    usb+SD

    So a friend helped me hack my wii and get homebrew on it so I would be able to do the rest at my place which is a couple hours away. But when i got back and tried to put anything else on it it didn't recognize my usb which wasn't that big a surprise its pretty old.

    But now i need a SD card, and the computers in my house dont have any SD slots so i need an SD that will work with the Wii but will be able to connect with the usb to the computer to get the (watch the language) i need that way, I've been looking but couldn't find anything that looked like it would work for sure, so you guys know any? Links would be nice.

    Look for an SD card reader. And please watch your language, this is a family site.

    Ok I think I found one online that'll work, its a micro SDHC with a reader and adapter, but I'm not sure if its compatible with the Wii. Amazon.com: 6GB MicroSDHC Card with Adapter & Micromate USB 2.0 Reader / Writer: Electronics I just want to make sure because if I get the wrong thing I wont have the cash to try again for awhile lol.

    Let's see... SDHC, adapter, and 6 gb. Triple whammy... You might have some problems running certain apps. But at least you got the brand correct, which is the recommended one.

    Wii didn't support SDHC unless you have system menu updated to 4.0+ so make sure you are running at least that version.

    If you can get a Sandisk, 1-2 gb, and non-adapter, that would be optimal. But IMO really risking it with the micro-adapter thing.

    lol yeah ty this helps, my system is 4.3u so that should be ok, but I should still get something else? if so links? apparently i suck at finding this stuff. Also is it possible to have it work with 4 gigs? I want to be able to also run games off the SD because my comp doesn't have a cd burner so I cant do it that way. What would be best is to find the sd card with a usb reader for around 20$ but i can go a little higher if necessary. Also the only app i really want to run is neogamma for games, don't really care about anything else right now. Again links are awesome, or at least something to look for, I wanna get the usb reader and SD together if possible. again thx



    Just found this,
    http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0010Z294O/ I read a few reviews and checked a few other places and people seem to recommend it for the wii, you guys think it looks good?

    Just found this,
    Amazon.com: Transcend 8 GB Class 6 SDHC Flash Memory Card with USB 2.0 Card Reader TS8GSDHC6-S5W: Electronics I read a few reviews and checked a few other places and people seem to recommend it for the wii, you guys think it looks good?
    well I searched and found this review on that item: Amazon.com: bryon m bougie "bmbougie"'s review of Transcend 8 GB Class 6 SDHC Flash Memory C...

    it should be okay, according to that review, but actually it wasn't specific enough about whether or not homebrew worked well or not.

    perhaps you should get other opinions, too, like of a moderators' before you make a decision.

    personally i use an official w 2 gb (recommended size according to mauifrog's softmod guide) sandisk one.. and it has an official Wii logo on it.
