    I'd like to use my Wii to look @ snapshots on my big screen but it only takes SD cards. My Olympus camera only uses XD cards. Is there any way around this? There are USB ports on the Wii but I'm a little,,,no, a LOT scared to just plug into one with my camera. I thought about using a USB card reader, but again,,, I don't wanna endanger my Wii. Any ideas?

    You will need to buy a card reader that has both SD and XD slots, and then use your computer to copy the contents of your XD card to an SD card for use in the Wii.

    If your computer has a media card slot which usually has a place for both SD and XD cards, you can just transfer the files. I believe most computers have slots for these now. I know both my laptop and desktop do.

    Hey guys THANK YOU!!
    I found a card reader/writer @ Wally World for $20 that does it all. The slideshow feature of the Wii is a great way to look @ pics with the family. I can now see on my 55" screen anything I can get into my PC.
    Thanks again,,,SD
