    hello, im having trouble with getting this damn SDHC card format. i want to get files larger than 4gigs on it but with the fat32 format it does not allow me to. i am currently with fat32 format because my laptop does not allow me to change to anything else. in my searches on line i came across a new format exFAT but it seems that my wii will not read it. anyway i have tryed other things like getting my pc to format it to NTFS. but the problem is the info i found online tells me to go to Device Manager and change the Policies tab so it reads Optimize for performance. but the problem is that when i click this setting it changes back its self back to optimize for quick removal. using the default also does not work. i have also downloaded the hp flash format tool but it does not seem to read the SDHC card. anyway im close to giving up and returning this card. anyway in conclusion i need help as to format this card to where i can fit 4gig+ files and also have it readable by the wii. thanks ahead of time.

    What files do you want on it that are bigger than 4GB?

    FAT32 is limited to 4gb files, Most Wii applications won't let you use NTFS. Split your games/videos whatever the files are into 4gb chunks.

    you need to convert them to wbfs files, if the game is bigger than 4gb then they will be split into multiple files.

    so if i break them into wbfs files then would programs like usbloader and such still be able to read them?

    Yes, usb loader gx supports wbfs files. For the loaders that support FAT32, it's the only way you can load games.
