SD/SDHC Card Compatibility Tests

From WiiBrew
Jump to: navigation, search

A lot of people on the wiibrew forums and on the #wiihelp IRC have reported problems using the Twilight Hack or loading homebrew applications in the Homebrew Channel. These same people claim to have fixed their problems by using a different SD or SDHC card. The purpose of this page is to collect data about the SD or SDHC card you are using to determine which SD and SDHC cards cause problems and which don't.

  • User: Input your username.
  • Card Type: What type of card you are using.
  • Card Size: What size your card is.
  • Card Manufacturer: Who made your card.
  • Twilight Hack: Yes or no, were sucessful in running the twilight hack with your card?
  • Homebrew Channel: Yes or no, were successful in running homebrew via the Homebrew Channel using your card? (Not initially installing the channel, just using it once it has been installed)


Note: SDHC cards do not work with the Twilight hack, only the Homebrew Channel beta 9 or greater. MMC cards do not work in the Wii at all. Also try to follow the order when posting your test.
