    So I have been trying to figure out how to load a GameCube ISO onto a USB drive (32GB FAT32 format). Every time I try to load OOT: Master Quest onto the drive with Wii Backup Manager it says it got added in 0 seconds and the name of the file appears in red right beneath it. I'm sure this has been asked before but I don't fell like searching any longer for it. I would like to know if there is a way to put GameCube games onto the drive with WBM, if it's even possible. Or if there is a program that will do it. (I want to play it on USB loader 3.0 with DM compatibility.

    Thanks



    EDIT: Well I got USB loader 3.0 to see the game and start it up (OOT: Mater Quest) and it goes to the GameCube symbol with DIOS MIOS under it.. and then it crashes.

    you dont need to use WBM to transfer to usb.
    Just drag & drop the file to your usb on your computer. needs to be in usb/games/ folder to work.

    No.
    WBM is for Wii games ONLY. Hence the name Wii Backup Manager.
    GC games can drag and drop to games folder in root of USB, although, they should be converted first, using GameCube ISO Compress, fstfix, DiscEX or GCReEX......
    And, make sure your usb is formatted to FAT32, use FAT32 GUI Formatter.

    Thanks for all your help but for some reason a few Japanese Wii games I have won't work unless my USB drive is WBFS.... So i guess I'll just have to launch GameCube games off my SD card..

    EDIT: Well the game runs off an extra USB 4GB drive I had and it turns out that OOT: Master Quest doesn't work past the game selection screen!! :P
