    Hi,

    I have got a PNY 64GB Micro SD card that I want to use to install NUS games on my USB drive connected to the Wii-U.

    What is the beste way to format the SD card?
    - FAT32 / NTFS / ExtFat?
    - Allocation unit size?
    - Maybe with a special SD format tool?

    Thanks

    I have tried these:
    SDFormatter V2.0 : no 64kb option available
    EaseUS Partition Master 11.9 : error
    guiformat : no 64kb option available

    Cluster size doesn't matter but is recommended. Just format to fat32 transfer game and install with wup installer

    I'm using Windows formater on default size at normal format speed (not quick) on FAT32, works like a charm!

    What would be "small", less than 256?

    FAT32, 32kB cluster for faster loading w/ Loadiine

    And use whatever formatter you want, Windows one worked great for me since Wii Hacks
