    The SD card is to save games

    and anything that isn't over 2gb works

    I am not sure if some brands work better than others they are all really just the same thing.

    First, you don't need a SD card to save games nor can you save directly to one; you have to save to the internal memory and the transfer the save over to the SD card as a "backup".

    Second, if you want to know more info about what SD cards work and what don't use the search function; it has already been discussed. There are threads that tell you what will and won't work.

    You are false in both statements you made. As I said before, you can't save directly to the SD card. Cards over 2GB can work if they are not SDHC.

    The Wii won't fill up it's memory for quite a while unless you download EVERY VC title as they come out. Right now it works like this: you save to the internal flash memory, when you want to remove something off the internal memory you have to go to the options menu and copy it to the SD and delete it off the internal memory; when you want to use it again you have to copy it back to the Wii. . .at least unless they create an update that changes this.

    That expensive for an SD of 1GB size. 1 GB SD for $16 is a good price:

    When you download VC games you can save them to your SD card. You can also put photos in your SD card from your PC (you will need a flash card reader, or an adapter) so you can view them on Wii. You can also use a program that converts movies into a format that Wii can recognize and play by putting them into your SD card, than to the Wii for viewing. 'Wii Video 9' I believe it's called.

    There is no point in buying one right now unless you want to use the photo channel to display pics that are on the SD card.

    False. VC games go straight to the internal flash memory; there is no option to save to a SD card. You can copy them over to the SD card later but once a VC games is removed from the internal flash memory you can't play it until you copy it back or re-download it.

    Those are overpriced and since SD is a worldwide standard, Wii SD cards are no different than other brands other than the label on the card.
