    Pretty much what the thread title states. I'm having difficulties getting nintendont to boot and play my gamecube isos on my sd as I cannot seem to figure out how to make it show up in the homebrew channel. Any help is much appreciated..

    Hello,

    SD card capacity ?? , format in what format?

    Try reformatting your SD card, then put your homebrews back

    Prefer an SD card and not micro SD.

    Hi! It's a 64gb FAT32 standard SD card. I'll try reformatting it...

    I took the files off and reformatted it to fat32, then put the filed back on. Now when I boot up the homebrew channel, there's nothing on it at all.

    That's how mine looked originally, it wouldn't seem to boot though. Can't seem to figure out why. 2019-04-13 (2).

    I just re-reformatted it, using guiformatter, as fat32 32kb. Currently transferring files back over. I'm putting nintendont in \wiiu\apps as well this time to see if it'll make a difference. GC games worked fine before through mocha after I patched iso's to wup with wii u usb helper. The problem with that is not all gc games are on there. Nintendont's loading screen would boot up when I booted gc games, it just wouldn't show up in the homebrew channel.

    SD Card Formatted to Fat32 in 32768k Clusters

    Other than this Bud try grabbing fresh copy possible corruption.

    I'll report back when the files are finished transferring and I try it again. You're saying I should re-install nintendont, correct?

    I just replaced my files with the ones you linked and it still doesn't show up in homebrew...maybe I'll just put them on my ps3...unless you have any other suggestions? Thank you for your help CORE

    That is odd?

    do you have another SD Card just to test perhaps it does not like the Card.

    I am having the same issue. I put nintendont in the proper location on my SD card. Launch Homebrew...it sees my other apps such as Mocha, WUP loader, etc but nintendont doesn't show up.

    Nintendont is a Wii homebrew app, not a WiiU homebrew app. You won't find it in with Mocha and WUP loader in the haxchi Homebrew Launcher. You'll find it in Wii mode in the Homebrew Channel. Alternatively, you can install a forwarder in both vWii or with WUP loader for the WiiU menu. The forwarder on the WiiU menu will even give you Game Pad support you won't normally have in Wii mode.

    Thanks for the response. I actually did figure that out once I saw a YouTube video on it. The other sites I was using didn't make that very clear. I'll try the forwarder thing too if I have time...I'm not very tech saavy but can follow directions if they are explicit enough
