    Hey guys!
    I have been trying to play burnt gamecube games on the Wii for a while now. Burnt Wii games work(on Neogamma), but burnt Gamecube games dont work :S. I tried Dios Mios with USB Loader Gx 3.0 (For Gamecube) and i get "fatal error apploader size is zero" on the Dios Mios loading screen and it freezes....
    Any ideas?
    Thanks.

    You didn't give enough informations.

    Is that really DIOS MIOS, or DIOS MIOS Lite?
    Which version of DIOS MIOS? Disc based games don't work with all version.
    Which exact revision number of USBloaderGX? (3.0 doesn't work with DIOS MIOS)
    Are your wii updated? (you need BC v6)
    If you use DIOS MIOS from disc, you still need to have a HDD connected on USB with a FAT32 partition.

    You want to play from burned Disc? So I assume you have a modchip?
    If you don't have a modchip then you will need to make an ISO of your game on USB or SD.
    DIOS MIOS doesn't allow burn disc without a modchip.


    To play gamecube games from SD or USB, there are some requirements.
    - Correct Loader version
    - Correct DIOS MIOS version
    - Correct partition format


    First, you need to update the USB loader.
    Two different loaders (more exists, but it's long to make a guide):

    DIOS MIOS Booter

    USBLoaderGX

    Update your DIOS MIOS:
    There are two versions
    DIOS MIOS : runs ISO from USB, and retail games from Disc (not burn if you don't have modchip)
    DIOS MIOS Lite : runs ISO from SD, and retail games from Disc (not burn if you don't have modchip)

    DM(L) installation

    Partition format:
    The partition must be in FAT32
    Cluster size: 32k for USB
    Cluster size: 32k or 64k for SD
    if you use USB: Partition must the first first one on your drive, must be a primary partition (not an extended or virtual partition), and must be active.


    Making an ISO of your game:
    1. If you have the game in Disc form:
    Launch the USBLoader, insert the game disc in the Wii, accept to install game.

    2. If you already have the ISO:
    put the ISO file in this folder:

    SD or USB :/games/game name/game.iso

    the folder "game name" is the only thing you need to change.
    For example:
    USB: /games/Zelda twilight/game.iso
    USB: /games/mario sunshine/game.iso

    3. If you want to run from Disc (retail game, not burn)
    DIOS MIOS Lite: put the game in the Wii and launch it from system menu, or from USBloader's Disc menu.
    DIOS MIOS: insert the USB HDD on your Wii. Then put the game in the Wii and launch it from system menu, or from USBloader's Disc menu.

    Advantage of using the USBloader to launch from disc: you can use some settings, like virtual memory card.

    report your result here, working or not.
    It's good to know if a guide was useful or not easy enough to understand.

    I didn't include links for everything, please just make some little search too :P

    Of course, if you really wanted to run a burned disc, there's always the old cMIOS.

    I thought it worked fine. how did you launched gamecube games if it's not working? you used the SD card and DML?


    Did you put the device in the port 0? (this is the one near the edge, at the bottom if you put the Wii horizontally)
    You have multiple partitions on the drive, or only one?
    try creating a folder named wbfs (this is the folder used for Wii games).
    USB :/wbfs/
    USB :/games/

    Yeah it worked when i was using my sd card to run the games but my sd card is only 8 gb and my harddrive is 500gb so i was gonna run my games off the harddrive. but when i put the harddrive in it doesnt load and it says initializing USB device. Ill try the folder thing in an hour or so and get back to you.

    Hard drives can have partitions.

    Your computer (if you are using windows) probably has "Disk C" where you have windows, and "Disk D", and Disk E, etc.
    One of these letter is the DVD, the others are external devices (SD card, USB, etc.), and the others are Hard drives.

    For easyness, a physical Hard drive can be split by software in different "parts" which have all their own letters and acts as if it were different Hard drives.
    That way, when you format/reinstall a partition, you don't loose other partition's data.


    USBloader on Wii are compatible with partitionned HDD too.
    Each partition can have a different format (FAT32, NTFS, exFAT, ext2, etc.)

    You said you understood the guide, so I suppose you know what a partition format is?
    I explained that your drive must be in FAT32, I suppose you know what it means if you didn't ask me precisions.

    The USBloader can have problem to initialize the HDD if it doesn't have the proper format.
