At the bottom of the screen between "OK" and "Cancel" is "sd:\" click on that and it will change to "USB:\"
If that doesn't work maybe you have the wrong port set for the USB.
What is this "different way" you are talking about?
That is what is weird, where i am supposed to change it to "USB:\" there is not that option. It wont let me choose my USB (as seen in this picture: http://i.imgur.com/SFs4c.jpg), but it will let me boot Wii games off it (the USB) so i know it is still working.

I have never seen that splash screen before http://i.imgur.com/Vjg1L.jpg. That does not look like the one for DIOS MIOS. It is possible that you are using the old version of USB Loader GX. They did not post the newest version on their website, but rather on a mediafire link. Info I got from loanstar744.
It is posted in the guide on the first page but here it is: USB Loader GX mod 02
Just copy and paste the boot.dol into the loader_gx folder in your apps. Let it overwrite the original one.
Also, thanks for taking pictures of it so I can see more clearly what was wrong.
Thank you for trying to hep me (a noob at this) out.
I did just download the USB Loader you linked and it still got frozen at the same screen. I do not believe i screwed up anywhere on the first 5 steps you posted on the first page.
I also believe i did the second set of steps up to 3 correctly, but I put the game that i got (Super smash bros melee (GALE01) into the games folder into my USB and it just wont find it on the wii. I tried with a 8GB Kingston and a 32GB Lexar, both did not work.
I do not really know what I am doing wrong haha, maybe i need a different game in the drive?
What I do is:
1. go into homebrew channel
2. select USB Loader (the one you gave me)
3. I try to make the main GC path the "USB:\" but it will not give me that option. So i put the game i want in the SD to try it
4. Select Super smash bros melee
5. freezes on previously posted screen
You can have either dm or dml....not both. If you installed dios mios 2.0 you can only do usb. Make sure the game folder is setup correctly:
My USB is my problem then. Because I cannot make that directory when I USB loader. For some reason my USB's not being seen. (it is FAT32, 32Kb)

All of the games I have tried so far hang up at either the Dios Mios boot screen or at a black screen immediately after. I have tried USB loader GX V3 and CFG USB v70r36 with the same results. All the games I have tried are listed as compatible (Mario Party 4, Double Dash, Toadstool Tour, Timesplitters 2) and were ripped using the recommended settings from this thread. Any thoughts?
On the bright side, the newest version 2.0 release of DM on the Google Code page fixes booting from the disc, so I can play the hard copies until my issues are resolved.

Yes I did check the compatibility list, Super Smash Bros Melee checks in good.

Sorry if I am not explaining this properly and I would like to thank you guys for helping me out :D.
EDIT1: I'll make a video just showing you the process I go through

Ok, so here's my dilemma...
I have a Wii with 4.1U. Priiloader 0.7, all updated cIOSes and d2x.
I also have a SunDrive installed with 100GB drive with an original gamecube image selected.
I have a WD 2TB with a primary active fat32 partition formatted with 32k, and a second NTFS partiition
USB Loader GX 3.0 latest rev installed
DML r59 installed.
EVERYTHING works. Wii games work. GC games from the SD card. USB Loader GX copies games from the FAT32 partition and they run fine. Even running the gamecube game from the Sundrive works.
If I install any other version of DML or DM 2.0 I get the splash screen and it hangs.
I used the DIOS-MIOS Booter to test other versions of DML and DM and the same thing... hangs at the splash screen.
So I know the hard drive is good, the game isos are good... anyone have an idea? I'd really like to run GC games off of the USB drive.
