    SD Card failed me

    So I hacked my wii about a year ago. Had CFG, WiiMC, and a few odd and end emulators installed each with their own channels.

    I use my wii ALL THE TIME... wiimc is constantly used and cfg has always worked good as well.

    One day last week we loaded up Donkey Kong Country and it worked fine.

    We went to bed and tried to play the next day and NOTHING would work. It acted like the SD Card is blank so i put it in the PC to look and all the files were still there (800-900mb worth) but the files are kinda frozen... i can't do anything to them. I can't copy them to my pc, can't delete them, can't format card, nothing... (yes, i made sure the lock wasn't on)

    Anyways, I've got a new SD Card and i'm wanting to start over. I'm afraid to follow a guide from the start again since it's already been hacked once. Would that be a bad thing to do or would it be safe?

    I'd just download the files that were on the sd all over again, as it wasnt the wii files that were lost just the sd files.

    I have the file names and thats it. It's been over a year since I hacked it. I remember NOTHING about the names or versions.

    You can download the newest files, if you had the same files from over a year ago they must've been outdated.

    If its cfg usb loader, look at the home tab of this forum and you'll find a cfg usb loader mod article with downloa link.

    If emulators look them over at wiibrew.org or download homebrew browser and install themfrom there, etc

    Here is what I can see on the SD Card... any idea where I would start and what I'd do?

    That is definitely not the way an sd card should look. The paths for your apps should be sd:\apps\(app name)\boot.dol. Also, you are missing the usb-loader folder on the root (CFG needs that). Looks like your old card is so corrupt you can't even tell what the file names were. You are going to need to start all over again...

    If I were you I would use google to search here for the names of all of your apps that don't work anymore without your sd card to get the guides to reinstall them. Example: Let me google that for you

    EDIT: Oops, Red already told you where to go for cfg... Regardless, just follow the same syntax in google, follow the name of the app with /site:wiihacks.com

    So, if i just get the files on the SD card they will work? I dont' remember ANYTHING about the original process... like if there was any installation involved or just loading the file.

    They "should". Its as simple as copying the boot.dol to the correct folder, or extracting the file folder to the correct place depending on how it was originally packed. Most guides will tell you how exactly to do it.
