Any vWii users having decent luck with SDXC cards (64GB and 128GB)? I remember reading about people having luck with XD cards on classic Wii. One more thing. Has anyone found any XD cards for a decent price. It looks like 64GB cards are within the 25 - 35 USD range and 128GB cards are between 50 and 75. I want to use this card for Nintendont and before someone blurts out the fact of USB loading, circumstances force me to use SD cards.

If you still want to know, I am using a 128GB card for usbloadergx and nintendon't. I originally had it in the sd card slot but usbloader gx does not load wii games from sd so I was using wiiflow and everything worked fine. Eventually I grew tired of wiiflow and moved back to usbloader gx using the sd card with a usb adapter.

I bought this card for about $40 and have had no problems with it. As a bonus it came with the usb adapter that I am using.

Also when using the adapter you can ustealth the card so you don't get the format drive message from the wiiu.

As far as I know you can use any size card you want in vwii but to do the original hack i.e. smashstack you need a 2gb or smaller card.

Edit - I only use this card for wii games now. I moved all of my gamecube games to another sd card that stays in the sd slot. Nintendon't has issues with having two usb devices connected. My wiiu hdd and my sd card adapter used for usbloadergx and wii games.

So I have 3 storage devices connected to my wiiu.

AWESOME! Did you ever try using your 128 GB card with WiiWare games? Just curious.

    Was it ever operational?
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Costing a ton of jobs, environmental disaster, loss of a ton of money
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    They still ship the oil, just in trucks instead of a pipe
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Okay so the pipeline (extension) was never operational, never worked, and shipping that oil was never cheaper because of it.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    They do this stock investment thing Veho called futures trading
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    It's complex but yeah in spite of it not being operational (yet) they had planned on it being so
  • Veho @ Veho:
    They do this thing called "counting their chickens before they hatch".
  • Veho @ Veho:
    It's the same as when publishers claim piracy is costing them billions in "projected" earnings.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Well knowing where you are going is usually a good thing
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Looking before jumping is also a good thing.
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    If you follow the money the truth is usually there
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    A strong hunch of mine is that a cheap oil pipe from Alaska would have hurt the middle East and lowered prices. If I was a big investor in oil, I would probably not want that at all.
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Yeah and the truth is oil companies reported record profits yet there's no room to reduce oil prices at the pump because, um, economy.

    Well Biden said he was going after the big oil companies 🥰

    Looks like he failed.

    His record seems to imply otherwise, but politicians say the opposite of what they really mean
  • Veho @ Veho:
    Like most politicians, he
    has so many corporate hands up his ass it's a wonder he could move at all.

    I'm sorry, that's not bribery, that's "lobbying".

    Or when a foreign country does it, it's "investing" in your "equity firm".
