    However, gamecube cards were not an industry standard. If anyone wants to put the SD logo on a card, it has to be certified that it is exactly the same as any other SD card. You could put a gamecube logo on a pineapple if you wanted, and call it a memory card, the only thing that Nintendo could do about it is sue you for using their trademark.

    Who says that using a SD card other than a Nintendo branded one will void the warranty? The manual and the Wii itself say that you can insert any SD card from a digital camera and other sources. Where do people get this BS info!

    And he later revealed it was an assumption:

    Thanks for confirming. Rep to you!

    You'd be foolish to buy the Nintendo-branded card. Search sites like Passwird.com, newegg, tigerdirect, frys, etc, and you should be able to find a 2 GB card for under $30 shipped. I paid $26 for a 2 gig and my friend spent $40 on the 512 MB Nintendo card because he thought you had to use their card. Mine works just the same and I obviously got about 6 times the memory per dollar spent.
