    Hello, I was trying to setup SNEEK on my SD Card. I loaded it, but I got a black screen. Then, I inserted it into my computer, and it said I needed to format it! It still works on my Wii, but it doesn't work on my DSi either. I had a lot of info on it, including pictures! How do I fix this?

    Did you enable access to the SD for homebrew stuff by patching sneek? If so you asked for it.

    That said, I'm not sure if testdisk works with SDs, but if it does that may help you recover if the partition table was wiped.

    No! I had a lot of homebrew that would be hard to find, not to mention precious one of a kind pictures.

    Also, I did not have SNEEK SD Card Enabled. I used the SNEEK Auto Installer v1b5. I also dumped my nand with BootMii and cleaned out some cIOS and titles to make it only have IOS, System Menu, and the Mii Channel. I had just setup the Wii Settings, then the screen went black after health and safety. I turned it of and back on and tried again. This time, I just got a black screen. After, I took it out and put it in my computer, to find it wouldn't read it.

    Get over it. Format it or lose your SD card and precious images. Try ubuntu, there's some shit on the internets about recovering data through linux.

    Why the hell would you put special one of a kind pictures on the same SD card as you use with homebrew apps!?

    Well, I'm sure you wouldn't put special pictures on an SD card and then delete them off the PC. That'd be foolish.

    Unless you try out data recovering software in some form of Linux you're screwed.

    Get a flash drive, put WiiXplorer on it, run it from the HBC, and copy all your stuff off of the SD.

    I would use something like wiixplorer if you can access the HBC and copy the data from sd to usb drive, check the data on usb drive is correct and then you can format the card

    was beaten to it by Krestent

    I'll use WiiXplore, thanks!

    The pictures were on the SD Card because I took them with the DSi Camera (I share the SD Card between the DSi and the Wii). I never got around to copying them.

    It won't recognize my USB, my computer won't connect to it's ftp, and I don't know how to use it's FTP Client.

    Id forget about doing it on the wii and try recovery tools

    first make a full backup using dd(linux) or whatever the windows guys use
    then run fsck(linux) or scandisc(windows) because they are included
    if that does not help there are better tools out there

    tutorialss should be available via internet search

    Ok, I got in, but it won't let me transfer all the SD Card data, only some of it.

    If You are on IOS58 or DVDX uninstalled there is high chance that ftpii/wiixplorer won't work.
    Wait for update.

    Sounds like you removed the card when it was being written to and it caused the file system to become corrupt, there are ways to recover the majority of your files.

    To do it from windows you could use a data recovery program, i use ontrack data recovery myself however there is a free one on piriform.com though ive never used it.

    To do it on the wii i'd put a second SD in the wii running the wii ftp server, connect to it via filezilla on the pc and just copy all the files back onto my pc via the network, though from reading earlyer post i think you may have tried this?

    all you need to do to setup the client is to put in the IP address of the wii i dont think there's a password by default.

    I'm not sure, as the Wii loads from it and reads it fine (Even non-homebrew).

    I got it to connect to FTPii, but it won't transfer all the data, only some of it.

    I'll try OnTrack Data Recovery.

    Try this ftpii version before:

    I compiled the latest source which works without DVDx.
