    He's already using 2.6.1+ it just isn't working for some reason.

If it consumes 64KB (65536 bytes) the cluster size is 64KB
    This might be easier for those who know how to use Windows command window: With your USB drive mounted in Windows, open a command window and go to the USB drive, then type in "chkdsk".

    Look for the line near the bottom of the output stating "bytes in each allocation unit". It should read 32,768.

    I GOT IT!!!!
    What I had to was go back to the Softmod Any Wii Guide to get the original apps THEN update those packs also to start from scratch [lost backup on computer]
    Also I can confirm the CFG does work [if updated to the newest version] [still need a disc in the wii, but it WORKS]
    The problem was with my external HDD [internal power issues, switched to micro SD and card reader]

    These are the apps that I have and their verison:
    GX 3.0 r1207
    CFG [I don't remember the verison]
    Wiiflow - same from the app pack
    etc.

    You are using DIOS MIOS Lite 2.6 for SD not DIOS MIOS 2.6 for USB. Lite is a lot easier to setup, happy you got it working.

    So the problem was your external HDD, but it still only worked for you with the disc in? Strange. Huh. Starting up CFG Loader, it should tell you the version.

    And Candylove, sorry for my fatal error of putting 4KB instead of 32KB.

    Edit: (missed candylove's above post while typing)

    So he was using Lite and that was the problem?

    Once the guide is fully updated, I expect to see less activity on this thread, (not that I want less activity), but because all the problems should be addressed there.
    I can't tell from my iPhone but if you haven't specified in the 1st post you should add that when updating the loaders deletion of config file may be necessary to make everything function correctly.

    Hello everyone!
    I hope you're doing good. I'm not sure this is the place to post about my problem, but I am so frustrated I am about to go crazy!
    I re-softmodded my wii yesterday to make sure I could play my GameCube backups from my USB hard drive. This is what I use:

    USB Loader GX Version 3.0 r1180 (I use it on IOS249)
    Dios Mios V 2.6.1
    Fat 32, 32kb cluster drive, partition primary and active.

    The loader can see my games, no problem. But when I try to launch one, it freezes on the Dios Mios splash screen. I really don't know what I'm doing wrong!! I've been searching for 2 days and I can't get it to work. At first, I thought the games were the problem because I've been using "compressed" files. So I used DMTools to transfer my files on my hard drive again, this time making sure they were not compressed. The same thing happens.

    I don't know if it means anything, but I installed Dios Mios Lite a long time ago, but I read I could just install Dios Mios 2.6.1.wad and it would erase the previous version. Is that right? I ran a syscheck on my Wii, in case it helps:

    Spoiler



    Any help would be greatly appreciated. If there is anything I can do, if you need more information, please, just ask.

    Thank you very much!

    @AmyRosie: DL the latest USB Loader GX (r1207) on page 1 of this thread

    Also updating your forwarder may be necessary as well (if you use a forwarder, if you launch via HBC then don't worry about that)
