    Hi everyone,

    just as title says, can i use MicroSD Cards with SD Adapter instead of a normal big SD Card für WiiU hacking stuff ?
    All cards i find are MicroSDXC. There is a 128 GB MicroSDXC on sale next week in a local store.
    Is the size OK ?

    And what is the better method ? Loadiine or Install Games to USB HDD ?
    I may want to use DLC.

    Thanks for your help
    Cheers

    yes, providing your adapter isn't so cheap it falls apart.

    You can use either USB install or Loadiine GX2 Mod y1, which has pirated DLC support.

    I don't know. Ohio I think?
    I have a 128gb micro sd card inside of an adapter and it hasn't given me any issues at all. It was the only kind of sd card i could find at the time of that size.

    Sandisk Ultra 128GB Micro SDHC works fine. No Problem. The writespeed is very slow (round about 20MB/S), Samsung Evo+ (there must be the +) had better wirtespeed and is good as the Sandisc

    I use a 128GB MicroSD and it works fine. MicroSD and regaular SD are actually spec-for-spec identical in terms of performance.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    it should be fine, there is no actuall difference..
    i bet if you take todays SD cards appart, some brands just put the micro sd components in a SD casing..
    i can see that it's cheaper to produce just 1 type of components instead of 2 or more...

    i started to make a collection... i own about 8 of them
    i am surprised companies still shipping them, they could just sell the micro sd card and sell the adapter separatly at 3-5 bucks or something for extra profit
    i had seen this kind of thinking happen with other products "hey, we made it different but you can buy a separate adapter to use on your previous devices"
    (apple really loves this idea lately)

    Yes, MicroSD and SD cards are identical just different size. And on paper it is easier to make bigger capacity SD cards than microSD cards but as long as your adapter's allright microSD's are fine. I used microSD's in everything personally, original 3DS, both Wii U's, my Wii, and so on.

    But yeah I have a lot of bad adapters that came from china and stuff, and they will not just connect the microSD card at all, and given how much I am using microSD cards in SD devices I am running out of adapters heh.

    I hope you are joking. Only good thing that Samsung made was exploding phones.

    The micro SD Card I bought came with its own adapter. It's a 128gb card. The card its self is built fine. it's pretty solid how ever the adapter is this massively produced piece of shit i see in literally every micro sd card I see on the racks of any store you go to. I bought 2 micro sd cards before from two different companies and got the same god damn adapter in both. I swear there is probably one company that makes all these things in bulk and just sells em to all the sd card manufacturers. They are cheaply made and they fall apart on me all the time.

    Be sure to re-download the title if you installed it a long time ago. The newer version of the game works with haxchi.
