Failed to set things straight? WTH does that mean? We can try to assist, but you need to give us a little more to go on thatn that......
Heres what I dont get -this is DML we're talking about here. The ability to play games from an SD card. So why would you want a full channel version of a loader rather than putting on the SD? You obviously have one if you're attempting to use DML?

Is the drive reading the regular wii games ok? Could be possible that the drive is starting to pack up? If u followed the softmod any wii guide successfully then the ability to play backup discs of gc games should be restored.

Sorry. I started bringing up my problem in this thread a page or two ago, and Pob3008 has been corresponding with me. Basically, after checking out DML I want to go back to using backup discs for the Gamecube games I need them for. My disc drive seems to be aging a bit as I've gotten read errors consistently with a few games that are in great condition, but using discs offers greater compatibility than DML.

I just booted up Punch-Out!! (the Wii version just to be clear), and ran through a few matches just fine.

I honestly wish I could just restore my Wii to factory settings via a boot disc or resetting bios or something. I'd really like to get that functionality back, but I'm ready to give up. Thanks for your help guys.

Whats the best way to exit out of neogamma besides just hitting power?
these work compressed with rev 58
legend of zelda 4 swords adventures_ perfect
Sonic Adventure DX sound sometimes skips and a little slow to load
these work uncompressed with rev 58

I think the only way is to power off at the moment

you can actually turn that off in the wii system menu, so hey nintendo got one feature right out the box. Is there anyway to find out the titles of the games after they been through discex, after they turn into the smaller folder? I am having a tedious time to determine which game is which when i am on the computer? right now i have a smaller card and cannot put all my games on at once but basically have to guess whats what unless im missing a trick.
Also when i change out games, the titles still of the previous are still displayed in the line up when using wiiflow, like the games are still there. But they obviously don't work when clicked, and the game in the drive will launch.
edit ** figured it out just deleted the files off my sd card, reloaded my games anyway.

SO! I have been playing around with the program WiiBackupfusion, and finally got it to work with DML using Neogamma without having to use DiscEx on the game iso itself. The whole point of this is because you can not use DiscEx on Mac.
You take the gcm or iso file of your game and upload it to wiibackup fusion. Load the file by locating the folder its inside, and selecting that folder, not the file, as the source. All gcm or iso files in that folder will load. Select the particular file in Wiibackupfusion panel and Extract it by clicking extract at the lower right side. Remember where you save it to. Look up the location and youll have a folder which will be labeled "Name of game (gameid)" with several folders and files inside.
The contents will be similar to the folders discex provides with three main differences. The GAMEID on the subfolders are slightly off, which I went ahead and changed to the actually ID name (You can look up this in the info tab of WiiBackupFusion under ID, typically GXXXXX). The second difference between Disc Ex and WiibackupFusion is this process will give you two subfolders ( a Files folder and a Sys folder) and a text file (setup.txt). DiscEx will give you a game.iso file and a sys folder. Finally, the sys folders contains a few more .bin files that DiscEx and and a main.dol file.
So you are left with this folder hierarchy
Game Name (Game ID) folder This folder is not Important but is a good to keep so you know what game is what. It will be "Actual Title (GAMEID) so if you keep it as backup on your computer, its also easy reference.
____Game ID folder (after renaming it) ***This folder IS Important
_______Files folder This folder not is Important
_______Sys Folder ***This folder IS Important
_______Setup.txt This file is not Important
Take the Game ID and Sys Folder and Drop it on the SD Card in your Games folder. Take the Original GCM or ISO file and change the name to game.iso and drop it in the root of that particular GAME ID folder now on your SD Card. Like this
and bam, enjoy!! XD
Compatibility still applies, and some games are slow depending on memory card and game. This Method was discovered with XMEN Legends 2 Rise of Apocalypse uncompressed, running rev 58
It works with Neogamma and Wiiflow. As far as Compressing with Wiibackupfusion..... transferring to a cios file type (Compact Ios file) does seem to reduce size, and it is still recognized by dml, but for my few games i could not get it to load past black screen. The titles also did not work (for me they appeared as @@@@@@). Similar gamecube iso and WFBS, you are able to write these files to a wfbs drive but they do not show up on your usb drive on wii. The technology is at the cusp of being figured out im sure. This program im not sure was designed for this or who made it if there on here or not, but it works well.

so it should look like this?
root folder - games folder - (and all ur game.iso's and sys's folders) ?
can the game.iso be renamed game1.iso? so that they dont overwrite each other. (same with the sys folder)
