    I just loaded Homebrew Channel 1.0.3 along with BootMii beta2, and both work great with my SDHC card. I even have used the emulators for NES, and SNES and they work great with SDHC. But when I try and launch Homebrew Browser I get a message saying:
    Unable to initialise FAT subsystem, exiting.
    Your SD Card may not be placed in the Wii Correctly.

    Is anyone else having problems with HBB?

    I forgot to put that I have a 4.0U Wii, with the custom Ios36 v9, since v10 doesn't work right with the USB Lan adapter yet, (Here's hoping for v12 to fix that)

    Also it works fine with my 2 gig SD card (Not a SDHC card) so that is why I believe it is a Homebrew Browser issue and not my Wii's issue.

    I'm having the same problem! I had it working on thursday night but then friday when I tried to load homebrew browser again I got the same message you have. Does anyone have an idea of how to fix this?

    I checked my sd card plenty of times, its not locked, I have it installed in the wii correctly.

    Ok I fixed the problem, all I did was reformat the sd card, downloaded the new homebrew browser 3.1 from codemii.com and put it in the apps folder. Worked like a charm. If you have items you want to keep on your sd card make sure you save them somewhere before you format the card.

    thanks for the reply, but I have tried to reformat the SD Card, and still no go. I almost wonder if it is a IOS issue. I saw a bug with HBC that it uses the higher IOS which may cause issues with SDHC.

    I reported it to the dev of the browser. My problem with the browser is wrong "path" it's on the last page of my HBC & yet should be on like the first or 2nd.

    Thanks for reporting it to the dev, just curious how did you do that? I saw there website, but didn't see how to contact them or a forum to post on.

    For you issue, that may be how you have the folder named inside the apps folder.

    I also have this same issue, however, it's really the SDHC card from my understanding. There is a compatibility list out there available at http://wiibrew.org/wiki/SD/SDHC_Card_Compatibility_Tests

    My Patriot 8GB SDHC is hit or miss, sometimes it works other times it doesn't. It'll also sometimes get passed the error msg in Homebrew Browser right after a reformat but usually can't make it all the way in to the app. I just ordered some of the SDHCs that appear on that list and will post here to let people know if it's the card or the install of HBC/HBB.

    Not to rant, but all of the issues people are having are from SDHC cards...

    A 2gb SD card is
