    Hi everyone,
    I recently was able to use wii manager to download wad files into my wii which I then send to my SD card. However, every time I try to access my SD card to play the wii ware, it freezes...anyone know why? Thanks,
    Kevin

    yeah, I installed the wads and then transfered the wiiware games into my SD card. But everytime I try to access my SD card, it just freezes. I want to post up a pic of what's in my SD card but am not sure how to upload photos on this website -.-,

    Do the games play fine from the system menu? Are the games from your region? I can only think that maybe you need to use the region-free sd hacks from Preloader or Startpatch. It's weird that the sd menu just freezes, and you don't even get to see the banners.

    I honestly, I haven't tried playing directly from the main menu but yeah, it freezes before the banners even show.

    It says, " Load boot.dol/elf" etc. and just freezes....
    (When I click on the SD card "channel section")
    Also, I am trying to upload a picture but it doesn't seem to be going through.

    A guy in another post suggested deleting the Bannerbomb files off the sd card. I think he's right, and this might be your problem.

    When you install a wad to the system menu, you just click the banner (channel) and press start to play. You should never see a message talking about .dols while launching WiiWare from the system menu.

    Well, it's really confusing to me b/c I don't actually know what to delete. Like, when I check the files in my SD, it doesn't seem to show me where the wads I installed are. Are they like hidden? That's why I struggle deciding which files to delete -.-,
    *I still have the wads in my Wad folder but I don't know where the ones I installed are placed*
    HEre is link of what's on my SD

    Well, I dislike constantly editing but I must go to sleep now as I have a curfew [​IMG] but I appreciate all the help. I'll check first thing tomorrow morning and thanks for the help!

    I don't understand the method you described in your first post. If you want to play WiiWare, then just download the wad from a RELIABLE source, and use the latest Wadmanager to install it to your system menu. I think that's the method most people use because it works.

    SD:\private\wii\title\aktn

    Delete the aktn folder. That is bannerbomb. That is causing your freezing.

    Thanks! I'll try it out! Much appreciated fellow tempers! [​IMG]

    Edit!! IT WORKS! Now the question is... why did that file even exist if it causes the bannerbomb to freeze? [​IMG]

    I did download it from a reliable source and then use the wadmanager to install it on my system menu, but I didn't have enough internal wii memory space, so I clicked on it and it asked "Would you like to move it to SD" and I clicked yes, but as I try to access my SD card, it just froze. I haven't tried the suggestion but I hope that clarified some confusion


    Questions!!!! I know this is a bit off topic(actually very off topic now that I got the wiiwares running) did any of you guys ever have trouble transfering the channels from the SD card back into the wii system channels? I was able to download and play the wiiwares but when I moved it to the SD, I couldn't move it back to the wii system channel. Does anyone know why? Thanks again!

    Hmm, I am not sure how to unbrick it but I used Cios60 (I think C is supposed to represent "custom"?)
    I didn't see the wad folder from the Cios60 but after installation with the wadmanager everything just started to load and run smoothly
    Sorry if this didn't help odja
