    Did you even try to do it before posting this? It's simple

    Go to Data Management > Save Data > Wii > Then Select The "Wii" Memory Tab > Find Your Game, Click It > Click Copy... and then copy it on to the SD card!

    I went o Data Managment, then it gave me a choice of GC Memory card, or Wii. I clicked on Wii, and it is shown me was 2 blocks, one Zelda, one Wii sports. I clicked on Zelda, and the only option it gave me was erase.

    Exactly the same for me. People keep telling me to follow the same steps over and over but it does not work. Like you said, the only option is erase.

    Go to your internet options, update your system. If that doesn't work, make sure you're putting the card in correctly (I don't have an SD card so I don't know). There are video's up on youtube and I believe even a thread on this site some place of the actual process, see if you can find those and you'll know if you need an update. I know that if you've not updated your system you will not be able to transfer things to/from SD card. Or at least that's how the north american launch went.

    first try two things, make sure the write protected tab on the sd card is in the "unlocked" position. also like others have said, check the orientation and make sure you are not putting it in backwards.

    There are 3 possibilities
    1) You don't have the update that allows you to use SD cards.
    2) Your SD card is locked
    3) Your SD card isn't in right or is faulty.

    Once you're good on those things, transferring data is a breeze.

    what worked for me was put the card in and reset the wii. That's how I got mine to recognized, and I only had to do it once, I can now freely swap between my wii card and my camera card with out having to restart. Dunno if this is a definite solution but it worked for me

    First, update your system. That is a requirement for using the SD card.

    Second, read you damn manual. . .thats why they gave it to you.
