    All I wanted to say is that an SD with 8GB works (non sdhc). Bought it from Hong Kong

    8GB non-SDHC? Sorry but it's completely impossible :S

    2GB is max, 4GB if the card is not standard... but 8GB no.

    If it's made in Hong Kong, it probably says 8GB but it is really 8MB [​IMG]

    did anyone ever buy 1 of those shitty mp3player from hongkong claiming to be 2-4-8gb then you'd get it and format the device because it crashed whilst uploading songs then you find out its only 512MB!!!

    fake memory

    maybe this is similar

    I wouldn't trust a 4GB non SDHC card. SD cards are only specified up to 2 GB, and SDHC cards aren't that expensive.

    Well it has 8GB and it has been working for a year now. I assumed it was SD since there is no SDHC label on it. But I'll guess its a SDHC then. Im just glad it works in HBC and with emus

    To test if it is a fake card you only need to fill the card with big files and copy them back to your pc. Don't forget to backup before you test.

    You've had it for a year and only now tried it in the Wii?..

    HBC (+emus) just recently got support for SDHC.
    Try to use it in the standard Wii data management mode..

    Oh well, ok then..

    If you'd try it in the data management screen (channels/saves) you'll see it doesnt work.
    It's supposed to work though in HBC.
