    My apps aren't showing up in the Homebrew Channel. It always used to work fine, but today I put a couple GameCube save apps on my SD card and now no apps will show up at all even if I delete those two. My SD Card is working fine in everything else, such as the Homebrew apps I have installed on my Wii menu. Any ideas on what's wrong?

    Press 1 (or maybe it's 2, I can never remember) and make sure SD is selected.

    If they still don't show up after that, make sure the *.dol files are named boot.dol in each folder under /apps, assuming that the program in question only has one dol file..some like retroarch have a bunch. :P

    I suppose this should've been posted in Emulation/Homebrew. Damnit.

    And yeah I've tried both of those. Tried resetting my Wii and re-inserting the card as well.

    Do you have a USB drive plugged in?

    So just to clarify, you have your apps set up like this:
    Code:
    SD:\apps\name_of_app\boot.dol
    SD:\apps\name_of_app\icon.png
    SD:\apps\name_of_app\meta.xml

    Yep. There are still apps in there that have always worked that I haven't touched at all.

    I really don't know what to say. If you have any forwarder channels (such as WiiMC), try launching it through that.

    You could always try backing up your SD card and formatting it.

    My forwarder channels work fine. I'll try formatting it up later. Thanks.
