    Last night I followed the guide and everything worked great! I woke up this morning and put another game on the HDD and both games now give me a black screen. I tried deleting the second game as I knew the first worked fine, still a black screen. I read the first six pages of the thread to see if my issue came up and found nothing and as much as I would like to say that I read all 192 pages of the thread to find a solution I did not. Any help is greatly appreciated and I also appreciate this guide as my Wii disc drive is super loud and this has allowed me to play my GC games again without the annoyance of a loud drive.

    UPDATE: After much fiddling and doing the same things over and over...it worked again and works fine now...not sure what that was about but hurray, I can play games again.

    How do you change wbfs (unformatted) partition to logical? it doesnt give me any option to change it to logical when i right click the partition.I can only leave it as "Primary" and my only option was to set it "active". im using EaseUS Partition Mater Home Ed btw

    You cannot change a wbfs partition to logical, I did not know it was a wbfs partition.
    You could use wbfs2fat, it does not delete the wii games you will not lose any games, I use it and I did not lose any games and the wii games and HB stuff all work perfect after and it is very fast wbfs2fatpy. If you use wbfs2fat you will have to check your cluster size, sometimes its FAT32 with 64KB cluster size.

    Use Acronis Disk Director 11 Advanced to check: right click your disk/change cluster size/current cluster size:
    I use Acronis Disk Director 11 Advanced to check my hard drive cluster size and it was 64KB so I change it to 32KB and I did not lose any data and it is also very quick. I only recommend Acronis and wbfs2fat because no data loss if you use any other HDD program you will have to back up all data. You could leave it at 64KB if it is for wii games, only change it if you want to use it for GC games also. If you keep it at 64KB then you could change both partition to logical and then change the FAT32 with 32KB cluster to primary 1st plus active and then the other FAT32 with 64KB cluster partition to primary so the FAT32 with 32KB cluster is the 1st partition (USB1) and the other partition is 2nd partition (USB2). If you decide to merge two FAT32 partition together it may take a long time but one FAT32 partition HDD is recommended for the Wii, but is optional.
    Also delete the CFG file in GX app after.
    It's late over here will check back tomorrow.

    Us Problems Loading gamecube games on softmod wii

    I have used wiiflow, config usb loader and usb gx and i can't get gamecube games to load.
    I follow the instructions for wiiflow and it just launches the DVD drive it doesnt load wii or gamecube games.
    USB GX will load and play wii games but i cant see gamecube games. I have tried but some of the directions do not work as i do not have the option in my usb gx. Such as i can not change the USB port and there is no option for gamecube games in the custom directory.
    Dios mios 2.8 is installed.

    You are using an outdated version of USB loader GX, download r1209 and you will have all those options you say are missing now. Also you mod is a little old as well, you're cIOS 222, 223, 249 & 250 are all stubbed. Follow the soft mod any Wii guide in my signature and straighten out your soft mod before continuing with this guide.

    Ok did the guide. now wiiflow sees the gamecube games but when i click on play it just wants to save it to the SD card but it will not see the wii games which it did before.
    USB loader GX sees the wii games but not the gamecube games no matter what i try.

    So i am really at a loss now as to what is the issue. Thanks for the help.

    1.Is it absolutely important that I have a 32 cluster size on my HDD? SO much that GC games won't work?
    2.Would this make Wii games load better?

    3.How do I fix the cluster size, do I gotta backup and format my whole HDD? I formatted it with EASEUS before, but didn't know about choosing cluster size.
    I created a txt file as you said, the file size is 5 bytes, but 64 KB on disc.

    ​4.About backing up my data, is it unhealthy to load such a large amount of data to my PC hard drive, even if I'm going to delete it when I'm done? Or should I worry more about the work my external HDD has to do while backing up and restoring the files, making it hot?

    Yes it is from what i understand GC games will not load on anything other then 32K cluster. your cluster size is 64K according to your txt file.

    Sounds like you're using the outdated GX that came with the App Pack. That's fine for Wii games, but Dios Mios needs the latest beta. You can download it and other loaders that will work with DM 2.8 from links in my signature.

    1) Yes. It's not optional. It is a requirement.

    2) No, not really.

    3) There are programs that will convert to 32k clusters without a reformat, but I've never used one. Look through this thread and you should see it. I think it starts with an A. Worse case scenario, you can use Easeus to reformat (which will wipe the drive, do back things up first). Don't remove the partition and make a new one. That will default to 64k with no option to change. Choose Format, then you can set the cluster size.

    4) That's what hard drives are for. I upgraded my Wii hard drive from 256GB to 1.5TB and my Apple's external drive from 1TB to 3TB, both from being full. I connected both hard drives to a computer and let the data dump commence. It took hours to move that TB of data over, but it did it without a problem.

    If you have the room on another hard drive somewhere, I think it's better to back up the data and move it back when done vs. trying to rebuild the wheel, but that's your choice.
