    Hi Everyone,

    When trying to launch Loadiine GX2 I get error "SD Mount Failed". Can someone explain why this error happens? I have not been able to launch Loadiine GX2 so looking to get it up and running for the first time. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Let me know if you need more info.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the reply. What do you mean by making the partition primary? Do you not just format the card to exfat?. iv got a 64GB card so it should be formatted to exfat right?

    Then there is your mistake.

    The Wii U doesn't read exfat. You need Fat32.

    use this: http://www.ridgecrop.demon.co.uk/index.htm?guiformat.htm
    Click on the image to download.
    It can format your sd card to FAT32.

    Just make absolutely certain you are actually chosing your SD-Card before you format or you might format another drive.

    Have fun.

    I have read that any card above 32GB must be formatted in exfat. Card sizes below 32GB should be formatted in Fat32. So SD mount failed error is not because of this. Can someone else explain why the SD mount failed error would appear please?

    Forget whatever u have read, doesn't apply to wii u, keep it on exfat and u'll never make it work. The wii u only mounts fat32 like kingpin told u, regardless of sd card size.

    Meh

    Thanks all. The card did was formatted to fat32 and worked. Weird how Win10 only has an exfat and NTFS option and not fat32. Had to use a fat32 formatting tool instead to make this work as mentioned by the peeps above.
