    Hi y'all.
    I'm looking to mod my childhood Gamecube system with a memory card exploit like with my Melee or Super Mario Sunshine copy but I'm not sure how big my Micro SD card needs to be for SD2SP2.
    I'm looking to rip my own games with Cleanrip on the Micro SD card and maybe download games I had but traded in at our local gameshop which I still regret to this day.
    Maybe run some homebrew but I don't know about any other good GC homebrew plus me having a GC backwards compatible Wii makes it redundant.

    Thanks in advance! :)

    The Sd Card can be as big as you want. I have a 64GB Card in it and it works like a charm ^^

    Each GCN game is 1.5 ish GB in size.
    Idk how many you have or want but I'd say ~128GB should be plenty.

    Hence roughly 1.5 GB in size.

    Hmm yeah I was struggling between 128GB or 256GB but I think 128GB should be good enough.

    Go for 256, i started with 64 and switched to 128, but a few multidisc games and emulators with roms will end you quickly at the limmit
    I find 256 perfect for my sp2sd2, but it’s all upto you in the end, just sharing my opinion

    Edit
    If you get “digital versions :lol::P:rofl2:” get the US one, if you ever want to upgrade to a Gamecube hdmi adaptor (if you have a dol-001 gamecube) more us versions support 480p the EU versions

    Yeah my Gamecube is the DOL-001 revision but I don't plan on using emulators on my GC. Just ripping my disc games, maybe adding a few on my PC and force them to 480p 60hz.
    The PAL versions of SSX Tricky and Wario World for example only play on 50hz by default and have no options to change it which annoys me a lot lol.

    I only have a 32gb sd in my sd2sp2... but only because that was the only spare card I had at the time.
    Having said that, there's not much else I need on it that isn't on it or I don't have on disk.
