    I posted a thread about this awhile ago, but it got no replies and I couldn't figure out how to delete the post. My Gamecube ISO's are having very bad load times and sometimes not loading at all I can't tell if the problem is with my USB loader GX or possibly my Wii itself because it has recently stopped reading Gamecube discs. I might test out loading Gamecube games off a Wii that can read them to see if that is the problem. If anymore details are needed please just ask.

    1. You cant delete posts on gbatemp. you can ask a mod to lock it or you can bump it.
    2. Are you loading for a usb or sd card?
    Try reformatting with 64kb clusters (if possible) and try again.

    Should be loading for USB, it's set to that in my path. I'll try doing that (reformatting with 64kb clusters) but it will take me awhile to try it out since I have to move the files off the USB.

    USB need 32K/cluster or less (64k won't work).
    SD need 64k/cluster or less.

    The highest size is better for reading/Access speed.

    Alright I'm gonna attempt formatting it back to 32 kb then try once again. I'm guessing my Games should be formatted to 32 k as well? I'm using DMToolbox to format my ISO's.

    Hmm...

    Your HDD where the Games folder is should be Fat32 with cluster size 32kb , also made your hdd primary, active and first (USB1) . Very easy done in easeUS Partition Master.
    Guide for easeUS Partition Master : https://sites.google.com/site/completesg/prepare-sd-usb

    Your Games is either made into ISO file by CleanRip . Then you just move that ISO to 'Games' folder .
    I heard you don't have to optimize the games.. so as long your games is .ISO format , you just move them to USB1:\Games\ .

    Also you don't have to format your HDD . If it is fat32 and 32kb , just make sure its primary, active and first . If its NTFS or fat32 using 64kb (and not wbfs format) you can create 2 partition .

    Todo right-click 'resize/move parition' - shrink the Partition Size as much you want . Press OK . And in Main Menu press 'Apply' wait.. then right-click new partition , 'create partition' , make it fat32, Primary , press OK . And Apply again.. Right-click once again on new partition and select 'Set Active' .
    .
    Im not sure how to make a partition .. First USB1 .. maybe someone can tell that? :)

    Found this on http://gbatemp.net/threads/changing-the-partition-order-in-a-faster-way.329862/ .
