    An SD Gecko is a little adapter that lets you plug an SD card into the Gamecube memory card slot. The IDE adaptor allows you to plug a desktop size, old school hard drive into the GC memory card slot. (You need an external power supply for this).

    Hi,
    I know you need a GameCube memory card for saving GameCube saves but do you also need it with this? Or does it save the game saves to a SD card or something?

    Thanks

    You still need a GC memory card for saves. You also need a retail game disc to boot your backup (any game will do).

    Nope. You will still need GC memory cards if you want to save. The Gecko is only used to store the actual program and your ISOs or GCMs. I keep my Gecko in slot B and a memory card in slot A while running Swiss.

    Ah, right. I was confused at first because you needed the GameCube memory card slot for the Gecko adaptor, but then I discovered there were 2 GameCube memory cards slots lol.

    Sorry for the stupid question...

    Thanks Cile. I'll add it to the guide when I get home. I also have to update to the most recent rev, link the most recent download pack I put together, and do a little touch up here and there.

    I'll have to add your results soon to my list soon. I have some updating to do. I did update the guide not too long ago to include the most recent rev of Swiss, updated the download pack, and a few other things even though it's not in my change log. I've had a lot going on IRL recently but I'm almost back to normal duty on here.
