    This is driving me crazy, I would love to get all my gc games onto my usb loader which is a verbatim usb loader and I have tried a ton of stuff to get it to work but I keep getting the same black screen when trying to run kirby air ride or mario party 6. My usb drive is active and fat 32, I use it to run wii backups and it works fine for those, I also tried both 2.9 and 2.8 of dios mios through wiiflow and dios mios booter but all I'm getting is a black screen after pressing on the games in the loader.

    You can use chdsk to detect the cluster size. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/245436

    Alternatively, connect the drive to your pc. Open up Notepad and type "hello" (no quotes) and save it to your drive. Right-click on the saved file, click Properties and look at the "Size on Disk". If it says 32kb then your drive should be formatted correctly. Anything else Dios Mios won't work correctly.

    Is your Wii console NTSC? If so are the games you are trying to play all NTSC? The only game I can't play is MGS Twin Snakes and that's a PAL image. Even if I try Force NTSC it just gives me a black screen after the Dios Mios splash. So maybe that's related. Also, what version of d2x cios are you using? Have you tried any other loaders, I use USB Loader GX and it works fine.

    I am using ntsc-u and the games are ntsc-u as well. I havn't tried usb loader gx but ill try it out. when i run the games i don't even get to the dios mios splash, it just turns black. I'm not sure what d2x cios im using either, i'm not sure how I would figure that out.

    Also, in USBLGX in the Credits section it will tell you what version of Dios Mios(if any) you currently have. Because if you aren't even getting the splash screen you may have installed it wrong.

    edit: I installed the newest d2x v10 and still get black screen no splash

    Does it say Dios Mios 2.9+? Personally I would try reinstalling it, at the minimum you should get the Dios Mios splash screen when launching games. Try reinstalling it using DM for a USB drive or DM Lite for SD. Maybe you installed DM Lite on accident before. So if you don't already have it get WAD Manager 1.7 and use that to install DM (Real NAND version) to slot 236. If this doesn't work then it may simply be that your drive isn't compatible for Gamecube games. Some aren't :(

    it did say dios mios 2.9+, but when I installed it I installed it to 249, I don't have an option for slot 236, i think it's a stub or something like that, would installing it to 249 be the problem? Because it did show up in the credits of usblgx.

    I'm not sure. I'm just telling you what I did personally and what worked for me. I installed it IOS236 and everything works fine for me. I think the guide I used installed 236 for me. You can try http://gwht.wikidot.com/ios236.

    I would suggest trying a different USB drive - your drive might be setup wrong or incompatible. DM only installs over the MIOS slot for the real nand version. IOS 249 is your d2x cIOS - you're not installing to slot 249, just using the cIOS in that slot to allow you to install the wad file.
