    Hey all,

    So here's my issue in a nutshell.
    I am able to run pretty much all the homebew that I want on my Wii u, however, the sd card I'm using is only 32gb. I got myself a new 64gb sd card last night and so I copy/pasted all the files from one card into the other. When I plug in the new one, none of my homebew seem to work. Haxchi get stuck in an infinite loading screen and my wii homebrew channel has no apps in it.

    I transferred all the stuff back into the smaller card and everything seems to be alright except usb loader now doesn't recognise my wii games. sigh*

    How do I clone the sd card in order for the new one to be able to play all my games.

    Cheers!

    Hey Marko, you were correct, that's exactly it! Thanks a bunch!
    I missed a step during my transferring of the files. Everyone now works fine except for the Wii hbc. USBLoader-Gx doesn't detect the usb drive that's connected to the back of the wii. Was working just fine before, I've got no clue why and what could be causing this.
