    You have to create a subdirectory in the apps folder for each homebrew app.
    The app also has to be named "boot.dol" or "boot.elf"

    Example:
    SD:/apps/hombrew/boot.dol
    SD:/apps/homebrew/boot.elf

    Some SDHC cards just don't work with HBC, I bought a cheap no brand 4gig one and tried formatting it in every possible file system but HBC just wouldn't pick it up.

    i tried formatting to every possible format and still the same problem. i NEVER had this problem before...

    my sdhc card is :16gb sandisk which is brand new. i copied the files from my 1gb wii sd and placed it onto the sdhc. then i found this problem. any homebrew i out into the apps folder doesnt show up only the ones that were on it before. same with the 1gb...

    ive still not fixed it.

    As you said you should be able but in fact if something is wrong with the any xml file it can make problems.
    So do it or try something other
