    Are you using DIOS MIOS or Devolution to run GC with your USB loader? Is the game loading at all, then crashing, or not starting to begin with? Do ANY GC games work?

    Maybe your HDD is spinning down? Or your Wii is overheating? Just wild guesses.

    i don't know anything about hdd spinning down, i'm trying to play gamecube games with a usb flash drive.
    but it can't be because of overheating because there is no problem with wii games.

    Try another USB flashdrive. USB loading for DIOS MIOS isn't as stable as you think. SD card loading is much better than USB loading for DIOS MIOS.

    Controller has a rip?Does the game load anything that it shouldn't be able to normally?
