    Wii hangs at Data Management Screen when loading Game Saves from the Wii Memory

    Hi! I've been searching this forum for a few hours now and can't seem to find any proper solution / resolution to this problem, so I figured I'd take a chance and try a new thread.

    As I've discussed in other threads, my system had CiosCorp previously installed with USB Loader GX preinstalled as well. I purchased this unit second hand. I read up on this site and found the tutorial on enabling the Shop Channel and followed those instructions perfectly. I had to install the USA EULA to get the bypass for the T&C of WiiConnect24, but after all was said and done everything worked great. I could download software through the shop channel and dlc songs within GH:WOR and RB3, as well as use the weather and news channels without incident.

    Everything seemed find until a few days ago. I tried to download a track pack from RB3 and was notified that I had less than 400 free blocks left. I found this strange as I tend to keep my system memory clear at at least 1K blocks. So I exited the store and went into the Data Management menu to see if I could clear some space up. However, when I went into the Game Saves -> Wii Memory screen, the whole unit froze within a second. However, when I load up items off the card, there are no problems. Trying to load the Channels from the Wii Memory causes no problems as well.

    Looking into a few threads here, it would seem that there could be a problem with some DLC - possibly RB3's songs (some of the stuff I downloaded previously, about 2 or 3 songs). I took note of this as I had been encountering "Unknown Errors" whenever RB3 prompts me to transfer some data in the Wii System Memory to the SD (a notice I get every time I start the game). So I followed some rough instructions on getting AnyTitleDeleter and tried to look for the DLC files. Unfortunately... I have no idea what they're named, which folder to look into and how big the files should be.

    The only thread I found on this ended two years ago with a, "I found the solution, apparently there was a problem with RB3 DLC. I solved it already!" and with no further comments and elaboration. Can anyone here help me... or is my NAND toast?

    Problem solved.

    Hi everyone, just a quick update. I decided to use the ATD Mod (primarily so I could figure out what I was deleting). I loaded it up with IOS249 and went into the 00010005 (Downloadable Game Content). I had used the previous free DLC hack and found my wads there. I deleted them all one by one, occasionally encountering the ret-106 error. When I tried to use low-level delete to finish the job, it would eventually disappear. That happened with two of the WADs (SZFE and SZAE, if I remember right). After that, the problem disappeared!

    Problem solved.

    glad to know you solved the problem. root cause -- might it be the limited memory ? less than 400 blocks is really not favorable for 'add-ons, installations', imo.

    Yeah, the problem now is figuring out how it got to that point. I deleted a lot of saves as well as the DLC packs and managed to free up to 1500 blocks. I hope that's enough to keep things stable.

    Do you have any idea how big the maximum free space is?

    SDHC through the Disc Channel only! USB Loaders don't recognize them.

    Okay, got it, thanks! Until my USB loader can make use of SDHC's, I guess I'm stuck playing GH:WOR and RB3 through the Disc Channel so I can download all the DLC I can handle. :-P
