    an 8 gb one won't work! the wii doesn't support sdhc, those are the ones that are bigger than 2 gbs, or are labeled SDHC

    Well, when I had a GCN (I still don't have a Wii by the way) I bought a 16mb memory card and that held all the games that I ever bought. But with the virtual console games being down loadable, and other things I would say a 1gb or maybe 2gb card. But that's just what I am probably going to do.

    If you aren't planning on getting any VC games, then I'm pretty sure the system's 512MB is going to be plenty.

    Though if you'll be an avid VC'er, I'm sure shelling out 20 bucks for a 512 MB or 1 Gig won't hurt.

    Each Wii has a 512mb internal memory

    From what I understand the wiimotes just have enough to put a few Miis on, possibly a game save but I have only ever heard of a mii on it.


    Then for the original board poster,

    Go with a 1gb if you are ging to buy one, jsut because they ar available for about $15 on sale near the holidays and get as low as $10.

    The wii-mote has 8kb of space, which is almost nothing, I'm surprised a mii can fit on it, I doubt game saves can fit on it.

    Well on computers for example save files are not very big at all, they are usually 2-5 MB I believe, sometimes even smaller. I would say 1GB is decent.

    However, some brands of SD seems to work and some don't. No I'm not saying you need Nintendo labeled SD (although you're guaranteed it will work) any will do. Just read around for reviews. If anyone here has an SD card that actually works, tell us what brand you have.

    First post! I made an account just to say this:

    My 256mb flash drive can hold 3 n64 games and maybe 10 snes games and I still have maybe 80mb left (the flash drive also has all my school stuff on it, plus the emulators.) Fyi: Both the n64 zelda games were about 32-ish meg and conker's bad fur day is up around 64. All the snes games are under 5.

    Don't come and get on my case about emulation, I just want to point out how little memory games take. Unless you plan on spending more than 200 bucks on vc games, I wouldn't bother with a big mem card, just get one big enough to hold save files to take to a friend's house.

    Unless you plan on getting a lot of virtual console cames, don't bother. The built in 512 is more than enough

    Newegg.com Sells em for 15 bucks. That site is godly, its where I get all my computer parts from, they also have Wii Games there too.

    I should mention its USA only too.

    1GB is plenty, though the N64 VC games take up quite a bit of space (if you plan on getting a lot) but you shouldnt need anymore than 2GB

    PS They were that cheap on Black Friday

    Even if you do plan on getting VC games, as long as you don't get lots of games you'll still be fine. 512 MB is quite a bit, but you will need a card if you plan on using the photo channel.
