I'm having very spotty luck getting my Wii to read my MadCatz 4X memory card from my GameCube days. The original 1X Nintendo brand card is fine, but the Wii doesn't like the Madcatz very much. Once in a blue moon it recognizes it in slot one and always fails to recognize it in slot 2.

Is this a case of Nintendo trying to support their own cards? It works great on my GameCube.

its probably the card.. not compatibility issue. i have a clear 1X and an orange clear x16 from madcatz and they work just fine. however i have had only one card in the past die on me, and that was a matcatz one.. and it woudlnt recognize it in the slot. maybe thats your problem.. for your sake i hope not. have you tried it on another wii, or your old cube? nope.. just read it works on yoru cube.. hrmmm.. very odd.. mine work.

I have one and it started acting buggy about a week into using it, then it altogether stopped working about two weeks out. I'm going to try cleaning the contacts again, that might help (both of us). The Nintendo branded ones work fine, here too.

I've never had anything but trouble with anything MadCatz has ever made. Personally, i don't know how they're still in business.

I just bought my last MadCatz product--a Game Shark. It was dead on arrival, and when I googled the problem, I found out that every single Game Shark of that variety had the exact same problem.

I've owned one other piece of MadCatz hardware, and that was a rather craptacular N64 pad. InterAct blows MadCatz completely away, and InterAct is close to the bottom of the barrel themselves.

How is MadCatz still in business? Simple: People are just smart enough to fall for their "this many X storage" ads, yet just dumb enough to realize the extra storage comes at a cost. If not price, then reliability.
First party memory cards are the only way to go. Bite the bullet and pay up--you will never have to worry about lost game saves again.
