    EDIT: LU64 Wii, 4.0U, Preloader 0.29, cIOS rev 9, and still have Trucha-bug capabilities.

    I have a Kingston 4GB SDHC Class 4 (SD-K04G 0905 WF0732B) SD card which works fine in the Wii menu, but when I open the Homebrew Channel,
    it doesn't get recognized, and going back to the Wii menu after opening up HBC makes the Wii menu not recognize it either - unless I take it out and put it back in.

    Which leads me to believe this is an error from within the HBC rather than a formatting error. Booo, any fixes?

    Is there a certain formatting I need to get it working in HBC as well?
    I know the data I have on the card is correct, since I copied the full directory from my WORKING 64MB SD card, so that's not the issue.. currently it's formatted FAT32 @ 4096 bytes.

    I've looked at the compatability charts here: http://wiibrew.org/wiki/SD/SDHC_Card_Compatibility_Tests
    They state the "Micro SDHC class4 (with SD Adapter) [FAT16/32]" card as not working, mine's not a Micro, nor does it have an adapter.

    If your Wii Menu can read the card, then you're on 4.0, I assume.
    Why'd you update to 4.0?

    Yurp, I have 4.0U. I had an LU64 3.4U, downgraded to 3.2U and upgraded to 4.0 via Waninkoko's program, so I have all the goodies & preloader.

    I never thought I'd see the day where I had to bump one of my own threads. Fail.
    EDIT: No, going to 'reload' on the HBC doesn't fix anything for me, blahhh, idunno what to do!

    Why would you bump it if its only been 3 hours? Most of the time it takes people about 12 hours to respond with something helpful.

    That looks like 15 hours to me.
    I don't know what's wrong though.

    Thought I was the only one with this problem. I have the exact same card and issues. Are we missing something?

    ***Just copied HBC to SD (4gb) and launched from there thinking if the SD was being read it might work but it didn't. You are correct about having to reinsert the SD after running HBC so it gets recognized again. Hope someone can help!!***

    I'm going to guess this has to be an issue with libfat or the libsd libraries, I took a gander at the sources, but I don't have a clue what to look for!

    I have a mirco SDHC Class 4 card from Kingston made in Taiwan and it works in HBC and in WAD Manager. I think it's even formatted in the same format as yours, but in general i would suggest to format with this tool:

    i was having this problem for the first time last night!!!

    though what was even stranger is that it did work a few times, and it has worked in the past.... it all stopped working when i put coverflow 7 on there... now im not sure if this is a coincidence or not, but last night it was being very temperamental... not loading at all some times, loading with only half the stuff other times, something very strange was definitely going on!

    How did you downgrade?
    I thought downgrading a LU64 Wii would cause a brick?

    I had the same problem with my 8 gb kingston SDHC card but all I did was use me old 2gb wii sd card I already had to load homebrew and I install the wads from that card and then I go to the wii settings and channels and insert the 8 gb card and move are the vc and wiiware stuff there. The Wii itself reads the card just fine. The only thing is I have to switch between cards depending if I want to play a game ore if I want to run Homebrew. But this is only a small price to pay all things considered.
