    I kept all my homebrew stuff on my 8BG SDHC card and all my Wii VC titles on a 1GB SD card, both different brands. Yesterday my 3-year-old did something to it, he was watching Netflix and I came in and saw the SD card on the table next to the Wii. Well now the Wii won't boot with either card in the slot, and if I boot it then insert the card both of them say the card isn't useable. I put them in another Wii and both cards work fine in the other Wii. So I assume he messed up my card reader, but looking in it with a flashlight it looks perfect, no pins are bent or anything. Help? :(

    He could have pulled the cardreader off it's pads somehow, not likely though.
    The only way to tell for certain is to open it up and inspect each solder point.
