    I have to have a GC mem card in the wii and gamecube controller plugged in for this thing to work? Or is that just a suggestion?

    You don't need a memory card, and you probably don't need a controller, though playing a gamecube game without one is a bit difficult.

    No Memory Cards. No GCN controllers. No TV. Wii only. Final Destination.

    very funny guys - I ask b/c it's not working and I do not have a mem card or GC controller plugged in. I plan on getting both today. Could that be the reason why I am getting a dvd error?

    You cannot install the MIOS thingy without a GC controller (it won't read Wiimote input), and without the MIOS your loader won't read the disk. So all is fine.

    Nope, that's because you use bad media or you just got a bad burn. Read my guide(Link is in my sig). It has nothing to do with you not having a gc mem card and gc controller.
