    I can't seem to find a good guide on how to do this, and I'm having trouble. I installed the DML 1.5 WAD using MMM, and it said it completed successfully. I put GCN ISO files on my USB HDD in a folder called "GCN". On USB Loader GX, I put the main path as usb1:\GCN and the SD path as the default, which is SD:\games. I switched the view so I can see both Wii and GCN titles, but no GCN titles come up.

    Have I missed a step?

    Edit: lol, I didn't think using Facebook would actually take my profile pic for an avatar.

    GCN games need to be in discex format. and ur game cube games go in "games" folder.

    I'll try it, but are you sure that's the problem? On the USB Loader GX site it says "Supported formats for gamecubes are ISO/GCM and GCRegEx."

    Edit: Thanks, it worked. Loads to the SD card way slower than I had hoped though. I guess it's to be expected.

    GCN game doesn't need to be in discex format, at least not for USB Loader GX. He is correct on the folder, the DML paths are super picky.

    Yea, since it's not true HDD loading, it's copying to the SD card. and the Wii is slow at it. IMO, if you know which games you are going to want to play, just use a computer to put them on the SD card... and then patiently wait for DM or Devolution to release to allow direct loading of GC from USB.
