    I was using my softmodded Wii today, as I always do, and everything was fine. I removed the SD card so I could update my CIOS as I was gonna install Zelda Skyward Sword. When i put the SD card back in and went to Homebrew Channel, there was nothing there, just bubbles going up, no icons for my apps. I removed the card and re-inserted, no luck.

    I went back to my Wii menu and tried USB Loader GX, it just got as far as it's splash screen then rebooted. I tried formatting the SD card and adding the files back on, no luck. I tried a different SD card, still no luck.

    Using the original SD again, I tried inserting it then holding it in, pressing harder, etc, and Homebrew Channel started showing a circle moving round, but no icons appear. I tried this a few times, and eventually my icons in Homebrew Channel showed up, but if I try to launch any of them, Homebrew channel just says "Launching WAD Manager" or "Launching USB Loader GX" for example, and "0%" and just stays like that forever.

    Any idea what's going on?

    Thanks

    Press 1 and see if the SD option is grayed out.

    Try the most obvious test, put the SD card in your computer/laptop or w/e and see if it works, might be corrupted, if it does work then try this - blow on your SD Card and re-insert it firmly, not with force.
