    If you want to put your Gamecube 'roms' - *chuckle* - onto a usb hard drive then use Dios Mios.
    If you want to put them on a SD card, use Dios Mios Lite. Simple really, both are pretty much exactly the same to set up, there's no easyest one *chuckle x2*. Follow the instructions by the book without skipping anything (this means setting up the program AND the rom iso placement) and you should be fine.

    ok, in advance of an answer i downloaded the files in the link of the forum of how to play gamecuwe roms on a hd, and i took a look at the files! in step 2 you say: Download the DIOS MIOS v2.8 RAR. Go to 'DM', then move 'DIOSMIOS_2.8' to the root folder of your SD card, or for easier installation put it in a folder on the root titled 'wad'.. i dont a map called wad, so i just have to make one? i also can not find the DMToolbox.exe file? i downloaded and un packed al 3 items , but i don't see it! thanks

    -_- reading is difficult.

    Here is what you need to do:

    1. Get Homebrew Channel running
    2. Use DOP-Mii to install the .wad file from Dios Mios
    3. Profit

    Je bent Nederlands?

    Installeer de Homebrew Channel, gebruik dan DOP-Mii (kun je downloaden van www.wiibrew.org) en installeer dan Dios Mios. Zelf zou ik de normale volledige versie gebruiken.

    So you are Dutch?

    Just install the HBC and then use Dop-mii to install the Dios Mios
