    Hi,

    I'm just wondering when I finally get around to getting a SDRAM card for my Wii can I just copy my Virtual Console games over to it and then erase them from the onboard flash RAM or will I need to delete then redownload them?

    BTW how good is Virtual Console! WOO HOO!

    From what I have heard, you can copy them to the SD card, but if you want to play them, you'll have to reload them from the card back onto the main system ram.

    Let us pray for some kind of firmware update.

    It's not really "SDRAM". Secure Digital cards are a NAND flash format. :)

    I think you can copy VC games to the card, but they MUST be on the Wii's internal memory to play. Also, they're tied to your particular Wii, so you can't use them on someone else's (for pirate protection, obviously).
