    Hi Guys,

    Ive bought myself a 128GB SD card for the WiiU (to play loadiine backups), ive formatted using exFAT but the WiiU (or loadiine should I say) doesn't pick it up. Ive tried using DOS, but get the below;

    C:\Users\Mike>format /fs:FAT32 F:
    Insert new disk for drive F:
    and press ENTER when ready...
    The type of the file system is EXFAT.
    The new file system is FAT32.
    Verifying 119.2 GB
    The volume is too big for FAT32.
    Format failed.


    Ive tried a few programs that claim to be able to format it to FAT32 (EaseUS Partition Manager, minitool Partition Wizard) and they seem to work, but on ejecting and reinserting the card, it goes back to NTFS / exFAT

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Oh god, I embarrass myself sometimes. I tried again after you said it worked, I didn't click apply to commit actions previously.

    Thanks for your help
