    I got wiiu folder with apps folder inside that...try to boot up HBL and just says "SD mount failed"....it works fine with my 32GB card but I have my 3DS stuff on that and since the power cable on my Windows machine decided to stop working...I can't use the 32GB card....all I have to use is my Mac....the 64GB card has a 22GB FAT32 partition on as the first partition

    That's probably why it's confused, try using guiformat to format to FAT32, and go into Mii Maker and save a QR code to it, for some reason that seems to fix it in most cases

    is it really necessary to partition? I'm using my 32GB card since I cloned it with Carbon Copy Cloner....there is no option for "unallocated space" on Mac....
    I forgot to mention in my post that I am using an 8GB Wii U, so I know 32GB will work for that...

    I dunno how robust the Wii U's mounting is for multiple partitions which is why I say, the formatter will wipe it and make it all one partition, but since you're using Mac I dunno what alternative formatters there are, hm

    Well, i tried with and without partition....I don't know why it won't work with my 64GB card but works fine with my 32GB card.....GuiFormat is a Windows program.....if my Windows laptop worked, I could try it there...but the power brick just stopped working the other day...

    You said you used a Mac, yes? If so, your problem might be that Disk Utility re-formatted your SD Card to become GPT instead of MBR.

    If you're using macOS Sierra, I can confirm that Disk Utility allows you to format as MBR (Master Boot Record) instead of forcing everything you try to partition/format to GPT (GUID (Genetically Unique Identifier) Partition Table).

    do I need to partition the card? Will it still be readable in the computer once its got RedNAND on it so I can copy files to it for a USB install?

    No you should not partition the card and yes you can still copy files to it after setting up rednand.
