    @jebug:

    Please don't encourage deviations from the guide. While it may seemingly have worked for you, this is not what the guide says. The guides are written with specific instructions for a reason; your experience with it may be interpreted as a go-ahead by someone to do so --- not recommended. Regardless, thanks for the feedback.

    If I use the soft reset button combo of x, b and start my system just seems to hang (everything else with Dios is fine). Is there a setting I am missing in the loader?

    Set GC Pad Hook to ON in the USB Loaders Settings or GC game Settings
    R, Z, Start: reboot Wii
    R, Z, down d-pad, B: Shutdown Wii

    Hello people,

    For the life of me, I can't get Dios Mios to work. My external HDD is fat32 with 32 clusters and plays my Wii games just fine.
    I've installed the DM v2.10 wad using IOS236 and IOS249 (deleting one before installing the other) and used Wiiflow v4.1.
    Wiiflow recognizes my Gamecube games but after booting the screen turns black, with no DM splash screen whatsoever.

    Ideas and suggestions are welcome!

    Have you tried a different USB device? Just because the hard drive works for Wii games doesn't mean it will for GameCube games.

    Is the FAT32 partition the first, physical, active partition (not logical?)

    I might have an old external HDD but it's ntfs. Might create a FAT32 partition to try it out. I figured the drive I'm using works because Wiiflow recognizes my gamecube games.

    It's the first active partition, I split the drive into FAT32 and ntfs and the first partition is the FAT32 one.

    Wiiflow seeing the game doesn't mean the hard drive is compatible. The actual launching of the game is proof (or non-proof) of that.

    See if you have an extra thumb drive lying around you can use as a test, but I would recommend that anything you use be FAT32 and the ONLY partition on the drive. The more you split the drive the more difficult things will work with the Wii.

    Aaah thanks, makes sense. I will take your advice into account! The external HDD I thought I had doesn't work, sadly. Don't have any thumb drives around.
    Is there a list of external HDD's that are guaranteed to play Wii & Gamecube iso's? That way I can buy one to use on the Wii only.

    This thread shows known hard drives to work (or not work) with the Wii in terms of Wii games and gamecube games if they've been tested:

    This is the hard drive that I use for my Wii, which does work for gamecube games: http://url.llaffer.com/wiihd

    My late reply. First recheck your cluster size with the method at the bottom of the guide. Check to see if the GameCube game partition is USB1 in Wiiflow, after you select GameCube, select settings, game partition USB1. DIOS MIOS will only work if GameCube games are in USB1 (1st partition) in Wiiflow and GX, and in CFG Loader it's FAT1 (1st partition). Also delete the CFG files in Willflow or GX.
    This is from my previous post 07-23-2012 :
    "In the past I use wbfs2fat, it change the hard drive to FAT32 with 64KB cluster size, I use Acronis to change the cluster size to 32KB cluster size with NO DATA LOSS . I also had a NTFS drive which work perfect with Wii backups but not GC backups so I made a FAT32 partition, but it was partition 2 (USB2), so to change it to partition 1, I had to change both partition to logical and then change the FAT32 to primary 1st plus active and then the NTFS to primary so the FAT32 was 1st partition (USB1) and the NTFS was 2nd partition (USB2) "
    If no splash screen appears at all, your HDD (usually the USB controller device is at fault not the HDD itself)
