    Wii Internal Memory

    I read somewhere that each save point of a Wii game takes up 256KB of memory - saving your progress in New Super Mario Bros, or your records data in Mario & Sonic at the Olympics, etc. I've also read that the Wii has an internal 512MB of memory in total, which means 2048 saves! Sounds like a lot. But I've started thinking about that. Is the 256KB per game, or per save - E.g. New Super Mario Bros allows up to 4 game save slots, which would then us 1MB of data. Does each save/game use exactly 256KB, or is that the maximum each is allowed to use? Does the Soft-modding process occupy any of the 512MB? What about Channels?

    512MB on my PC doesn't feel very big at all - in practice do I need to be careful about how much I save to my Wii, and is there a way to delete any of this information if it does get full?

    yes you can delete
    you can move to sd card if need be
    some games are more (the memory is in blocks, some are 1 block (or so, like NSMBW) while others are 123 blocks (SSBB) etc
    or you could emulate the nand and have more space if you're softmodded
    See the Thanks button over there?

    I'd like to know as well. I got about 800-900 blocks free I think. I also made quite a bit of game channels, and have tons of games that have been saved. So I know I'm loosing it fast, and was thinking about save data and how it's stored. Any way to save to SD? What about a way to get more pages for the system menu? To add more channels?
