    My SD card reader has died. I already have Homebrew Channel, CFGLoader, ULoader and USBLoaderGX (all 3 forwarders) on my Wii. What are my options to continue using my USB loaders and Homebrew? Thanks a million!

    The HBC can read files form the USB Drive, so copy your Apps there using same structure.

    And then be careful, as trying to fix a brick without SD may be real tricky.

    Thanks for the info. What about the cover art, disc art and forwarders? Will they survive the transfer from SD to USB? Funny thing is, I have BootMii as boot2 and can read and write the NAND in there, just not once the Wii is up. So, I should be somewhat safe. Crazy huh?

    Have you tried another SD card?

    Yeah. I have tried 3 of them. All with no luck. I get "The device inserted in the SD Card Slot cannot be used" error when clicking the SD Card menu and Homebrew Channel just shows bubbles. For the life of me, I can't figure it out. Hopefully someone can teach me how to use my fat32 USB drive to load homebrew apps, usb loader forwarders and images, games, etc.

    Maybe you have a stuffed System Menu or SM IOS.

    Or can the SD Menu of the Wii read the SD Maybe?, and not Homebrew ?? Other IOS issue?

    If bootmii can use it, the slot cant be 'broken'??

    The Wii System Menu cannot read the SD at all. The SD icon lights up blue when I insert the card though. BootMii reads it with no problem. Here is my HackMii installer log: http://pastebin.org/468464 I am lost!
