    I have USB Loader GX and Dios Mios Lite 2.10

    I install my games to my SD card through usb loader gx. Wii games work just fine but gamecube games don't. I installed paper mario and put super mario strikers disk in the wii. I tried to launch Paper mario but it would just launch strikers instead. I have heard so many different things and looked at so many different articles, I have no idea why it isn't working.

    I have had other versions of Dios Mios installed with no success. What are the requirements to make dios mios work properly and what might i be doing wrong. Please give me STEP BY STEP help because i have tried ever tutorial i can get my hands on and it won't work.

    Please HEEEEEEELP!!!!

    I have tried using DM and DML but no matter what, i can't get it to run from my SD card or my eternal drive. Here, if I want to run the games off the HDD, how should i organize the files? SD/games/examplegame [gamecodething]/examplegame.iso? or should i put the .iso file right in the games folder?

    I have the same issue. It launches the game in the disk drive if I am using Wiiflow or postLoader. Using cfg, the games load perfectly fine. try using cfg and see if the results change

    also try using gcit to extract the games http://www.wiibackupmanager.co.uk/gcit.html

    I have used cfg before and it did the same thing, i was using 2.8 at the time so maybe its different. I would be using it except that it says its a stub whenever I open it, i fixed the stub issue once but i reinstalled it and it doesnt work now and i dont really want to take the time to fix it again. Either way, it should be possible to run DM through GX. I read something somewhere a while ago saying that new versions of DM installed over old versions may cause a problem but idk.

    1. what are the requirements to run dios mios 2.10
    2. do i need any other files on my drive to run a game aside from the .iso file? if so what are they and where do i put them?

    Ok i succesfully launched a .iso game from my SD Card using dios mios booter with DML. I tried loading the same game off of a usb drive with DM and dios mios booter but it just loaded the game in the disk drive.

    Also DML 2.10 is giving me an error saying "incorrect config version, please update your loader" when I try and launch a game off my SD card through GX. Any help for this? I really would like to be able to play GameCube and wii games from GX

    yes, that's why it's booting from disc !
    Everything is in your post !

    Do what DIOS MIOS tells you to do : "please update your loader".

    the version of the loader you are currently using is too old and works only with DIOS MIOS Lite from v1.2 to v2.1
    Starting from version v2.2, you need to use a newer version of the loader or else it will boot the disc in the drive !

    only the boot.dol (the boot.elf is there for debugging purpose only)
    copy in usbloader_gx/
    launch from HBC or from the forwarder channel (not from the full channel)

    why 99% of people think that the word "game" should be replaced by the game's title ?

    I tried to install ios58 but when it finished dowlaoding it said unable to install or something. In the bottom left corner it said i had ios58. So i think i have it installed already.

    Did you put the boot.dol in the correct folder?

    /apps/usbloader_gx/boot.dol
    either on SD or USB

    I uninstalled the forwarder and re-downloaded the all in one pack. What files do I need to install and where for the forwarder channel?

    install the forwarder channel (the one with UNEO in the filename) on your Wii with a WAD Manager.
    copy boot.dol in sd/apps/usbloader_gx/boot.dol

    That's all.

    in apps/usbloader_gx/ folder you need 3 files:

    boot.dol
    meta.xml
    icon.png
