    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

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