    How to upgrade to a new SD card?

    I am working on a 4.2U Wii, and have USBLoader GX on a 2 gig sd card. It works perfectly. I just purchased an 8 gig sd card, and figured I could just copy all my files to that, and it would work fine. However, it does not. I can't see the contents of the card in the homebrew channel, and when I open USBLoader GX (through a shortcut on the mail channel screen), I get "Exception (DSI) occurred!" with a nice stack dump. Is there anything special I need to do with the new 8 gig card? I formatted it as FAT32 before copying all the files over.

    I need to get this done ASAP as this is my sister's system, and she has to leave town very soon. Any hints would be much appreciated!

    You may have to update your ios to support sdhc. If it has been quite a while since you modded, you could check out mauifrogs softmod any wii guide (link in my sig). There is a section in there to updat your softmod.

    afterthought: did you remember to format the card to fat32 with a FULL format?

    It might just be an incompatible SD card. Try FAT16 and see if that works. You might also want to try something other than GX. Configurable USB Loader is the most compatible. GX is fail.

    Strange Ive never had a problem with gx laoder. & I am also using a 8GB sd card.

    Could just be the sd card itself,not all makes are compatible.

    As it turns out, USBLoader GX just doesn't seem to like my SDHC card. I tried Configurable USB loader, and that seems to work okay, except all of my programs in the Homebrew channel now say "This is not a valid Wii application". That will be my next thing to figure out.

    I didn't realize you had an SDHC card. Most SDHC cards have limited/no compatibility with homebrew. The same applies to SD cards over 2GB.
