    Just plug the nunchuk into the remote before you launch the game. The button assignments and how to switch them are listed in the Nintendont support thread in the opening post.

    Games kinda stink using Remote/nunchuk. A classic controller is much better.

    Worst combination for Game Cube. If you don't have a good Cube Controller, try any USB controller like the PlayStation 3 or 4 controllers or Wii Classic control

    They should work straight out of the box. You just have to connect them with a USB cable. The charge-only ones won't work.

    Yep, each games require different folders.

    Games/Gamename/game.iso

    If you happen to have 2 discs for a game, the second disc has to be renamed to disc2.iso

    What are you using as USB storage? Flash drives are pretty hit-or-miss on the Wii and are not recommended.

    He's not kidding.
    We've all seen many people go through even more flash drives.
    Truthfully, your flash drive's file system has probably corrupted by the intense reading your Wii does with it during USB-loading ISOs. Flash drives were developed for simple storage, where you load some files from it and be done with it.
    Your Wii is reading from your ISOs constantly, as fast as your flash drive can do so. This tends to cause peoples' flash drives corrupting and sometimes becoming totally unusable as a result. Your Wii thinks it's a disc.
    Discs can handle that sort of thing, but instead you're using a flash drive.
    The problem you're having is painfully commonplace among users of flash drives. Just get a USB HDD/SSD if you wish to avoid burning through a bunch of flash drives.

    As far as your folders problem goes--you're putting your games in the correct folders if you've previously made it work, so that's not the issue. Trust me, it's your use of a flash drive.

    well just to let this end .. i ended up buying a 32 gig SD card for my wii.. could not get the usb way to work & didnt mess with my wii HD as it formatted to WBFS ( wish i knew how to make a 2nd partion on that HD ) and the part where you name each game to game.iso is wrong if your using windows using more than one game .... just rename each game in folders to " game " thats it not game.iso !! or no dice and thats it i have 20 GC games working .. very happy indeed !! could not use the wiimote NC way .. which bugged me out .. until i realized it HAS TO BE A OFFICIAL WIIMOTE mine is a 3rd party one .. so im just using my PS4 pad wired in ... all good MGS the twin snakes already on disk 2 ..( love that game MGS1 was so good on GC ) ...

    WBFS partitions are unnecessary nowadays. Loaders can run Wii games from WBFS files from FAT32.

    ALL Wii/GC disc-based games should be named the same way:

    "/<folder>/Game Title [TitleID]/<discName>"

    <folder> - "wbfs" for Wii titles and "games" for Gamecube titles
    <discName> - "game.iso" for first (or only) disc of Gamecube titles, "<TitleID>.wbfs" for first or only file of Wii titles. "disc2.iso" for second disc of Gamecube, "<TitleID>.wbf1" for second (overflow) file of Wii games.

    All Wii/GC loaders recognize and support that directory/filename format.

    You can nondestructively convert WBFS partitions to FAT32. Here is the thread about the converter and a guide for using it if you're interested.

    I grabbed the links from Cyan's signature. :)
