Wii won't work after "incorrect memory card" was inserted.
So, my youngest inserted a disk, and then inserted what he thought was the memory card containing info for that game. He received an "incorrect memory card" error, so he tried another card, and another, and another (4 total tries), at which point, the lights flashed green, yellow, red, then powered down.
No, after unplugging the unit, and replugging, the power light comes on however, if you try ANYTHING else, (install a disk, press reset, press eject, etc.) the power light goes out and won't come back on till it's unplugged and replugged.
Nintendo wants $75.00 for a warranty repair...
I deal with computer/laptop hardware 70 hours a week. This has me stumped. So does the charge from the manufacturer. It's not been physically damaged, unless installing a memory card that has no information pertaining to the game does damage.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

You shouldnt need a memory card to save wii games it has 512mb internal memory.unless your trying to play gamecube games on it.the wiis security features are incredible if it cannot recognize a controller or memory card it will power down.make sure you are using a SD memory card because it will not accept anything else.it will power down for safty reasons.

The Nintendo Wii already comes with everything needed to play GameCube. GameCube disks are loaded and unloaded from the system in the same way that Wii game disks are used. To play the games you are going to need a GameCube controller and a GameCube memory card to save progress. On the top of the system (if the system is vertical) or on the side (if it is laying down) are two flaps, one which opens to reveal the controller ports and the other reveals the slots for the memory cards. To play GameCube, simply select the top left square from the main menu (like you would for any Wii game), select start, and then use the GameCube controller to play the game.
