    I tried playing Resident Evil 4 today and I cannot proceed past the "continue without saving" screen. I've ran into this issue with most of my titles with the exception of a few games that will continue past the screen without a Gamecube memory card.

    Has anyone else ran into this issue when trying to play Gamecube games without a memory card?

    Not normally, but I cant seem to find my memory card. I have a new coming in the mail, but until then, I cant seem to get most games to get past that "continue without saving" screen. So thats why I am wondering if it's my Wii console that is faulty.

    i don't play games without a memory card....but then, try RE4 on a Gamecube to see if it's doing it there too.

    Nintendo should have made it so that you can put GC saves on the Wii's internal memory.

    Can someone try a RE4 on their Wii without a memory card and tell us what the outcome is? Thanks!

    And how would you propose that? The coding to save anywhere other than a GC memory card just isn't there in the games.

    I'm sure it wouldn't be that hard to do. You can put Xbox game saves on the 360. I'm not sure about the PS3 but you can put PS1 saves on a PS2 memory card.

    all they would really have to do is emulate the mem card. like make a 128MB flash storage thing that the Wii see's as a GC mem card

    As far as I know you need a GameCube memory card and controller to play GameCube games. However, this may be fixed/changed with a firmware update.

    Well, I put a memory card in the unit and now it wont go past the "would you like to create a file?" screen.

    Can someone please trying playing Resident Evil 4 on a Wii with a Wavebird for me please? Thanks!

    I don't have this problem. I were you I you turn off the Wii and pull out the memory card and the wavebird and put them back in firmly. Turn on the Wii and check to make sure that the memory card is in slot 1 and that it read. Then try playing Resident Evil 4. If that doesn't work then you may have something wrong with your system.

    Thanks for the response. Yep, I have a defective unit. I called Nintendo and yes it is defective. Oh well, I guess there's a first time for everything...

    strangely, a lot of peoples have defective units, but mine is still working fine since i bought it on launch day.

    i put it on horizontal position, since the air intake seem to be clogged by the vertical stand...cos even if there's space for the intake, the actual airflow space is very narrow.

    plus, i think i'll never put my Wii in Sleep Mode again, since the fan stops working in this mode and the system get hotter than when running ON normally.

    It will be at a certain temperature and that is fine, as long as it doesn't start getting increasingly warmer when on standby.

    i just wish Nintendo would fix that temperature problem and let the fan run even in Sleep Mode (firmware update?)...it's quiet enough so it wouldn't be a trouble going to sleep with the Wii in Sleep Mode, so you can still receive messages on it without the system getting warmer/hotter...

    I'm having the same problem with F-Zero GX on the Wii. I can't get past the memory card save option screen. I never had a Gamecube console, but I picked up a GC memory card figuring that was the problem, but I still can't get past the memory card save option screen. I am trying to use the classic controller, because I don't have a GC controller. Could that be the problem? Do I need a GameCube controller?

    you need a Gamecube controller, and try to get a Nintendo-brand memory card for GC. because i experienced data loss with a 3rd-party one.

    i tried F-Zero GX on mine and it works fine.
