    From burnt dvd's

    Requirements
    -a gamecube controller
    -a gamecube memory card (not required to play but to save)
    -a modded wii(at least with hbc)
    if your wii isn't modded i recommend using modmii:Modmii thread
    -a backup loader (for beginners i recommend neogamma, an all in one simple solution)
    ps:you need SNEED OR UNEEK + DI to load gc games from usb but the compatibility is awful and it has many issues i recommend getting a WODE modship if you have a new wii
    obtaining the required tools
    the pack contains
    cMIOSWiiGator: to install the cMIOS
    the required MIOS
    NeoGammaR9beta47 to load the backups
    IMGburn: to burn your backups
    and a little text file
    Download

    Installing the MIOS

    plug your sd card to the pc
    put the RVL-mios-v10.wad that you will find inside the 10 dolder inside 0000000100000101 and put it on the root of your sd card
    copy the cMIOSWiiGator folder to the apps folder of your SD card. Run this in the homebrew channel, don't for get to use IOS249 to do the installing. Select YES for both of the settings before installing.

    congratulations now you have the required cMIOS installed!

    installing neogamma
    neogamma can be installed pretty much like any other app
    copy the contents of the neogamma r9 beta 47 to the root of the sd card(if you have other apps on the hbc don't copy the apps folder just move the neogamma folder inside it to the app folder on the sd card)
    now let's check the options
    Select options, then select General Options.
    Set the Save Config to YES, then select Return to Menu
    Select GC Options, Set the GC Mode to Internal
    Set the Force Video to Disc.
    Return to the Main Menu of NeoGamma and Launch Game.
    If your games fails to launch, you need to change some of the options.
    leave the GC mode set to internal, try adjusting the rebooter first, then try the High plugin or debug. If you have color issues then change the Patch Video.
    also check the compatibily list


    Finally: burning gamecube disks
    remember that setup in the tools folder you downloaded
    it's time to use it
    imgburn is pretty much the best image/iso burning tool avaible, ypu can use it for other consoles such as wii/ps2 games
    ps: stick to DVD - R also if you use DVD + R set neogamma's hooktype to DVD ROM
    now let's get started burning the game
    - install IMGburn
    - open imgburn
    - select write image file to disc
    [​IMG]
    - select the burning speed,4X is recommended
    [​IMG]
    - select "verify burn" and click burn
    [​IMG]
    - now burn your disc
    ps:while your disc is burning do not multitask, make sure the screen saver/scanner isn't working
    leave the mouse/keyboard alone because burning is very delicate
    congratulations now you burned your gc game!

    [​IMG]
    open the game with neogamma
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    enjoy!

    Off a USB HDD/Thumb drive


    Requirements:
    A USB storage device
    A modded wii
    Dios Mios Booter: http://dios-mios-booter.googlecode.com/files/DML_booter_SVN_r30_HBC_Pack.7z
    Dios Mios: http://rapidgator.net/file/29763807/DIOSMIOS_2.2.wad.html
    Multi mod manager (comes with modmii)

    First you need to have the primary active partition of the device formatted as fat32 with cluster size of 32kilobytes.
    You must put you games on a folder called ''games'' on the root of your usb storage device, the games must be in this format:
    A folder that has the game's name, with the iso inside named Game.iso.

    Put your dios mios 2.2 wad file in a folder called wad on the root of your sd card and then install it with multi mod manager (wad manager).

    You must put your gc games on a folder called games on the root of the usb storage device.
    now boot your dios mios booter and enable fullscreen, NMM(so you don't have to use a memory card) and no disk.
    Boot your game and enjoy!

    Ahem,

    You CAN use USB loading... you just need SNEEK/UNEEK +DI.

    wait a minute, I'm confused now. Shouldn't you have put in the requirements a pre-2010 wii? because of the D3-2 drives in the new white and black wiis? or did I miss something and now its possible to play backups on all Wiis?

    Guide is out of date. ( neogamma, Cios d2x , Mios )
    Also the patching process of fstfix ( 32k alignement )and Multiiso is'nt included. ( for games like Baten Kaitos, etc ).
    And games aren't burnt on CD's but, on DVD's.
    Pack is not needed, everyting comes with Modmii ( and will be up to date )

    Nice guide but not complete.

    if you have a modchip installed on your wii you don't need to do anything in this guide at all, apart from the burning to disc part.

    why is it so hard to emulate the games without the need to burn to discs?

    who knows it just seems gamecube games can't be read from a hard drive, it's such a shame really.

    If you installed the MIOS, will you be able to play Commercial Games?

    I think because if the Wii boots up in Gamecube Mode, the USB will be cut off/disabled.

    Hey, I have a great idea! Why won't you just get an SD-GECKO and forget about all that needless preparation, cutting the process down to "Downloading SDLoad or SWISS"?

    It's roughtly 500000% easier, and an SD-Gecko costs roughly $5. Actually, you can even MAKE one yourself out of a spare memory card and an SD card reader. It's REALLY not rocket science.

    Hi I am trying this out so I can play GC games on my wii (obviously)

    I got to the 'Installing the MIOS' step and I put both the files it says on my SD card, but when I put it on my wii I couldn't think of how I installed wad files or anything. >< I only modded my wii like a week or so ago. I tried going into the HBC which is where I think I went last time, but the only thing remotey close to what I want is 'Launch BootMii' and when I click on this the screen goes black, the disc slot pulses blue and my wiimote wont connect to the wii.

    Any help? [​IMG]

    I'm getting an error: DVDErr(1208), Disc ID -------> Do you have a drive connected?
    There is a possibility that it is a burn error, but I wanted to be sure before I burned another disc.

    First off your bumping a very old/outdated guide.

    Click the first link in my signature for most up to date gamecube loading on Wii.
