    Hey all,

    I tested different kind of SDHC and Classes of cards.

    Here is what I've got...

    1. SDHC supported in WII
    (4GB and above to either format to FAT system with 64k cluster or use a CLASS 2 SDHC e.g. SANDISK)
    Preferably to use FAT Filesystem.

    2. Homebrew SUPPORTS SDHC
    (Provided it is a CLASS 2 SDHC, click on HOME button and choose reload to let it read the SDHC again)

    Also,
    3. If you guys tries to format a SDHC using WINDOWS, you can only see FAT32 option. Go to CMD-Prompt, type following command
    FORMAT X: /FS:FAT

    Change X: to whatever drive name your computer shows.

    For 4GB, you probably able to see your wii memory having more than 25000+ blocks, of cos, 8GB you will get double.

    Hope all these helps.

    FYI: My wii specs
    Wii 4.0U + Wiikey2 + HBC 1.0.1

    HBC supports SDHC since beta 9. I tested 4GB Class 4 on 1.0.1 HBC. It works. Tried it to format to FAT filesystem. Reply here and let me know ya. Thx.
