Problem booting from SD Card Waninkoko 1.5
Hi people, I am relatively new to this and am struggling to find the answer to my problem.
I have recently softmodded my wii with the "Softmodding for dummies V4.1" I believe that comes with "cIOS 36 rev10".
Most things seem to be fine, i can boot backups from dvd-r no problem. My issue is with the waninkoko SD/USB Loader 1.5. I can install/rip a game to the SD card no problem. Then i choose to boot the game, to which it responds
"Booting Wii game, Please Wait..."
The screen then goes black and i get
"An error has occured, Press the eject button, remove the game disc, and turn the power off, Please read the Wii manual for more information"
I have tried 2 different SD cards, several games all with the same result.
I have also taken the game I ripped with waninkoko 1.5 from the SD card using WBFS Manager to extract the iso, I then patched the update and burned it to a DVD-R. The game works fine from the DVD-R
It seems when the game is ripped to the SD card there is no problem with the rip, it's just booting from the SD card which isn't working.
I have searched for answers but to no avail. Any help would be really appreciated as i am wanting to store me backups on an external hdd and boot them from there.
Thanks in advance!
usually i load from a wbfs formatted hdd so if ur sd is fat it wont load ur game to the wii,and why store ur games on a sd i have a 1TB western digital formated wbfs 50 games so far and only 90gb used and gx is better i think well let me know if u work it out
I agree that a HDD is the way to go and that is my plan but i just wanted to test things out before i went ahead and bought a new HDD. The SD card is formatted in WBFS as the loader does that before ripping the game, I would assume it should work but it doesn't seem to be. Maybe i should try the GX loader and see if that works. Should I go ahead and buy the HDD and hope for the best? what do you think?

OK so I managed to borrow an external HDD a seagate freeagent 120gb to be precise and i got a little further.
One game gave me a different error, another started to boot but then failed, and another booted to the menu, let me select my game then crashed out. This was the same with waninkoko loader and GX loader. I guess it's just all down to using the correct HDD. I'll check a compatibility list and buy one that is recommended. Cheers for your help.
Ok Just to clarify. I borrowed a friends USB memory stick and it worked no problem so it's all just down to the compatability of the device you are using.
Peace out and thanks for you help 420soljah808
Good info to know.... do you mind sharing the brand of the stick used?
It was one i borrowed off a friend but i have given it back so i don't know the exact model. I will find out for you, all i remember is that is was a "sony 8GB" and i tested it with Mario Kart and it worked no problem. Hope this helps
