    I have two 16gb SDHC cards.

    One kingston, one transcend, both have this annoying 4gb limit on files which can be transferred.

    I'm trying to play brawl on usb loader now that my wii laser has finally crapped out on me.


    Anyway me to split brawl and rejoin them on the SD card? And it would still work?

    And would a 4gb winrar file with the files split, if i were to extract them to the same place, and they were to join, would this meet the 4gb limit?

    I ask because I currently have a scrubbed jap brawl(4.7gb) but all my save data is in ntsc-u brawl, so I'm downloading a full brawl for later. As i need my brawl fix now @_@

    I plan on getting an HDD sometime soon, but this is USB/SD loader isn't it? How are these guys getting games onto the SD card? Can it only be the smaller wii games?

    Use SuperDump.

    and they do it with WBFS Manager.

    that limit is imposed by the file system, i believe...as long as its fat or fat32 formatted, thats your threshold. i use a usb drive, so im not entirely sure, but can one format an sdhc card as wbfs?

    your sd cards have 4gb limit because they are formatted as fat or fat32.

    you cant just throw the iso on the sd card and play it.

    all wii isos besides brawl are 4.37gb

    which means you cant even put any wii iso on a sd card.

    usb loaders dont use the file system fat or fat32.

    they use wbfs.

    you have to change the format of it to wbfs with a wbfs manager.

    use wbfs manager 3.0.1

    after you format it, use that program to install the iso on your sd card.

    it will automatically scrub it and put the game on your sd card.

    Fat32 has a maximum file size limit so its not just you in regards to your question it must be formatted as WBFS for it to play on wii so there is no file size limit there.

    I did not really understand your question fully but thats it.

    Well this dvd-5 brawl doesn't work.

    Probably because i ripped it from the DVD i burned it too many moons ago, and thought it would work cause i didn't want to redownload.

    But I wanted some way of testing, so i tried the old homebrew channel iso, and the screen just flickered.

    Does this mean I did something wrong, or does this only work for actual games?

    Wish there was a small test iso.

    Wii Play is really small, only 92 MB. If you legally own the game, just download that and try it.
