    homebrew, yes.
    wii system menu, no.
    anything over 4gb *and most 4gb cards for that matter* are sdhc cards.

    edit: re-read your question and not just the topic. yes you can use a standard 4gb card (non-sdhc) but you must have over 2gb filled on the card. (music, pictures, video, whatever) it has been known to cause corruption over time, so imo, your better off just using a 2gb or smaller card for wii system menu uses.

    Wii supports SD cards up to 2 GB. There's a way of using 4 GB SD cards (NOT HC) on the Wii. I found a trick somewhere (you have to fill 2 gig of the 4 gig SD with random data, then it will recognize it after some kind of reboot or sthg like that), but I deleted the link, unfortunately. Try Google.
