Loading GC off usb is driving me crazy! Help!
So, I've followed the tutorials. I have (the the best of my knowledge) all the cIOS files I need to be installed, all the proper wad files, all the right apps in their spots. Wii games are able to load perfectly fine from all my loaders, but what really stumps me are those damn GC files! I've got everything converted and stored in the right spot, they play fine off an SD card but I'd really like them to work off my hard drive. It's really more of a convenience thing having all my eggs in one basket. When I attempt to make a custom path it's really weird because the contents of my sd card are listed as usb, and usb is sd! so attempting to correct things causes it to tell me "it has to be sd!" or some nonsense. Is it a config error? I could take pictures or something if that would help.
Funny thing is, it recognizes all my gc games. Gives me a menu option for them, they always show up. But all I get is a black screen, and if I tinker with the settings/ios/wad/diosmios I can get a bios screen to show up but it always has some sort of error message. Now I'm afraid I've got too much added to the system and it'd be impossible to get things working right at all! It's frustrating, and I know there are lots of other people with this problem too. It would really help if I knew what I'm doing right and what I'm doing wrong. I'd really appreciate some guidance. Thanks.
I recently installed d2x according to the tutorials, don't know if that makes a difference or not in the long run. I'm just tired of stressing over something that could potentially be solved in a matter of minutes.
