    SD Card questions

    I know you are able to "Copy" things to the SD card, like saved games and channels, but are you able to run thos of the SD card for space savings?

    Example: Save the "Internet Channel" to the SD card and run it from there?

    Welcome to one of the biggest shortcomings of the Wii: the near uselessness of the SD card slot combined with insufficient internal memory. Here Nintendo has the ability to allow for seamless expansion based upon individual user needs, but instead they needlessly handicap the memory expansion slot so that your only options are cumbersome and hardly sufficient.

    You should be able to add a 1GB SD card and have the Wii report 1.5GB total system memory, and that's that. But no.

    from what I hear they are releasing another "edition" Wii (to screw those of us who own this one) with more memory and DVD playback, im not sure if you'll STILL be able to play games from the DS card even in the new edition.

    From what you hear from where? Please give a source, as that sounds suspiciously like my own made-up bitter hunch that I said elsewhere on these forums a while back.

    If you're going to believe everything you read on the internet, you need to turn off your computer now and step away, for your own safety.

    Go play checkers or something.

    Actually the SD card will be very useful for Brawl. I heard you can save replays, and your own custom maps to the card. Nintendo plans on using it for Wiiware in the near future.

    Right now I agree it's one of the biggest flaws for the Wii. It can do so much and has been nerfed to do so little.
