    I don't think you can save games on it. I don't have it but other people say that you can only store photos and videos on it.

    SD card purpose

    Woah...lots of speculation on the SD card. Here is what you can do and why you need one for the Wii

    1. The Wii flash Memory is only 512Mb, now you can get 1 Gig and 2 Gig SD card and keep your saved game files on the card so you don't run out of space on the Wii memory

    2. You can put Photos on the SD card, but this only works in the photo channel so far. Good for slide shows on your T.V. if you have family and friends wanting to see pictures taken from a digital camera. You can also set music to the slide show, but see point #3.

    3. Music- Yes, you can put mp3's on the SD card, but make sure the files are not corrupt. Certain games like Excite Truck allows you to use your mp3 files and you can play your music in the photo channel slide shows

    4. Saved Game Files- Want everything unlocked on certain games? look for saved game files on gamefaqs.com and you can put those saved files on the SD card and load them onto the Wii so everything is unlocked without the long hours and frustration of actually playing the game!!!

    5. Make sure the SD card is white and has Wii on it or it might not work. Haven't tried regular SD card yet, only the approved Wii SD card.

    Hope this helps

    I dont understand all this sd card stuff considering i have never had one and i have lots of games and lots of vc games saved onto my wii and it hasn't even come close to taking up much space.

    Why would you want a Nintendo brand (or white with wii on it as you put it) sd? By buying a Nintendo brand one you will have limited warranty on it and pay more. I suggest instead going to a computer store and buying a decent brand like Kingston. On a good brand you will get between 5 years - a lifetime warranty, and pay less than a Nintendo one.

    I really don't see the point in buying an SD card you'll only use on your Wii to save games with, seems excessive.
