SD-load issues...

Post by R3dfaction » Tue Jun 08, 2010 6:54 pm

I burnt an iso with SD-Load and it runs the program but it does not load any dol's (or rather read them) on my Sd card via Wiikey Adapter. Is there something I'm doing wrong? I was also mentioned by emu_kidid to embed SD-Load it within the Cobra BIOS but I'm not unsure on how to accomplish that.

I have my dols on the root of the Sd cards (Tried with 2gb SD and 8 Gb Micro SD) and it just shows a blue bar. Any help would be appreciated...

Firstly, SDLoad won't work with SDHC cards (4GB and over in size basically) as well as some microSD cards, even if they're under 4GB sometimes.

If you're using the SlotA & B version of the DOL, make sure you've plugged the adapter into the correct slot (If you don't press A on startup, it's slot A, otherwise it's slot B).

Finally, make sure the contacts are clean on the wiikey SD adapter as they can be quite tempramental if they have even a spec of dust.

Hope this helps!

Tried both slots with the 2gb SD Card and still shows a blue line across, anything else I press ends up in a code dump, any other suggestions? Would embedding SD-Load in the BIOS make a difference (even I doubt it)?

Since you have a viperGC Extreme, just flash the .DOL onto the 2MB flash.
