    SD Card Questions?

    Im softmodding my Wii.I bought a 2gb Sandisk SD card but my computer doesn't have an SD card slot so I bought this SD card reader and writer:
    Amazon.com: 4 in 1 Mini USB 2.0 Memory Card Reader Writer SD MINISD MMC MOBILE RSMMC - Compatible with Sony, SanDisk, Toshiba, Lexar: Everything Else
    Now I can transfer files from my computer to the SD card.
    The thing is though my computer doesn't recognize the SD card as an SD card.It recognizes it as removable disk.Will this still work.Here are the pictures of what I got on the card right now.

    As long as your card looks like the right hand side of the screen shot when you look at the root DIR of the card.

    You failed at extracting the files to your SD card properly.

    The folder SD card is erroneuos and should not be there.

    The copy contents to sd card folder is erroneuos and should not be there.
    Not really doing much Wii stuff these days.

    Basically, take everything in the folder 'copy contents to sd card' and place them all on the root of the SD card.

    And make sure the SD card is FAT32

    OK I think I got it right this time.I sent everything inside the copy contents to SD card to the removable disk and Formatted the SD card to Fat32.Is this right now?

    There is conflicting information concerning which file allocation table to use; either FAT or FAT32. The tut in here says to use FAT only and in another place in one to the threads state to use FAT32 so which is it. My card does not allow for FAT to be implemented at all so I assume that it is definitely FAT32 then. I still get the error:"The device inserted in the SD Card Slot can't be used.
