    I just Modded my Wii with the "Softmod any Wii"
    and would like to do the Mios Dios V2 and I have a couple of questions:

    - is it safe to do after this mod?
    and

    - is there a detailed guide on Mios Dios V2?

    Thanks in advance

    I've been reluctant to try this after reading all the posts of people having retail disc play broke, but apparently that bug has been fixed so I'll have to try this. I will post back any troubles I have so I may hopefully get a solution. It funny, a year or 2 ago everyone in the Wii Homebrew community was saying a USB Loader for GC games would never work and yet here we are now lol. Makes my life easier since I no longer have to worry about scratching my discs (namely Zelda Wind Waker)

    Ok, wtf is wrong here. Do I need Dios Mios installed before I can even rip a GC game? I'm using my retail copy of Dragon Ball Z Budokai and getting disc read errors...could it be because I haven't yet installed DIOS MIOS? My disc isn't that badly scratched....

    Edit: Ok so I tried a back up copy of The Simpsons Hit & Run and that installed but non of my actual retail discs are installing

    Also is there a way to make the GC games load directly off USB with USB Loader GX? It takes sooooo long to copy to the SD every time.

    Did any of you even read the guide? @SNES_Master @zusfrid

    It's at the first page of this thread.

    And @PhineasT, the proper settings requirements are also on the first page.

    So the new DIOS MIOS doesn't break retail compatability anymore? Can you confirm that? I'll add that to the guide. Thanks.

    I downloaded the newest revision three hours after it was posted, installed the wad, and proceeded to get black screen for all the games I tried to load from USB (presumably because of 64kb clusters - have yet to test this theory). However, it ran a retail disc of Toadstool Tour perfectly, DM boot screen and all.

    @cwjakesteel... I followed the guide (except for having a retail disc since because I have the sundrive I can only use a backup of my Metroid Prime GC disk that I have).

    DML r59 works perfectly. Anything after that fails. Do you see something obvious I'm missing?

    EVERYTHING works. Wii games work. GC games from the SD card. USB Loader GX copies games from the FAT32 partition and they run fine. Even running the gamecube game from the Sundrive works.

    If I install any other version of DML or DM 2.0 I get the splash screen and it hangs.

    So I know the hard drive is good, the game isos are good... anyone have an idea? I'd really like to run GC games off of the USB drive.

    Phineas
    Wow, you responded fast. I was still responding to your previous message.

    So, you cannot have both DML and DIOS MIOS at the same time. You can only run GC games from the USB with DIOS MIOS and not DML. What is this Sundrive you are talking about that you can only use a disc image?

    How do you know that your hard drive is good (compatible) if it doesn't play the games? Why don't you put a retail disc in the drive to see if that makes it work?

    @Itrain23, your USB must​ be cluster size 32kb (and also primary active and first).

    What are you talking about? That is what DIOS MIOS is for. You don't have to copy it to the SD every time. DIOS MIOS lets you play the games directly from the USB.

    Also, Guys, I've been talking to you all from using update 3 of DIOS MIOS. I'll update to DIOS MIOS 5 now and see if anything game breaking happens. I'm trying to respond to all of you guys as quickly as possible.

    Make sure the version you are using is the modded version.

    The warning is about unnecessary now. I think I can remove it. The new DIOS MIOS restores retail disc play.

    I installed DIOS MIOS V2, Ripped a GC disc via USB Loader GX, loaded it up and was told the game had to be transferred to the SD card. I went back and rechecked the guide, I set my settings as is recommended, made sure I installed the DM wad correctly and still was told I must transfer the game. Tried multiple settings and games and none could get past the splash screen. I think it's a problem with my MIOS as none of my retail discs have been reading.

    When you rip the GC game, you rip it TO the USB? And then afterwards it asks you to copy to the SD?
