    So I softmod and everything works perfectly, so do I still need the sd card in the wii? if not, can i delete the contents on the sd card (i have the files backup on my computer)?

    Also i have transferred my games using wiifusion (mac) to my external hdd in wbfs format, can i transfer my games to my friend's external hdd from my external hdd or must I keep the games on my computer to transfer to his using wiifusion again?

    thanks

    Keep files on it if you don't need it for something else. Old apps run better on SD, and flash is faster. It's also the only way to use bootmii.

    you need to keep the files on the SD card i believe as thats there the initial booting of channels is done
    and indeed BootMii

    SD cards are cheap so if you need to use that one buy a cheap 2GB for a few bucks

    Does that mean the sd card has to be in the wii at all times?

    If you have your NAND and whatnot backed up on your PC or whatever yeah you can delete stuff off it and not use it. I have my old 2GB SD card in the cupboard but it just has the NAND and BootMii files on it if I ever need them, now I use a 32GB SDHC card for all my homebrew.

    If you're using a USB then no you don't need the SD card inserted.

    i leave mine in at all times, i only store the games on my USB external
    easyier to add apps and change settings without having the lug a hdd to the pc
    believe its needed for other apps as well

    guess its up to personal prefence
