    I have been using CoverFlow with a USB HD and have a bunch of Wii isos on there.
    Is there any way to have GC games on HD too?

    CoverFlow does not recognize GC disks if you try to rip them from there, and WBFS Manager shows GC disks as 0 size for data.

    So does the file system have any capabilities for GC games, or just native wii?

    Nope, at the moment there's no loaders that can play GC games.

    No you can't run gc games through a usb loader because when the wii runs gc games it turns off all wii functionality so no usb ports = no usb loading for game. Something completely new will have to be done in order for that to happen, and that has not happened as of yet so at least for now that's not happening. WBFS = Wii Backup File System...I think...but it's built for Wii games regardless so yes it's just native wii.

    What about Wiiware/Virtual Console games?
    I'm assuming all of the emulators out there run through game cube compatibility so they will not work with USB loader, right?

    No, the emulators run in Wii mode. In theory, I think it would be possible. The thing is, WiiWare and Virtual Console-games are supposed to run from the really fast NAND in the Wii. Running from USB might make them really slow. Of course, something like Nintendo does (copying the game to NAND, then running it) would be perfectly possible.

    Mhm...you mean that one here:
    ?

    Well, with GC-Games, it's realy hard, nearly impossible to do...the whole MIOS would have to be changed, so it can "see" and use the USB-Ports...it's possible, but unbeliveable hard...this was answered several times btw...please use the search...

    @VC/WiiWare: Not shure, but I think WiiMU can launch Channels without the System Menu..or am I wrong? [​IMG]

    it seems UniiLoader can load gamecube game through USBloader.
    Edit :
    Nevermind, It's not loading iso, just booting DVD from the usbloader screen using Mios.

    Sorry
