    is a certain SD card needed? i hear it effects wireless

    I remember reading somewhere that some people are having problems with certain SD card companies and it is effecting their wireless connection.

    Anyone out there bought an SD card that effects the Wii in a negative way? What are those companies names?

    Also if you have a SD card that works flawlessly, what are those company names?

    Let's help each other out and make sure non of us Wii-owners get stuck buying a crappy SD card!!

    ***NOTE
    im thinking about buying a 1gb kingston sd card for cheap on buy.com
    http://bensbargains.net/category/33

    that's a site to a bunch of cheap SD cards. what do you guys think?

    Does anyone know if "high performance" SD cars work better on the Wii? I don't want to buy a lower end one and then have laggy games or anything. Also, about how much space does one virtual console game take up? Thanks for any input.

    Oh, and I don't mean to hijack your thread or anything, I just thought that this would be relevant and useful.

    Having a slow SD card will not lag games... At most it would slow down the photo channel.

    OK, a few things to get straight:
    1. All SD cards are the same, anything that is going to call itself an SD card has to fit specific standards to ensure that they will work (and if you open up any off-brand card, you'll see almost all chips are made by sandisk)
    2. Games don't know the SD card exists (save for MP3 playback in ExciteTruck), it won't affect your gameplay, you online performance, or anything else.
    3. An SD card is not vital to your Wii's existance. Unless you plan on downloading a whole lot of virtual console games, the only use for it is the photo channel. There is plenty of memory for game saves on board.

    I have not heard anything about SD cards reducing the performance of anything in the wii, however i guess reading and checking the card may delay loading a little but i cant see a reason, but unless you plan to have big files e.g. movies, lots of music, then you dont really need one as an essential its more of a luxury


    Spoiler Alert!

    SD cards can't affect internet connection. The only thing the speed of the SD card matters for is the photo channel and copying files onto the card. Some are faster than others. It shouldn't have any other effect on the Wii itself, the games, or the internet.
