aright well I found another usb lying around ( EMTEC 16 gb) that isn't on that compatibly list but on another one I found that was tested an said it worked and i had the exact same problem. no disk image, restarts to hbc. I played around with the setting and that didn't help at all. Could there be anything else I'm missing?
I hate to bug in on a post I haven't been thru with all of the way... But... When you formatted to NTFS, did you drop the game files into a "wbfs" folder, and are you using a wii backup game manager type program for all of the iso > wbfs file conversions?
That's fine I need all the help I can get lol
No Wii backup game manager didnt load my iso's for some reason. (I think becasue it only does wii roms not gc roms)
I used wii backup fusion instead and i didn't have a folder named wbfs. Should i try making a folder named that using backup fusion?
I tried this and now the iso's arent even recognized lol

Are you loading both gamecube games AND wbfs games?
B/c depending on which system you're looking at, that'll determine the help a little better lol.
I have only put on gamecube games using wii backup fusion but doest that convert them into wbfs? lol i dunno I have no idea with this shit
Ok, whoa whoa whoa whoa whoa lol. If you have a ripped game original-type ISO, use the DiscEx create-wad file setup found here: DiscEx and DML Wad Manager. Merge these two into a folder, and instructions can be found here. It might be confusing so try it as best you can lest you need help.
Actually here's the instructions for quick reference:
- Download DiscEx and DML Wad Creator. Put these in the same folder.
- Start DML Wad Creator (the .bat file), following the on screen instructions to compress your Gamecube ISO and create the necessary files. (simply drag the iso to the box when it asks you to). Some games do not work uncompressed so you may want to check the compatibility list at the bottom of this post. Compressing is only good for saving space on your HDD. It does nothing else.
- A folder will be created such as "GLME01", the one for Luigi's Mansion
- Place the newly created folder into the "games" folder on the USB.
- Place your genuine gamecube or Wii game into the Wii.
- Plug the USB into port 0 (the one closer to the SD card slot) and run one of the USB loaders.
ok cool thanks for the help man. do i need to format my usb first?
Yes, FAT32, cluster size 32kb.
