Can you save game save files onto the Wii's SD Card? If not, can you tranfer that file onto it? I'm pretty sure you can but I just want to be sure.
You can move and copy select Nintendo Wii, WiiWare and Virtual Console game saves that are on a Nintendo Wii console to an SD Card or SDHC Card that is inserted in to your Nintendo Wii console. While downloaded content for select Nintendo Wii games is saved to and accessed from the SD Card while the matching game is being played, such as downloaded songs for Rock Band 3 and The Beatles: Rock Band, the Wii itself does not access save files from the SD Card directly. It can only access game save files that are on a Nintendo Wii console at the current time.
However, save files for any game that features Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection features can not be copied or moved to an SD Card. These games have their save files locked to the Nintendo Wii console. These including Sonic The Hedgehog 4: Episode 1, Tetris Party, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, GoldenEye 007, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, ExciteBike: World Rally, the Internet Channel, Netflix, Hulu Plus, and Wii Speak Channel 2.0, just to name a few examples. Some select Virtual Console games also have the save files locked to a Nintendo Wii system.
To make it a little easier on you
- Games that support Wifi Connection (Online) CAN NOT be transferred
Just a tip, if your Wii gets reformatted you won't be able to put your data on it until you play the respective game for 1 hour. I remember having this issue after my Wii got repaired.
That's not fair. Especially since online play is exactly like not online play. I get why people use it to play with friends, but why does everyone think playing with strangers online is fun. What's the difference between that and playing against the computer? To hide the shame of playing video games alone maybe?
sorry, but you cannot copy wi-fi enabled games to an SD card and transfer them to another wii. nintendo did this so that people can't cheat, and copy the same online profile to multiple wiis. that would cause chaos
I still think that's unfair. What if you're not gonna use the online, which I still think is a waste of disc space? The only game I'm ever gonna use it on is Brawl and the only reason I'm gonna use it is to be a taunt matcher.
yeah well i'm sorry but that's just the way it is. Nintendo's just playing it safe. I also wish that i could transfer my brawl data, but in the end, it's better that we can't. cause cheating is very annoying on online games.
Does this mean I'll have to restart Mario Kart 7 and Mario Tennis Open when I get an XL because they have a mode I never use that is no different than the mode I do use? So not fair. Please don't tell me I have to restart Streetpass Plaza too.
The general save data of games are stored in the game card, so you don't need to worry. However, the streetpass and spotpass data are stored on the SD card, so you just put the SD card from the 3DS into the 3DS XL.
