    I spent a good portion of the night setting up my co-workers Wii.

    I added 20+ games to the USB HD and tested all games, launched it dozens of times no problems.

    I have the USB Loader GX channel installed on the wii menu.

    I gave it to my co-worker (MINUS THE SD CARD), not sure why..., but now she gets a code dump screen on launch.

    I guess my question is, once the channel is installed, do you need the files that are on the SD? cIOS, etc... or can you launch/play without SD card.

    Thanks, sorry for the dumb question.

    depends if it's a forwarder channel or a full install channel

    full install would still need the sd card to store files

    No forwarder installed.

    So, *any* SD card can be used for it to write temp files or does it need my SD card with the boot.dol/cIOS/etc...?

    Thanks!

    a lack of settings files would most likely not result in a code dump. it would just load the default values for each option.
