Is a sandisk 4 gb sd/hc no good for the job cause i keep getting:
The device inserted in the SD card slot can't be used.
Thanks will have to buy one, btw can i use 2gb micro sd with the sd adpter then i can use it in my phone once i've done, or will that not work either.
microSD 2GB Sandisk works fine with adapter and I have about 4 of them. The adapters are straight through adapters and change nothing electrically.
Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.
i have been getting the same message as above, but the difference is i already had softmod programs on my wii, but gave the wii to a friend to put in meogamma 7 and i got it back with all channels gone.
so thinking i could use a new sd card (friend lost the original) i put all the programmes onto new card and inserted in wii and im getting ....the device inserted in sd card slot cant be used. ive tried another 3 sd cards and they all say the same
wots happened to my wii and how can i fix it ???
First try fomating the Sandisk 2GB card with this, sdfv2003.exe
Did you make a backup of the card your 'friend' lost, and copied that onto the card.
Has an update happenend, are you still on 3.1.
Best to try and get the system back to how it was, if thyats not possible you may have to follow the guide to update to 4.1
thank you wiijohn for replying. my system has not been updated. should i do this online as the wii wont read any sd card so cant do it that way.
i didnt make a backup of the sd so i dont have the original programs. ive formatted the sd with your tool and reinserted the new programs and still nothing.
is it possible the new programs im trying to put in are are conflicting with anything thats left in the wii from the original sd programs.
the problem i have is the only way it seems to sort it has to be done through the sd. but as my wii wont read any card then i dont know where to go from here.
many thanks for your help in advance
