    SD memory

    So does anyone know or has anything been announced about the SD memory specifically? Can I use the same SD card I use for my camera or will it have to be specific Nintendo formatted SD cards that will most likely be more expensive?

    i would say that it has to be formated by nintendo. and there are many diff. sizes for the sd slot, so the chances of it fitting are slim and the chances for it working are very little.

    why call it SD then?

    I dont see why it would have to be formatted by Nintendo - why else would they use SD other than the fact that those cards are already readily available from a multitude of manufacturers plus a lot of people already have these cards for their digital cameras/phones/mp3 players etc.

    Now, that said, Im sure that Nintendo will produce their own SD cards specifically for Wii(for they could possible work in other applicaions as well, but I dont see the point in calling it an SD slot if it is not compatible with a standard SD card. I also heard that Nintendo would have cards capable of 7 gigs of storage - can anybody confirm?

    actually all sd cards are the same size and technology so any of them should work, the wii may have to format the card though which would prolly mean that the card would have to be dedicated to the wii

    the different sized cards are actually different types of storage media, in addition to sd there is compact flash, xd, memory stick etc that are all the same concept but different implementations and physical characteristics

    The Nintendo SD cards will probaly be used to save virtual console games on and it would probaly only let you play in only on your wii to prevent piracy. You can probaly use other sd cards to listen to music, look at photos, and do much more on ur wii

    I think the reference to the 7 gig SD card was just sort of a number they were hoping to get to in the near future, but they wouldn't have them yet. At least that's what I understood from an article I read somewhere.
