    Hello everyone,
    I am one of the few, the proud, a wii owner...So the other day i was over at office max and saw a 2 gb Sandisk brand sd card on sale so i said what the heck and got it for my wii (for extra storage room) so i brought it home and pluged it in and went to the data manager to move some crap over form the built in save to the sd but it said quote (The divice inserted in the SD card slot can't be used.) so then i went to the photo channel to see if i could format it or something but nope it says that the card is unuseable.I also checked if it needed an update but it says it dont (its at version 2.2u)

    Is it a compatibility thing or is the reader just bricked

    p.s Ive tried 3 different cards in the wii am i just missing something? Thnx!! HuNtEr

    Well I'm almost positive the 2gb is the card for Wii, I have a little blue sandisk card that works fine with my photo channel. Umm, if it's connected to the internet, manually search for updates. Maybe the card is a lemon...??

    That's Sherwoods, btw. Lol, thanks..a good guy with the username Stranger made it. I was very impressed. Try to add photos on that brand new and empty sd card first from your digi.

    Try blowing into the sd slot.

    Check your wireless connection.

    thats all I can think of man, I'm sorry.
