    I bought an SD card so I could move the downloaded VC games to it, so they wouldn't clutter up the main menu screen on the Wii.

    I can't play my VC game sunlease I move them back onto the Wii menu and I dont want to do that.

    Am I missing something as it should be possible.

    No. The SD card is basically for storage. It's basically an item for freeing up space on the Wii by transferring over VC games you don't intend to play too often to the SD card. Say you were running out of memory on the Wii and you were halfway through Ocarina of Time, but didn't intend to play it any time soon. You could put it on an SD card to free up memory space until you decide you want to put it back onto the Wii.

    I understand, I just think thats a bad design fault.

    I've just transferred all my game save date to the SD card so it better work.

    huh? transfer one at a time, play it, move it back.

    not really tricky

    alternatively hover over the VC channel you want to move, hold down B button on Wiimote, then hold down A button on Wiimote, pick up the VC channel and move it to the second or third screen to the right ( by hovering over the arrow to scroll the screen right).

    ANY channel EXCEPT the disc channel can be moved in this way....

    nice tidy main screen and accessible VC content.

    SORTED

    I'm still not happy, should, stupid, stupid.

    I have moved the games to the very last page.

    I don't want to jeep moving them form Wii to SD takes time and I don't know when I'll play the games so putting them in one place on a SD card out the way means I could have put the card in a picked a game but oh no they have to be fools.

    Small things add up i nthe end.

    I want a VC storage channel, then I'll be happy.

    Its not a great system unti; they sort ut the small poblems.

    My SD card is a waste of money as I can't use it for what I intended it to be used for.

    I have loads of space left but I have even more on the sd card and I can't take advantage of it, so its £20 of plastic sitting in my Wii.

    I wanted to have the vc games stored out of the way and then when I wanted to play I put the sd card in and pick a game.

    Surely thats not too mcuh to ask.

    But what about Wii game saves? Surely the SD Card works like a Gamecube memory card right? You just put it in and it saves your game to it. Then you can come back and pick up where you stared without transferring anything? Unless there is a completely separate card for saving Wii games...

    Wow then it sounds pretty pointless to get an SD Card then. I completely agree with you about Nintendo fixing this whole VC game situation. I mean once we pay for them we should be able to download them for free on the next Nintendo system and we should be able to run them thru the SD Card saves. Its useless unless you really need the extra space. The Wii itself will save your game with VC games correct? I guess later in the future when more channels come out I might get one but until then I'm just gonna save everything on the hard drive.

    as i've already said elsewhere.............


    1) the SD card is useful for building a library of VC content if you don't have a permanent broadband connection.

    2) using a pc your SD card allows you to upload or download save game data. so if you are that way inclined you won't have to buy an action replay....

    3) we have 6 other things that use an SD card. i'm sure that you can find a use for it somehow

    4) if Nintendo hadn't put the slot on the front you'd be moaning about the fact there was no removable storage

    5) some of the new titles (eledees in particular) use a lot of space for their saves......(109 blocks). you may be thankful for this function in 6 - 12 months
