Until today everything worked fine. Today I downloaded new Gateway 3.6.1 and I tried to copy lancher on my SD card. I got error that says This file is large for card and I can't copy it but I have over 2 gb of free space. Then I put my SD card back and tried to boot gateway mode but after Gateway sign screen turns black and I can't enter gateway mode. I backup files from SD card and tried to format SD card with SDFormatter but It says that Memory card is write-protected and please release the write protect switch. I looked on internet how to do that but none of the ways are working. So in short way can't copy files on my SD card, can't boot in gateway, can't format SD cards. Can someone help me what to do? Thanks. :)

Sounds like the write protect switch is broken. there's a tape method to fix that. Might want to just get a new SD card though.

Oh I see, then I guess i should get a new SD card. But If I transfer the files from this SD card to new one will everything will be ok, or I need to install new system or something?

If you have emuNAND you'll need to create an emuNAND on your new cars, and use the emuNAND tool to backup your emuNAND and reinject it in the new card. Plus copy over files.

When i try to backup my emuNAND from gateway menu it says there is no space on your SD card even I have more then 2gb. It looks like somehow my SD card is blocked or something. :(

You should be able to back it up on your computer using the emunand tool. There's a sticky about this - it's titled moving emuNAND from one SD card to another, or something along those lines. Good luck :-)

Ok now I will go to buy new SD card. Now I need help with everything I need to install on that new SD card. What I need to download and how to install? Where can I find EmuNAND and SysNAND because I can't backup my own?

    Apparently Nintendo adapted the 3D All-Stars emulator, instead of their old Virtual Console emulator - or, if nothing else, copying what fans have done.

    I wonder...how would the gaming scene have changed had the Wii (and its bullshit motion controls and criminally neglected Classic Controller) failed?

  • AkiraKurusu @ AkiraKurusu:
    Microsoft certainly wouldn't have experimented with the Kinect, that's for sure. Would Nintendo have released something like the Wii U early?
    Gift
  • AkiraKurusu @ AkiraKurusu:
    That would've had a different name, so as not to tie it to its failed predecessor (something the Wii U dearly wished it has gotten anyway).

  • Veho @ Veho:
    PlayStation 2 already had that EyeToy thing before the Wii, and a whole lot of games supported it. Microsoft would have had something like the Kinect even if the Wii failed.

    For some reason, some Amazon reviews said it was a scam 'cause it launch there before they made an official launch on their webpage...anyway, according to people, it's good...it was gonna be my first option to buy when I wanted something to farm in games automatically, but then I backed down since tax fees and shipping would have costed me a fortune to Mexico...
