    dios mios works, only with disc

    I am using cfg usb loader & dios mios (not lite). I was able to rip luigi's mansion to my usb drive, I added the iso to the sd card as well, but I get an error if I take the game out of the drive. It works fine when the game is in the drive. Seems silly to back up the game if I still have to have it in the disc slot anyway, what am I doing wrong?

    Also, If I can get this to work, I should be able to add more games with windows explorer if I reformat my usb HD to Fat32? It is currently wbfs.

    Here is the guide-dios-mios
    Try wbfs2fatit does not delete the WII games you will not lose any games,all your Wii games will be in a wbfs folder on your FAT32 HDD, I use it and I did not lose any games and the wii games and HB stuff all work perfect after.
    wbfs2fat, guide-fat32.html.
    After you use wbfs2fat, verify that your HDD is using 32KB cluster size or less.(must be formatted to 32kb clusters for Dios Mios)Use Acronis Disk Director 11 Advanced : right click your disk/change cluster size/current cluster size: I use Acronis Disk Director 11 Advanced on three HDD to change it from 64KB to 32KB and I did not lose any data. (I ONLY RECOMMEND ACRONIS BECAUSE NO DATA LOSS) If you use any other HDD program you will have to backup everything before you change the cluster size.
    You do not need a disc in it for it to work , also the NoDisc setting should be OFF.

    I was able to format to fat32, I tried to download Acronis Disk Director 11 from Download Acronis Disk Director 11 Home [DISCOUNT: 15% OFF!] Build 11.0.2343 Free Trial - Your most complete Disk Management Toolbox - Softpedia It doesn't seem to run though, is there another program? Or another source?

    I tried the hard drive anyway and the wii games work, but the gamecube ones don't. I get an error saying the apploader size is zero. Hopefully that will be fixed once I change it to 32kb cluster?

    Also, what is a good program to put the gamecube games on my hard drive? I've been just using windows explorer. I've tried wii game manager, which wont run and wii backup manager works with wii games but not gamecube games.

    Also update your USB Loaders:
    Try wiiflow v4.0.4 or CFG Usb loader v70 update to CFG Loader r49 or usbloader GX update to R1204. The latest GX is in the bottom of this page USB Loader GX,Replace the boot.dol in your SD /apps/ usbloader_gx with the updated one ( r1204_IOS249)
    Install USB Loader GX -UNEO_Forwarder Channel 5_1_AHBPROT.wad for USB Loader GX channel and Default-FIX94v14b-forwarder-DWFA.wad for wiiflow channel

    Acronis Disk Director (trial) I did not use the trial, because I have the full version. Only use Acronis to change cluster size to 32kb if you have data on the HDD because no data loss, If you do not have any data on the HDD then you could use any other HDD Program. EASEUS and other HDD Programs only lets you change your cluster size after wiping your disk.If you use any other HDD program you will have to backup everything before you change the cluster size.
    I use DMToolbox or DiscEx or any USB Loaders or CleanRip to install GameCube game on my HDD
    DMToolbox can install games in three different formats:
    *RAW : 1:1 copy of the selected ISO
    *Optimised: this removes all the unused space from the ISO,
    but keeps the previous alignment of the files
    *Extracted: this extracts all the files

    I usually choose format: RAW and Align: 32K
    you pick the GC ISO: and the Output dir:
    then click install

    Are your GC games in a folder like
    USB HDD/games/GAMEID/game.iso

    Here is Crediar's own FAQ page

    I dont know what I did, but it works now. I updated my usb loaders and r1203 ios249, but that made my wii games stop working, so I re-installed my ios249 and now it works
