-------------------------------------------
Alright. Here's the thing. I went out and spent $35 on a 2 GB SD card, and I'm at the hospital playing SSBB on their Wii. So come to find out, when I go to the memory section, I can click on any other game and it asks me "Copy to the SD card?" but when I click on Brawl it simply says "This game cannot be copied"

So what do I do? Is there any way to do this? If not, I've convinced the hospital Staff to let me buy them a new hard drive and take that one, since it has all my Data, but now I'm researching online and it looks like the Wii doesn't even have a Hard Drive. Just a Flash Drive. Can that be removed? And is there any place that I can buy a new one to give to the hospital so that I can take my SSBB Data home with me?

Please Help. >_>

~Thanks a ton to anyone who can fix this~

And please don't direct me to SSBB Forum. It's more of a hardware/memory issue so I'm sure there's plenty of people here who can help.

Yeah, Brawl is one of the few games that cannot be copied. I believe Elebits and Trauma center also have this. I'm pretty sure there is nothing that can be done about it.

^^ Nintendo doesn't want save files to be copied. Their logic is that you can simply give your save file to someone else, without that person having to do any work.

That's because Nintendo likes to make people work.
Can't you save some other stuff to it as well?

My response in your other thread:

It might be because of the extremely large file size. Most games I have take up 2 blocks, while Brawl takes up ~130 blocks.

I remember you could not move large files on the GC either.

I wouldn't know how to do something like that.

Ah well, thanks for everything, everyone. This sucks but looks like I can't do a Damn thing about it.

Well it's my copy. The hospital doesn't own any, so it won't matter.
