    Ca Can't copy content to Wii system memory - help!

    Hey everyone. I've recently been downloading songs for RB2 from the online music store using the hack that makes everything show as purchased. Everything was going swimmingly () for the last week or so until I downloaded a couple new tracks last night. Now, every time I try to play a downloaded song in RB2 I get a message saying "[song] cannot be copied to the Wii system memory" .

    I haven't added anything new to my Wii's system memory since I started doing this so I'm not sure what's going on. My initial suspicion is that the songs I've been downloading haven't "cleared" from the Wii system memory as they've been copied to the SD card therefore leaving too little free space to copy the songs as I want to play them.

    Has anyone else ever experienced this issue? Does anyone know if there is a homebrew app I can use to check my system memory to make sure the songs on my SD card have been cleared from the system memory?

    This is really frustrating so I hope someone out there can give me some suggestions to clear things up.

    Thanks in advance,

    -Rob.

    BTW: I'm using a retail disc of RB2 but I have cIOS249 rev 13 installed on my Wii. It was working fine under rev13 before so I don't think it's related to the problem.

    You can view the total amount of free memory blocks by going into the "Data Management" area of the Wii Settings. Once inside "Data Management", select "Channels" to see the available space in that section listed as "Blocks Open."

    Ca In response...

    Thanks for the suggestion, but since my Wii has been soft-modded to the extreme that's not going to give me the information I need. I need to be able to take a good look at the files stored on my Wii and find the extraneous ones so I can eliminate them. Anyone have any suggestions?

    Um no you should propbably see how man available blocks you have free on your wii. If it is not enough to download said rock band/ guitar hero/ i wield a plastic instrument content that move some of your channels and content to your sd card. Hopefully you have system menu 4.x

    I have the newest system OS (I have LU64 wii) which I softmodded... Everything was working fine (including downloaded RB2 songs) until 2 days ago when I downloaded a couple new songs. I still don't know what's going on... I have cIOS249 rev13a installed but haven't made any other changes except installing HB channel and NeoGamma backup loader (both latest revs). This situation is very confusing...

    have you followed the advice above and actually checked how many free blocks you have?

    I can confirm for him that available wii system memory blocks are not the issue. I am having the exact same issue/error message and I currently have 1300 blocks of wii memory free.

    here is the exact phrasing of the error again:

    "[name of song] cannot be restored to Wii System memory."

    redownloading the songs fixed my problem. that's unfortunate, i really don't want to have to download all these songs again.

    oh well...

    My problem is on another level. I get the same "restore to system memory" error since I moved my songs myself using the PC Tools to the SD card, so taking the advice here, I tried just redownloading. But now I can't download ANYTHING from the music store, despite it saying the WAD's being installed correctly, AND all songs showing as purchased. It kicks me out and gives me this:

    "An error occured. Wait awhile and try again.

    If the same error keeps appearing, visit support.nintendo.com.
    Error Code: 204704"

    So not only do the songs xfered from the PC work, but I can't download anything either =/

    Anyone have any suggestions ????

    I'm running via Disc (I have the original disc), hard modded Wii, and installed all the latest IOS's and what not.

    This seems to be a widespread issue, as I'm in the same boat. I can download a song and play it off the SD card, but any song moved from my PC to the card isn't working. I don't have any idea how we'd go about fixing this.

    EDIT: Woops, my bad. I'm in the same boat as the original poster. Didn't notice the guy above me necro'd it. Sorry.
