    Well, for one, you can't currently play gamecube backups from USB. Only from DVD copies.

    And also, you aren't using the appropriate loader. To play gamecube copies with a softmod, you need to install the cMIOS, and use an appropriate gamecube loader. The cMIOS is able to implement the loader into the disc channel to simply the process.

    So try installing the right software and see how it goes.

    ^The NAND has nothing to do with playing Gamecube games.

    i haven't been keeping up with the scene, and I may be dense, but where's this thread you're referring to? Or just the app?
