jeeze since i joined this forum its been a learning curve to say the least. i am about to order me an SD card. if i am correct it has to be less than 2gig and SD not SDHC. in danger of sounding totaly redundant whats the difference between SD and SDHC.
cheers folks for all your help i just gotta mod the Wii

SDHC = SD High Capacity, meaning they are bigger than 2 gigs (at least I have seen that all cards bigger than 2 gigs are stamped SDHC). Older devices are apparently not built to handle such sizes.

It's not just the size, it's the technology. You can get non-HC cards that are 4gb (although they aren't very common).

It's not as simple as that, all the recent homebrew titles now support SDHC cards it's only older stuff that has not been recompiled/updated since November and which requires filesystem access that still needs plain SD cards. Caveat emptor.

pubzombie is right, you do need to use a regular SD card no bigger than 2GB during the Soft-modding process because the Wii's OS doesn't support anything larger AFAIK.

I assume once you've performed the softmod you can use what you like within the capabilities of the hardware.

I didn't mean to imply that SDHC cards can be used for the Twilight Hack (or for transferring channels/save files either), only point out that they can be used for homebrew.
