    I use a 64gb sd card in my 8gb Wii U for launching homebrew. I want to install redNAND but 1.My little brothers on the Wii U and 2.I have a 64gb

    So does 64gb work in a Wiii U when you want to use redNAND

    considering the 32GB Black Wii U's require 64GB minimum for RedNAND, it will work as long as the SD card is decent.

    having the 8GB model does not matter, there is no fixed size limit for either

    8GB Wii U needs a 16GB card I believe....I have a 32GB card in my 8GB system and it partitions itself during install.....so a 32GB card will give you about 22GB free space (32GB is really only like 29GB after formatting)....you'll want some wiggle room on your SD card for homebrew and if you plan to use USB games. Some games have surprised me on size.....As of right now, my 32GB card has been fine because I don't really care for the bigger games like Call of Duty BlackOps 2 or Call of Duty Ghosts since I already have those on PS3....but a 32GB card will work I think I recall seeing people using 128GB cards too.

    Please don't reply if you don't know what you are talking about.

    You do not NEED a 16GB card, that's just the minimum size for making redNAND on an 8GB WiiU. OP can use a 64GB card perfectly fine.

    Black Wii U consoles are typically 32GB.

    I used a 128 Gb sd card. I got rednand on it but had a 95 gb partition that wasn't fat32 left. When I went to format that partition, it formatted my entire sd card. How do I only format the portion of the sd card not used by the rednand for use.
