    I have a SDHC Transcend 16 GB class 10 but the Wii U does not recognize it.
    It's visible under Windows10/Linux and it is also formatted as FAT32.
    Tried many times but no success to make it work under Wii U.

    Any ideas ?

    Tried that also ... formatted it using all the combinations possible ... still no sd card in Wii U.
    Have a usb stick that works in Wii U but ... loadiine supports only sd cards.
    Well I guess no backup games for me.

    Have you tried doing all we told ya but on a different pc???

    Maybe just maybe the sd is fine but your PC is not doing things well.

    Have sd card reader only on one (the laptop), don't have card reader for the desktop computer.
    I doubt that would make any difference.
    Have another laptop without hdd but there is no software for linux so I can use live usb stick....

    When you format.. you can chose "primary or logical" .. By me was it from begining on logical.. After formating primary the wii u can read
    My Sd Card Setup:
    Name : U
    Type : Primary
    File Sys : Fat32
    Cluster : 32kb
