    Hello guys! Just testing if my SD card works with wii u or not I mean I'm not sure why it wouldnt but at the moment it's not working. I try to save Mii image to the sd card and it says sd card cannot be used.
    It is formatted in fat32 and I copied over some backups. Could someone help me please?
    This is the sd card [​IMG]
    Thanks!

    If miimaker had no SD card access you couldn't use it for loadiine.
    So there must be something that you can save on SD.

    I'll just be a really dirty person and self advertise here:
    The wii u supports pretty much any sd card (at least uhs 1, others not at full speed) which is formatted to fat32. (windows just doesn't let you format your card to fat32 if it's over 32gb but also supports it fully). Your vWii on the other hand will most likely run into difficulties using any sd card which is bigger than 2gb.

    Now what I would advice you to try out: try to format your card with U_Tility and then copy your backups using the same tool, everything should work fine then.

    Mind if I ask which version your wii u is on? And did you follow the definite guide made by @fiveighteen to install loadiine?

    I know it seems stupid, but make sure the physical lock switch on the card isn't engaged...

    You'd need a 2GB SDHC card to install Smash Stack, but once you've done that, you can use any size SD card for homebrew itself.
    I use a 4GB microSD card with an SD adapter and it works perfectly :).

    Wasn't it that even a sdhc card doesn't work and it needs to be a plain sd card? (not sure myself anymore)
