    Us Wii 4.2u Softmod Help Please

    Hello all,I am trying to soft mod my wii 4.2u.I went to the forum here that has all the dload packets to pu on the sd card to do it but I am having no luck with any of them.I am unzipping the files and highlighting all of them and putting them on the sd card (which is a 1 gig card) putting it into the wii,and when i click on the sd card icon in the wii menu,nothing happens???I have searched and it appears that I am the only one having or has had this problem,I know I am probably doing something wrong for I am new at this,any help would be greatly appreciated,Thanks in advance.

    Have u tried reformatting the SD and trying again ? Some SD cards should be formatted using the FAT. Also, make sure there are no folders other that what is given in some of the tutorials here. I know from experience thus far only being a noob. I also have a 4.2U that i just had the HBC put on thus far. Needing help with the rest.

    No you are not the only one. a 2 gig sandisk sd card is recommended for best results. Make sure it is formatted to fat32 and that there are no gamecube controllers or memory cards plugged in.

    Thanks for the quick response,when I download the softmod packs there are no folders in the packs,it appears to be just files and .bins.There are no folders that I can see.I have formatted the sd card to fat before trying and did it again just to make sure and still nothing happened,I dunno,it is probably something simple I am just overlooking.I cant even get HBC or anything else on it

    Are you clicking on the SD icon in the bottom on the wii menu. Correct me if I'm wrong but you want to go though the settings then channels then then sd card.

    In Vista it should be enough to use in the Wii. Once formatted and all the files are downloaded to the PC........just extract the files to a folder for each step..and then copy them to the SD.....making sense so far?
