Does anyone have any definitive information about the lifetime of the Wii's NAND memory, and how it might be affected by such things as the way the Wii Menu 4.0 copies SD card channels to NAND before running them? Unbibium 16:40, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

Yes. Each block is rated for 100,000 erase-write cycles, per the datasheet. Combined with the minor amount of wear-levelling done by IOS, this is enough to last a lifetime. --Bushing 21:53, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

FAT special values

I've come to the assumption that 0xFFFE is an "unused" cluster. Can someone confirm, deny, or clarify? I also don't see 0xFFFD anywhere in my Wii's NAND.
