    So, I recently discovered that I can use my actual Wii NAND on Dolphin, to play Rock Band 3 with better frame rate/textures, without having to purchase anything new.
    I actually got the game working, dumped my NAND, got the game running smoothly.
    The issue is I have A LOT of purchased songs in my SD card, but I just can't get it working on Dolphin. There are a few in the actual system's memory and these are working just fine, but I just can't make the ones saved in the SD card work.

    I've created a virtual SD card for Dolphin, cloned my actual card to it but the game just won't load it. It just says "An error occurred" and then disables SD Card mode.

    Is there a way to convert all these .bin files (that I have in my SD) to .app files (similar to the ones already in my NAND)?
    I've been trying it over and over for a couple weeks, but still no success.

    Unfortunately, I can't even redownload the songs to my system, as the RB3 store was shut down...
    Please, any help is welcome.


    Thanks.

    Does the virtual SD card not exceed 2 GB, that is a known issue with virtual SDs, Also are you using the proper tool to write to the .raw file "ImDisk,"

    Copy/paste:

    Windows
    The Windows users must use a third party software that can mount the virtual SD card. Speaking of which... ImDisk Virtual Disk Driver

    WinImage is unreliable, because oddly enough, it will cause desync and few other unforeseeable problems. ImDisk will be fine.

    Quick guide for mounting and editing the virtual SD card with the ImDisk Virtual Disk Driver:

    1. Right-click on sd.raw file then click "Mount as ImDisk Virtual Disk" from the context menu.
    2. Check box Removable media then hit "OK". The predefined drive letter and everything else will do just fine.
      • The virtual SD card will now appear as "Removable Disk" in which the native Explorer window can read and write in there.
    3. When done editing the virtual SD card, simply unmount it by right-click on the "Removable Disk" then click "Unmount ImDisk Virtual Disk" from the context menu.
      • The virtual SD card must be dismounted before using with Dolphin.

    Yes, I did exactly as the wiki says, step by step... Still no luck.
    That's the main reason why I wanted to know if I can unpack the .bin files, to get rid of this whole sd card shenanigans, as I have 2,7gb worth of dlc music.

    Sorry that's all the insight I have regarding writing virtual SDs, try to hunt down communities dedicated to Rock Band hacking (that's what I would does.) Good luck

    I'll look into it... It's infuriating how I have everything as it should be but it still does not work.

    Thanks anyway.
