Neogamma Forwarder Channel
Neogamma is a backup launcher that is able to load Wii Game backups from DVD-Rs, SD(HC) Cards and USB Hard Drives. This forwarder channel loads it from the SD Card. The advantage of using a forwarder channel over a regular channel is that, it allows users to easily update their Neogamma.
This forwarder loads Neogamma from the following locations;
[spoiler=Read This Note About Disc Loading!]
Some Wii's made in mid-2009 and later have newer DVD Drives which prevent back-ups from loading from DVD-R which means. To test this, do the following
1. Launch Neogamma.
2. Eject and remove any discs you have in the DVD Drive.
3. Select Launch Game from DVD in Neogamma.
4. If you get an error about your DVD Drive being too new and most likely no DVD-R's, that means you have a D3-2 Drive or newer and CANNOT play Gamecube games! This doesn't mean you can't use Wii games at all, Wii games can still be loaded from a USB Hard Drive. Although, there are more better loaders to do this than Neogamma such as CFG USB Loader.

Neogamma Forwarder not working through USB
I load my Homebrew apps through USB. When I open the app through the forwarder on the Wii Menu, it redirects me back. Is there any solution for this? I can load Neogamma through HBC, but I can load USB Loader GX through the forwarder.
I can't install the forwarder wad through WiiMod 3.2. It doesn't detect the wad in the USB drive.
EDIT: A guy asked the same question here, but didn't get his answer.
EDIT 2: Problem solved. Just had to install the wad through USB. Wiimod 3.2 didn't work, so I downloaded Waninkoko's Wad Manager 1.7 and installed, choosing IOS236.
EDIT 3: The problem wasn't solved after all. I didn't know that the SD card was in it's slot when I installed the forwarder wad through Wad Manager 1.7. Is there any way to get the forwarder to load usb:/apps/neogamma/boot.dol instead of sd:/apps/neogamma/boot.dol? This is odd because the USB Loader GX forwarder loads the .dol-s from both USB and SD.
