Knoxximus at cheapassgamer.com found a way to use a 4GB SD card on the Wii.
That's actually interesting. So basically, you just fill up your 4GB non-SDHC card halfway and slowly remove the buffer data as you naturally fill it?
Im thinking about getting the sd card. Its not expensive or anything.
I think I might try this too. I've ran out of space on my SD card anyway, so its about time I get a new one.
I a 4GB non-SDHC card, it's slow as hell, and my sd card reader is broken, and it needs formatting too. My camera reads it as -192(about) pictures remaining. I lost it though. The Wii did pick it up, but really slow. 150x I think... It sucks hard.
Newegg link is down. You copied from the post and did not quote it eh? Link shortening as always
This is the one I have 'cept blue
The link got messed up when the message was copied and pasted. This is the SD card...

Sounds like a pretty good solution, which could provide a much faster transfer speed.
I've never understood why transfer speeds, game loading speed, etc all vary so wildly on the Wii. Sometimes it copies quickly sometimes slow. More perplexingly as discs can't fragment is that sometimes you start a game and its starts up almost immediately, sometimes you are on a black screen for over a minute.
I'm not 100% when this happens, but I do know the Wii copies the mail dol file of some of your recent wii games to its nand for faster booting... perhaps you decided to play a non cached game?
Sorry about the link Ill fix it.
I made an excel spread sheet about some of the SD formating size issues you may run in a post a while back, just incase you have any issues in formating your SD 4GB Card;
Use a dummy file. Here's a 1GB dummy file (but the download is only 626 KB).
