    Question SD Card

    Hey guys,

    I have an HDD with games on it.
    I've temporarily lost my USB cord, therefore cant play.

    I have an SD card with:

    -Apps
    -Config
    -Images
    -Private
    -Wad

    *Questions*

    1. What do I need to keep?
    2. Where do my savegames go?
    3. How would I load a 4.5GB ISO to my 2GB SD card?

    Thanks!

    1. only keep what you use.
    2. game saves get saved on the Wii internal memory.
    3. 4.5GB ISO will not go on a 2GB SD card.

    Just get a new cord for your HDD or use a USB memory stick, otherwise you will need a WBFS partition on your SD card.

    My SD Card only formats as a whole, it wont let me partition it...

    So...

    How do I go about playing the WBFS formatted games on the card?

    The same way you do a usb device. Use wbfs manager to drop an iso onto it. Use the sd option from the game loader, i use neogamma.

    did you try downloading partitiong software likr gparted? I use acronis... if you dont partition it youll need the full channel of a backup launcher installed on your wii via wad manager.. the new super mario bros iso is 4gb but shrinks down to only 350mb after it goes through the wbfs manager... why cant you partition the sd card?

    I only have GX USB, I cant seem to install it with Neo side-by-side..
    And Im not sure why I cant partition it..
    To partition I go : Computer (Manage) > Disk Management > Right-click card. (Only have the option to full format, not resizing)

    What is the point in partitioning a SD card???? Its hella small and most iso wont even fit on the SD card. what you need is to have usb loader gx installed as a channel. If you have it installed as a channel, then you can just move everything to the computer until you get your another cord for you HDD.
    Come to the Irc room to get help or just have fun

    Motivation alone is not enough. If you have an idiot and you motivate him, now you have a motivated idiot.

    you need to download partitioning software if you still want to partition it...I have a link to the one i use but i cant copy and paste because im on my wii typing this .. but if you look at the threads i created I posted the link in the one called 'New super mario bros on sd only'....

    also: thier right..not many games that small
