    loading backups from 8gb SDHC card with Neogamma (or other loader)?

    i recently completed dogeggs softmod guide and everything went smoothly.
    though now its game time. being 4.0, my wii doesn't read dvd-rs.
    unfortunately i dont have a usb hdd handy.
    so my question is, can i run backups off an SDHC (sandisk 8gb) using neogamma(cos thats what i've installed) or any other loader?

    I'm in the same boat as this fellow. Everything seems to be operating fine (I can boot NSMB from my 2GB USB jumpdrive) but I have an 8GB SDHC (SanDisk) card that I need to utilize in order to boot ISOs larger than 2GB (most of them).

    I am new and have been doing my best to read these forums before asking.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    edit: also, if you can't help me with the problems above, what ISOs are out there that are under 2GB (post-scrub) other than NSMB?

    As long as you are on sys menu 4.1 or 4.2 (both have support for SDHC cards - anything less than 4.1 will not work).

    Then WBFS Manager & Cgf USB Loader will both support large capacity SDHC.

    Read these threads for game sizes after scrubbing:

    Thats just it, I'm updated to 4.2U. Neogamma boots copies fine from my 2GB USB, but when I attempt to boot the same copies from the Sandisk 8GB SDHC it gives me the error referred to here: http://www.wiihacks.com/wii-custom-s...sdhc-only.html .

    Even though they are being reported as "supported", it looks like when the loaders have found the game on the SDHC cards, then playing them is another matter altogether, and from techie peeps it looks like the IOS that the loader uses is pointing them towards the USB port once the game starts, and obviously there is nothing there - it doesn't call back to the SDHC slot.

    So if the game does not load into memory in one go, first off, they will never work, sorry.

    USB Sticks is the way to go if you can't get USB HDDs.

    Well thanks anyway. I posted for help no more than an hour ago, and already my suspicians have been confirmed. Also, that list will come in handy.
