I am trying to play GameCube games without the disc in the disc drive because it's slowly dying on me. For the sake of testing, I've been using Sonic Adventure 2 Battle. my 1TB external hard drive is formatted FAT32 in 32K and so i proceded to install Dios Mios 2.2 via wad manager. After Starting up the newest USB Loader GX i inserted the disc and ripped it to the Hard drive. started up the game and no problems... except the disk was being read- i could hear my wii. i removed the disc and i got "Fatal error apploader size is zero!" so i tried putting in the wrong disc and all the loader will do is load whatever is on the disc. I noticed that there was a DML no disc fix in the loader settings but there are no changes whether it's on or not. Edit: Well i think I'm right when i say you can't usb load GC games with USB loader GX so if someone could help me in doing this, it'd be greatly appreciated.
