    New Wii demos bigger than space left on Wii

    My Wii is at 3.4u and there are 4 new Wii demos available for download on the shop channel I want to try. However the size of the demos is more than what I have left on the Wii. The Wii let's me download to SD but since I am at 3.4u when I exit I don't see the SD card icon so can't start the games. Is there a solution so that I can write the demos to SD and be able to run them without having to update my Wii to 4.x ?

    I can download 3 of the 4 demos if I only have 1 on my Wii at a time. ie I install one, play it, delete it and then try the next one. One of the demos is too big even after I delete unneeded items from my Wii.

    I am reluctant to update my Wii since I don't want to lose the ability to have my games on a USB drive. That way my kids don't damage the original disks and they can switch games without me. It is not to bypass copyright.

    updating to a 4.X system menu will not stop you from usb loading. I think most people go to 4.1 for the sdhc abilities.Cant you access the sd card through the wii menu in data management?

    How do I only go to 4.1 vs going to the latest (4.3 I think?) ?
    Are there any cons to updating? I have on purpose kept at 3.4 since it seems to work for everything we play - "if it ain't broke don't fix it"
    I can access the SD card from the Wii menu in data management but I don't see anywhere where I can run one of the demo games from the SD card. I think that functionality is in the 4.x System Menu. If there is a way to run the Wii Shop channel downloaded games from SD without having to update the system menu then that is what I really want.

    Guide: Softmod ANY wii



    New 3.1-4.1 Softmod for ANY Wii

    Both of these guides have instructions for upgrading your system menu.Be sure to follow the directions! Install patched IOS60 first or you will brick! I agree with the "if it ain't broke don't fix it", but the 4.1 sm gives you the better SD functionality.
