    Which version of USBLoaderGX ?
    if you use 3.0 r1180, then it's too old and it will not display/detect the version.
    current latest loader's revision is 3.0 r1215.

    If it's still not detected, maybe it's a problem caused by the method used to launch the loader.
    If you launch from HBC : You need HBC 1.0.7+, and the correct meta.xml (you need the <no_ios_reload/> or </ahb_access> tag in the meta.xml)
    If you launch from channel : you need a "ahbprot" channel. (do you have an old channel ? try installing the latest forwarder 5.1)
    if you launch from priiloader : install the forwarder's boot.dol, not the loader's boot.dol, and place the loader's boot.dol in SD/apps/usbloader_gx/boot.dol

    DIOS MIOS (Lite) : for Real NAND (intall the wad on your Wii using wad manager)
    DIOS MIOS (Lite) neek : For Emulated NAND using Sneek or Uneek only.


    for usbloaderGX, put the boot.dol in /apps/usbloader_gx/boot.dol

    Hi Cyan, thanks for the response, apologize I nned another advice.
    I tried to install RVL v10 MIOS using both wiigator and also wad manager v1.7 using IOS 249 successfully, but even after installing the MIOS WAD (and confirmed by starting the gamecube games via USB Loader GX said I need DIOS MIOS), I can't boot up the Gamecube games (original) from Disc Channel. The disc channel unable to detect my disc.

    Even stranger, I notice that the Star Wars Rigue Squadron II works with my controller when I run it with DIOS MIOS, but no other games so far.
    Maybe I will try to install DIOS MIOS WAD 2.2 again (the first version I had where all games seems to work) and try. Will post here afterward.

    Hi. I managed to reinstall MIOS v10 and ran original game successfully, where the controller worked.
    However, after re-installing DIOS MIOS, all games except Rogue Squadron II does not recognize the controller. Could it be related to region related issue? Or anything else I could try?

    the controller issue is usually fixed by playing a retail game from Disc Channel (with MIOS v10).
    You did play a game with the official MIOS, but it's still not working? I don't know what's wrong, sorry.

    do you have an official wired controller?

    Is there an easy way to change the partitions around? I set up my HDD years ago, first partition is WBFS and second partition is FAT32 where I had planned to put GB games. Am I screwed as far as using Dios Mios?

    You can convert your WBFS partition to FAT32 without loosing games.
    Check wbfs2fat in my signature.

    OK thanks. Hopefully my games don't vanish, will try it later today. Will USB Loader GX still be able to load everything from what will now be two FAT32 partitions on the drive?

    It is telling me that 44 WBFS sectors are used by 2 or more discs, 33 discs are invalid. If I convert to FAT32 will I lose all those games? I haven't had any problems playing them currently that I know of.

    what it means is that your WBFS partition is already corrupted. At best, on the 33 games, half are good. at worst, only one is good (the last you added).

    when a game is stored on WBFS, it's written at different sectors on your HDD. each used sectors are "marked" by the game to prevent another game to overwrite it. When you delete a game, these sectors are not deleted but marked as "free to use".
    WBFS is not stable, and it happens often that a sector is not correctly marked as "used", and another game added will overwrite a sector used by another game you still have.
    When two games share the same sector, there's no way to tell which game own it. it's only marked as "used" by two different games.

    You need to verify both games to see if their data are fully available (only the game added last should be fine, as it overwrote the previous game's data).

    33 games were detected as using the same sector information as another game.
    You need to check which games are "full" and correct, and delete the other ones (they are corrupted, even if they launch fine, at one time it will crash, freeze, bug, because of missing files/data).

    To check the games, there are differents tools:
    - wwt (part of wwt/wit), it's a command line program to analyze your partition.
    - WiiBackupManager, a GUI program allowing you to verify the games on your partition. (Sha-1 option).


    WBFS is not a stable format
    FAT32 will prevent this from happening again ;)

    Thanks. I just used wwt to see which discs are a problem and am currently copying the games marked as errors over to my current FAT32 partition which has some room and then deleting the originals from the wbfs partition, so far most of them are copying over fine, a few won't copy and look to be corrupt, shame.

    don't copy from WBFS to FAT32, or you will ends with corrupted games on FAT32 too. (the corrupted one will stay corrupted)
    Redump/re-use the original iso to put the game on FAT32.

    A couple corrupt ones wouldn't copy over with wii backup manager. they came up listed in red. the other ones seemed to copy over fine so I assume they aren't actually corrupt. If they are, there's not much I can do and am just out of luck.

    OK that wbfs 2 fat is a great little tool. I have 2 fat32 partitions now. Everything seems to look good except for a few corrupt games I lost.

    Which version of everything did you use?
    - DIOS MIOS or DIOS MIOS Lite? Which version?
    - Which USBLoader ? Which version ?
    - Which BC version ? (update to BC v6 if you have BC v4)
    - Games are in which format? (Iso, compressed, extracted)
