    SD card issue: "This card is not usable."

    Hi,

    I have a PleoMax (Samsung) 256GB SD memory card. It is supposed to be a "high speed" card (10MB/s). It works fine on my PC but my Wii console doesn't seem to be able to read it. I get a "This card is not usable." message whenever I try to use the card in the Photo Channel.

    Do the files in the card have to be in a particular layout or directory structure? All I have in the card is a few JPEG pictures from a Cannon Powershot digital camera.

    Thanks in advance!

    Anot

    PS. The web browsing channel is really cool!

    I really doubt that he's talking about a 256gb card. I imagine it's a typo. Anyway, You probably are using some other kind of card that's just the same size.

    Yes, it was a typo... I meant 256MB, Sorry about that!

    I still don't know what is wrong with this card

    Did you previously use it in a camera or something that re-formatted it into some proprietary format maybe?

    No. I tested the card in my PC out of the box with no issues whatsoever. It is formatted with the FAT32 file system as usual

    Thanks.

    My 2 GB SD works fine. I do a lot of photography and once in a while I have a card I need to reformat to get to work. Can you move the data to chip you HD or something, reformat the card and move the data back? 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.
