It will work on any sm as long as the Wii is capable of reading copied discs. Newer wiis will not.

I encountered an issue with games often not being able to recognize physical gamecube memory cards (saying that the "device in slot A can't be used", "the memory card in Slot A is damaged", etc.) after starting them with Neogamma R9 b56 d2x56v7final (249). It was fairly consistent across most games, especially with backups I've burned to / tested from shrunken multi-iso DVDs.
It also seemed random at first, but I've since found out that it only happens after I 'reset' back to the Wii's system menu (with the power button) after starting a game with Neogamma. If I then go right back to Neogamma and relaunch the game (or another on the same disc), the game will say the memory card is bad. However, trying again after a complete cold boot of the Wii (power off, not just a reset back to the menu) remedies the problem, and the first game launched with Neogamma recognizes and uses the card.
While not ideal (have to power off the Wii every time you want to reset the game), try it if you're having trouble getting games to recognize your physical memory card.
I don't pretend to know anything about the underlying cause - I just hacked my Wii for the first time two days ago. I just had this problem and spent many frustrating hours searching/trying to figure out why/how to fix it, and it seemed that no one else has ever ran into this issue. I'm just posting this in hopes that it'll save someone else some frustration.
If someone wants to offer suggestions on a cause / better solution: I softmodded my pre-2008 Wii (can't remember exactly when I got it, but at least five years ago; I could also install BootMii as boot2) using mauifrog's guide, downgraded 4.3u back to 4.1, and created DVD backups as described in this guide. I didn't do any installations as detailed in this guide - the Neogamma installed by mauifrog's guide seems to be working just fine. Games run and play perfectly fine except for this memory card issue. I'll try to answer questions to the best of my ability, but I again point out I just started modding two days ago, so don't be surprised if I ask/say something obvious/stupid.
Also, thanks for this guide, Stomp_422. I never imagined that backing up and playing gamecube games on a Wii could be this simple. Well, aside from this (rectifiable) memory card issue, of course. :)

Great guide, I am just having one problem. My wii firmware is 4.1U. When I go into the homebrew and click on installer for WiiGator's Cmios,then click load, it then reads to select which IOS to use and unfortunately it does not have the option of choosing IOS 236. Please help.

Ok, I was able to load the IOS 236, so now everthing is working!

Thanks for this guide! I had no issues following it.
I have a question though... Can I burn, for example, a 2 disk game like Resident Evil Remake, onto 1 disk (multi iso)? Will it function normally?
Resident Evil Remake, asks for the second disk at a certain point in the game, without saving. So how would it work? Would I simply eject the disk, and put it back in? Would it even work at all?

Do I have to use "Wiped GCM Fixer 1.5F" to patch the shrunken images like the guide stated?
I remember reading another guide here on wiihacks about creating multi-ISOS GC discs that did everything this guide stated but did not include "Wiped GCM Fixer 1.5F" and yet the comments where showing it works.
