    Is there a proper way to shutdown gamecube games on the Wii?
    I just bought a controller, memory card, and new gamecube game so that my nephew can play pokemon xd. However, for some reason, it's not saving correctly.

    Whenever I save, it says the save was successful. However, the next time I start it, it says the save is corrupted; it thens restores it, but restores to an earlier save. So basically, starting the game over and over from a previous state.

    So is it close to where you saved it or is there like a big difference?

    Big.
    I'll end up saving at like 3 hours into the game.
    Then the one it'll be able to recover is like at an hour or so.

    Yeah that's not normal I think.... Well the way I know how is to have the Wii Remote and then hit the home button and go to the Wii Menu. That works for me....

    The wiiremote doesn't seem to respond whenever i am playing a gamecube game hower. It lights all four lights, but it doesn't respond. So, my only was of doing it is to press the power button.

    okay i know its scary to read the manual but please try it some time. backward compatibility with the gamecube for the wii means that you have to use a gamecube controler(wiimote/classic will not work properly) and to save you need the gamecube memory card. The wii's internal memory/sd will not save it...i'm surpised that you saved anything. yep i know it sucks and no I don't know why or if this/or when it will be fixed in the future.

    Yeah, real nice job telling him to read the manual when you didn't even read his post. Yup.

    I don't have the Pokemon game but I have the same problem with Prince of Persia: Sands of Time. I can play through just fine but about every couple of saves the saved game gets messed up. Then I have to go to an older save and replay parts of the game. I can tell it's messed up because after about 20-30 seconds it acts as though I've died and pops up Retry or Quit. Other times I notice it because it reverts me back to the sword you start with or the save point you saved at is missing. Wish I knew what causes the problem. I'd probably be done with the game by now if I didn't have to keep going backwards. I only have 1 other GameCube game and it seems fine saving to the same memory card.

    Sounds like a lemon on Nintendo's part. I can save fine on my Wii, at least for the games that I've played (Mario Kart, SSB, MP2, MP1, Zelda). Can it be a faulty memory card? Have you not been ejecting the game? Sorry I couldn't be more help... good luck.

    I have no idea. I bought the play on gamecube memory card. 4mb from toys r us. It was the only one there at the moment. I don't know of the quality, but it was 10 bucks. It could be why. Does anyone have any? or have this particular brand?

    If not, are you guys using the official nintendo memory? Or what other good brand is there? I never had a gc, so I have no idea.

    I would try it on a different game. If it does the samething you might want to format the memory card and try it again. If still nothing contact Nintendo or the company who made the memory card. Wish I could help you better....

    I'm using the Nintendo Gamecube Memory 1019 which was purchased from Amazon.com for $20. Looks like it's $30 now. I'm going to borrow a game from a friend and try it out and see how it goes.

    wii.thao, I tried out the other GC game I have right now called Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance and it is saving and loading the saved games just fine. I had also already tried Donkey Kong Jungle Beat and it is saving/loading just fine. The only game I can't get to work 100% of the time on the same memory card is Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. So, my conclusion is that maybe some games are having problems saving to the memoyy cards when played on the Wii. I only have the 1019 memory card from Nintendo and don't plan on buying another so there isn't much more testing I can do unless I get some more GC games which isn't likely either. I can't help but think though that if this was a problem then more people would be complaining.

    Exactly. Thanks for the heads up. I would see that it would be a problem and there should be some complaints too. However, it's weird though that some games wouldn't work at all. Were you having save issues with your older memory card also with those other games too? Or was that one working with those other games too. Reason is because I don't want to get another memory just for this one gc game i have. Thanks.

    The 1019 memory card from Nintendo is the only memory card I've ever used or owned. I didn't have another card before this 1.
