    SDHC-Cards (bigger than 2GB) only work on Firmware 4.0.

    If even the System Menu does not recognize it, the SD isn't compatible at all.

    If that won't work, forget it.

    Wii systems are very picky about which SDHC cards (above 4GB) will work; yes, even on Wii 4.0 Firmware. I've tried 8GB SDHC PNY and Patriot branded cards; both are buggy when trying WAD Manager and HBC apps.... I have heard Transcend 8GB SHDC cards work...
