Hiya! ^o^

I was following this guide and it worked great! ^o^ Just one question though, is it possible to do the same or a similar thing to have the console read from an SD card in th SD card slot instead? Also what's the biggest capacity SD card the Wii can use?

Thanks! ^o^

To get it to load from SD card just extract everything to the SD card.

Then go to usb-loader folder and open the settings.cfg
file in Wordpad. Under Global Settings change Device: usb to sd and then save.

Now when you launch the USB Loader it will ask select WBFS device change it to SD/SDHC SD card and launch.

32GB is the largest SD Card a Wii can use.

Last night was a lil too late for me to try that, but I've tried it today. I can get the games to run off my HDD, but I can't get them to run off my SD card. Whenever i try to get the games to boot, it says booting game and then my Wii locks up and the disk drive just sits there flashing and doesn't boot anything... >.< Any idea why that is? o.0

Edit - Nevermind, I've solved it now! ^o^ It was so sinmple too... lol All I had to do was install the 50c update and all is fine now! ^o^

Thanks Muchly!

I thhink some SD cards are not as good quality as others.
not sure if you have SDHC or just SD.

there is a link to check game compatibility .
