Change the list?(1)

Wouldn't it be better to only include the BootMii version and not the stub version and mini version? What is meant by stub anyways? If these are different things to test, the list should have different entries with works/doesn't work for each thing to test. --WiiPower 17:42, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

In BootMii informations, there are these 3 informations... I suppose it 's important... 13:56, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

Change the list?(2)

Please add a column for nand backup testing. Some cards seem to work fine in bootmii, but fail to backup the nand. But be aware that sometimes the 1st try fails some some unknown reason, so test 2 or 3 times before posting that it doesn't work. --WiiPower 17:42, 16 May 2009 (UTC)

Identify actual SD Card manufacturer

Does anyone know of a way to identify the actual manufacturer of a given SD card? I have some retailer-rebranded ones that really just bloat out the list. I recalls seeing that some PDAs can do this...but can find nothing for PCs/Macs/etc.

Looking into it, it seems there is a "Card Information Structure" that contains the OEM IDs etc. It might be useful to display these IDs in BootMii's info display, or as a separate homebrew utility for those cards that BootMii won't detect at all.

One display I found suggested the following was available:

Manufacturer ID: 1
Product: S016B
Version: 4.5
Serial number: 3026619286
Manufacturing date: 12/2005

...and a bit more in the vague area here:
