I need to know how do I get my 8gb back do I need to reformat it into it original fat 32 format or do I need to download a special tool for my sd card? OR There Isn't any possible way to fix this.

    Yes you will. You may have to do it through windows disk manager to be able to delete the partions and reformat

    If you are using linux(which I assume you are using), you should use a different computer that has windows and what not. I really don't exactly know what you are doing, but from the sound of it you want to hack you Wii, right?

    The only way to run Wii Linux is to hack your Wii.

    I Tried to delete it and it said the operation is not supported on removable media and then I tried to delete both and it didn't work :sad: (Sigh) I just got to find a way around this.

    Perhaps Panasonic SD formatter will get the job done? https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_3/eula_windows it's really the only thing I've used for formatting SD cards in the last few years.
