    I have a 1 gb Max Memory SD card for the Wii...About a month ago I put a unch of files on it for when I sent my Wii in for repair incase they got deleted off the Wii and it worked perfectly. Now I'm trying to save some more data on it but I keep getting the message "The device inserted in the SD card slot cannont be used" I can't seem to be able to use it. Any help would be appreciated...preferablly in the next hour before I leave :)

    Pop it in a computer and check it for errors. (If you can.)

    you may have to format it..
    i'd throw it into a computer and copy the files just in case
    throw it back into the wii and format it
    and copy the files back onto it

    i have no garanties on this, i've had problems with digital cameras and have lost pictures cuz of flash cards. sometimes technology does suck...

    is the wii up to date?

    I had a similar problem. If you unlock it it still might not work. Which the makers of these SD cards should take those **mn things off. Anyways, you either have to tape your switch really tight so it wont move, or throw it in your card reader a certain way. Can't explain how. It just need s to be put in in a way that the tab wont move

    Just buy a cheap card reader. You should be able to get one for less than $5

    Yeah get a card reader and format it. It should be recognized by the wii then.

    It may have become corrupted. A format should work fine

    These things get corrupted over time- ??

    Flash memory is especially volatile (in my opinion)- I don't trust them for anything really important.

    They don't corrupt themselves. Sounds like your Wii did it.

    It'll be fine
