    Wii not seeing SD card

    I formatted my Patriot 2GB SD card to Fat32 & loaded bootmii using Letterbomb but when I insert it into my wii & look in the envelope in the lower right hand corner, there is nothing there. I searched in other dates in my mail, but no files exist. I dragged & dropped the files onto my SD card using my Mac. When I look inside my Letterbomb folder that I downloaded, the files inside are boot.elf, a folder named "private" which has a bunch of subfolders that are empty, & 5 .txt files (3 readme, 1 credit, & 1 license). It says to install the file to the root of the SD card, can that be done by dragging & dropping directly onto the SD icon on my desktop?

    Make sure the date and time are correct on your wii. Make sure you entered your wii's mac address correctly and choose the correct region when making the letterbomb.

    Date & time are correct, Mac address is correct & region is correct 4.3u (I'm assuming that stands for US). Any other suggestions? One other question I have....does it matter when using letterbomb which option you pick to download? There are 2 options ...."cut the red wire" & "cut the blue wire". Does it matter which one is picked?

    It doesnt matter which one you choose. Also, the contents of the folder need to be on your sd card. In other words, the boot.elf and the private folder should be on the root of your card.

    Whenever I get one that won't find the bomb, I format the Wii from settings. You could also try a different SD card.

    I use a 2gb Sandisk for Wii and it always works.

    Edit - oh yeah and it doesn't matter cut the blue or red wire.
