    So, I just bought an SD card, and when I try to put it in my wii, it does not show up in the data management screen. I also tried two others that my dad had, and those didn't show up either. Am I doing something wrong, or what? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Have you tried formatting it as FAT32? You'd have to do it with a computer though, I don't think the Wii has a format function for SD cards...

    It should work as either FAT16 or FAT32, but give FAT32 a try. If it's already formatted that way, you could give reformatting it a shot...

    I'm using a crappy PNY card (2 gb) and although it's slow as molasses, it does work...

    I bought one of the ones nintendo made for the wii from toys r us. It works on my wii but the other day I took it to my cousins house so i could play my game files on his wii but it didn't show up on his. I think it must be the update u get when u first get a successful coneection to the internet on ur wii. I think u need it to be able to use the sd cards with ur wii. I have the update on my wii and it worked. My cousin doesn't have the update and it didn't work on his.

    And also i thought u were suppose to be able to download mp3 on the card from wii games. How do u does this if u can?

    Mine recognised the one in my TomTom and today it refused to recognise it, I'm puzzled.

    I lied I found it even cheaper.

    2GB SanDisk Nintendo Wii SD Card £18 I shall be buying one soon.
