    I know I keep repeating myself, but that issue is common with FAT32 with 64KB cluster size. 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.
    The Main GameCube Path has to be USB1. The games folder has to be in USB1 for DIOS MIOS to work:
    USB1/games/GAMEID/game.iso
    Also make sure you are using the latest Wiiflow v4.1 and channel forwarder. Also try different GC games and use DMToolbox 0.3 or higher to install the game.

    Cannot get Dios Mios to work; repeated "apploader" errors.

    I recently re-modded my Wii, following the instructions in the "Softmod Any Wii" guide, and it went wonderfully, with everything installing and working as I hoped it to. I can play Wii games without a problem via USB. The reason I even re-modded, though, was because my little brother wants to be able to play again some of the Gamecube games we had ages ago but don't work anymore or have been lost. So I tried to install Dios Mios Lite, as per the instructions in its respective guide.

    Here's where I started running into issues.

    I followed the instructions and put Luigi's Mansion on the SD card, in its proper directory and everything. The guide I followed linked to DML 2.2, I believe (though as I understand it there is a 2.6), and my USB Launcher GX is 3.0, if that helps any. The channel icon for Luigi's Mansion appears fine, and I tried to click it and press start. The Dios Mios logo, as well as the GameCube logo, both appear, but then are followed by a rather disheartening error of some sort. I've obtained 3 such errors so far; the one currently splashed across my screen says "Fatal error apploader size is zero!". There is a retail disc in the tray at the moment, Twilight Princess. I tried without a disc in as well, I got a different error that I don't remember.

    I haven't tried updating DML to 2.6, but I did download and install regular Dios Mios 2.6 and uninstalled DML 2.2. For the record, I don't remember which IOS it was that I used, if that matters.

    After installing DM 2.6, I put Luigi's Mansion and Metroid Prime on my USB hard drive, plugged it into the lower slot, booted up USB Launcher GX. Luigi's Mansion and Metroid Prime are still channels, but when I click them it tells me that the games are on the USB and it asks me if I want to move them to the SD card or not. The other options are "Cancel" and "View SD Card", or perhaps it's "Delete SD Card", one of the two. There is no option to play from USB, which, as I understand, is the entire point of regular DM.

    I'm no expert with this kind of stuff, I'll be honest. But it's frustrating to know that I can follow instructions to the letter and still wind up hopelessly wrong and not know where I went astray.

    Any help would be appreciated! I've been up all night trying to do this for my brother and I'm going to get some sleep for now.

    Update GX to R1205_IOS222-249-250.7z. The latest GX is in the bottom of this page USB Loader GX, replace the boot.dol in your SD /apps/ usbloader_gx with the updated one ( r1205_IOS249) and update your GX channel with USB Loader GX -UNEO_Forwarder Channel 5_1_AHBPROT.wad and remove the old cfg file in the GX app if you are still having issues.

    If you are still having issues v
    erify 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.

    Hey guys. I upgraded to USB Loader GX r1207 and it works perfectly.

    I also tried Wiiflow 4.0.1 and that worked perfectly (or was it 4.1?)

    The default settings for USB Loader GX are already perfect for the game. Except the PAD HOOK is set to OFF. Also, the only problem I found was that DIOS MIOS did not run if you had a gamecube disc in it.

    Also, I tried MGS Twin Snakes and disc switched worked flawlessly which I was really happy about.

    In the guide, I'll only mention those two loaders. But I'm really happy the default settings work, but I'll list them in the guide anyways.


    EDIT: Also I don't have experience with forwarders since I run everything from the Homebrew Channel. Forwarders need to MATCH with the loader, correct?

    Yes, they do. There is also the option of creating ones own forwarder.


    Edit: to clarify as long as the forwarder points to the proper location (such as SD/apps/usbloadergx) it will work. It gets is own unique channel ID so Shop Channel DLs can't overwrite it.

    Also, I just updated the guide a while ago. Everything should be fixed and updated for the new stuff. I just need to put the exact settings for USB Loader GX, Wiiflow and CFG Loader.

    Do you know where I can find the changelog for DM 2.6?

    Someone posted it a few pages back. Not sure where they got it but I did see it, I think all it really added was disc swapping.

    Okay, cause what I really wanted to find was that Pad Hook for Screen shotting, and to see if the "NO DISC" issue was resolved. so that there's absolutely no need to use the No disc+ setting or to put in a gamecube disc.

    Edit: I found it on their google code page.

    Also, did you get your Wii's disc reader working? Cause I remember from before that you had a problem ripping GC games because of your dirty disc reader.


    Edit 2: Ah, Now I remember what I wanted to ask you. What was the alternative method to ripping GC games? I mean, other than USB Loader GX.

    Yup, couple months ago I got it fixed. It was a piece of metal that was sagging against the arm that spins the discs so I had to replace the whole drive. Now my Wii is like brand new (but I got the Wii U too so maybe that was a waste lol). Anyway, it would have been cheaper to do it myself but I didn't want to go through the hassle so I paid a local game shop.

    CleanRip it is my preferred method for a few reasons.
