Wii game message:wiI error message the file cannot be used because the data is corrupted" and the options on the screen are ... delete saved data or continue without saving. Which should he choose and can anyone tell me why this happened. He did try another wii game to make sure that it wasn't the wii console. Any help would be so much appreciated.
Thanks very much, Snoopy123

Enter the error code when prompted. The console may have turned off when the file was being saved.

That means your SD card is corrupted and you have to get a new one if its a SD card which it sounds like if you tried another game.

It could be be the SD card even though the other game did loaded up. And there is no error code at all just the information that I have stated. But it's wanting to me make a choice on either of these choices " delete saved date" or "continue without saving" I don't know what to tell him to choose. And could you tell me what type of SD card I need to get? Thanks you all for your quick replies.
Thanks again, snoopy123

It might be that that file is corrupted on the SD card not the whole card. Like if you were playing a game and took the SD card out or turned your Wii off in the middle of saving it could do that to the save file. If those are his only choices well than its up to him. He could either play the game without saving or delete the file. More than likely though if he wants to finish the game than he will have to delete the file and start over again.

Obviously, you turned the Wii off when it was loading or saving, and now he'll have to start from scratch, it cannot be fixed. It's like a ink letter, and you just spilled water on it. Or you scribbled all over it. It's gone for good. Lesson: do not turn the thing off while loading or saving. Or you just scratched the SD card/disk on that one place, of all places. The place where the data's stored. What bad luck.

Oh, and just about any SD Card works. Just get it under 4, 8 or 10 gigabytes (I'm not sure which size in specific, the Nintendo site should say [if you haven't got the newest update, use your manual instead, it will be too new, your Wii would be outdated]).
