    error Failed to read boot.elf (-1) can someone help?

    OK not sure if this is been asked or not but i went through and looked and i wasn't able to find anything so I'm going to ask.

    Has anyone gotten this and know what to do? I have a 3.3u Wii and its an older wii not one of the new ones with the lu 64. I used Twilight Hack - WiiBrew and now I'm getting this code and I'm not sure what to do. the first four of my wii are 6206 and I'm using a 512mb simple tech SD card. I'm so close just need a lil help. anyone able to help please i wanna play gh-m so bad i've been on Google all nite looking and nothing.

    code is error Failed to read boot.elf (-1)

    And i also know this so i tried it but No luck

    .ELF files are no longer used... You need to convert the Boot.ELF file into a Boot.DOL file. You can find the converter here:
    ELF to DOL Converter - WiiBrew

    Help!

    Its either one of two things: Your card is not formatted to FAT32 or it is incompatible, if it is formatted right try another card.

    Reformatted using both fat 16 and fat 32. I saw today that there is SD card made specially for the wii should i try using that instead of a normal camera SD card. What kind of SD card would you req. getting. I've been working on this for a few days now and stuck at this part. Do you think it may be the hack its self?

    No - its the card...some of them just don't work...no idea why? The wii ones are a bit overpriced, just get another plain SD card and cross your fingers
