Can't play transferred games?

I transferred my games from my Wii to my Wii U months ago, and just recently tried to play LttP, but it wouldn't work. I transferred the data in order to use save files, not specifically for VC games, so I didn't try playing until recently. I bought them on my Wii, transferred them to my SD card, and when I got the Wii U, transferred stuff from my to my Wii U, and now it won't let me play them on my Wii U off my SD card (or let me transfer them to the console itself). Is this a common problem? I tried searching, but didn't see anything.
(And yes, I do mean playing them in the "Wii" mode of the Wii U)

If the games were on the SD card, you have to download them from the shop again. (No charge, just a hassle.)

Okay, thanks. Can I then just delete them and use the ones on the card, or do I have to delete the ones on the card and transfer the ones I redownload?

Just delete them and re-download them

same thing happened to me. I had to delete each game and redownload them. I have 50+ games so it was a huge hassle and a pain in the butt.

Recommendation: have a laptop or tablet near by and put on a movie while you do this. It could take a while. :(
