    Yes use the latest DMToolBox 0.3 or higher.
    Read the bottom of this page for USB Loader GX 2 disc swapping, I did not try it with GX yet.

    It works! I'll try to explain it the best way I can. I'm using Resident Evil 4 in this example.

    1. Install disc 1 with DMToolbox 0.3 or higher. You should have a folder with a file named game.iso
    2. Install disc 2 with DMToolbox 0.3 or higher. You should have a folder with a file named disc2.iso
    3. Copy the disc2.iso file and paste it in the disc 1 folder. You should have something similar to this:

    paso3.jpg

    4. GX will load disc 1 by default and automatically load disc 2 when prompted.

    Hope this little guide works!

    (Sorry the picture is so small. If someone can tell me how to make it bigger, I'll do so right away).

    We still need to use DiscEX to get the right files/folder layout though, right? DMToolbox doesn't make a sys folder, which I was made to believe was required for things to run properly, and DMToolbox is a better version of GCMutility?

    Use R1205_IOS222-249-250.7z It has new HBC and latest DIOS MIOS 2 disc support or Use the latest DMToolBox (0.3 or higher) to install your two disc games.
    I did not use GX to install the 2 disc yet, so I'm not sure....
    Sorry for noobness... how / where do I install the files within that .rar file?

    Replace the boot.dol in your SD /apps/ usbloader_gx with the updated one(r1205_IOS249).

    New way is DMToolbox 0.3 or higher. Old way was DiscEX, you do not need the sys folder.

    Well I feel like a mook. So the compress function is the same thing as GCMutility's shrink mode then? I don't suppose there is any harm in running a game I've already run through DiscEX and GCMutility through DMToolbox so everything is up to snuff?

    Just ran GCM on something already compressed with DMToolbox and is shaved a little bit more off the top... but I'm not so sure that's a good thing.

    I always select RAW (1:1 copy) it's not compressed or extracted and it works perfect with DM 2.6 and all the latest USB Loaders.
    I do not use GCM because space is not an issue.

    I have issues with running GC games on CFG USB Loader. I've updated all ios's and the syscheck is fine. My USB HDD works for Wii games, is compatible and have worked for Wii games flawlessly the past 2 years.
    Now I wanted to add the GC from USB functionality and installed Dios Mios 2.2 (first tried 2.6). But after Dios Mios splash I get a black screen, my iso I'm using is md5'd correct down to the last digit and my USB loader is updated to the very latest version.
    I've run out of ideas of what to do to make this work.

    DarkSim,
    Verify that your HDD is using 32KB cluster size or less, use Acronis Disk Director 11 Advanced : right click your disk/change cluster size/current cluster size: I use Acronis Disk Director 11 Advanced on three HDD to change it from 64KB to 32KB and I did not lose any data. (I ONLY RECOMMEND ACRONIS BECAUSE NO DATA LOSS)If you use any other HDD program you will have to backup everything before you change the cluster size.
