    Ive just modded my wii and trying to get gamecube games working but all I get from Dios Mios is fatal error: apploader size is zero!
    Im using Dios Mios Lite 2.6 with WifflowMod r663. I know there is a newer version out (r4902) but all I can get is source and I don't know how to compile that. I've also tried USB config loader v3

    I have a Wii game in the DVD drive and the ios that is patched on the wii is ios 236

    Any ideas

    No one would help me with this issue either. I did find a solution, hope it helps.
    Here is the steps I took to run it from my SD Card.
    Formatted my SD card to FAT32 with a 32kb cluster size and set it to primary and active using EaseUS Partition Manager.
    Downloaded DIOS MIOS 2.6
    Run WAD Manager 1.7 select IOS249 and uninstalled DIOS MIOS & DIOS MIOS Lite.
    Ran WAD Manager 1.7 again and selected IOS236 and installed DIOS MIOS Lite using that IOS.
    Downloaded USB Loader GX Mod, gotta google for the modded version of USB Loader GX or you will just get another error or possibly the same error.
    Then used DM Toolbox set Format to "Optimized" and set Align to "32k" and selected the GC ISO and selected the output to the SD card.
    Then, I started up USB Loader GX selected the GC game (which for me was Paper Mario) and went to settings and enabled "no dvd patch".
    Thats all.

    I could not in any shape or form to get this running using Wiiflow 4.1 (the latest) with no replies from anyone on any forum.

    Thanks. That worked. No need for any Wii DVD or GC game disc in the Wii. The fix was loading the DIOS MIOS (not lite) WAD under IOS 236. I had no luck with DML. No fancy settings needed in USB Loaded GX rev 1204 (ios249 - rev 20 - under DIOS-MIOS 2.5+). Only Loader Setting I put on was DML Pad Hook. DM does not copy the iso from the USB HDD to the SD card, and loads are fast.

    Wiiflow 4.1 also works. Just had to make sure of two settings for each game since there are no globals like in USB-GX (after checking source is GameCube ; hit the B buton and select the GC icon, then partition is set to USB1 in config [gear icon]).

    Page 3: No DVD Patch: Enabled

    I insured that I used DMTToolbox to recrunch all the isos.

    So, I know this is hoping to ressurect a post but I was given a moded wii, and am trying to get GCN games to work, I've gotten Wii to work, on my 160 gb external, and partitioned some off for GCN, It's the primary, I have the files set right at least for configurable usb loader 70r65 but that says it's not a legit rip etc, so cant use that, for USB loader I read DIOS MIOS, I have 2.9, tried to install, thru wad folder on both SD and USB, both said there was an error, gets to 99% install, and stops. Running cios 2.49 of some sort, N64 wads, nes/snes/gba emus work etc, just cant get GCN to work, if anyone has ideas/needs more info please let me know (telling me where to find the info would be great also :D)

    you should get DIOS MIOS 2.10, install that with a wad manager, make sure the USB drive is formatted to FAT32 with 32kb clusters. use an up to date loader, Wiiflow is at like rev 1026 (? maybe more) and USB Loader GX is at r1218. i don't use CFG anymore so proceed at your own risk.

    make sure the ISO is in the usb:/games/any_folder_name/game.iso
