assuming that you copied the file tree over correctly) There are sometimes issues between PAL and NTSC saves.

    You do realize that downloading someone else's saves off the internet isn't really a "supported" thing, right?

    That said, you're probably putting them into the wrong folder on the SD card. It needs to be in a very-specific folder structure:

    i have this problem where i cant move things from the internal memory to my SD card (wii sd card) im guessing its not made for extra memory but more like a back up.

    example: internal memory is full, move a game to the sd card and erase it from the internal memory or "blocks", then move the game back when you feel like playing it.

    hope that made sence but it sucks
