    so im trying to use my sd card for loading games, but when i insert the sd, the wii shuts off. i try to turn it on, but the light goes away and wont power. this is fixed when i remove the SD (i have to use scissors cuz it gets stuck) i really want to play games off my SD! i tried with usb but usb loader wont recognize my usb, yet the Homebrew channel does... any thing i can do to fix the SD? or usb problem? thanks!!

    are you using a sd adapter for microsd or minisd card? if so, do you have another adapter else check your sd port to see if any contacts are bent or out of norm. could be due to shorted contacts upon insert.
