    SD activity light for Wii


    [DeadlyFoez] wanted to know when the SD card in his Nintendo Wii was in use. He built and indicator LED using a PICAXE 08M and added it next to the SD slot. He uses one pin of the microcontroller to monitor the voltage on one pin of the SD card slot. That pin has a specific value when the card is idle, which rises when itís in use. He didnít share the details of which pin heís sampling, or what the magic number from his source code actually represents. But the concept should be enough of a start if you want to do this one yourself. Watch it go blink-ity-blink in the clip after the break.

    I remember xflak mentioning this in a thread over at temp. I'm glad foez posted a video up of his work. It looks nice.

    Maybe DF has only retired from WiiHacks.com, or maybe not.

    I don't see how this is useful. This could take some of the power that the power supply creates, which may not be good for those that use a usb hdd that gets its power from the USB port.

    EDIT - I see this was posted already, view the original post here - http://www.wiihacks.com/wii-customiz...tml#post482624
