    Hello, I just went to Future Shop to buy an microSD kingston 2gb WITH adapter! I formated it into FAT and tryed to put it in my Wii and it says that they can't use my card... Jeez, why?! Any way to get my Wii detecting it?!

    By the way, I bought a micro SD one because it's my only way to connect it to my PC.. (I got a MicroSD USB adapter to save files on my card..)
    Any of you guys experiencing this problem? Do the Lexar microSD card would work? I saw one at Future Shop.. Can you guys help me with this choice?
    Thanks!

    I have used a Kingston and a Sandisk MicroSD card to do all my homebrew on my wii, neither have had any problem, both 2GB.
    Perhaps you have a fake MSD, or try FAT32 see if that helps.

    I'm using a micro sd without any problem. Try reformatting in FAT16 with another tool...maybe it should help
