Check the system software version for your Wii console.The Wii must be updated to version 4.0 to read SDHC cards.Remove the SD or SDHC card you wish to use for memory and verify that it is the proper capacity. Insert your SD card in a computer to check the file format you wish to use with the Wii console.
The problem is that your NuVue 560 Digital Photo Player is only compatible with SD cards, not
SDHC cards. You bought a larger card for your older Digital Photo Player, not
noticing that it was SDHC (or not knowing that it mattered). The new
card doesn't work, not because it or the Digital Photo Player is broken, but because
it's not compatible.
Cards up to 2Gb are generally SD.
Cards of 4Gb are generally SDHC.
Cards over 8Gb have to be SDHC.
(There are exceptions. Sometimes, manufacturers make 4Gb SDHC
cards but some have errors; they disable half of the chip and sell it
as 2Gb, but it's still SDHC. 4Gb cards are almost always SDHC because
they're cheaper, but 4Gb SD cards do exist. They are so rare that I've
even seen a guru on this site claim they don't. I did own one once, but
it was very expensive and turned out to be so unreliable that I had to
return it. I don't recommend
looking for one, because of the problems.)
Your solution is to go find a 2Gb card, and be extra sure that it
doesn't say "SDHC" on it. Ask around your friends: someone who has a camera that can use SDHC cards might have an older 2Gb card that they'd be willing to swap ;-)
Make sure the SD card is not bigger then 2GB.If it's bigger than 2GB your version on Wii System Menu need to be 4.0 or higher.Check your version on System Menu(click settings and look in right up corner) and if you need make update.
The original Blackjack will not recognize anything larger than 2gb. Sorry, but you just wasted buying those 4 gb. cards. I found this out the hard way too when I bought my daughter a 4gb card for her Blackjack. I have a BJ2 which will recognize the 4gb cards.
SDHC memory cards are relatively new, and are sadly compatible with only the newest model cameras. For your model camera, recommend a maximum 2GB standard SD card. Fortunately, these days a 2GB card is very inexpensive.
The phone is designed to only hold a 2gb card. this is because a 4gb card uses high density memory the phone software can't read. There is a hack out there that I learned about at heliocity.net but it did not work for me.
In my experience, every mp3 player/photo frame/etc with a card reader has a MAXIMUM memory limit for the type of card that it can read. It is possible that the Sansa player can only read 2GB Micro SD cards or smaller - and thisi nformation may not have been available when they printed the manual. If you have followed all instructions, and it still will not read the card, try switching to a 2GB Micro SD card.
