    The wii fried my gamecube memory card from getting to hot in wiiconnect24. Almost all of the files on it are "corrupted". Its not even a cheap memory card, its the nintendo 1019. Now I can't play most of my games (my crappy games work tho -.-). I am still looking for a way to "uncorrupt" the files. I doubt its possible tho....




    Has this happened to anybody else? If it has, I think it's worth a product recall (mabye).

    How do you know it's from heat? I'm not challenging you. I'm just curious.

    Trust me dude, it's not from the heat.

    Gamecube memory cards have an annoying tendency to corrupt just because they are pissed off or want to annoy you.

    Yeah, it must be something with the type of memory card.
    I have the same one and many of the games save files I have on it get corrupted from time to time. Thats why I was happy when I heard about the Wii's memory.

    Only solution is deleting the corrupted files and starting over.

    but it's nintendo's. i don't think its the type thats messing it up.

    and i've heard from multiple places that it is wiiconnect24's heat that messes it up

    and it got corrupted after a session of wiiconnect24 -.-

    lol, heat won't corrupt the memory. If it did, it'd have to be really really hot, like hot enough to give you real burns and the plastic of the memory card would be soft. It's definitely not heat. And since you can still read the card (because how would you know the data is corrupt?) this means that it is not heat damage. If it were, the card would be unreadable. It wouldn't even register a 'corrupt data' message, it would be as if the memory card wasn't there. So no, it was not heat but rather a digital error, something within the data itself.
