    What size do you use, if you use one that is...
    Right now I have a 128MB that I only use for tracks on Excite Truck, but Im looking to pick up the 1Gb Wii SD soon, for future reference.... what sizes do you use/prefer?

    Don't even bother with the Nintendo licensed SD Cards, any of them work however the SDHC don't. You are paying like an extra 10 bucks just for the Nintendo name on the Wii SD cards. Personally I'm getting a 2GB one for about 26 bucks from newegg.com

    but you gotta think, will all that space really be neccesary? I probly figure after a while of having games Ill probly get rid of a few and just erase the old data... or do you all use them for other use besides the wii?

    If you are just worried about saves, then 2gb should be enough for tons.

    If you want it for VC games, well 2gb will hold probably all vc games out in the next 12 months. if not more.

    I'm pretty sure it just says up to 2gb because 4gb sd cards weren't readily available on the market when the wii was being developed.

    the wii can't use sdhc, 2 gb is the max regular sd cards can go, hence why they made sdhc

    I got a Sandisk 1GB at newegg for 30 shipped with $6 mir.
    Basically to test out stuff on the Wii like the Video player.
    I just got Excite Truck today and I saw how it picked up the Songs on my SD Card. Pretty cool.

    The SanDisk 2Gb should work fine, thats the company that Nintendo uses I think.

    Hey, I've got a question. What all can you put on an SD card (and what all can you use on the Wii)? I mean, other than music/movies/pictures, is there anything else?
