Now you need to copy the "sdloader.bin" file from the directory you extracted the file in the root of theSD Card. After this you can fill the card with various homebrew games, applications and emulators.

After preparing your SD Card insert it into your SD Card reader and plug into memory card slot A. Next pop in your Action Replay Card into slot B and the Action Replay disc into the Wii.

When the Action Replay boots up pick the USA flag and then ADD NEW GAME. SDLoad is the game name and push done. Then enter (m) as the code name. Enter the following code: 7YPR-RKZZ-MH6W5 D26A-PE4J-1XX2W ZJHY-B1ZH-6P00G
