    What SD card should I buy?

    I found this at BigLots.com:
    Kingston® 4GB Memory Card for $12.00

    Is that good?

    Its a SD HC

    Should I just look for a SD without HC ?

    What brands should I look for and size of card?

    I am planning on usb a USB HDD soon.

    Thanks Guys!

    You could better buy an 2gb Sandisk SD without HC. The Wii doesn't like SDHC and it is only supported from 3.4 if I'm correct.

    I would go for a standard 2GB SD Card to start with, Kingston or Sandisk branded will do you well, then get a larger SDHC if you really must.

    So I take that the Official SanDisk Wii 2GB SD Card (Wii) doesn't work?

    Or is that Official Wii Card ok to buy?

    Sorry, I never tried that one. A regular SD card formatted to FAT16 or FAT32 will work. The Wii brand is only moneymaking I think.

    2gb only, 4gb is hc, and no good.

    I dont know where you are, but you can get them from bestbuy for 12 bucks, and newegg for 10.

    Well, I have 3 options at my local Walmart store:

    hxxp://www.walmart.com/search/search-ng.do?search_query=sd+memory+card&search_constrain t=0&tab_value=93_Store&ic=48_0&ref=501457.501458&s earch_sort=4&selected_items=+

    Dane-Elec Memory 2GB SD Memory Card $9.00

    PNY 2GB SD Memory Card $9.00

    SanDisk Wii 2GB SD Card (Wii) $9.00

    I would've loved to get a 4gb card, but I guess there all HC.

    All 3 options are good. But make sure you don't buy HC.
