    if the wiiu sd card reader broke you might be SOL unless you or nintend or any other places can fix it (also just out of curiosity I wonder if you can use an external usb sd card reader?)

    "i tried the sd card in my Wii U and it still works there so its not the SD card that broke..."

    It was just a (unfunny) joke anyways. Wasn't actually trying to be a dick.

    FTP from your laptop to the WiiU with FTPii. Transfer speeds are terrible, But it'll work just fine.

    Edit: You'll obviously need to have FTPii already on your SD card inside your WiiU, Or have the AppStore to download FTPii.
