    So I purchased one of these SanDisk SHDC 8Gb SD Cards for Rockband 2 DLC's but guess what? My Wii can't use the damned thing >:(

    Unfortunately I have no way of formatting this SD card outside of using my Kodak Easy Share camera and even after doing that it won't work. When using the SD Card with an old SanDisk USB SD Card reader Windows will mount it but say there is no disk inserted when trying to access it.

    Is there any hope on getting this to work?

    Cheers!

    You should be able to do it through your camera. I did until I bought a multi card reader.

    Use this tool to format it:

    SDHC cards do not work with RB or GH. Maybe RB Beatles and GH5 will support them.

    I went out and purchased a new SD Card reader that supports SHDC SD cards, formatted the card as Fat32 and the Wii still says it cannot be used (not trying through RB2 yet just the system menu, which is 4.0)

    So when you try to transfer a save for example to your SDHC card, the Wii says it can't?

    Right, when I try to transfer a game save the options to Move and Copy are greyed out. If I click on Copy anyway it says it cannot use the SD Card that's inserted.

    for rock band dlc try tricking the game by starting it with the 2gb sd card and switching it out at the main menu it worked for my 4gb sdhd card

    also try putting in 6gb of garbage files on the 8gb card (like movies or music) and try transferring saves on wii and see if that works

    I managed to fix my problem by booting up preloader and set it to use IOS60 (it was set to IOS30 by default - just change it to 60). Now my 8Gb card can be used!

    did you try the 2gb card after changing the ios to 60 with preloader, you might not have patched ios60 if both dont work
