    Why does sd card need to remain into wii after hacks??

    I flawlessly performed the hack to install and then run backup games on a external USB drive. I tested it and it worked great. After I was done for the day I removed the SD card and then formatted it and then put it back into my camera. On the following day, I turned on my Wii and went to HBC and found out all of my executible files were gone such as USB loader. Does the wii need the SD card in the slot to run USB loader? Now since I deleted the files on my SD card do I have to start over with the hack or just redownload the files to the SD card again? Can I make that I do not need the SD card in the wii?

    Why do you have to leave the SD card in? Because apparently all of your homebrew apps were stored there. If your drive is FAT formated or you have a FAT partition on your drive you can do as peire suggested and put them there, but some programs aren't USB compatible. You don't have to re-softmod your Wii...just replace the files you deleted and everything should be good. My suggestion would be to buy your Wii it's own SD card. They are cheap and invaluable when it comes to hacking your Wii. I have three different ones specifically for and only used by my Wii.

    LOL You found my weakness! I believe myself to be fairly well versed on the Wii in general but I have yet to try a USB loader other than GX. It was the best of the bunch when I set up my HDD but I don't necessarily know if that's the case anymore. I've just kind of stuck with it because it hasn't given me problems until recently and my kids are used to it. I've been meaning to try the other loaders for a week or two now but just haven't found the time. There are a couple of polls on here about our favorite USB loaders (one old/one recent) with posts on why people feel their choice is the best. You might want to check them out.

    I have both, Cfg and GX.

    I fell in Love with CFG, It's Flawless.(Works With Every Game.)

    It's funny to hear everyone say cfg>the rest and then look at the poll and see that 54% use GX.
