    System Menu - 4.3U
    SD Card - SanDisk microSD, 64gb (already used with 3DS homebrew)
    I put my MAC in, downloaded/extracted the zip. Copied the files to the microSD. When I go in the menu, nothing shows up. No matter how far I scroll. I've deleted the private folder and replaced it again, checked mt MAC, but nothing. I have Brawl and Twilight Princess, help?

    try using a 32gb or lower SD card. anything higher is SDXC and I don't know if the Wii can use that.

    Do you format it in FAT32? Some SDHC card don't work with Letterbomb, it's recommended a normal SD card (not SDHC!)

    The Wii doesn't support SDXC cards, you'll need either a SDHC card or SD (Normal)

    This is a really, extremely old thread. Either way, I successfully got it with a SDHC the same day I posted OP. This thread exists in two places, so I know there wasn't anything that said the problem was solved, but still.

    SDXC cards work fine on it, you just have to format them to FAT32.

    Nah, it's not in the manual. It's just like on the 3DS side of things. The hardware is compatible it's just that part of the SDXC standard is it uses exFAT on the partitioning side of things. The Wii and 3DS aren't compatible with exFAT, so Nintendo just says their hardware is SD and SDHC compatible. You'd be surprised at how many devices are compatible with SDXC but say they aren't. It's just they don't support exFAT.
