    I've been reading diff'nt threads and have gather bits of info that I can't put together.

    Ok,
    1. the wii has memory or storage space whatever, already added? yes or no
    2. if yes, is it for dl'ing VC games, saving wii games, or both?
    3. why do i need a SD card
    4. what type do I need and where can I get it.
    5. what are blocks and how many does it take to save a game
    6. I have a Far Cry, and I can't save it when I'm finished, but I can w/ Trauma Center, why is that?

    1. yes
    2. both
    3.so that u can take data to other wii's, photo channel, etc.
    4. just any sd card, best buy, camera store, wal mart....
    5. 3000 blocks, and it depends on the game. about an average of 20 blocks i'd say.
    6. because far cry sucks.

    and do ask if i didnt make anything clear, i am more than happy to help. if i did help, plz rep! :yesnod:

    Thx 4 the info, i think i got it now. Except what size card do I need?

    p.s. I like Far Cry, it reminds me of 007 TWINE a lil bit, which is the one of the best games I've ever played. I think that it would probably play better on a classic controller, but it's cool. Can I play it w/ the classic controller? Also, what's better than Far Cry w/ a 007 feel to it?

    I suggest searching ebay for the terms sandisk and SD then narrow the search with "Buy Now Only" and sort by price low to high.

    You should be able to get a 2gb card for under 20$ shipped and its the same brand as the Nintendo one!

    I definitely back you up 100% on that, ebay is the best place to get SD cards. I worked at best buy and even with the discount, which is Cost+5%, it was still substantially cheaper to get them off of ebay. That's where i got my SD and MiniSD cards. I was very happy with how quickly they shipped as well.

    Way to whore youself out there.

    But Far Cry is a good game and a very well respected franchise. And Crysis is all you need to say about the developers.

    Newbie here. I'm a father of a 12 year old that loves his Wii. I don't know much about the Wii yet, but here's the question: How do we transfer all the memory he has in the current Wii, to a new one I bought for him today? Is it a simple matter of buying a 2 gig SD card, saving everything on it and loading it on the new one?

    Any tips will be appreciated. Thanks.

    yes. all you have to do is transfer the data from the wii hard drive onto the sd card.

    You can transfer some items this way but not all.

    Purchases made through the store for virtual console cannot be transfered
    Miis must be moved using the Wiimote memory
    A few save games are locked to the console so you wont be able to move them (elebits for example)

    I have a great idea! From now on lets play the "don't answer if I'm wrong" game. Its really fun.

    Yea, when you go to copy the save to the SD card some game saves will not copy for some reason. Fairly irritating if you ask me, but most games will be able to transfer game saves onto the SD card.

    Thank You Ciper , blueovalboy7.

    We'll transfer what we can this weekend. And yes, even I knew the Wii didn't have a hard drive?!
