    part B problem on 4.2 guide

    Im struggling with part B of the guide, I've done everything up to this stage with no problem.

    Ive formated SD card to FAT32 unzipped the first file and extracted to the card so when I click on card at PC it has a folder that says "Place to SD 4" and then when I click on this it has all the files mentioned.

    So I put this into the SD slot on the Wii click on the Home Brew channel and then click home but I only get the 4 options "Back" "About" "Exit to System Menu" and "Shutdown" no other options.

    I have tried the other 2 files but still get the same thing, anybody got any ideas what I'm doing wrong

    thanks

    Do you have these files in the root of the SD

    B2)Format the SD card, with FAT32, place the contents of the included folder in the SD card root. Only files in SD root should be:
    root:\Wad\
    root:\bootmii\
    root:\startup.elf
    root:\boot.dol
    root:\00000001\ <-(if available)

    The root is the main directory under the device's name. ie
    SD\this is the root.

    OK think I done that, so when I click on the card on PC should it show files the

    Wad
    bootmii
    startup.elf
    boot.dol
    00000001-

    or show folder Place to SD 4 and then when I click on that folder show the above files.

    And should these be the only things on the card?

    thanks
