    I do. I've got a 1GB sd card and a 16MB sd card for game save backup and movies and such. I mean with the internet channel, ability to send messages to other wii owners, sd card slot, keyboard functionality, games, movies, music, photos, weather, news, and plenty of web based IM who wouldn't? So anyway do you? Do you have a lot of sd cards? Share your stories and tips and tricks and whatever.

    NO. We use our Wii as a game console only. We don't even leave the Wii Connect 24 on. Our Wii stays off unless we're playing games on it.

    just tried the SD movie theory and it didn't work. Said that it wasn't a supported file. Makes sense in my eyes. What kind of movie files would work through the Photo channel?

    Thanks all

    You have to use a computer or whatever to copy movies to the SD Card. Actually, my Canon digital camera (A5## series) records movies which play perfectly on the Wii with all my other pictures- they're recorded in .AVI format.

    Since the Wii doesn't support .pdf or save/download files, I use it right now only for checking hotmail if I'm too lazy to open up the laptop. I do like that it could be used for more in an emergency (ie my 2 computers break.)

    So right now I have 2x Canon cameras (an A520 and an A530) with 1gb cards for each, and a 256mb card that is just for the Wii- backups or whatever.

    I have a Sandisk MP3 player (C2## series) in the mail right now which uses Micro SD cards and also plays video. Micro SD cards usually come with an adapter to fit into SD slots, so (later on) I might have to get one of those to pile mp3s and movies onto and use it on both the mp3 player and the Wii...
