Default Dumb question about SD cards and Wii

Right now I'm using a generic SD memory card with my Wii. Is there any reason to get the SanDisk one with the "Nintendo seal?" There are a couple files that I can't copy to the card I have and want to know if the supposedly Nintendo-approved one will allow it. Or, is this whole thing just a marketing trick to get people to spend far more money than they could on a standard SD card?

That's what I figured. Thank you, kind sir. Can't wait to sit down for more Red Steel tonight.
