    For the Wii, you should definitely avoid SDHC cards (anything 4GB and over, usually). They cause lots of problems with homebrew.

    To answer your question, try Future Shop. They have a Duracell pack (including a 2GB microSD card, an SD adapter, and also a USB adapter for the PC) for just $15. You'll have a hard time finding a better deal. Tested on the Wii and works great. [​IMG]

    unless you really need an sd card for something you should consider an external harddrive way more space for your money

    Agreed I have a san disk 16GB SDHC card and have had no problem with homebrew on my Wii! Any application that is important has already updated to include SDHC!

    I agree get a 4 to 8 GB SD. But, there will be a few apps that don't work. I cant remember exactly which ones as I have been running an external drive for a while. I believe GXGeo, and one other don't have SDHC compatibility.

    One benefit to an SD card in addition to an external drive is that I can run 2 different button configurations of the emulator. I have all my games on one, and my Street Fighter II button layout on the SD.

    I went through a few SD cards that just don't work too. Make sure you check the compatibility list. I also had a few cards that conflicted with that list though. One that should have worked, and didn't, and vice versa. But your chances are better with the list.

    I would recommend that you buy SD card from Sandisk, Kingston, or Transcend only. As 3rd party brands tend to cause problem with the Wii. I have a Kodak 2GB SD which Wii is having a hard time to recognize, even formatted with SD formatted.

    Also, why would you need a Class 6 and above SD card? The increased speed isn't really benefiting the Wii. Those extra speed are only useful for Camera or Camcorder.

    I got a 2gb SanDisk white SD card that says "Wii" on it from Walmart for $11 last year. If you really want 8gb, you can find 8gb SanDisk microSDHC cards on ebay for about $12, but some homebrew apps are fail with SDHC (anything over 2gb).
