    i have a sd card reader and a 2GB sd card, and i want to use them for the usb iso loader
    i've formatted it to ntfs, there are not partitions on it, i will fully use it for the usb iso loader

    i have everything for my wii installed, i just need to know how i can add iso's to the sd card and make it work

    doesn't it work the same as with a usb HDD?
    format it with the loader the run the loader, insert a game dsic, press + and it should place the game on the card
    but I dont know if card are compatible

    You'd have to use an SD->USB adapter. And you'd only be able to fit one or two games at the most on there, and only games with small filesizes like Zelda TP, Wii Sports, and the like.

    You're better off getting a USB flash drive or HDD.

    Yeah, it should be possible to format it with your wii
    and you don't need to insert a disc, thats only when you want to rip it to the HDD (or in your case the SD)
    you can put games on it with your pc too [​IMG]
