Ok, let me make sure I'm understanding this right. You tried IOS236 and 249 for the install of DIOS MIOS v2.0? It is the latest one correct, labeled as update 5 from the main site? And you've also tried both r1180 (should say under "credits" IOS249 + DIOS MIOS) r1193 mod02 for UBB Loader? You've made sure to set the main path for GC games to their correct location?Quote:

Yup I've done all of that. The only thing I could think of is if my partition isnt 32kb cluster on my usb (it is very possible it just isnt compatible like you said.. which would suck) so I might try checking to see if it is true 32 tomorrow. And no worries I appreciate the help you have given me. Ill keep you updated when i try the cluster on my hd on here if you want. Is there a hd compatibility list for this that i might be able to look at to make sure that is the problem or not?
edit: or is there another usb loader (other than usb loader gx) that is compatible with DIOS_MIOS that i could try out instead? I really want this to work and will try all the possibilities within reason haha
I don't think there's a HDD compatibility list, there's one for games but not HDDs sadly. I've only ever used USB Loader GX but I've read that CFG Loader and WiiFlow can use DIOS MIOS as well so you could look into those. And about your HDD not being 32kb clusters that is definitely a reason for it to not work. GC games require a FAT32 drive with 32kb clusters so double check and see if yours is set that way. If not, correct it and post back to let us all know if it works.Quote:

USB Loader GX r1193 mod02
DIOS_MIOS (update 5 or whatever) (installed in iOS 249)
I also went through the wii softmod guide and just did an update to all of my wads/iOS a couple days ago
and also installed the d2x ciOS v8-final
1) updated all of my wads/iOS through the softmod guide (also updated priiloader with the guide to 07 i think but i doubt its relevant)
2) installed the d2x cIOS v8-final wads (using iOS 236)
3) installed DIOS_MIOS update 5 (using iOS 249)
4) updated my already set up USB Loader GX r1180 with r1193 mod2 (which the dl is located on page 8 of this thread)
5) I used EaseUS Partition Master to format my usb partition to Fat32 32kb cluster and it worked like a charm after that. (i backed up my files before formatting and just copied them back over afterwards) THIS IS SUPER SUPER SUPER IMPORTANT i overlooked this because i thought "hell im sure it is 32kb" but it wasnt and everything above was set up but because it was 64 it kept asking to copy it to my sd.
other nice mentionables:
-My USB Loader GX has its GC folder set up correctly usb:/games (might be different location for others of course)
-I also used the DiscEX method in "scrubbing" my game
-I have a 1TB western digital my passport with 2 partitions (just incase someone has this and is having problems know there is hope) you dont need my exact partitions im sure
1) FAT32 32kb cluster (primary, active) 500gb
2) NTFS ? cluster (primary) 500gb
-I have a gamecube game in my wii disc drive (Burnout if youre curious)
-I have only tried it on Super Smash Bros. Melee and is working wonderfully
This is by no means a 100% guaranteed guide but hopefully something in here will help someone out. alsoooo i dont have a gamecube memory card so how exactly am i supposed to save the games haha. Is there a way around it or will i just have to go out and buy one? Thanks
edit: A wonderful realization is I have not gotten my system to run gc games off my hd. However this has made it work for playing gc games from a sd drive while storing them on my external hd. I just copied it over to the sd with usb loader gx and it at least works for now. If i find anything more ill add to this. BAH!!!
Did more testing this morning. The only version of DML/DM I can get to work is DMLr59 running games from the SD card. All versions of DML after r59 and DM 2.0+ hang with the splash screen and some garbage on the screen. I'm thinking the issue isn't with the USB since I'm seeing the same behavior of DML and DM before it even gets to loading a game.
Anyone else seeing this?
EDIT: Finally got it working on a Wii that does NOT have a SunDriver installed. I also reformatted the 4GB USB stick with EASEUS and runs games fine.
I thought the SunDriver would represent a disc to the Wii that is compatible with DIOS MIOS. Apparently not. I'm going to remove the SunDriver this afternoon and replace it with the original DVD drive and see if that works.
Try following the steps posted by duff0712 and see if that helps.Quote:

And SNES, Nintendo released a disc that would clean your wii's laser or disc reader sometime around when they released Brawl.
Also, I updated the guide with how to use Ocarina.
Also, I haven't been on this thread recently because I somehow got unsuscribed so I thought it was quiet until I decided to add how to use Ocarina.
