    I bought my 64gb sd card for loadiine at the time,is there anyway I could install the wuds on the SDcard instead of having to purchase a usb drive?

    You can't install wii u games into an SD card.
    You have to use a HDD or an USB, or the internal memory of your wii u (NAND).

    edit: by installing wuds, you meant installing game with wupinstaller, right?

    Not right now. And you don't install WUDs. You need to use Wii U Helper or uTicketdownloader to download the games from NUS. They come in the form of a bunch of files that you copy to the "install" folder on your SD and install with WUP Installer.

    you can try using the sd card with a card reader plugged to an usb port, it should work as an usb drive but it might be a bit slow I guess.

    but you would need an extra sd to store youre homebrew on it and with enough free space to have the files you want to install on it

    I use a 128 GB MicroSD card in a USB card reader, and it works quite nicely. If that does not work for whatever reason, there's always Loadiine for titles without good online features.
