SD Gecko Card
From OzModChips Wiki
There are 2 ways you can do this.
- Is to use the wiikey config disc in its raw format.
- The other, and the recommended way is to use the chiopped down version, which works about 4 times faster than the wiikey version in our tests.
To use the second option, please download this zip file and read the PDF! - SD Gecko Tutorial from Team Symbiote
The first option has instructions in a small readme file on the config disc, this is below
All the info you need is on the Wiikey Configuration disc in a readme file
here it is below

Most cards other than sdhc should work. We tested various cards from 512mb to 2gb. There may be some non-sdhc 4gb cards, but we didnt have one to test with. Cards smaller than 512mb should work, but are not recommended as they will require too much swapping.
Running dumptool.exe requires administrator privilege. Please login as an administrator or member of the administrator group.
Before using your sdcard for the first time, you need to format it using our tool. To do this simply run:
dumptool [driveletter] -c
This will format the card to fat16 and allocate space for the dumpfile. It will use all but 10Mb of the available space, in case you want to put some other applictions on there as well.
Depending on the size of your card the dumper will split up the image to multiple chunks. Once a single chunk has been dumped, you must download it to your computer using dumptool.exe.
There are two methods for downloading the chunks to your pc. Using the option -sd will store the data into a single image file called discimage.iso. This is the recommended way, because you dont have to join the parts after dumping.
dumptool [driveletter] -sd
will get the current chunk from the card and append it to the image file discimage.iso
Alternatively using the option -d will create a single file for each chunk ie. 00.rvl 01.rvl etc. You have join the parts manually when using this method.
DO *NOT* use multiple cards when dumping a single disc, it will result in bad dumps!
A complete image of a gamecube disc should be exactly 1459978240 bytes in size. The correct size for a wii disc image is 4699979776 bytes.

If commandlines scare you, you can also use the provided batch files formatSD.bat and dump.bat.
