    I copied all the information (vc ww) from my 2gb over to my 4gb sd card. Now the wii menu is saying that my 4gb device cannot be used. How come? What do i do for the wii to read it? I'm on a 4.0 ntsc wii. Update: So i just put in an ordinary 512 mb sd card and that gets the same error so its no just sdhc specific. It's weird how my 2gb is the only memory card that works.

    It shouldn't, they're the same files and those channels are signed to your system. Try reformatting the card to FAT or FAT16 then copy the information again.

    ya make sure that you have legit or non legit vc/ww games copied to the sd card using the wii way, and then just do a good ole copy and paste.

    Maybe your 4 gig card isn't supported? It's an SDHC card, right? There's a compatibility page for SD media around here. My Kingston class 6 8 gig card isn't supported, for example...

    but its 4.0 so its supposed to support sdhc and its the exact same card as the one that does work just more gigs. I also downgraded and upgrade but this time i installed ios60 before preloader and i still get the same problem! [​IMG]

    Turn your Wii off, insert the card, and start the Wii up with the card already in the slot, should work then, not sure if this works with HBC.
