    At first it wouldnt show any games at all, eventually i got it to show 1 game, now it shows all 4 but the games are all disfunctional and dont work. I was playing luigis mansion with my bf, this is the only game i can play, but when we got far it just stopped working. If it helps, im using a usb thingie, wiiflow, and they are all uncompressed gamecube isos, if i try a different loader the games dont show up at all, anyone know how to fix?

    I hope u dont mind trying my setup:

    I use a usb loader called cfg loader. get it here: https://code.google.com/p/cfg-loader/downloads/list and pick the top one.
    Unzip and place the folders in your sd card as they say.

    To get it load gamecube games you need to get a different boot.dol for the app. go to https://code.google.com/p/cfg-loader-mod/downloads/list and get the top one. once you have it rename it to "boot", so it becomes boot.dol and take this and replace the boot.dol in the cfg app folder with it.

    your sd card root should look like this:
    SD:/apps/usbloader/boot.dol and the icon and metadata
    and
    SD:/usbloader/a bunch of files and folders.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    part 2: make sure the device your storing your games on is formatted to FAT32 with 32kb clustersize!
    whatever thing your putting games on needs a folder called "games" in the root.

    for your games. i assume you have game on a disc or some on your pc. the discs can ripped throught game installation options in cfg.
    for the game ISO or GCM files on the pc you need to input them through the DMtoolbox which found here: https://code.google.com/p/diosmios/wiki/Downloads?tm=2

    i assume you've installed the correct version of DIOS MIOS already.

    wait, the problem isnt fixed, games still dont show up in cfg usb, and now in wiiflow, it will just either boot the disc in the wii, or the wii will intstantly shut off...

    hmmm......what version of Dios Mios, are you using the Lite version or the other?
    what device are you using to put games on? USB or SD card?

    ok

    you're gonna need to update it to the latest version. I assume you know how to install a wad file.
    go here: https://code.google.com/p/diosmios/wiki/Downloads?tm=2
    download the Dios Mios 2.10 real nand. NOT the lite version below it.

    open the rar and install the DIOS MIOS wad they give you into your wii. this might not fix your problem but, you need to have the latest software for the best results anyways.
