    I checked a few threads with this problem, but I have been unable to get it to work. I upgraded a friends Wii that was to 4.0 updated before using Nintendo's update servers. I was able to use IOS36 patcher and WiiSCU to update a few of the IOSs. Preloader 0.29 installed fine, but the hacks.ini is not working on the root of the SD.

    I tried using a regular SD and an SDHC card, I tried renaming the hacks.ini file to hacks and I tried a few different hacks.ini files I found around here, but I still get the error message that "blah blah hacks.ini not found on FAT or NAND".

    Any suggestions?

    Make sure that there is not 2 blank spaces at the end of your hacks.ini... this can apparently cause some problems.
    Try opening it up and deleting one of the empty lines if you see two. Good Luck

    I tried with one space and no spaces at the end, still no go. [​IMG]

    I also tried installing Preloader again, but with no luck.

    Tried with FAT and FAT32, still no go. I haven't found a definitive answer if an SDHC card is the problem, but it works with SDHC on my system, just don't know why it wouldn't work with this one.

    EDIT: IT'S FIXED! [​IMG] I formatted my 2GB SD to use FAT instead of FAT32 and it worked. [​IMG] Looks like SDHC and/or FAT32 was the problem. Thanks everyone.
