    This is kinda a DS question but really its a Wii question as it pretty much revolves around the Wii so plz bear with me and confirm that I can do this.

    Today i bought a Lexar Mirco SDHC 4GB card and i realized that it won't work on my SD card reader and I can't return it as I already opened it and i would rather not buy a SDHC reader as it's my last resort. So The Homebrew Channel can support SDHC right? and so does FTPii so theoretically can i put the card in Wii and put transfer my DSTT files thru FTPii? I would try this now but Dad's on the "main" computer and i need to go to bed soon so can someone plz help my confirm that this works?

    ok i'm pretty sure that is will work but i can't get FTPii to work so i need help, i'm tried afif95's guide but its all good till i try to connect to the Wii, i tried it on Windows Explorer but then it asks for a password but i never put in a pass! so i just press enter but then it says its wrong! ( i also tried it with FireFTP but same result, wrong pass ) the file is name ftpii_0.0.15 if that matters ( i know that there is a higher version but bear in mind that i need to transfer my DS homebrew files ) plz help as i don't want to buy another SD card Reader.

    I never had a problem asking for files... but then again I used firefox which I couldn't figure out how to upload to ftpii with so I doubt that'll help you.

    K now that i have time on my hands ( i took a shower i'm pretty sure that all you needed to know that )
    I'll tell you what i did step-by-step

    1. I used sendelf to send FTPii over to the Wii ( IP address was: 192.168.0.102 )
    2. After I did that i went to internet explorer and typed in ftp://192.168.0.102:21 and asked for me to log in and that where i had trouble as according to afif95's guide leave the username blank and put in my pass which now i tried "12345" ( the folder is now named ftpii_12345, so the pass should be 12345 but i don't get how that works since i'm sending the boot.dol to the wii now the folder... ) and then i type in 12345 as my pass and then it said that it was wrong any sugesstions?

    Afif95's guide is http://www.gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=121408 i couldn't use the "insert link" button i dunno why.

    Dude, this place is not a BLOG.

    Anyway your problem is.

    1)the folder's name is "ftpii_0.0.15", anything after the underscore will be the PASSWORD. So delete the underscore. Common sense, use it please.

    2)SD folder is the root, durr. I thought I noted that in my guide

    3)ftp://192.168.0.102/
