hello all and thank you for taking the time to open this post.

I've been researching and came across this website many times trying to backup my gamecube games so I decided why not to make an account so you guys can help me directly.

Over the past 2 weeks I've been researching (many hours a day) on how to back up my games. I have gotten my wii games to successfully launch via USB Loader GX thanks to this site.

Now comes my problem, I can't launch my gamecube isos. I have tried many different wads and versions of DM and DML (DML is a problem, I want to load from usb, not SD) and I can't even get the DM splash screen.

I have tried Wiiflow, Cfg, and USB Loader GX (and out of those I can only launch wii games from USB Loader). I have countless wads in my SD card, So maybe it is a wad problem? Not even pimp my wii can help. The closest I've gotten is the DML (i found out I don't want DML) splash screen, and then it would launch the disc in the drive.


Here is what I know. My usb drive is in FAT32, with 32k clusters, I converted (i guess you can call it that?) my gamecube isos with DMLizard

My main goal is to launch games via my USB. Can anyone help me out? If you need more info please let me know...

I made a new logo for Pimp My Wii a few days ago when I was bored. Maybe you can figure out the kind of reputation it has earned:

Just install diomios 2.10 and use thelatest beta build of usb loader gx.
No rocket science at all.
You can only have one type of Mios at a time.
so it's either official mios, diosmios-lite, diosmios, or cmios by wiipower wiigator.
It does not help to install diosmios and install miosv10 afterwards, diosmios get overwritten.

How do I uninstall the others? I figure if I overwrite DM with another DM.....I still have DM, don't I? Rather than 2 separate versions....also where can I find a link to the latest beta build of USB loader go, and Which wad should I remove?

do you have a retail game in your drive?
No before I did, when I had DML, and it would give me the DM splash screen and load up the game in the drive, when I remove the disc, I would get the Splash screen and an error along with it.....that was when I didn't know I had DML, I just want DM

so maybe my HDD isnt supported? I ensured it doesnt fall under any of this
I just get a black screen (no DIOS MIOS splash screen)

Chances are high that your USB2IDE device isn't supported.
  • Assure that your HDD is formatted with FAT32, no other FS is supported.
  • Only cluster sizes 32KB or less are supported.
  • Only 2TB drives or less are supported.
  • The FAT32 partition MUST be the first primaly partition on the HDD, otherwise it will not work.
I have a 300GB western digital.....is there a list of HDDs that arent supported?

    I don't like popcorn at all; bland taste, and it got ruined for me because of high school - the school cafeteria reeked of microwave popcorn for several days...utterly revolting, couldn't even enter the place it stunk so bad.

    Nah, for movies I'd rather get a bag of lollies instead of popcorn.

    Not lollipops; what Americans would call "candies" or just "candy" IDK. Before the pandemic, cinemas used to have buckets of different ones - sour cola, sour watermelon, and many others; I used to get a scoopful of two or three types into a paper bag to have throughout the movie.
