    They load fine, but they don't detect my memory cards. I have two in both slots. What's weird is that they used to work, but I uninstalled Dios-Mios and then installed it again (Most likely a newer a version). I am using USB loader GX with the default settings.

    Here is my syscheck:

    this wouldn't work as nintendon't doesn't support actual gamecube memory cards sadly
    any ways

    have you tried using the wii's memory card manager to see if the wii even detects them?

    I feel dumb now. They're not even recognized there. Weird, they were working like a few days ago.

    EDIT: Is this related to Dios-Mios or is it something wrong with my memory cards?

    Could be the memory card do you have any others you can test with?

    if you really want to play gamecube games and don't want to waste money/or can't get them right now you could always use nintendon't as it has memory card emulation as a option included in it

    I'm kinda embarrassed to say this, but the memory cards were not facing the correct direction. *Facepalm*

    That's still very strange. I thought the memory cards can't go in backwards.

    Anyway you should try Nintendont. It's made by the same guy who made dios mios and some others in the community. Compatibility is increasing rapidly. Not to mention it's not as picky about the harddrive as dios mios is.

    See if you can use the memory cards with an original MIOS installed. I don't think DIOS MIOS has any issue detecting real memory cards though, just some games have issues when actually saving.

    I'm pretty sure Nintendont can use a dump of your real memory card file for the memory card emulation feature, so make a backup of them using ctr-gcs if you're going that route.

    I'm hearing a lot about nintendont. Why should I use it instead of DM(L)? I heard that it doesn't the compatibility that DM(L) has, and that is the most important thing for me.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    you can have both installed, nintendont doesnt use the mios, its separate

    but i think if the wii doesnt even detect the cards on the manager, it will not do anything..

    are you sure they are working? try them on another system..

    when you installed dios mios\changed the thing, they were plugged? i heard to dont have them plugged when doing stuff like installing IOS...

    The memory cards are working now. As I said, I put them incorrectly at first.
