    I'm having problems playing games from my Seagate Backup Plus portable HDD. I've read on here that Seagates have issues with DIOS MIOS. Is there something I can try to fix it rather than returning it?

    I can play Gamecube games on my flash drive, and I can play Wii games on the Seagate. Just when I go to play GC games from the Seagate HDD, the light on the HDD turns off, then it will briefly turn on again, anywhere from a fraction of a second to two seconds, then it'll turn off. The disc drive doesn't make the sound it usually does, and the DIOS MIOS logo never appears.

    I had this problem and all I did was go into the wiiflow settings and change the gamecube loader to default.

    Does the GC Controller needs to be Original?

    sorry to bump this thread.

    I have a stupid question.
    Will a microSD card formated as FAT32 with 32kb clusters will work as a "USB disk" if I use it with a USB adapter?...
    it's the only "drive" I have available right now to start doing experiments with this.

    thanks!

    I tried using this with Melee and it worked. However, when I add Pikmin and selected it loads Dios Mios and then results in black screen. I tried reformatting the USB drive and it didn't work.

    it's normal. it's just using your disk light as a drive activity light. a lot of loaders have the option to turn it off if that bugs you but it
    's not at all dangerous

    Been a while since anyones posted on this thread. Hopefully I'll still get an answer.

    Got everything working. Gamecube iso are running great on usbloader gx.
    My question is, how do I play gamecube games from a real disc now? On main wii menu when I click the game channel it just turns the wii off..

    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    Uninstall DIOS MIOS if you have it installed and replace it with the stock MIOS. DM will not work with the Disc channel. You can use Nintendont or Devolution instead. Both have much better compatibility, including support for games with streaming audio.

    Or you can install the latest version of DIOS MIOS which works with discs.

    Searching google the results always came to this thread. Stupid mistake I should have paid attention to the warning more. Flipping through too many pages I guess. I thought I would just need a newer version of Dios Mios.. which I thought I found but apparently not new enough. I found 2.9, Didnt see anything newer with google search. The Dios Mios Google code page was empty in its download section.

    I installed RVL-cMIOS-v65535(v10)_WiiGator_WiiPower_v0.2.wad and gamecube discs work again.

    I will try to search more to see what the better option is.
    Thanks

    At this point there's little reason to use DM/DML over Nintendont. It's easier to install, has better widescreen support, supports more controllers, and doesn't require you to muck with your NAND. I've heard Devolution is also good, but I haven't had any desire to poke at it.

    The newest version of DM is 2.11. It's on the repository's download page, but you have to reload the page with your browser's option to "show all content" enabled as it's an https page.

    cMIOS is also very old and hasn't been supported longer than DM.
