    I bought a 2.0 GB micro. SD card. When i tried putting it into the wii, it said the item in the SD card slot could not be used. Do i have to buy something to make the SD card,work?

    you need to update your wii in order to use an sd card.

    i had the same problem, but if you get it hooked up to the net, you can get an update that allows you to use an sd card.

    I just tried the wii update and it said your wii is up to date. Is there any type of update?

    My SD slot worked before I had the update (it just would not let me transfer wii data onto it). Then I got the update and the SD channel was there and fully functional. Maybe try a different SD card? Or try to put some jpegs on the SD card then go into the Photo Channel to see if the Wii is reading the card at all. If all fails I'd phone Nintendo, they're very good.

    i see you mentioned using a micro sd card... just hoping you havent plugged that straight in...you have used a micro sd to sd adapter right?

    and as others have mentioned, you may need to have an internet connection to allow your wii to update (though some newer bought wiis may already have this function ready to be used)

    I bought a 2 gb mirco SD (Sand Disk) card from walmart. When i veiw the photo channel it says, only sd cards are compatiable. It says, If you are using a miniSD card or a microSD card, be sure to use the appropriate SD card adapter. Does this mean i have to buy an adapter, if so where can i buy one?

    Um so the solution to my problem is to buy an micro sd card adapter. Im on the wii data managment and i click on wii, then sd card. Then when i insert it, it will say "The sd card inserted in the sd card slot can not be used" So this means i need a micro sd card adapter? If so where can i get one?

    How you ever able to put it in the slot? A micro SD card is about 1/4 the physical size of a regular SD card. Seems like it would be just loose in there and not actually click into place.

    The wii was able to detect my micro sd card, but it said. "The sd card inserted in the slot can not be used" So im guessing i need the adapter. I know its a micro one cause i compared the one i have to the pictures on the Photo channel when they tell you about the sd card, and they show you 3 pictures of the 3 differnt types of the sd card. I am so very confused.

    No bought it for walmart for 40$ or 50$ cant remember its a 2GB Heres what it says on it.

    SanDisk

    Memory Stick PRO Duo

    < 2.0GB MagicGate

    So its not an micro sd card? Then how come it wont work on the wii. It works on my computer, i put one .jpg file on it, i try it on the wii again, it still says "The sd card inserted in the sd slot can not be used" So its detecting it but saying it cant use it. I have wireless internet so my wii is always connected and its up to date. Once again, im still confused, SD is sand disk right?
