    Hey all, Ive got an odd problem. When I go into the data management > Save data and then the SD card my wii immediately hangs. Any idea what would cause this? I can copy and move saves etc to the SD but am unable to get into the SD card screen [​IMG]

    Does it sound like my wii is missing something to stop me from getting to that menu? Ive also formatted another SD card and am still unable to get into that section of the menu! Is my wii partially fooked?

    Any help would be great! [​IMG]

    [​IMG] Insert your SD card on your computer, right click "private", click "rename", type "privatebannerbomb, click "privateold", right click "privateold", click "rename", type "private". Now insert your SD card on your Wii, click the Wii button using the Wii Remote (or Wiimote), Click "Data Management" and click "Save Data". That's the solution. I tried it and it worked! [​IMG]

    You might have to try with another SD card. Format FAT 16 I think.

    Also, when you say "SD tab", do you mean SD Channel (as in 4.0) or the SD data management in Wii Settings?
    If you have hacks like Bannerbomb and try accessing the SD Channel, it will freeze.

    This is really starting to get on my tits now. Ive just reinstalled the official system menu 4.0e and downgraded and hacked again using the ultimate 4.0 guide and its still crashing when I go into the SD save menu!! [​IMG]

    Fixed it.

    It took some drastic measures but it now works exactly as it should! If anyone else has a similar problem here is what I did:

    Loaded anytitle deleter and removed any ios with 3 digits ie: 249
    Formatted the wii
    Did a nintendo update
    Re-modded it again using the 4.0 menu guide.
    Now my wii is back as it should be with access to my save menu SD section! [​IMG]
