    ok so i've been reading Cyan's emunand tutorial and since english isn't my main language i have some trouble understanding some things that i wan't to get clear
    first of all, if i'm correct, a USB is necessary to have emunand running in wiiflow?? the thing is that i have a 64GB sandiks ultra flash card and is not compatible on "writing" meaning if my wii tries to write something in it like an update to a INI file or anything related, it will freeze and sometimes corrupt some files in my USB

    iv'e been messing with modmii's interface on neek(2o) creation and i've had 2 folders, copy to usb and copy to usb, which indicates i do need a USB, but moving around i found the option to only make a COPY_TO_SD folder which i thought i had created a only SD emunand, but when ever i try launching an emunand game it just goes to black screen, i have the neek wad that modmii gave, and when disabling the run through sneek app, it shows the "This game needs classic controller" but it will just be stucked there, i tried the custom option on or off in wiiflow, and also the on off option on launch through sneek option and no success, i have also coppied my shared2 folder and the cert.sys in the sys folder

    What's your SD Card's "SD Class"? It might be a problem with the reading speed. And most probably it's an SD card failure, have you tested it already against errors?

    An external hard drive is better suited for such configuration as their reading speed is higher and more stable than that on a Flash Memory (micro/SD Card and/or USB Flash Drive), even on a USB 2 interface (which is the one the Wii uses/has).

    The only use I would understand recently is testing WAD files (VC ones) on your emu-NAND, or getting (useless imho) "unlimited" installed launchers on the Wii Menu, or installing Wii themes to test them without the risk of bricking your real Wii.

    But don't forget about having many diferent emu-NAND's to play diferent games at diferent times without having to install/uninstall them each time, that's a very good option.

    I wouldn't recommend using a flash memory when constant IO operations are required.

    so you have your emunand and real nand channels working?

    is your emunand on SD or USB?
    do you use neek2o at all?
    and how did you get your real nand channels working?

    my emunand is on SD, i only set sneek2o to launch castlevania since it said it required it in many tutorials and it launched, and about the real nand channels working i dont know, it didn't showed before i opened up my wiiflow ini and replaced some numbers it showed there from another ini i had, they had the same numbers, and when i launched up my wiiflow and wen't to emunand channels it showed my games and launched them and they worked, but i saw some of them were missing so i wen't to options in wiiflow and it had the show realnand games and witched it to emunand only and they were also working and saw the custom titls i installed on my emunand only, if anything helps i can upload my wiiflow.ini and sourcemenu.ini or even my emunand folder

    ok. so your emunand is on SD and you got it to launch castlevania using neek2o, i wasn't sure if neek2o worked for emunand on SD. do you have any neek2o files on USB HDD?

    glad you got real nand working too.

    everything other than WBFS is in my SD, on my usb i only have wbfs. since my usb drive is not very well compatible with the wii, if my will tries to write something in it, or saving a file in it, it will just freeze and corrupt my USB, i just downloaded abz's premade emunand, installed wii wads using showmii wad and voala, and yes thank you, real nand chanels working on the latest BETA of wiiflow
