Wii problem: “the SD card simply doesn’t register”

Wii= SD save support?The lucky guys over at Joystiq were able to test drive the Wii around a week before the unit’s US launch. So they were having the time of their lives playing The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, but when they started saving their game progress, they realized that the system won’t recognize their SD cards.

According to Kyle Orland of Joystiq:

Our tests have shown that the SD card simply doesn’t register on the memory management screen. We’ve tried this with a number of SD cards, both empty and full of data, and while picture viewing and MP3 playback worked fine, the system refused to recognize the card as a game save storage device.

Unfortunately, the console’s manual says otherwise: “copy and delete data found on the Wii System Memory and SD cards.” The official Wii website also says the unit will have an SD card slot for portable saves, and other Wii forums like WiiLoaded.com attest to that fact.

So, what went wrong? Well, since the Wii has not been launched yet, we do not know. Hopefully, Joystiq will get the answer from Nintendo when they finally get in touch with them.
