    SD memory card

    hey, just wondering what is sufficient size of an SD card to get for softmodding?
    And is there any specific brands that work best?

    1 gig would probably be enough with software and nand backup. sandisk is the brand you'll want if you have the choice. although i have lexar that works just fine

    hey odd, thanks for the info...i've noticed a lot of your posts on this site and you have lots of helpful tips and info...here's another one for ya...

    i think i finally understand the .wad thing. basically whatever program you want to install on the wii you put in the wad folder on your SD card right? now my real question is after you install the program on the wii are you able to remove it from your SD card to make room if need be? HBC doesn't run from the SD card does it?

    i'll give you an example of what i would if i was gonna do a softmod using one of these tutorials (i did mine in june from Yafaze). i would take that sd card and format it fat 32 so that it is formatted with nothing else on it when i put the contents of a pack onto it. when i got to the next pack i would make a folder on my pc to put the the first pack on and save it exactly how it was. then i would go so far as to reformat it again and put only the contents of the second pack. everytime i remove the contents from the card if they are different from before i back them up to my pc. a also make a few copies of my nand and even have it on disk just in case. so you can remove the wad files after you install but back up your files to your pc. and yes you have to have an apps folder on the sd card with the apps you want inside it for it to show up on the homebrew channel
