Is there any way to load gamecube emulators off USB ONLY, no SD?

    My graphics card on my PC isn't compatible with Dolphin, so I wanted to emulate the GameCube on my Wii.

    When I tried taking my SD card out of my Wii and into my SD card reader, for whatever reason, it was not working. So I ordered a new card reader. While I wait, I really want to play some Melee. However, I only have a Sandisk 16GB USB (which I formatted to FAT32.)

    In the very instance that I can put a GameCube emulator on my USB drive without the use of an SD card, which one should I do? I've looked at Dios Mios, but I don't know if it requires a SD card.

    At the very worst I could wait for my new SD card reader, but I'd prefer not to.

    Help!

    Just put the Apps folder used by the Homebrew Channel on your USB drive. As for the emulator, Nintendont is probably the best option.

    Just copy over the files on your SD root to your USB root. It'll work perfect. Use Nintendont, it doesn't need DIOS MIOS etc.
