    Hey guys,

    I read somewhere that this SD memory card was compatible with the Wii. For some reason, my Wii is not recognizing this card when I go into the Wii settings. So is this not the right card?

    The update that was mentioned in a previous post was to allow you to copy you game-saves to the SD card.

    You should still be able to view photos stored on the SD card in the photo channel even without doing any sort of Wii updates.

    Thanks guys! I have RoadRunner (cable internet). How or where do I connect to update? Do I need a wireless router?

    Do you have a wireless router?

    and like mentioned before, you'll need to download the firmware updates, there's two initial updates needed..

    thought you should be able to view any photos stored on the card with or without the updates, but if you bought this specifically for your Wii then I'm assuming it has no pictures.

    If you're unable to connect to the internet, Nintendo mentioned letting people mail in their Wii's and they'll perform the update for you. Not sure if this is a sure thing, and if so, how much, if anything, it costs. Maybe somebody here could clear that up for anybody else wondering the same thing?

    No, there's no ethernet jack. It has built in wireless. You can either get a wireless router or get the USB ethernet adapter that connects to one of the USB ports on the back of the Wii which you can connect a wired connection to.

    As much as I hate pointing this out for the simple fact you're most likely doing this for attention, but is there a reason you're so unneccessarily rude?

    It was an honest question, just because you know the answer doesn't mean the whole world should, too.

    Right. Well you can show the world how you deal with your insecurities by calling us names all you want, but it's going to take a lot more than pieces from an argument two 6 year olds would have to offend most, if not all, people here, especially coming from someone whose screen name looks like it probably also doubles as his eHarmony.com name.

    Anyway, that's not entirely true dorky_me, if you're out a wireless router, check out the link to the ethernet-to-usb adapter I sent you, it PLUGS IN straight into your Wii using one of the two USB ports located on the back towards the top (assuming your Wii is sitting upright in it's cradle).

    No **** sherlock. I am glad you could figure that out. However you don't need it because you can connect wirelessly if you get a wireless router.

    Ok, well you apparently know this already, obviously he didn't. Note the key phrase I used mentioning this option if he does NOT have a wireless router. Since you claim you don't need this because you can connect wirelessly, I'll point out the two way road here and say if he doesn't have a wireless router then he doesn't need wireless options because he can connect directly.

    Plus with most decent name-brand wireless routers going for about twice the price (or more) of this ethernet/usb connector, this is going to be a more cost effecient choice, and not all people really know how to setup a wireless network.

    Not everybody can be the God of infinite Wii-knowledge, so get over yourself.
