Try not renaming the folder. See if that works.
Yes, infact I installed it straight to the USB from the program. I renamed the folder to "Mario Kart Double Dash! (Game ID went here), and I left ISO as game.iso

Can you plug in your USB drive into your PC and run "chkdsk" on the hard drive's letter that your system sees it as?
Here is mine for an example:
cdhkdsk exampleCode:C:\>chkdsk h: The type of the file system is FAT32. Volume WII DISK created 7/12/2014 10:53 AM Volume Serial Number is 9ACD-1212 Windows is verifying files and folders...

What does your output look like?
The check is taking a long time, but I will edit it in right below.
Edit: Didn't know how to copy command prompt Finally found out!

ok. 32k cluster check is good. This is a 500gb partition. Is this the only partition on a 500gb drive? Or is it a larger drive partitioned into smaller pieces?
If the first/only, is the partition "active" and "Primary" (not logical) and formatted as MBR (don't recall what the other alternative is).
This information can be found when you mount the drive to your Windows machine and load up EaseUS http://url.llaffer.com/easeus partitioner.
This drive isn't partitioned at all. It's set as "active", "Primary", and formatted as MBR.
Then the only thing I can think of is that the hard drive may just simply be incompatible with DM. Usually, if a drive works for Wii, it works for GC games as well, but I have seen cases where Wii games work and GC do not.
If you can, try it with a thumb drive formatted the same way, or another smaller external USB device just to see if things work or not. Then if it does work, then we know it's the original drive not working with the Wii.
Well, I don't really have another HDD or a thumb drive. I had to buy the one I'm using.
Edit: I forgot to say that it can load GC backups perfectly on Nintendont.
