    if not even vwii is working for you im preety sure your sd card is the problem, maybe its dying and such, do this forget about vc inject for awhile, grab a fat32 usb device and put the apps folder there with nintendont and a iso on games folder, then take out your sd card and launch the normal vwii hbc and choose nintendont from there, if it works from straight up usb then your sd card died or your wiiu sd card slot is dying.

    Yeah, i am thinking this is a sd issue, he said he has a sandisc micro sd,i gave him my exact setup for nintendont, and the same forwarder i was using, and had him running all kinds of tests, and the last test i had him run was to put a game on usb and run it in vwii, but he never got back to me to tell me if it worked or not, i think he was frustrated that nothing was working.

    could be his wiiu sd slot dying too thats why im asking him to try pure usb from vwii isntead of wiivc injection.

    I think alot of the people that are having the issue of nintendont forwarder not working could just be using a shitty micro SD adapter, or micro sd is finicky with nintendont, either way, i'm pointing t'words sd card issue

    GCM is actually what the disc format is. It's not really an ISO since it doesn't adhere to the ISO9660 standard. (ISO9660 is a filesystem specification and Nintendo uses it's own.)

    the sd card I'm using now is fairly new, but the adapter could very well possibly be the issue. I had huge problems with the last one I had too, now that I think about it. I should probably consider getting a regular sd card. I don't think my sd card slot is going on my Wii U though. My sd card's app load just fine, it's just my gamecube games and yes Nintendon't does work perfectly from usb in vWii Mode.

    Yes, i know, but the script we are using for the nintendont autoboot vc calls for a gamecube game renamed to gcm so it can differentiate between the wii game, called game.iso and the gamecube, called game.gcm, but also still a iso.

    Is there a way to get rumble working on the wiiU gamepad when using GameCube injection?

    nope gamepad rumble cant be called since classic controllers have no rumble and that is what is emulating.

    wicksand, this is the same drive are you using? I never had problems with my old HDD, but I just bought a Toshiba Canvio 500Gb and now I always get code dumps in nintendon't... :S Doesn't work at all... And if I try to load the game in USB Loader GX appears the message that ISO is not found... :sad:
    Any ideas?? :unsure:

    thanks!!

    Yes! Wii games load well... But not gamecube ones... :(
    I see in first post (I don't know if is outdated) that since v2.230 some drives stopped to work... Maybe I'll check for older versions...

    how are you running your gamecube games? with USBLoader GX, if so you need to make sure the settings are correct in the USBLoader GX menu.

    Yes, I loaded perfectly my gamecube games from USBLoader GX in my old HDD. But now, the same games in same folder, with the Toshiba HDD appears and error that the ISO is not found...
    And If I launch directly nintendont from the Homebrew Channel, there's a Black screen Code Dump Error...

    see if you still have your old copy of nintendont and try it, alot of people are experiencing black screen loading nintendont, maybe something broke in it that we haven't noticed in the newer versions.
