    And which guide on wiihacks advocates using this little "Brick My Wii" program again?

    Your witticism is quite astounding, as is your comprehension. "You're welcome" --- perhaps you should read the RECOMMENDED GUIDE section, hmmm?

    Well it looks like I made a mistake in thinking that this little forum might have useful insight for me.

    Mistake in not reading the rules you mean, right? Like the one that suggests first-time posters Introduce Themselves? There you'd get invaluable links to get the job done right.

    Nobody on wiihacks recommends Pimp My Wii; it is for a reason (made abundantly clear in our little nickname for that program). Good luck... stellar start to things, thus far.

    You might want to read the top of THIS GUIDE about brick my wii



    http://www.wiihacks.com/recommended-...tion-here.html

    -1:
    SD/USB Loader Error: Hardware not recognized. Most likely have a cIOS installed incorrectly, out of date, or missing. Possibly formatted the SD card or USB incorrectly, is unsupported, or not enough space.
    Q. I have formatted the device correctly but I am still getting this error; how would i fix this?
    A. Be sure to have the device hooked up to the Wii before you power it on. You may lack USB support as well. Installing a newer cIOS 249 would clear this up.(cIOS249 [56] d2x-v6)
    -1:
    Wad Install Error:Most likely you have cIOS installed incorrectly, out of date, or missing.Your SD card is not Formatted as FAT16 or FAT32 properly, reformat it. If a file was needed, then it was not in the correct folder.Each application needs its files in specific folders, so pay attention to that. Can also be a bad wad or not enough space on the Wii. (example: If your installing cios38rev17 offline make sure you have ios38-64-v3867 on the root of your sd)

    I really don't think this guy much likes the answers (though yours are more diplomatic) he's gotten based on a PM received at this end, lol
