    Question Completely lost after using the "Hack ANY Wii" guide.. Help!

    Hi everyone I am new here and JUST soft modded my virgin 4.3U wii using the letterbomb method. After successfully doing so, I followed the "Softmod ANY Wii" guide. Everything went well with installing all 30 WAD files as well as Priiloader, just as the guide described. I then finished by putting all of the files from "step 3" onto my SD card and everything seemed to be going smoothly. The homebrew channel is working along with all of the loaders that were given in the tutorial.

    After this, I got completely lost. I ended up following the guide to installing d2x cIOS v8 WADS after looking through the forums (I am not even sure if you need this or not). I also ended up following a guide to installing Dios Mios Light and Dios Mios 2.0 (I have installed the WADS etc).

    My main goal was to play my gamecube games from a USB hard drive, so I downloaded WBFS Manager 4.0 to convert my Gamecube image files. I formated my 8 gig usb thumb stick to WBFS (I wanted to test everything out before using a bigger drive). I installed my Gamecube image file to the thumbstick using the WBFS manager. It said everything was successful. I boot up my Wii and put the USB in the back in the correct port (closest to the edge of the Wii) and put my SD card in as well to load the homebrew apps. I have tried WiiFlow, Configureable USB Loader, USB Loader GX and Neo Gamma (all of the loaders that came with the "softmod ANY wii" guide). None of them recognize that there is a gamecube image on my USB stick.

    I decided just to try installing the image file to my SD card (to see if anything at all would work). So I used DiscEX to convert my image file and put it in the proper location on my SD card (followed the instructions in the Dios Mios Light Guide). I also installed the Dios Mios Booter to try. This time the Wii recognized the gamecube game with every loader. The problem now is when I try to boot the game I get a black screen and the Wii freezes. I have tried 3 different game images now and none of them will work. Am I missing something? Help!

    I will add my System Check to make things a bit easier for anyone trying to help.

    Does your wii have the Gamecube ports to support playing the games,if so your good to go.

    Here try This version of DML,DMLr58[No Disk].Wad extract it then put the wad in your wad folder and install it with wadmanager.

    Also some Games require you to have a wii Disc or Game cube disc in the drive, or you will get a black screen.
    Your system check is fine.

    Thank you very much for the quick reply!! Yes I have the Gamecube controller ports (I have had my Wii since the first week it launched). I will try the .wad you provided and let you know how it goes. Thanks again I really appreciate the help.

    Update: Alright so I installed the .wad and am now able to run my gamecube image off of the SD card successfully but I still can't seem to get any of the loaders to recognize the images on my USB stick. From what I understand Dios Mios 2.0 is new? Looking on the forums it seems a lot of people are struggling with one issue or another.

    You are using Dios Mios Lite.

    Dios Mios lite will copy it from your Usb Drive to the Sd Card.
    It will not run it directly from the Drive.

    Dios Mios has a compatibility issue with some Usb Hdd's.
    Also are you using the latest Loaders,Like Usb loader Gx v3.0 r1191?

    That Usb loader has the support for usb loading of GC games.
    Also the thumb drive would have to be formatted to Fat32 and to primary and active and no higher then 32kb cluster.

    Have a look at this thread.-->Dios Mios v2.0
