    Why would my wii be freezing when loading sdcard?

    It just freezes whenever I try to load up the sdcard, I've tried a few different programs they all freeze just right away when loading it. I have an old wii that I just got that had 3.0 firmware on it, I put 4.1 on it and am trying to mod w/ that firmware.

    Is your SD a true 2 GB San Disk? Have you formatted it to Fat32 before beginning? Are you following Dogeggs guide?

    A true San Disk 2GB is recommended for the mod. Many times nothing else will work. Some have had success with other brands, but SD is the least problematic. Try extracting the files directly to your sd card, selecting load from sd then insert the card. Try powering on with card inserted, not inserted. Sometimes you can "trick" the Wii into reading it. If you try all different methods and still no success, you will more than likel;y need the San Disk 2 GB. Walmart has the 2 GB Wii SD for $10, if you are in the states.

    If your talking about the SD Card Menu where you load VC,WiiWare games, delete the private folder you used to install the HBC.

    Ok sorry didn't realize it's against the rules, but for real from what I could tell whatever problem I had was fixed by that tutorial and not the multiple guides I found here...so if anyone has problems w/ the sd card freezing the system when they load it the reason is b/c for some reason they need to load the files on teh card in a 3 step process as outlined by that kid.

    Just trying to help.

    The guides here have worked for tens of thousands of members (except for you), the reason we don't want links to youtube videos is because alot of those tutorials are out of date, they're not supported by the poster, when members here have problems with one of those tutorials nobody knows what they did to their Wii, and there are too many tutorials on youtube for anybody to be familiar with to give help to somebody that has not followed the tutorial correctly. We just don't want to have to go searching a youtube video and download the content just to see what a user has done to his Wii. And, if you post a link to a tutorial like that, there will be others that cannot follow it correctly and want WiiHacks to fix their Wii. Nothing against you, just the link you posted.

    Fair enough makes perfect sense I understand. But just know, to any of you experts out there, if you see a 4.1 firmware problem where initially loading the SD card w/ teh files on it keeps freezing the wii...there is a method out there where you basically write to the sd card 3 separate times while moding...and in that piecemeal fashion for some reason those who's wii's were freezing when opening the SD card...will no longer do that.

    That said, I'm no expert I don't know WHY that is...but just throwing it out there to stick in the brains of someone who might. It could help troubleshoot for someone else in teh future.
