    Hello,

    I just bought this 128 GB SD card http://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B00PCCAMKO?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00.

    It was formatted exFat so I formatted it to fat via OS X.

    I transferred the games normal to it under sd: Wiiu /games/ the same way as I put them on my old 32 GB card.

    But Loadiine 4.0 says: No games found and hangs up.

    Does anyone know what to do? From the 32 GB card the games work fine.

    Do I have to activate something to get the big SD Card to work?

    Thanks for your help!

    It has to be formatted in fat32. A free app to do that on a large card is on the net.

    Go into Disk Utility, select the SD Card(Main Volume). Under the Partition tab, click on options and select Master Boot Record, and make sure the format is MS-DOS(fat).

    Also try to set your SD card partition to both 'Primary' and 'Active'. Sometimes this helps.

    I'm using a 128GB SD card formatted to FAT32 with no problem. I had similar problems with the native Windows disk management system only allowing me exFat and when I tried to "force" Fat32 in cprompt, that couldn't even work.

    I used PartitionGuru, a free program I've been using a long time for hard drive related needs, and it fixed my problem and did it in no time at all. Hope this helps.
