Just buy a different (and faster) SDHC card,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sandisk 4GB SDHC for Nintendo DSi (Electronics)
As another reviewer said, this is basically a class 2 SDHC with a Nintendo sticker. It was highly overpriced at the time I got it, and even now it's probably still expensive compared to an equivalent SDHC without the official sticker.
I only bought this because I was in a hurry placing an order for my DSi, and I supposed it would need some kind of particular SDHC (not standard) knowing how consoles are sometimes. My recommendation: just buy any brand at a lower price and higher specs and it will work the same.
As a side note, I don't use my DSi as a music player or as a camera (which are only for fun and not particularly good). I've only bought 6 DSiWare games so far (Just in case: DSiWare is Nintendo's digital download service for the DSi) since I basically buy cartridge games, and I haven't even used a byte of my SDHC. The Nintendo DSi has 256 MB of internal flash and DSiWare games are so tiny you can probably store a dozen... and I believe there are maybe a dozen DSiWare games worth buying. In case you are wondering, 256 MB (*8 = 2 Gigabits) is twice the capacity of a DS game cartridge.
Rounding up, an SDHC isn't *necessary* for a DSi if you're using it for what it is: playing games. You may use one if you will be storing pictures and music, but just get yourself another one.
