    Hi everyone. I'm here for asking help D:

    The title says the main problem: i can't play gc games with Dios Mios Booter, but let me explain from the begin....

    -I've installed the Dios Mios (not Lite). It's the last version.... like 2.10 if i'm not mistaken.
    -The hard disk is now with only one partition, Fat32 and 32kb cluster.
    -The game file is working because with a usb pendrive (8gb) i can play the game, doing the same operations i did at the hard disk.
    -With cfg (last version) the game not appears.
    -With usb loader gx (pretty sure it's the last version too) the game appears, but i can't play it because the program wants to copy the game into the sd and then it tells me there isn't enough space.
    ^^^^about that: the sd is 4gb and it has just a bit more than 2gb free, and the game is 1.4gb size, in the options, i set correctly the usb path (in fact the game is shown on the screen), and i'm totally sure that in my wii there is Dios Mios NOT lite.
    - With Dios Mios booter i can see tha game, but when i try to play it, black screen.

    With the usb pendrive, usind dios mios booter all works fine. With cfg and usb loader gx there are the same problems shown for the hard disk.

    My hard disk isn't in the list of compatibility, but in another site (i forgot which) i've found it and it says it works fine with wii and gc, and i confirm that with wbfs wii it works perfectly.

    The hard disk is Seagate, the space is around 1.5 Tb and the model is SRD00F2.

    Can someone help me? :(


    P.S. I've tried to reduct the partition volume to the same size as the usb pendrive, but it doesn't work either...

    Thanks in advance and sorry for my awful english. See ya :)

    P.P.S. The game is Pokèmon Colosseum.

    Gambia, The
    SRD00F2 is the model number of the hdd enclosure. If you found it in some obscure compatibilty list, it might just mean that the enclosure works for wii games, and gamecube games via DIOS MIOS were not tested. And even if it was tested with DIOS MIOS, it still would't say anything about your HDD.

    The absolute compatiblity killer for DIOS MIOS is a HDD with 4k sectors. All HDDs with more than 2 TB capacity have 4k sectors. But on top of that some(most?) newer HDDs use them anyways, even though they wouldn't need to.

    So you need to find out if your HDD uses 4k sectos or not. This can't be changed by software btw. Maybe you can find a program that can tell you what physical sector size your HDD uses.

    By the way, the compatibility list said that works with Wii AND Gc using Dios Mios...
