    Your USB Loader GX is old.

    Get the latest one from here. If you have the "full channel" version you will have to remove it and install the dol version as the full one isn't updated anymore.

    it's not old, it's just that he didn't select the correct gamecube mode.
    The message he got is the answer.

    By default it's set to "MIOS".
    The default MIOS can launch retail gamecube discs, but he is trying to run a backup.
    As he has the official MIOS, the loader is telling him to "install an additional gamecube loader" (for example DIOS MIOS or DIOS MIOS Lite, or devolution/nintendont), or to "select a different gamecube mode" (Devolution or nintendont)



    So, which method do you want to use?
    MIOS
    cMIOS
    DIOS MIOS
    DIOS MIOS Lite
    Devolution
    Nintendont

    All the "mios" solution require you to install a MIOS system file.
    Devolution solution require you to copy the devolution loader to SD card and set the gamecube mode in the loader's settings from "MIOS" to "Devolution"
    Nintendont solution require you to copy the Nintendont loader to SD card and set the gamecube mode in the loader's settings from "MIOS" to "Nintendont"

    Ah, ok. I thought that message only appeared on the older builds.

    DIOS MIOS channel ?
    DIOS MIOS is not a visible channel, it's a replacement of the MIOS system file.
    If you have a visible channel, it's probably a launcher (like DIOS MIOS Booter) which is doing the same as USBLoaderGX : a way to select the game, and boot the invisible MIOS system file. If you didn't install the invisible MIOS system file, then it will never work.

    Having only the visible channel is not enough to launch gamecube games, you also need to install the real DIOS MIOS files.
    You probably didn't install them, as USBLoaderGX didn't detect them.




    You said you have Devolution too, but again there are two version of Devolution :
    - A standalone version which can be launched from HBC
    - A "plugin" version to integrate into USBLoaders.

    If you want to boot gamecube games from USBLoaderGX, you need the "plugin" version : the loader.bin file, not the boot.dol file.


    Nintendont, on the contrary, is released in a single version : boot.dol
    you can launch it either from HBC or from an USBloader.


    Whatever loader you choose and install, you need to set the proper settings in USBLoaderGX > Settings > Loader settings > Gamecube mode : MIOS <> Devolution <> Nintendont.
