    How to play GameCube backups on USB with Dios Mios Lite?

    I was able to get it all working with my SD card, but it only holds 2 gb, so I could only fit one game. I got that game to work in Configurable USB Loader. I use an external hard drive for Wii backups with Configurable USB Loader, and I was wondering if I could get GameCube backups working on USB the way I got it working with SD so that it comes up in Configurable USB Loader. Is this possible or should I buy a bigger SD card?

    If you want to use DML buy a 32 gb sdhc card.

    Thank you I'm following that guide and I've done everything except I tried it with my NTFS external hard drive just to see if I could get away with it, but it didn't work. I put my game backup folder in USB\games\ folder and it didn't show up in Configurable USB Loader. And I put the "DM" option on. I also installed the DIOS MIOS v2.0 wad file, but in WAD Manager 1.4, not 1.7. Is the reason why it didn't come up because my drive is NTFS and not 32kb cluster FAT32? I play Wii backups on my NTFS drive just fine. I want to know if that's the reason why it's not showing up because I want to narrow it down to that problem before I format it. I'm going to try using Aomei NTFS to FAT32 Converter 2.0 because I don't want to lose all my data, although I've already backed up all the important files so if a format with EASEUS Partition Master is required, then I guess I'll do it. Was my game supposed to show up in Configurable USB Loader, though? I want to make sure the partition is the only issue before I format it.

    You will have to format the drive to Fat32 with the cluster size being 32kb and primary and active.
    Dios Mios does not have support for NTFS, and I am not sure if it ever will.

    No, I don't believe it will show up in the NTFS partition , As it's not supported by Dios Mios.

    Okay thanks, can anything bad happen if I format it to fat32? Like will there be any disadvantages from not having NTFS anymore?

    No, nothing will happen and the only disadvantage is you will have to split the wii games up that are more then 4GB's.
    You can use the Wiibackup manager to split the games up by going to options then to setting's then to Ntfs/Fat Then go to Wbfs Split Style and change it to 4Gb's and in Misc UN-check all.

    I tried formatting and I chose the correct options, and it's a "Pending Operation". I don't know how to actually do it or if it's doing it.
    Here's what I have:


    And when I go to Computer, my drive looks normal - same amount of space left.
