    Yes, it will work. What will not work is a SDHC (Secure Digital High Capacity) card. The card you have linked is not SDHC and so you can use it with the Wii.

    to clarify, no SDHC means a 2gb cap on the cards you can use?

    Yes, since more than 2GB cards are automaticly SDHC.. ie, all 4GB+ cards are SDHC

    Nope thats not correct. Standard SD cards come upto 4GB. Kingston, Transcend, Sandisk all make them but they are becoming less frequent as most newer devices use SDHC cards. here is a link for one of those

    Newegg.com - Transcend 4GB Secure Digital (SD) Flash Card Model TS4GSD150 - Flash Memory

    So the question is that can you use a Standard 4GB SD card in a Wii or is it limited to 2GB as well?

    I can assure you all, and as others have already mentioned, the limit of the memory cards is 2GB. I've personally verified it with Nintendo directly.

    If I'm not mistaken, I think SDHC cards start at 4GB and go up from there...and yes other 4GB cards are standard speeds. You don't need SDHC anyway on your Wii...thats more for digital camera's writing between 1-5 MB pics to memory.

    Take it from me and other Wii owners, this card is cheap and works:
