    Alternate to using gamecube disks for Dios Mios?

    Hey all, I've put a white wiis motherboard in my black wiis case so I can use the gamecube ports so I can play GC games. I'm also still using the black wii's dvd drive (can't play video dvds, etc).

    I found out you need a gamecube disc in the drive for Dios Mios to work. Two problems arise here:
    1) I'm using a NEW dvd drive, that CAN'T read video dvds, and that's from a wii without GC ports (a black wii), will this drive even be able to read a GC disc?
    and

    2) The only 3 games I have are Windwaker, THPS4, and MHPB2. If I can't find my windwaker disc, will I be able to play windwaker with one of these other discs in the drive?

    And finally, is there an alternative to putting a disc in the drive? I really don't want to tear up my house looking for these games >_<. Or is there another loader which doesn't require disks in the drive?

    Thanks.

    Edit: I found my wind waker disk, but i put it in the drive and it just ejects it about 10 seconds later. Looks like the new drive can't read the disks... I really want to be able to play wind waker >_< Anyone have any ideas of what I can do?

    i use dm and in the case of windwaker i starts up a little faster than dml. and it has a no disk option you can turn on, the latest version of usb loader gx is the loader i like the most. it has a lot of options and you may have to change the custom path for the game cube games in the settings menu.

    Okay guys thanks for the help, I found my wind waker disk, and traded dvd drives with my friend since he doesn't play GC games. So i can now play wind waker. I put it in the drive and loaded the ISO via SD on NeoGamma and Dios Mios Lite, but I've noticed load screens (such as when you enter a room) take FOREVER. Like 30 seconds.
    Any ideas?

    I'll try and see if using dm instead of dml makes things go faster. P.S. that no disk option you're talking about, does that mean I don't need a disk in the drive to play?

    DML is a great program ,but you will have some loading times that take a couple of seconds.(I've noticed the same thing.)

    Your best bet to overcome that would be to switch from DML to Dios Mios.
    Since using Dios Mios, I haven't had a disc in the Drive(Some Games Need A Disc In The Drive.)nor have I had any Unwanted loading times.
    Best of all about Dios Mios is you load everything from the HDD.

    I use Usb Loader Gx r1193 mod2 and set the No Disc option to on,so far so good.

    My Sd Card Is 8GB Sandisk and is a Class 4 and it will never be as fast as loading from the HDD using Dios Mios.
    On top of it I don't have to keep switching Games and taking up space on my CPU.
    Mines only takes about 2 Or 3 seconds when using DML to load in between scene's.

    I believe Dios Mios is the way to go, Am just giving Anteara other option's that may suit Anteara needs more then what DML can "Offer".

    I'm having a bit of trouble with dios mios. I just get a black screen after loading, I can play wind waker through disk on NeoGamma and on SD with NeoGamma but when I go to USB Loader GX and try to play it via hdd i just get a black screen after starting. No Dios Mios Logo.

    I'm using a modded usb loader gx that uses dios mios
    my gamecube partiton is partition 1, fat32, 32kb cluster, primary and active
    games are 100% fine as i installed the wind waker cd so it can't be a bad iso.

    Any ideas?

    Yep I have the newest dios mios. Also, 'post loader'? I've never heard of that; could you please provide a link?
