    Multi Disc Gamecube Games

    I'm currently playing a multi disc Gamecube game using the sundriver (Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes, if it matters) and am a bit stumped with regards to how to swap discs when the game prompts. I've searched about and, though various posts on other forums claim it can be done, can find no good advice on how to do it. There was a post on this forum a while ago asking the same thing, but no conclusion was reached:
    http://www.wiihacks.com/sundriver/93...e-backups.html
    I think his question was misunderstood, the replies seem to tell him how to create a single backup disc with multiple games on it rather than how to play a game that uses multiple discs.

    Does anyone know if it can be done/how to do it? I've tried setting the sundriver to PC select mode and changing the disc that way, but it didn't help.
    If it can't be done then I could always use some homebrew to copy the GC save to SD then play through the changeover section on an emulator before porting the save back, but I wanted to know if it could be done first.

    Thanks

    Are you playing the game using normal GC disks? burned disks? Dios Mios (Lite)? Devolution?

    I'm playing using the sundriver hard drive mod. The discs are isos loaded on to the hard drive.

    Yep, that's the one. Sorry if I wasn't specific enough, I'm not too on the ball with all the different mod possibilities.

    don't know about sundriver but other USB loaders have you name the second disc as disc2.iso and I think you press the eject button to change discs

    That's how Devolution does it, I'm note sure about Dios Mios.

    Dios Mios does the same.

    It's up to that add-on of yours to determine how it's handled, if it's handled at all (it wasn't supported by Dios Mios for at least a year before it was added).

    Thanks for the help. It seems that the consensus is that it can't be done using the Sundriver. No big deal - I managed to get around it with some memory card/homebrew copying and an emultor. Multi disc gamecube games aren't very common anyway so I don't think I'll encounter the problem again.
