    if the homebrew loads it will have a black screen and say something like fsgetmounterror

    Maybe try blowing into the card slot. It helps if you start vwii then look at the sd card indicator, when you confirm that works, try loading homebrew again. Also don't use a micro sd card with card reader.

    You can use a microsd but it kinda more problematic than standard ones, mostly for connector issues. Again, load the vwii system menu and check the sd card menu on vwii until it detects your sd card, then restart the system and try loading homebrew again.
