    Hello there, just installed Homebrew Channel on my Wii U. And whenever I try to load up my SD nothing pops up. I know the channel is fine since my buddy left his Wii that has it and the SD card works fine. So i thought I would copy everything just like on his SD and nothing pops up. Now I think it is my card but you guys are more intellegent than me at this so I wanted ti get another opinion. I am using a 64gb micro SD card with adapter. Set to exFat 32kb. My friends is a16gb regular set to 32Fat (forget the actual name) 32kb. Hope it is just the SD card so I can buy another.
    Thanks a ton!

    Thats goot to knoe thanks a ton :) 2 other questions. 1. Do I need to get some programfor the Gamecube adapter? And 2. Do I need any soecial files for running Homebrew channel aside from Nintendont on the Sd card I want to use? I borrowed my parents 1 gb sd card since they are hard to find. Amd gave it back to them. Nothing was on it except a log after installing homebrew launcher

    well if you have homebrew channel installed you dont need to own an sd card anymore technicaly unless you ant to

    you can run everything from an usb device apps and all, if an sd card isnt inserted homebrew channels looks inside the usb device for apps and such, but again only fat32 supported.

    Also after installed you can use any size sd card or usb device as long as they are fat32 formated, if you use the latest nintendont version 4.425 the wiiu gc adapter is automaticaly detected and works right off no need to do anything else other than having the controllers plugged.

    yeah windows only allows up to 32gb to be fat32 formated, but you can download independant formaters and use them to farmat whatever size you want to fat32 i secnt you a link in PM.
