    I was finally able to get USB Loader GX to recognize the gamecube games on the USB Drive.

    Now however, every time I want to play a game, it always wants to copy that data to the SD card. I don't see any menu/settings option to stop this from occuring. It hasn't finished copying the data over yet, so I am not sure if the game even plays at this point, but this is mildly annoying.

    As the entire reason I have a USB drive is to play them from the USB drive. Is there any way to stop having USB Loader GX force the data copy?

    Do you have DIOS MIOS installed instead of DIOS MIOS(LITE)?

    yeah, this 'data copy thing' is probably because u have DML and not DM. With DML it wants to read the game from a sd card, and it will move the stuff from your usb drive to your card.

    I installed the following wad from the SD Card:
    DIOSMIOS_2.10.wad

    Which should be the one you use to play from USB, right?

    Yeah, and that is still telling me I need to copy the data to the SD. I don't see anything about DIOS MIOS / DIOS MIOS (LITE) in the credits of the USB Loader GX (I think it was Cyan that mentioned this in another thread). So I am not sure if it actually recognizes that it is installed. I would assume it does though.

    Well I think you need an updated version of USB loader Gx but I'm not sure we're to get it maybe ( filetrip.net ) but you could also use wii flow.

    i looked at the google code page for gx loader. There is a version where they added DM support. perhaps you need to update from inside the app, cuz you cant download the revised versions from the site.

    If I go to credits, this is what is displayed in the top right corner.
    V3.0 iOS 249 rev 21008
    D2x v8final base56

    If i try to update from the menu, it says i am up to date.I will try updating to rev 1215, and just out pf curiosity is there any reason why they switched to media fire instead of just realeasing everything on googlecode page?

    I realized it might be good to note, that wiiflow doesnt have this problem, but i am not a fan of that loader.I had installed the all in one bundle on the google code page for the 249 ios.

    Media fire has the "beta" releases.
    Googlecode has only the "official releases". V3.0 being the latest official release, the internal update function tells you there's no new release. But there are new "beta" with lot of fixes and features.

    This took a bit longer then I expected to get to. Anyways, I have tried the 215 release and still experience the same issues.

    Are you sure it's the 1215 that you are launching?
    If you put the boot.dol on SD, but still launch the "full channel 3.0", then it's 3.0 which is launched, not 1215
    Launch the USBloader from the Homebrew Channel

    I literally had the same problem two days ago I just googled r1215 found a download installed it, then that version told me I didn't have dios mios installed so I just reinstalled Dios Mios and voila, works fine now.
