    So tomorrow's boxing day and im thinking about picking up a 16GB sdhc card for my wii. I just wanted to make sure the homebrew channel does indeed support it and was wondering if you could store the roms and isos on it or do you store them in the system memory. I have the homebrew chanel already installed should i get the 16GB sdhc cards to play n64 and psx games on my wii

    edit: sorry i was very rushed writing this to the point can emulators for wii play iso and roms off the 16GB sdhc card?

    do not use sdhc, it doesn't work with the wii at all
    make sure it's a normal SD card, or a micro or mini SD card with an SD adapter

    It's a software issue as to why the normal Wii system-menu can't read the cards...the hardware is fully capable of doing so. And far as I'm aware most recently developed and compiled homebrew software hassupport for SDHC in its library. But, hold off on the card for now as the N64 emu really isn't quite there yet. Hopefully it will continue to progress as quickly as it has been.

    I'm using a Toshiba 4 Gig SDHC card and it works fine for my homebrew.
