    I have already tried searching the forums and the search is bringing up an error. Forgive me if I am being a tard. I wanted a 4gig SD card on my wii and have been reading around the net that unofficially a few of them(lol none really) might work like this Transcend (NON-SDHC) 4GB Model# TS4GSD150.

    Does anyone have any 411's on this or can point me in the direction of some help.

    Here's the problem: SD standard only allows cards up to 2GB. You need SDHC for 4GB and bigger. However, the Wii only supports SD and not SDHC.

    If you find a 4GB SD (not SDHC), then it is non-standard, and likely to not work (even in SDHC device it might not work).

    Trascend has seen to be the 'official' Wii SD cards. I would say that it would work, since it is a non-SDHC card. The Wii can only read SD's; it cannot read SDHC cards. I'd say go for it, if it doesn't work you can always sell it.

    Somewhere in GBATemp I've seen someone who claimed he used a SanDisk 4 GB microSDHC with Adapter in his Wii. [​IMG]

    Somewhere in GBATemp I've seen someone who claimed he could play backups on an unmodded wii just by inserting them upside down. Don't believe everything you read [​IMG]
