    Its very frustrating because one of my wii's just will not cooperate with DIOS MIOS.
    Using the same hard drive, I can play my gamecube backups just fine on one of my wiis, but on the other I either get black screen or a shut down.

    Any help much appreciated, thanks.

    Here's a syscheck of the "bad" wii:

    Just in case here's the sys check for the wii where DIOS MIOS works:

    Are you plugging the drive into the correct USB port on the 2nd system?

    Are both your Wiis compatible with Gamecube (seems an obvious thing, but just throwing it out there)?

    Probably irrelevant, but what are you using to launch you games from? DML Booter? USB Loader GX? What version is your launcher?

    Have you tried booting a game on the "bad wii" with a legit disc inside?
    Its a thing that my friends wii has too. He needs a disc inside.

    I believe Luigi is right. I set up my Wii exactly as specified for DM to run and it still won't play my games. I think all it needs is a gamecube disc inserted in the slot to tell DM to start working when such a file is found.
