    transfer files wirelessly to sd card?

    is there a way to transfer files wirelessly to the sd card inserted in the wii? i have ftpii installed and working but i cannot see how, if at all possible, to view the files on the sd card. is there another program that allows this capability?

    Once you have FTPii up & running ok, then use your favourite FTP client, I use FileZilla and I can copy files over & copy files from the SD Card to the USB HDD whislt I am in FTP mode.
    Please remember your manners - say Thank You if someone helped , it doesn't hurt

    Once you have fttpi installed on your wii you will need to start fttpi and look for your ip address it shoule look like this : 192.168.xxx.xxx you then download an ftp (google it) and set it up to connect to the wii's ip address and it should connect and show a folder named "SD/"

    As above...
    Filezilla is an open source app (freeware) and works really well.
    Run ftpii on the wii and it will connect to your network displaying the IP address.
    Enter this address in the server box in your PC client (top left in Filezilla)
    Hit connect and you shlould see two areas in most ftp clients, one is your local drive and the other is the wii system.
    Just like file explorer, click the wii system and it will show a number of 'sub directories' (they are devices at this level, like Linux)
    One of these will say sd (another usb if you have a usb drive installed)
    Drill down on the sd to the directory you want.
    All ftp clients I have used in the past (including Filezilla) allow the source file to be dragged across to the target.
    Works well and saves having to put in and take out the SD card.
    When you quit the ftpii app, unlike other servers, the ftp server app closes so you will have to restart it each time you ant to transfer files. I use mine for wads or apps.
