    I'm using my 64GB SD card that I use for my RedNAND and I put the apps in the wii/apps folder, but for some reason the HomeBrew Channel isn't seeing the apps. What am I doing wrong?

    Wii/vWii doesn't support SDHC or higher off the box. Choose a smaller non-SDHC/XC card for your vWii.

    My Wii AND vWii read my SDHC and SDXC cards just fine...?

    Only real problem I've ran into is using SDHC and SDXC for the initial install of HBC (and for vWii, that isn't even a problem with wuphax).

    My 16 GB SDHC card works fine in vWii, not sure where you got that info.

    I said off the box, the Wii doesn't recognize SDHC/XC, meaning you need a non-SDHC/XC to install homebrew channel. After that it works.

    wii apps arent on SD/Wii/apps

    just make a folder on the root of the sd called apps and put them there.

    Yes, the apps should be in:
    SD:/apps
    And unlike the Wii U HBL the .ELF/.DOL files inside the applications folders always have to be named boot.elf/boot.dol (example: SD:/apps/wadmanager/boot.elf) otherwise it can't see it.
