    Ok, so I've looked all over for the solution to this problem....
    First, I'm using ios 58 and booting into genplusGX via latest HBC.

    I'v got a ton of MegaCD games and they obviously don't all fit on my SD card, which works fine BTW.
    So I cloned the segaplusgx directory from my SD and put it onto my 1TB Fat32 formatted Seagate which
    plays wii and GC games fine on through WiiFlow [USBLoader GX doesn't support gamecube loading from HDD].
    I change the RomSource from SD to USB but when I try to access any game I get an error like 'can't access file directory Press B to exit'.
    Alls good through SD card, just not alot of space for MEGACD Titles.

    Please help with this...if anyone has a version of genplusGX 16.0 I would appreciate it,...i've read that's the trick but can't
    find a copy of it anywhere. Any other advice appreciated in advance.

    Cheers

    You don't need to move the genesisplus directory over to access files on you hard drive. Just make a folder for your mega CD games in your hard drive and put all your iso/bin files there. You should be able to just point the app to that directory. That's how I have it set up. Genesisplus gx app on SD and Roms and bins on USB.

    Off the top of my head Genesis plus gx is v.1.7.5. I'll be home later tonight to look through my setup.
