Hi,

I have a very weird issue which was perfectly fine till 2 days ago , I have my GC games on SD card (256GB) and rest of my games on Ext HDD USB. (the reason for doing before you say why don't you put GC games on USB is ===> when I put my GC games on USB for some reason it crashes but works on SD card so i had to use two separate physical storages)


The issue:
WiiFlow Lite could see everything perfectly when i changed the GC partition to SD , since 2 days ago Neither of WiiFlow or USB loader GX can detect the SD card :unsure::cry:

here is the troubleshooting i have done:

- WiiExplorer detects the SD card with no issue and the content.
- while Wiiflow(5.4.4) and USB loader don't detect the SD card , Nintendont detects the GC games on SD card and runs with no problem.
- Just for a test , i copied few games to another smaller size SD(64GB) to check if change of SD will help but no luck again :sad:. Nintendont works fine but USB-Loader nor WiiFlow don't detect the SD.

Any idea guys? I'm going crazy:wacko:


Cheers
Samy

Hello.:)

I am sorry to hear from your Troubles with the SD Card.
It is always annoying,when Things works and suddenly stop working.

I am sure,your SD Card(s) are formatted with FAT32.
I am suspecting you are using an microSD Card with Adapter ?
(Please say,I am wrong.:D)

Have you maybe checked your SD Card(s) of Errors ?
You can use a Tool like H2testw

Good luck.
Thank you.:)

Hey mate,

Thanks for coming back,

I am sure,your SD Card(s) are formatted with FAT32.
==> Yes , Nintendont detects the SD with no drama where WiiFlow doesn't.

I am suspecting you are using an microSD Card with Adapter ? (Please say,I am wrong.:D)
==> Correct micro SD with adaptor :shy: , it was working fine till 2 days ago:wacko:

Have you maybe checked your SD Card(s) of Errors ?
===> I tested with Windows checker but didn't find any issue.

I tested with another micro+adaptor:( but that one also didn't work , what makes me crazy is , if any issue with the card howcome Nintendont works perfectly fine reading from it? :unsure::unsure:


Vielen dank :grog:

(As I said,I unfortunately have feared it...:D).

Thank you.:)

So the regular SD Card has the same Issue.:(
Did you have/see the "Applications" on the Homebrew Channel ?

If yes,then maybe some "Paths" are incorrect set in your USBLoaders.:unsure:

Thank you.:)

Yeah, WiiFlow or USB loader run Wii games from my USB with no issue. (I can see both from Homebrew channel)

The issue is when in USB loader or WiiFlow i try to change path , it doesn't even detect the SD so i can change path.


Super danke

Danke.

For the Homebrew Channel please:
Is it set to read the Applications from the SD Card or from the USB HDD ?
(Pressing "1" on the Wiimotion Controller brings up the Setting Screen)

And then,if you be so kind,can you make a Screenshot from the USBLoader GX and WiiFlow Path Settings please (or writing it here in your next Answer please).

By the Way,do you use WiiFlow Lite Mod v5.4.4 or Wiiflow v4.2.1 ?

Thank you.:)

- Homebrew runs from USB

- Pls check the video i just made , i uploaded in my G-Drive and made it public. In this video you can see Nintendont detects the SD and games on it but WiiFlow/USB Loader GX only sees the USB.

==> No specific reason , i started with WiiFlow lite while it's being worked on (5.4.4 was released few days ago).
(the issue is the same on USB Loader GX as well . doesn't detect SD:wtf::wink:)

Hello,

I used a SDHC card, what is the best way to have apps and games (wbfs) on the same card?

FAT32 and 32k clusters but 1 primary partition or 2?
