To me it sounds like your card is the problem. Your suppose 2 use 1 gig cards or 2 gigs at most. You can't use that kind of card that your using. I haven't updated either one of my 2 wiis in a while or read the faqs recently , but from what I remember that card is the wrong thing 2 be using. You got your wii for a great price. Almost better than what I got my 2 for.
