    Hello everyone,

    Today I tried using my 64GB Transcend Premium 300x MicroSDXC card to use in Loadiine, but it gives me the error that it can not be mounted or that the card is not found. Is there any fix for this? Searching this on Google gave me the answer to format my card to FAT32, but after I did that, it still gives me the error.

    Anyone having this problem as well?
    Thanks in advance for your help. :)

    Pretty sure it's because it's over 32GB that cards that don't work.
    Either that or because it's XC.

    From what I've read anyways, unless those other people were misinformed themselves.

    Do you think it could work if I made a partition of 32GB and leave the rest as unallocated space?

    Perhaps, it's worth a shot.

    That is not true, as I am using a 64GB SD card with Loadiine and many people have tried SD cards up to 256 GB

    Can you tell me what kind of card you are using (SD, SDHC, SDXC, etc) and what you have it formatted as?

    Huh, odd.
    I thought that because of a ton of other people saying you couldn't. Guess they were wrong too...
    Haven't tested myself since I'm a 5.4.0 pleb waiting for v3. :P

    Sure, but I don't have SSB, and don't feel like buying it just for v1/v2 since I don't find the SSB series all that fun.

    I suggest.

    Use FAT32 and increase the cluster size to 32K or 64K. Also make sure the card is using MBR and not GPT.

    While this is for the 3DS I bought a PNY 128GB MicroSDXC card to use with it. When I used the default cluster size setting in the windows formatter. I was running to a problem where Nintendo Programs would not remember settings. Like if I set a Theme. It would still be the default theme. Reformatted the card with a higher cluster size and all my problems went away.

    So when I bought a PNY 256GB SDXC card to use with my Wii U in vWii mode I formatted it right away with a higher cluster size and had zero problems with it.

    The WiiU was tested with cards up to 200+ GB (I wouldn't recommend buying one of those) without any issues as long as they were formatted correctly to fat32. When setting up your card be sure to have the right folder structure for loadiine and check that you didn't accidentally engaged the writelock on your sd card adapter (the little pin on the side). The program @gamer4lif3 should work without issues, just be sure to run it as an administrator or you can't format your drive.

    Thanks guys! I'll make sure to use that tool today, and turn the cluster size up 64K and if that doesn't work 32K as well. I'll post my progress here. Thank you helpful community so far :D

    Very wrong... Even the official loadiine thread says they work.
    I have 128gb and no problem.

    Just use U utility it formatted for me properly because it didnt worked for me too.

    After formatting just set the partition as active and primary, if not the wiiu won't mount it.
