    Ones that probably won't corrupt you Wii, even though I've never heard of such things, are the official Nintendo ones. I recommend the 1019; it's only about $12 on Amazon.

    What you hear doesn't have to be true. I doesn't need to be marked as Compatible with the Wii, all GC memcards are compatible with the Wii.

    $12 is expensive? I guess you could opt for the 256 black one from Nintendo.

    Have a read of this...
    http://gbatemp.net/t228605-gamecube-memory-cards

    It's a work in progress, but some good links to check out. A lot of reading and research was done to narrow the cards down, I get all of them featured soon and will be testing each one out with "problem games" and homebrew backup apps.

    No Gamecube memory card can corrupt your Wii. A GC memory card can corrupt itself if it's really bad, but I have multiple 3rd party cards and none of them have ever corrupted. Buy any one you want, you'll be fine.

    That's the one to get. It's an official product, and probably has more space than you'll ever need.

    EDIT:
    Good overview, but the datel memory cards suck.

    I like using the third party memory cards because you can use gamecube memory manager to transfer saves to the sd card and back. You cant do this with the official memory card.

    Yes you can with one of the homebrew apps.

    Read here : http://gbatemp.net/t228605-gamecube-memory-cards about NuGaSa, it crashes but DOES work with official cards many people have reported. Also there are hardware options for backing up saves *note* some saves are not able to be restored to a diff card or after a format no matter what card you use.

    No the app wont crash with 3rd party card. NuGaSa crashes if you use an official card, but still works.

    There are 2 other apps you can use also if you have a 3rd party card.

    I use a 3rd party card that has a ton of memory. I dont remember how much but it was like 5x the official ones when I bought it and it works fine.
