    Hey guys, I was wondering, if I upgrade to a SDHC mini, with any of the emulators on my HomeBrew Channel work? Or will I have to wait for them to become SDHC compatible? All of this is starting to become redundant.

    You'll need to wait for the program you want to use sdhc with to update their program to support it.

    So far, only FTPii has an official rebuild with SDHC support. But since the support seems to be in devkitPRO's libogc, according to FTPii's changelog, you can probably just recompile the source with the latest devkit to get it to work.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong but the latest HBC (Beta 9) now supports SDHC, or so it says in the changelog.
    Just thought I would point it out. =]

    Ill give this a shot tomorrow when I get up. Will give a test with snes9xgx 006, and a PNY 8gb class 4 card.

    So wait, the Wii can use SDHC via the front SD Slot now?
    Did I miss something?

    ... and also: The fact that HBC supports SDHC means you can run homebrew from your HC-card; BUT, those programs in themselves need to have implemented SDHC to in turn be able to read from HC-cards. In other words, you can launch snes9x from SDHC, but it can't yet load stuff (roms, saves et al.) from SDHC.

    Behind you! I know you looked!
    Interesting, though I'll stick to waiting for USB 2.0 (if it ever gets hacked in). Great we're opening up the Wii so much!
