    Very confused!

    Hello, everyone. I am confused. A few people have told me that ANY brand on SD cards will work with the Wii. But, the Wii manual says there is some sort of a list of compatible SD cards on support.ninento.com

    1) I can't find the list.

    2) What is the correct answer?

    P.S. I would just get a Nintendo SD card but they are way too expensive.

    PLEASE help me!!!

    Yea im pretty sure nearly all SD cards will work - they probably just have to play it safe and tell you which ones are 100% compatible

    Any SD card works. What they meant by brand is type. Only original SD cards work. Micro and mini SD cards dont fit in the slot.
    P.S. Mines a DANE-ELEC 256mb card.

    1GB Kingston SD with Reader, $16. Not too bad.

    true, they wont fit, UNLESS you have the adapters...which effectively make them the exact same size so they will, obviously check the product you are buying before you go ahead and confirm payment

    Yea, and you can get a mini/micro SD to SD adapter pretty cheap - but mini and micro SD card are generally more expensive than standard SDs in the first place, so unless you find one really cheap there's no point

    That's true (the part where it says so unless you find one really cheap there's no point), but if someone got/had a mini/micro SD card before they got the Wii, that person would have to get the adapter.
