As the title says, I'd like to know what the strategy on running GC games is. I used to be able to, but after a while I hadn't used the GC loader any more, and stopped using it altogether. Add a few firmware updates, and there you have it, I can't figure out how to run them anymore. I'm on 4.3U, and as some of you may already know, the cIOS installer for the Gamecube Backup Loader doesn't work any more. I've got my Wii set up so it can run Wii stuff on dvds and through my external hard drive, I just can't run GC backups. I tried whatever the latest version of the Gamecube Backup Loader there is (I forget which number atm), and I tried USBLoader GX. They both recognize my games on dvds, but when they try to run them they return to the Wii menu. Well, Bootmii, then the Wii menu. I was going to try loading a iso through USBLoader GX, but either it can't see it on there, or I don't know where I'm supposed to put the iso on my external hard drive so the loader will see it. I'm assuming I'm missing some sort of cIOS, but I'm not sure what. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong? EDIT: after looking around some more, I'm pretty sure I misunderstood the chart in the "backup loading basics" thread. I've been wondering how they figured out how to load GC games off of something plugged into the USB port. XD I already have the few of my games that I actually wanted to play burned onto dvds anyway though.
