    After installing HBC, do I need to keep that SD card in there forever? Or can I take it out, format it and what not and then put back the original files after I'm done. Or can HBC run without and SD Card but instead a USB?

    Also, how many blocks are there in 1 GB?

    There is an approximate of 7500/7750 blocks on a SD card of 1 GB.

    The latest HBC does not need a SD Card, just a HDD with a FAT32 partition. Make sure there is an "apps" folder in the root of your hard drive.

    The HBC doesn't need anything to run, though to launch apps you need a SD card or USB HDD formatted to fat32. Apps go inside an Apps folder on the root of the drive. AFAIK it needs to be plugged into the usb port on the right hand side as well.

    You can also load apps through Wifi.
    (eg. Wiiload)
