help getting GC backups running off USB
ok- first off- my hats off to all of the members of this forum. I am extremely impressed with the calibur of help that you are willing to lend. I did my homework over the last 48 hours, or so I thought, but I am no further than when I started. I have recently softmodded my Wii and my current endevour is to get GC backups running. There aren't many games I want to play, but mainly I want to run Star Wars rouge squadron II, and III. I did as suggested and read all 174 pages of this thread. Everytime I would glean a piece of information I would try it, to no success. I will try to explain briefly what I have done and if anyone can help me get my GC games running off USB I would be forever greatful. so- here goes: I softmodded my Wii using letterbomb. I then have a toshiba 500 gb hard drive that I am using only for the Wii. I unfortunately formated it to WBFS before I found this amzaing forum. I had all of my Wii games on the drive running flawless. I then decided to tackle the GC backups- so I used WBFS2FAT32 to convert my drive to FAT32. I have verified that it is 32KB as well. I originally had an older version of usbGX on, so I have updated that to USBgx 3.0 1205. I have tried DM anywhere from 2.2 all the way to 2.6. I have my GC backup games on USB1/games/gamename/game.iso . I can see the games in the gx loader and when i open it it goes straight to black screen and freezes. I read the post about using a current version of wiiflow- so I updated that and too my suprise i saw the DM splash screen for the first time and it loaded the GC game rebel squadron III. I was so excited I thought I was there, but when I tried any other loader it didnt work. And then I realized that I had the retail game in the Wii. I took the game out and tried again, black screen, no DM splash. I have never seen the DM splash since. I have stayed up until 5am in the morning for the last 2 days, reading this thread and trying everything I can think of. I want to give up but seeing how much everyone here is committed to the success of everyone else, I thought I would post my last desperate cry for help. So anything you can do to get me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated.
