    What firmware do you have? Wiis with 3.3 firmware and above normally cannot install WADs. If your wii is above 3.3 then you will need to downgrade it

    Maybe it is the WAD itself? Try different WADs. Have you ever installed any other WADs on WAD Manager

    Final Bits of advice i can give:
    Try different SD Cards
    Use Different WADs
    Make Sure you are using Wad Manager and not Custom Wad Manager
    Make Sure you are using a good Wad Manager like WAD Manager 1.3
    Make sure you downgrading to 3.2 properly read this:
