    Well, first you should check the size of your SD card. Typically, the SD cards used in cell phones are mini editions, not standard size. The Wii uses standard size SD cards.
    It's only used for game saves and such, not too much memory will get used up.

    Leche, I'll do your body good.

    I don't think Wii is compatible with anything larger than 2 GB...

    It sounds like I'm horny for Link...

    Yea, just use the 2GB. You really wont need that much space for games and I heard that the maximum limit of pictures is 1,000.

    I have a 1GB SD card and it's got either 6 or 7 thousand (can't remember which one) "blocks" and each game takes up 3-5 blocks so far for me.

    Yeah, SD Micros, but nearly every [if not all] Micro SD card sold comes with an adapter to fit into regular SD slots.


    There are a few confirmed cards larger than 2gb to work in the wii, but it's hit and miss. 2GB is the safer bet.

    But I honestly don't see the need for it at all unless you want to share game saves online or with friends. I mean...in the days I played on the PS2, I barely filled up the 8mb memory card, and people are worried about running out of space on the 512mb internal Wii memory space? Pft. Ya'll are crazy and paranoid.

    Just don't go overboard. The 64mb micro SD card for my phone that I don't use anymore (since I got a 512 for christmas) is more than enough to carry stuff like my Madden game saves over to my friend's house. Your current cards are far more than enough.

    P.S. Oh yeah, as far as what the SD card is used for: Nothing required. It's for you to use the limited photo-gallery capabilities on the wii (in addition to a sort of "paint" photo-editing), but who really loads up pictures to display on the TV? Other than that you just use it as a means to transport game saves (which are hardly that big) to other consoles or to your PC (for internet uploads/downloads). There may be other uses in the future, but not yet.

    Oh, right, completely forgot about those.

    But, still, how much space could they possibly take up?
    I have an n64 emulator on my computer right now. The program is roughly 4mb, an additional 10mb for over a dozen game saves, and the largest ROM (game) is under 10mb. And that's for an n64 emulation, the most recent generation available on the VC.

    How much space could VC titles possibly take up? Enlighten me.
