    Question about the Wii sharing an SD card with another device

    I have a 2GB micro-sd card that I use to store music on my phone , and pictures from the phone's camera. The phone is an LG VX8300 (Verizon). The card isn't nearly full, so I figured I would put it to good use and use it in the Wii I'm getting tomorrow or Tuesday or whenever the store gets a shipment.

    Can I share the card between the two devices, or will I have to format the card specifically for the Wii? Does the wii put it's files in their own folder on the SD card?

    Thanks

    No, you can't play VC games directly from the SD card it must be on the internal memory.

    Yes you can move them to SD for storage purposes still. Or just delete them and re-download them later if you want to play again (you can re-download for free).

    that's good. how's the download speed? I have a 360 with xbl and the downloading is way too slow.

    The games are pretty small so it doesn't take much time. A minute or less usually.
