    Hi been ill for a while better now.

    My 2GB SD card I needed to use in my PC so I formatted it, and when I checked the size the SD card is only 900mb wtf is using my space? i tried looking for hidden files but there are none that I can find, dose the Wii do this or is the SD card screwed.

    cheers.

    i put my sd card in my pc last night and there was a file called "private" on it. I opened it up and it had a file called "Wii". I then went into that and there was something in there that was quite big. I didn't delete it tho, didn't know what it was!!!

    I agree with that fake SD card suggestion. I heard that there are fake Sandisk cards floating on the net that fail shortly after they are used. I was hoping to catch a good deal there but I would rather go to the store. Usually when they are formatted, they lose space, but 2GB to 900MB is rediculous. You got a dud :mad2:
