    i just installed dios mios and have tryed both dml booter and neogamma and cant get gcm files to work...

    they dont even show up in neogamma. when they show up in dml booter it starts loading then crashes the wii.

    iv tryed the games from iso and they work (animal crossing and windwaker) but none i try work when gcm.

    any ideas peeps?

    It sounds like you dont compress them properly, read my guide carefully again, it works for sure you just do it wrong.

    well now i cant even play iso files! the 2 that were working (animal crossing and wind waker) now fail to load and i just get black screen with green power light on the wii!

    i didnt do anything to SD card other than put one more gc game on it and then tryed again and none work!

    this is a mission :(

    i was using GCMUtility. is that no good? you do mention loads of ways to compress in your tutorial, which is best!?

    when using GCM i rename the iso something other than game, open the GSM program, find the iso and choose shrink, when it asks for a name i type "game" and it creates the gcm file in the folder which i copy to my SD root "games" folder! is that wrong?

    @FIX94 where is your guide? cause I do not see it in your sig also does your guide work for GCG loading via USBL-GX?

    I assume you're after this guide

    You can play the games either with DIOS-MIOS Booter, NeoGamma, postLoader4, Wiiflow, USB Loader GX or Configurable USB Loader.

    my bad. will try gamecubeisocompress. still cant figure out why iso would work once and then not again....

    same thing happens.

    when i use the old diosmios instaler i get black screen, when i try installing the new wad for diosmios a screen for GCloader comes up and stops on "loading apploader, loading main.dol"
