A lot of people on the WiiBrew forums and on the #wiihelp on EFnet 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, successful usage of Twilight Hack with this card.
  • Homebrew Channel: Yes or no, successful usage of homebrew via the Homebrew Channel using your card? (Not initially installing the channel, just using it once it has been installed)

You might try comparing the page for Mini at BootMii/SD Card Compatibility List

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.

Note: If it does not work for you (especially with an SDHC card), please try again after reformatting on the Windows command line (Start > Run > cmd) using: format h: /fs:fat /a:4096

dag Dane-Elec SDHC class4 GB 016 Dane-Elec Didn't try Yes Only worked after reformatting on Windows command line using: format h: /fs:fat /a:4096
  • Note on SDC-32M: The 32MB card that came with my camera worked fine--but only after correctly reformatting. The original, failing format was FAT12. Reformatting with the "official" program failed too (result was also FAT12). But formatting FAT16 from the Windows command line worked, and both the Twilight Hack and HBC loaded up:
format h: /fs:fat /a:4096
  • Note on PQI 16GB Class 6: formatted using panasonic formatter with size adjust and it worked for the wii sd menu, but not for HBC. Without panasonic formatter, did not work for either.
