    Check the lock switch. It's on the side of the SD card itself.

    Thanks for the guide [​IMG]
    I'm about to install some VC Games myself, but I read something about VC games not displaying over Component Cable.
    Is this true? Anyone having problems with this issue?

    The component cable issue is in regards to PAL players, but I think there's a way around that by some button presses...not sure. But I haven't heard anything in regards to that an USA players.

    I get that far, and instead of the file being called Wiibrew Loader, its just "?????" and the icon is a question mark, trying to copy it over says "Copy failed"

    What did I do wrong?

    Cheers for the guide [​IMG]

    Great tutorial! I hadn't messed with the twilight hack or any of this before but was still able to get these instructions to work for me on my first try. Thanks again!

    Fixed it, I had been putting RZDE instead of RZDP. Silly me.

    Hey, thanks for the wonderful guide! It worked perfectly for me! I thought that I would post some helpful information. Just in case you are wondering, 8.01 blocks in the Wii's memory equals about 1MB, this can be helpful when deciding how many to install!

    Oh yeah, on mine, it simply freezes after the countdown is over and then I turn it off and then back on (Just wanted to put in this scenario in case it happens to someone else!).

    Also, here is some block information FYI:
    Kirby 64 The Crystal Shards = 153 Blocks
    Mario Kart 64 = 123 Blocks
    LoZ: Ocarina of Time = 286 Blocks
    Pokemon Snap! = 159 Blocks

    @cosmo

    We have a whole wiki page of block information going, and all of the N64 games are covered. FYI.

    Noobie here [​IMG] on a un-modded Wii
    Do I need to have an original retail copy of Zelda Twilight Princess or will a "backup copy" do?

    Since your Wii is unmodded, you need an original copy.

    Did you use the correct region for the twilight hack?

    Try walking towards the camera when you load the twilight hack

    One thing to check on is the serial. If you look very closely at the inner circle of the game, there's a long serial in it. Read that and make sure it matches the save file you're using. Given there's a 0 save and a 2 save, it's funny that there isn't a 1 save for TP for the US version. I wonder if a version 1.1 exists?
