is there a different program that's recommended? Devolution works pretty well and is my second option, but i haven't tried anything other than those two
Also I'm having trouble ripping my discs. This is because of the dios mios right? I'm a little confused because i thought I ruined 3 discs I just got a couple of days ago, but i coincidentally installed dios mios the day after.
i uninstalled dios mios and ssbm stopped freezing, but it the usb isn't recognized through usb loader (as far as i can tell) with it uninstalled lol
lmao, i have no idea what it is. i've tried multiple programs including cleanrip, but haven't had any luck :(
I use DM 2.10, but I think the actual ripping of the disks is separate from what you use.
If you have a current version of USB loaders GX or CFG, if you "Install" a GameCube disk using the same process that you would install a Wii disk, it will place it in the proper place on the hard drive and should work with whatever method of playing GameCube games you want.
If it fails, then the disk itself is likely bad.
Hi everybody. Just got and softmodded a Wii today, and although Wii games are working fine with my HDD, I'm getting nada in the way of gamecube action. I have managed to get Metal Gear Solid working from a Sandisk thumbdrive, but any attempts to get it working from the HDD just draw a black screen. Of course the obvious answer is a non compatible drive, but from the research I've done tonight other people have reported it working with Dios Mios. The model in question is a Samsung M3 portable: HX-M101TCB/G 1tb FAT32 in 32k clusters.
I just wondered if any of you enlightened folks could point me in the way of a possible fix or does it happen that the same model drive works for some people and not others?
Thanks in advance
Is your hard drive formatted as FAT32 with 32k clusters? Are you using the primary partition (not a secondary partition) and is it active and physical (vs. logical)?
Yep it's FAT 32 in 32k clusters. I think I would just accept it as one of those things if that model wasn't compatible. Isos are in their ownID folder within a games folder.
So you didn't run the isos through DMToolbox? Check out the guide again to see how that is done, to see if that helps.
Yes, I did run the iso through DMToolbox. It's frustrating as I can run stuff from a USB thumbdrive. I do understand that Dios Mios is "sensitive" to drive models, but as people have said that this model works for them. At the end of the day I can unplug the HDD and put the thumbdrive in, but it's a shame having a 1tb drive and not using it up!
Did you run all of the other checks that I asked for?
Ok this is what I've done:
Fomatted the HDD with EASEUS. FAT32 32k clusters. It is primary and physical.
The drive has 2 folders in the root directory: games and wbfs
I run the ISO through DMToolbox v0.3 and output into the games folder on the USB drive
The drive is plugged into the lower USB port (Wii is horizontal)
I have DIOS MIOS v2.10 on my Wii homescreen.
When I run Dios Mios it sees the games fine but when I select one I just get a black screen, not even the Dios Mios splash.
Hope that helps :)
