    Hi all, I have a big problem.

    So I burned an ISO of Super Smash Bros. Melee to a 4.7 GB Verbatim DVD-R disc to play on my Wii (I'm not sure what model it is, but I got it in late 2008 and it is a white one.) It's only the one game, and there are not multiple games on it. It was burned with IMGBurn.

    So I went to load it using NeoGamma Auto Launcher, and as soon as I did this, it flashed a green screen and reset my Wii. I tried to load it with some other applications that were previously installed on my Wii, like WiiGator and GameCube Backup Launcher. All the same result.

    I look up solutions on how to do this and it says that I have to download MIOSPatcher, or a similar program.

    So I go to take out my SD Card on my Wii, which is a 2GB Sandisk For Wii. I put it in my SD USB adapter and load it on my computer, and it says, "You must insert a disk in Drive D:", even though the SD card is already firmly inside my USB adapter. So basically I can not use an SD card to add MIOSPatcher.

    But then I realized that I do have an external hard drive which I put my normal Wii games on, so I decided to try to use that (I use it to play Wii WADs on WiiFlow and USB Loader GX.)

    So I take my external hard drive and I plug it into my Windows 7 Home Premium computer, it brings up a message saying, "You need to format the Removable Disk in order to use this Drive." Formatting means to lose all my files on the drive, and I don't want to do that because I will have to get all the ISO files back, which will take a lot of work.

    So basically, I have no way of getting MIOSPatcher or any other software other than what I currently have at the moment.

    Is there any possible way to play my disc without any other installations (keep in mind I use NeoGamma Auto Launcher) on an SD card?

    And if there is not a way to avoid the resetting of my Wii, is there any way for me to fix my hard drive and SD card?

    And if there still isn't a way to avoid that, how should I treat it?

    PLEASE HELP ME!

    Yes, you can play Wii ISOs off an SD card with CFG USB Loader. It is actually my preferred method.

    Yes, I did read your question. It was in response to your quote:
    Maybe I am interpreting this wrong?

    Edit: If you mean GameCube, you can run them off an SD card as well. Just trying to help ya. :)

    Sorry, its not your fault, I worded it wrong. My question should be worded more like, "Because I can't install anything else on my SD card (not recognized on my computer), is there a way I can run my disc just by NeoGamma Auto Launcher without downloading any more applications?"

    Oh and I don't have CFG USB Loader. I just have Wiiflow and USB Loader GX.

    That is very odd that your computer cannot read your SD card. It is formatted as FAT32, correct? Either it's the computer or the card. As for can you stick with NeoGamma to run your GameCube ISOs with your current inability to utilize your SD card or HDD, that's a question outside of my knowledge since I have never used NeoGamma. Sorry.

    I put the SD Card into my SD/USB adapter and it brought up this message: http://postimg.org/image/4gud2lbwh/

    EDIT: I'm pretty sure that both of my items are FAT32

    Ok, but do you recall if the card's file system is FAT32? Basically, for anyone else here reading your thread, they need to know whether the card's file system can be read by your computer. I'm not sure if NeoGamma, or the other programs you used above, screwed it up to another file system like WBFS.

    Maybe trying changing the drive letter of the SD Card to something else; I quickly Googled this. https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/330137.

    It's probably WBFS. You should be able to use Wii Backup Manager check it and transfer to/from it. As far as I know NeoGamma should support launching games from optical discs. I've never actually used that loader, though.
