I will look over your past comments and see if I can't figure out what's causing the problem. I'll post back later.Originally Posted by Matt23488
If you select GC Games and Wii Games it should display you GC and Wii Games at the same time.Originally Posted by cordell092791
I got it, some how I managed to miss a crucial step after reading over and over what to do, I forgot to put .iso at the end of the game name, thanks alot you were very helpful
Hey thanks for the guide really useful,
got a question or more like a question of if this will ever be looked at but what do you do if you only have a back up of the games but the wii you have is newer so doesnt read images??
I have a red wii and all works fine except I only ever kept ONE gamecube game while I sold the others but made sure to make a backup image of them.....sad to say these dont get read by my wii as the ''dvd drive is too new''
sorry if this sounds like im ''chatting rubbish'' but I really dont want to go out and hunt down a copy of mgs twin snakes when I have it sitting on my hdd...
If you don't have your retail discs then you won't be able to play the games via Devolution.
If you do have the discs and your drive is somehow too new to read GC games you could use a friends Wii (as long as its soft modded) to verify the games. Make sure you use your USB device for the verification.
ahhh so the verification is only for the disc onto the hdd, no idea why maybe its late in the night I was thinking it would be tied to the machine somewhat,
thank you for the info
So, I've been trying to follow this guide as closely as possible but can't seem to get anything to work even when starting completely over multiple times.
First off, I don't see any any link to a Devolution download here in the guide or in your attachments so I picked it up elsewhere. (have tried r159 straight from Tudeij's Public Release page as well as found/tried r160 loader.bin found elsewhere) I have formatted my USB drive to FAT32 36kb cluster size. Using cleanrip with redump so far hasn't worked, as I get a non verified result every time even though my dump info matches what it should be (But this may be a whole different topic entirely).
I have put the loader.bin from devo file into my usb_loader gx folder in apps (I believe this is what I am supposed to do but there isn't any specific instructions). The weird thing is, when I go into usb loader gx settings there is none of the options that should be there (no Gamecube Mode, Memcard emulation, or devo loader path) When I check the credits, there is no devolution information at all, and for usb loader gx it doesn't show my revision number (should be r1209) most of the time, instead it shows v3.0. HOWEVER, (this is even more strange) I have gotten the correct revision number to show and most of the devolution options (gamecube mode etc) then show up. But I have only seen this once or twice in all my attempts, and when I reboot it doesn't show up again. Does anyone have any ideas of what to do? Am I doing something wrong, or should I try and see if something like DIOS MIOS would work instead? Any help would be very appreciated! (sorry for the long post as well)

Start with the Devolution sample loader - it's much simpler to get working. All you have to do is put the sample loader in the normal "apps" folder and put your GameCube ISOs in a folder called "games" at the root of your USB drive or SD card (root = is not in any folder, AKA "SD:\Games").
If you can get that working, then we can deal with your USB Loader GX issues.
Note that even if CleanRip says your rip isn't not verified, it should still work (assuming your disc isn't damaged). I myself get this exact message from CleanRip but Devolution works just fine.

I see a few issues, they may be typos so I'll ask you to clarify some facts.Originally Posted by jzlantz
1) You say your HDD is FAT32 with 36kb clusters? Are you certain of this? If so reformat it with 32kb clusters.
2) Are you clicking on the spoiler for the section you're trying to complete? If you're looking to do the guide with USB Loader GX download the attachment on page one and click the spoiler just beneath it to see detailed instructions on what to do to get it set up.
3) It sounds like you don't have a up to date build for USB GX, if you get the one from my attachment you will have r1209. Are you positive you have r1209? It's also possible that perhaps there is a cIOS issue going on, in which case I ask you to post a syscheck here so it can be looked at and ruled out.
4) The thing about CleanRip not verifying your dump isn't an issue. It has never verified a single dump for me but all my game ISOs work just fine. The issue could be your system mod or your HDD.
Last thing I need to ask is if your Wii is soft modded or hard modded (ie has a mod chip)?

Well, I'm making progress at least thanks to you two! =). And btw Yes, the 36kb was a typo, my HDD is formatted FAT32 32kb clusters
Here's some things I've figured out:
I've gotten the devo sample loader itself to work just fine. One question about that though is when I start a game and don't have a memory card it asks me to reformat the card in slot A. Is it okay to say yes to this? I wasn't sure whether the emulated memory part worked without usb gx or some other loader options being tinkered with.
I figured out the USB gx issue... on my main wii menu the usb gx is not up to date, but the one in the homebrew channel is. That was why I occasionally seeing the version or not. I will try and see how to move the correct usb gx to the wii menu to make it more convenient.
I still haven't quite gotten the devo usb gx combo to work out yet though. The gamecube game that I have ripped doesn't seem to show up in my list of games in usb gx yet so I can't test to see if its working. (yes i've followed the spoiler and checked the all the correct settings including the select loader mode: GC Games)
Just in case, here's the system check you asked for:

Yes, it's ok to format the memory card in slot A. The reason it asks that when first using emulated memory is because it needs to generate the memcard.bin file and in order to do that it needs to "format" this memory card. Don't worry, all your files will be safe, it only effects memcard.bin.
The thing about your USB GX, what you just described sounds like you might have an outdated forwarder, I'll provide a link to the latest one when I get a chance. Or if you want to find it yourself (might be faster) just look on google for UNEO FORWARDER 5.1, I'm sure you can find it pretty quick.
Regarding the syscheck, compared to mine (and a lot of other syschecks I've seen) you appear to be missing a couple d2x cIOSs but let's try simply getting that forwarder up to date before doing anything IOS wise as it may be unnecessary.
Edit: Though you have a couple Hermes showing as v55.1 which is a bit odd. They shouldn't be higher than v6...perhaps that's an error with syscheck and it means to say 5.1....
Another edit: here is the forwarder you need; http://code.google.com/p/usbloader-g...T.wad&can=2&q=
