    This is more accurate. I went bonkers formatting it over and over with 7 different tools with a 32kb cluster size and it kept reporting the file was 64kb size on disk. it's more accurate if you do the command line test in windows using chkdsk method.

    Run CMD as Administrator in Windows to get a command prompt.

    Change the drive letter to the partition you are trying to check.

    Type chkdsk and hit enter

    Once you finish check the "bytes in each allocation unit" line near the very bottom.
    That is accurate.

    I'm going to test this out now that I have finished the tutorial.
    That method was already mentioned in the guide by llaffer, let me know the results and I also thanked llaffer for it and I was always aware of that method and it should be added to the guide the more ways you could check the cluster size the better.

    Look for the line near the bottom of the output stating "bytes in each allocation unit". It should read 32,768.

    DIOS MIOS not working

    I seem to also be having an issue getting Dios Mios to run. I just recently ran ModMII to ensure my already softmodded Wii had the latest updates. I own a WD 250GB USB Passport drive. It has only one partition, Fat32, and I have tested using a notepad file to make sure it is infact 32k cluster size. I have updated my USB LoaderGX to r1209. It lets me rip my GC Original discs with no issues. However when I go to play them (Remake Resident Evil and Super Smash Bros Melee) it just gives me a black screen (I have not yet seen the Dios Mios Splash screen). While I have not yet found anyone posting my exact harddrive model, I have found a few other passport drive users stating they have no issues. Further more, once I have installed Dios Mios using MMM v13.4 I find I am no longer able to load from the original retail discs (not just attemping to load from the HD). I originally tried Dios Mios v2.8, but have since tried a few of the previous v2.x versions and none will let me load from the retail discs. I have to install the cMIOS back to fix support.

    Edit: (SysCheck v1.6.2 kept crashing, updated to v2.1 and now am able to list my SysCheck)

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks

    Developers, I appreciate your freeware, but can you please move your files off the host "uploaded.net" and maybe host them on "wiihacks"? Uploaded.net will only let you download a single file every 180 minutes wether the download completes or not; extremely frustrating when one goes and stuffs that up.

    thea1ien,
    No DIOS MIOS splash screen, chances are high that your USB HDD isn't supported, try another USB HDD or USB flash drive.
    Wad Manager 1.7 is recommended to install DM wad with IOS236.
    If the drive partition table is GPT and not MBR it will not work with DIOS MIOS.
    Google how to convert GPT into MBR if your drive partition table is GPT.
    http://www.sevenforu...k-mbr-disk.html
    Convert GPT disk to MBR disk with free partition manager, Windows Disk Management and Diskpart command.

    Crediar changed DM downloads to an external host, and I do not think anyone is allow to re-host it.

    Well, I just checked. The drive is MBR. Of course that doesn't mean it's supported either. I did later mess with Devolution and it seems to work fine. I still wouldn't mind toying with Dios Mios however, if nothing else, to help provide feedback to the community. What I'm curious about however. Even if the drive was or wasn't compatible...with Dios Mios installed should I not be able to pop in the retail GC discs and play them? Because no matter which version I tried, it seemed to break that.
    I'll reinstall 2.8 using Wad Manager 1.7 to see if that makes any difference.

    I am not sure what I am doing wrong here. but every time I try and launch a gamecube game it keeps insisting on copying game to SD card. I followed the instructions for USB Loader gx.

    Is it supposed to copy to SD card? If not can someone tell me what I did wrong or how to fix it?

    I had that issue earlier. Make sure you have one of the newer beta version of USBLoaderGX such as r1209. If you get the latest available from the USB LoaderGX site it still only supports loading from SD card and not USB. Also make sure you installed DM (DiosMios) and not DML (DiosMios Lite). But I am willing to bet your version of USBLoaderGX is the issue.

    Links to the version of GX that will work with DM are in my signature.

    What you found was the last official 3.0 release. Anything after that is beta, and developed by a different team.

    Ok, well I retried installing DiosMios 2.8 using Wad Manager 1.7 with IOS236. Still I no longer am able to play retail GC discs after it's been installed. I tried both with and without the usb harddrive attached as well, to see if it might do anything.
