    Hello,

    When I try to install a game from the DVD to my usb hdd, there is an error message : insert a wii disc.
    I have this message with original wii disc and also with backups (known as functional).

    I read that it was possible to copy a game from DVD to HDD using usb loader gx, how can I do that ?

    I have a PAL Wii with Drivekey v2 installed.

    Thanks for your help.

    what format is your hard drive (if its NTFS, u fail, that has no write support)

    what EXACT cIOS are u using?

    yes it's NTFS.

    I think it uses slot 249 with cIOS rev17 (by default) and I have also installed cIOS hermes v4 like in the guide.

    as i said earlier, ntfs does not have write support

    if u want to rip games to ur hard drive, it needs to be formatted as either fat32 or wbfs

    This planet
    It does
    But it's very unstable and may corrupt the HDD
    I believe GX is the only loader with ntfs write support atm.
