    I had a vwii working fine couple of mothes ago but I lost my SD card with all my files on it so I went to the vWii guide and it said I must get a 2gb card , Is there any way of doing this with another SD card ? becaues I don't know where the card is , and I don't have any other SD card with low spoace
    I have the loadiine 64GB SD card and some 32 or something
    How can I tell which SD card will work with vwii ?
    thanks in advance !

    If you already hacked vWii, you can use any sd card you want pretty much. The 2GB card is only for doing the disc based hack, nothing more.

    In order to hack the vwii I must have a 2GB SD card , but in order to use it I just need the files on any SD card ?

    I'm not sure what you don't understand.

    A 2GB card is needed to hack the vWii. The exploits don't work with SDHC cards, except for maybe Smashstack. Still safer to use a 2GB card.

    After it is hacked, you don't even need an SD card in the vWii. It is only needed to install wads, or run homebrew/games from the SD card. And games are much faster from a USB.

    Yes that is correct.
