    I'm betting that's the problem, an SD card is an SD even if its in a USB adapter. You'll either have to use DML and plug the SD card into the Wii's built in SD port or find an actual USB device...

    I wish you had stated this sooner, then you wouldn't have had to make all those posts for help.

    Having a feeling scomeone would say that I did try Lite but it told me that "this game is on a usb" "do you want to copy the games to the sd" the last time I tried it timed out @ 30%

    Put the SD in the SD slot instead of the USB adapter and see if it still does that. Of course change the loader settings to suit DML as well.

    Also make sure your SD card has at least 1.5gb available (GC games are, if I remember right, 1.47gb so you'll want to have a little more so there's enough room)

    There is likely the problem, you used the default settings. Like cwjakesteel said change the settings to those recommended on the 1st page of this guide, the default settings do not point to the correct rom path nor do they specify any of the required info about which GC loader you're using (ie the settings won't know which version of DM your using)

(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 in GX has to be USB1. The games folder has to be in USB1 for DIOS MIOS to work:
    USB1/games/GAMEID/game.iso
    OH MY FREAKIN GOD!!! Thank you, thank you! I can't believe I overlooked that, I feel like such an idiot! I did exactly what you suggested and it works! This is fantastic, thank you!

    Just want to see what to suggest next


    In regards to your edit, that shouldn't be an issue as long as you set the cluster size to 32kb, but if possible it won't hurt to reformat.
    Thank your for your help as well. What you described is exactly what my problem was, but I overlooked the clusters on my partition....unfortunatly I'm sure I'm not the first one to overlook that! I feel dumb Thank you so much for your help!

    Thank you everyone!

    You sure aren't lmao, look at the first 15 or so pages, I was sure my HDD was incompatible but it turned out EASUS didn't make it 32kb even though I told it to. Had to copy 300gb of ripped DVD TV shows, movies, games and music, format the drive properly and copy it all back....longest 19hrs ever lol. Glad you got it working. I only neglected mentioning that part cause I thought it had been more heavily emphasized in the guide since way back when I did it.

    No problem
    In regards to using a real usb:
    I have SanDisk (4GB) I can just transfer the games
    Also I use Acronis Disk Director 11 Home from [abbreviated site name removed] would I still be able to change the cluster with that or does it have to be Advanced...

    Well, I used EASUS to partition my drive so it makes sense...I assumed everything was fine! Thanks again
