    You will need a sd card for your loaders to run. Go buy one and then come back to us for help.

    Hi Toby 1978, Not stricktly so. On the SD card comment. I have recently had a small problem with a Friends console I set it up with a 160gb HDD on Fat 32, All neccesary files on root of drive. Apps, Usb_loader, WiiMc,Movies, Music, Wbfs. Excellent he cried. Three months later he returns with a
    1TB seagate powered HDD formatted NTFS, He had transfered everything to new drive added movies, pictures more games. Shoot wiimc dose not work.DSi Crash Dump. Or returns to wii menu. Everthing else CFG loader, Neogamma all OK. Only then I found that you can sort this using a small 128mb SD card with Wiimc installed in apps folder, A little confirmation from bmarlo, advised me to remove <IOS reload> from the meta file and no more crash dumps. So depending which loader you use and how you set up your gear, It is not always needed to run with SD cards.

    Not too complex I hope.

    True, but he didn't mention anything about that. I would imagine that the majority of people use a SD card for their programs.

    Sorry Dude I mod daily And Never leave SD cards any where. But I'm not here for an argument It's an open forum It's Either Neo, 9b46 for discs.
    or CFG 65 249,57 20 for me on HDD, Nothing for kids to fiddle with,

    Thanks for your comment though. We are all aiming at the same goal
