Wii can't read gamecube memory card

I want to play gamecube games on my wii but the wii doesn't know that i'm putting in the gamecube memory card in, so i can't play saved games. My wii will only read the memory card when it is in slot B, but that slot won't let me play the games, it only allows data copies. I think it is broken.

Theory #1:
Your Slot A is corrupted. You gotta send it to Nintendo, they will fix it.
Theory #2:
Do you use third party memorycards? Like bigben or madcatz memorycards with a lot of blocks like 1000 blocs or similar memorycards? Don't buy them, they're bad and it will blow up your save datas. Buy original Nintendo Memorcards, they're much more expensive BUT they will never delete data.
Theory #3:
Do you have the right version? Because you can't put an japanese Memorycard into an american Wii. Did you ever put an not american memorycard into the Slot A? If yes, that could be the reason why your Slot A won't work.

How do you get the nitendo game cube to play on the wii


The Nintendo Wii already comes with everything needed to play GameCube. GameCube disks are loaded and unloaded from the system in the same way that Wii game disks are used. To play the games you are going to need a GameCube controller and a GameCube memory card to save progress. On the top of the system (if the system is vertical) or on the side (if it is laying down) are two flaps, one which opens to reveal the controller ports and the other reveals the slots for the memory cards. To play GameCube, simply select the top left square from the main menu (like you would for any Wii game), select start, and then use the GameCube controller to play the game.

How to Rip Nintendo Wii Games: VIDEO GUIDE OPEN HERE>>>

If you want to rip, or back up, games for your Nintendo Wii, it's not going to be easy. Nintendo Wii and Gamecube disks both spin in the opposite direction from normal disks to prevent them from being ripped. But there is a way to get around this by ripping the game directly from the Wii onto an SD card.

Step 1 Make sure your Wii is modified with a Wiikey. Without one, you will not be able to rip games for it. You can have Wiikey installed for you, or install it yourself.
  • Step 2 Plug in the Gecko adapter and SD card into your Wii's Gamecube memory card slot. It will then ask you to load a disk.
  • Step 3 Load whatever Wii or Gamecube game you want to rip. It will save the files on the SD card, but the card is too small to fit the whole game. Once it has dumped all the information it can hold, you must remove the SD card and put the files on your computer. Erase the card and put it back in the memory card slot and continue copying the game's information. For a Wii game you will have to do this three times.
  • Step 4 Once you have the entire game on your computer, they will be in usually three separate pieces. Combine them into one file.
  • Step 5 Burn the game file onto a 4.7 GB DVD disk and play it on your Wii. Due to the Wii's protection software, only modified Wii's can play ripped Wii games.

    How do you use a Gamecube controller on the Wii ?


    Assuming the Wii unit is situated vertically, look on the top of the unit. There should be two flaps. Lift them, and you will find plugs for four GameCube controllers and two GameCube memory cards. Plug in the controllers and go.

    Bare in mind that only a very small number of Wii games actually use GameCube controllers. The controller slots are primarily for playing GameCube games on the Wii, which the Wii can do right out of the box, provided you have the controllers and memory cards.

    Need instruction on how to get an iconcepts wil/gamecube controller to work on my wii.


  • 1 Gather up any GameCube controllers that you want to use with your Wii.
  • 2 Open up the top of your Wii. If you unhook the latch on the very top of the system there should be a sort of secret compartment that holds four controller ports and two memory card slots.
  • 3 Plug your GameCube controller into the ports located in the top of the Wii. If you're plugging in more than one, don't worry about attaching them in any particular order.
  • 4 Load any GameCube memory cards that you would like to use into the memory card slots located next to the controller ports on top of the Wii.
  • 5 Feed the GameCube game you would like to play into the disc slot on the Wii

    I put a game cube game in to the wii and it says to insert a memory card into slot A so i put a 128mb memory card into slot A andi turn the wii on and it says no memory card found in slot A WHY?


    It might be talking about the GameCube memory card slots, not the SD card slots. There should be a door on the top/left side of the WII. See if it's talking abou that.

    My wii wont load any games


    We had similar problems after buying Super Smash Bros Brawl. I noticed that the Wii could read which disc was in the system but could not load it in order to play. This seemed like a shortage of memory to me (but the error message does not indicate a memory issue). I bought a 1 gig sd memory card for the Wii and now it works perfectly. BTW the kid at the Best Buy store did not think this would work, but it did. Good Luck.

    Yes you can play gamecube games with no emulators. The memory card slots and controller ports are located on top.
