Hello, and thank you for this helpful FAQ!
I've formatted my compatible USB drive correctly, updated all IOSs I was meant to, and am using the latest versions of the loader software (Dios Mios Booter, USB Loader GX, and Wiiflow). Everything seems to be working great until I want to actually play one of my backup GC titles (stored on USB). In all of the apps I am able to see the games as selectable, but when I start them up I just get a black screen. This occurs with and without a disc inserted.
Via USB Loader GX, I have tried the SD feature. It successfully puts the game in a 'games' folder on my SD card but still does not launch it. Black screen again.
I have Dios Mios 2.2 installed. I'd like to actually get as far as to see the Dios Mios boot screen but I've been at this for hours and my vision's getting so blurred I probably wouldn't see it anyway =)
Have I missed something? Both SD card and USB drive have the proper 'games' folder.
Thank you so much!
Hi, and thank you for your reply! Yep, one partition. Fat32 with the proper size clusters.
Have you try DIOS MIOS 2.1 with all three USB loaders ? Some games are not compatible so try different games and check the USBloader settings. The games will not work from SD with DIOS MIOS only DIOS MIOS Lite. IF USB Loader GX ask to install to SD, you do not have the newest USB loader GX
I have USB Loader GX v3.0 r1198
DIOS MIOS Booter r30
cfg 70 r36
so if you do not have the newest usb loader just use DIOS MIOS 2.1 or 2.0 wad
new usb loader update links are in previous post

Well I got the Wii back, re-hacked it and tested ripping a GC game...still nothing. So my issue is not the laser or the softmod (super confused). But thankfully we now have programs like Devolution and Dios Mios to fill the gap of not being able to load my retail GC discs
Hopefully the next update brings in audio streaming so the sound on Naruto Clash of Ninja 1&2 works.

WHAAT?!? You got your Wii back and STILL no retail playability? Are you willing to buy a new DVD drive for your computer that spins backwards? Wii and GC games don't have encryption like PS3 games. They are burned backwards on the disk (i.e. counterclockwise instead of clockwise). So you can actually rip it straight to your computer that way.
Yup, Wii games will read but GC game won'tOriginally Posted by cwjakesteel
I'm gonna probably try to hunt down a compatible disc drive for my comp, would a laptop be able to use one?

It seems mostly older DVD-Roms only. DVD writers not so much... *edit: Ripped off another site.
