    running out of save game space....

    hey guys,i only bought a couple of wii games,and my 2 wads yoshis story and paper mario 64,and when i look at my save space i barely have anything left for all the other games i am going to buy in the future,is there a way to save my games on my sd card,for example saving my ssbb file on the sd card rather than using the wii memory itself,like by using some kind of app or something?i did buy a memory card that said its for the wii and gamecube but when i put it in my wii i can only save gamecube games on it....
    thanks for any help.

    Yes you can copy them to sd card from Wii settings.But after copying them you cant use them until copying back to Wii.About that memory card.That means you can use it on Wii not copy wii game save files.

    Try a virgin sd card or something that is not used for homebrew things an empty one

    Some game saves can't be copied to the SD card but you should be able to transfer yoshi's story and paper mario 64 onto the sd card if there's enough space. personally speaking i don't remember having problems running my vc games from sd card

    -edit-
    There is an app you can download from the homebrew browser that lets you transfer any save file to an sd card...but having never tried it myself I don't know how well it works. Unfortunately I can't remember the name of it either

    You can enable "remove save game copy protection" hack in priiloader. Also use SaveGame Manager GX to copy saves.

    You can keep them on the sd card you already use for apps. But you will have to copy them back to the Wii if you want to play that game, with that save file.

    Either that or you can always free up some space by moving some of the unnecessary channels to a SD card. That's what I had to do. Ran out of room, so I started looking at Data Management in the Wii settings. Save games were only occupying 1 block each, whereas channels were anywhere from 50 to 300+ blocks. In addition, I also deleted a bunch of "filler" channels, like the Internet channel, Nintendo Channel, Forcast Channel, and so on. Then I moved a bunch of WiiWare titles to the SD card, thus freeing up oodles of space for save games.

    Now you can just run the Channels off of the SD card. Is it a little less intuitive? Yes. Is it a little more cumbersome? Yes. Is it necessary in a console with so little internal memory and more than 5 WiiWare titles? Yep.
