    I recently started looking into the homebrew scene and it said I needed a wii sd card to execute some programs. I checked out deal extreme and they had quite a few selections...Any advice on which one I should get?
    Thanks,

    In my experience; pretty much any card will work.

    I've just been using 2gig Kingston MicroSD's with an adapter. For awhile, I'd used a Trancsend 512mb as well.


    I'm not sure what the consensus is now on SDHC cards though. I think (and could very well be wrong) that the SDHC isn't support by Wii software, but can be used with Homebrew.

    true, personally i think a 2gb SD is only required... fairly decent one like kingston or whatever [​IMG]

    so 2 gb is sufficient memory card aswell? - yes and no. you can't use sdhc cards on the wii, so a 2gb card is the biggest one which you can get (but hbc, most emulators and some other homebrews run with sdhc cards).
