Topic: "Wii Mode" download problems on Wii U

Posts 1 to 2 of 2


Hi. I need a little help. After a Wii to Wii U system transfer, I was attempting to re-download all of my games from WiiWare/Virtual Console to my new SD card in "Wii Mode"... I have downloaded double-digit amount of games, but only ran into problems while attempting to download select N64 Virtual Console games... It seems that after multiple attempts, these games will not download to an SD card NOR system memory - when attempting to download these games to an SD card, there is an error message that states that the SD card was removed, and when attempting to download to system memory, it supposedly completes the download, but then does not show up in the Wii Menu, and is marked as a question mark "?" channel in the channel save data... These games are: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Paper Mario, StarFox 64, and MarioKart 64. I wanted to know if anyone in North America that has purchased any of these games to their Wii U, or transferred them from their Wii to Wii U, if they can try re-downloading them to their Wii U console to see if there is a problem with the service. I think there might be a problem with the service because after this was discovered for those games only, I sent in my Wii U console for repair, and the same problem is occurring, once again, for these games only. Okay, Thanks!

EDIT: It seems a few more games can be added to this list, they are: Street Fighter 2 Turbo, Tecmo Bowl, Ice Hockey, Zelda 1, Zelda 2, Gunstar Heroes, and Altered Beast... Can anyone else corroborate that these games will not download to your Wii U in "Wii Mode"???
