    Thanks. I'll put that if DMToolBox is not working, that's what you ought to do, in the guide.

    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.
    Just saw your post, did not read all the recent post yet, will check back in 2 hrs, very busy.

    OK- so I think I give- I can run Dios Mios Lite with an SD card just fine. I cant with my hard drive. I even re-formatted my hard drive last night with Acronis just to be sure that I was fat 32 with 32kb cluster size. 1 partition, active and primary- put just my GC games on it in the path of games/gamename/game.iso, reinstalled DM 2.6, latest updates for usb loader gx, wiiflow, and usb loader, still black screen, no DM splash screen. I guess my hard drive just isnt compatible to play GC games.... agree?

    You could try using our recommended formatting tool (in the FAT32 guide). But other than that, not much to try I don't think.

    I'm very curious about what makes a drive incompatible. Does anyone know why one drive will work over another? I know I've asked this before but it just seems so arbitrary that one brainless chunk of digital storage will work and another just won't.

    Goathouse, what's more interesting is how you can make a program "more compatible" for USBs. For example, DM isn't compatible will them all, but it can be upgraded to be more compatible (I assume). So what's it about the USB? And why are USB drives different enough from each other for the difference to matter?

    If the drive partition table is GPT and not MBR it will not work with DIOS MIOS.
    Google how to convert GPT into MBR
    http://www.sevenforu...k-mbr-disk.html
    Convert GPT disk to MBR disk with free partition manager, Windows Disk Management and Diskpart command.

    That's very good information! It didn't solve my problem but that should still be in the guide.

    I'm still getting the DM splash followed by black oblivion with the drive I'm working with. Any other morsels like this I should be aware of?

    If you are getting the DM splash screen your USB HDD should be compatible, did you use Wad Manager 1.7 to install DM with IOS236 ?

    FAQ,game issues

    You're giving me hope.

    I've never had issues with my disc drive and I'm ripping my games with it...

    I've tried DM with two different Western Digital usb drives that both work for Wii games. With both drives I get the splash screen but then black screen.

    Everything is working fine with the thumb drive I'm using.

    Edit: I'm pretty sure I installed DM in 236 -- I just followed the guide, pretty much.

    Edit: I didn't use Wad Manager. I used the other one.

    Are you getting the DM splash screen with no disc in the disc drive ? And the main GameCube Path is USB1 ?
    Re-install DM2.6 with Wad Manager 1.7 with IOS236. I really want you to use Wad Manager 1.7.
    Sometimes DM could have issues when you do not use Wad Manager 1.7 to install it, this is why it may work with the thumb drive but not the WD USB drives.
