    I went to buy an SD Card for softmodding my wii 4.3. I went to the store and I accidently got an SDHC card. I was going to follow this guide
    http://gbatemp.net/t171901-modify-any-wii-4-3-below
    In the requirements it says
    "preferably non-sdhc"
    I have a 4GB SDHC card. Why is it preferably not SDHC card. Should I still use it?

    Both homebrew and the wii itself used to be limited to non-HC cards. As such, some older games (notably Brawl) and homebrew may still lack / have shaky support for HC cards.

    I can't say whether or not it'll hinder initial setup but I know for sure that things like Brawl hacks which rely on SD loading (via the game's older standards) wouldn't work.

    You won't be able to start hacking w/ an SDHC card, as Brawl specifically disables the use of them. Once you install the Homebrew Channel you'll be able to use it though, so if you can just borrow a non-HC SD card to use initially you'll be fine.

    So I can use a SDHC for SSBB but I must use a SD Card for the softmod right?
    What size do I get the SD card?

    Also, a 4GB SDHC card wouldn't be enough for even 1 game right?
