    heyoo guys,

    i asked some friends and on a german smash board but got no answer or help. so i though maybe you could help me.



    My Wii is able to play P:M 2.6. But i lost my SD-Card so i had to use another one. I found a SD-Card 2GB in my 3DS (Zelda Edition). My 3DS and my PC is able to read this Card, but my Wii won't. i tried formatting (? sry for my english skills...) twice but still my Wii won't read it for some reason.

    Does someone know what to do?

    Did you format it in "FAT32" or "FAT"?

    Uhm, did you do exactly the same thing with the old SD card? Sometimes you miss one small detail or file that just ruins everything

    i don't think it's my SD card. Even when i try to open my SD via Wii Home-Menu, my wii won't detect it. But there's no clear reason for this B*tchmove :(

    But my Wii does read SD Cards. My 4GB SD-HC and even my 32gb SD-HC work fine but as you know i can't use them to play P:M :(

    I was having this same problem, until I realised it needs to be a 2 GB model or smaller as opposed to any random size SD card with 2 gigs left on it. Is the card you're using 2 GB or less?

    Yes it is 2 GB, seems to be a problem with the SD card

    Make sure your card isn't locked when it's going into the Wii. Check the little switch on the side.
