    it works fine on computer?
    You said it doesn't mount in loadiine GX2, but does it work with Homebrew launcher or with ftpiiU?

    You could try to reformat it with Panasonic SD formater (it will make it exfat as there's no option in that program to choose the format, it's said to format it correctly, not sure if proven).
    Then try formatting it back to FAT32. You could try 32k/cluster too.

    Yes thank you that worked. i formatted the sd card with that program first then re formatted it with fat32 and it was detected. Weird that windows formatted with exfat didnt work, but this program worked.

    Thanks

    Ah, I didn't put a lot of faith in fixing it by formating with that program, I'm glad it worked.
    I guess that program is really doing something that the OS isn't.

    This seems to be a growing issue with larger (128GB+) SD cards. I just got a new Samsung UHS-I 512GB SD card, yesterday, and I tried formatting it as FAT32, with both 32k and 64k clusters, and I consistently received the "SD Mount Failed" error message. I used the same formatting tools I've used recently for my 64GB Sandisk, which worked very well in the past.

    At the moment, I've just re-partitioned and re-formatted my new card with a different tool (EaseUS Partition Master Free), and I'm in the process of transferring files to the card now. The transfer speeds on the computer are decent, so I'm hopeful that this time it will work properly on my Wii U.

    If your using an sd card 64GB - 512GB and you want it formatted Fat32 then use the gui format tool from this link guiformat.exe don't use windows or anything else, its always worked for me and its a lot easier/straight forward. Select max setting 65536 from the allocation drop down box and do a full format uncheck quick format option.

    Yea I used that program before as I already had installed on my computer lol, I believe I used it to get rid of emunand from gateway formatted SD cards. I was trying loads of other programs just glad that worked!


    Lol no I formatted it fat32 at first which after copying 80gb over it didn't work. By default it comes with exfat but I've used loadiine before and the many many tutorial state fat32 lol :)

    I tried easeus as well but it didn't work so I would suggest copying just the loadiine gx2 and testing before copying backup games over. I wasted so much time before

    I used RidgeCrop's GUI fat32format utility for my 64GB card, and it worked well. Using it for my new card, however, gave me the "SD Mount Failed" error message.

    Try that one instead, its never failed me to date and that goes for 3x64GB's and a 256GB sd card. Have a go you never know? :) I know they look the same gui but not sure if they are though?

    Edit: they are the same, sorry I got my link from somewhere else I didn't realise.

    Good Tip! If what I'm doing doesn't work, I'll be sure to try it this way, next time. Thanks.

    Just buy and copy lots of files on a 128Gb Sandisk with 64k clusters... Sd failed... I´ll give a try on this tool, you recmmend 32k or 64k? Thanks!

    Edit: It works now, but only formatting by Panasonic´s tool and then using guiformat. And, in advantage I dopn´t know how but formated some of my HDD ;(

    Thank you guys.

    My new SD card is from SanDisk. It says UHS-II with 260MB/s on its cover.
    I tried formatting it as FAT32 with no luck, just to see Loadiine GX2 say SD mount failed.
    (However everything under vWii is working fine)

    Finally the issue was solved by using Panasonic SD formatter (with GUI) first and then the fat32format.exe (a command-line tool).
    I also specified the cluster size to 64K with -c128 in command line in the second step with no problem.

    Now I am using Loadiine GX2 with the super fast new SD card. Games are loading much faster now.
    Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water was loading several minutes before each chapter before. But now it is just several seconds.

    Thanks again. Hope all of you could enjoy your WiiU with a super fast UHS-II card.

    I'm getting this message on a 128GB SD Card formatted to FAT32 64k cluster. Works fine if I format to FAT32 32K cluster. I tried all the suggestions on in this post.
