    He is probably using an mmc card, they look pretty much the same as an sd card but wont work in the wii.

I don't remember seeing a way to format the SD card in the Wii but I usually like to format the card in the device that will us it if possible before I use it. Just a thought.
    Thanks. I haven't found a way to format the card in the Wii, but I'll try reformatting it in my PC.

    As far as I can tell, it *is* an SD card. Probably my card is just defective, or it is one of the (few, I hope) SD cards that is actually not compatible with the Wii...

    The card does have a lock on the side. I have tried to use the card with both the lock on and off, but no joy...

    As I said in a previous post, my card may be just defective, or it could be one of those SD cards that is actually not compatible with the Wii...

    Another possibilty is that the SD card slot in the Wii could be defective. I guess I'll just borrow or buy another card and try.

    Thanks everyone for your replies.

    You could try formatting it FAT16, some cameras (and maybe the Wii) wont read FAT32.

    I know my Fuji S5600 wont read the xD card if its formatted anything other than FAT12 or FAT16

    Give it a try anyhow.. I could be on the wrong track, I havent bought an SD card for my Wii yet, will be checking this thread closely prior to doing so

    I've tried reformatting the card (both FAT16 and FAT32) but no joy. The local Game shop sells ScanDisk cards. The guy there claims those work well with the Wii, but I haven't tried one of those yet.

    PleoMax (Samsung) cards don't seem to be compatible with the Wii, though...

    Cheers,

    I ended up buying a LEGEND 2GB SD card, works well, didnt require a format before I used it.. threw some mp3's and some pics on it and slideshow worked well through the photo channel.

    So i can safely recommend the LEGEND SD Flash cards.
