    SD Card not working?!

    Okay, so I bought a Kingston SD card yesterday and decided to try and get some stuff onto my Wii. Problem is, it's saying the SD card can't be used.

    Now I know with some phones and devices you need to get the card authorized. Is there anything I may need to run to get this card to work on my console?

    Also, is there any restrictions on the Wii that I may need to know about? Such as Class 4 not being compatible, or any info like that. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


    EDIT: If there's any info about this issue on the website, I'm sorry. I've searched and found nothing. First post for me also, so I'm still finding my way around the place.

    Figures, I was trying to get more bang for my bucks. The same brand was selling 2GB cards for $14, and 4GB cards for $12. I did not know they didn't read up to a certain limit. Thanks for the info, much appreciated.

    Yeah that does kinda suck. I started off with a 2GB Sandisk and i also grabed a 8GB SDHC card and found out it wasn't compatible with the Wii.

    My fiance has a 512MB SD Card, so I am able to try and add hacks until I exchange the 4GB card for a 2GB. Now my problem is, that I need to go read up a step by step guide on how to setup hacks with the SD Card. I still haven't figured it out yet, haven't messed with it much either though.
