    Since I've modded my Wii I have been loading my Wii games through USBLoaderGX and my GameCube games through WiiFlow. So just the other day I thought, maybe I can finally make both types of games load on 1 USB Loader.

    I uploaded the newest WiiFlow (http://fix94.no-ip.org/wf_revs/), but all the buttons are missing text?

    I tried the newest USBLoaderGX (https://code.google.com/p/usbloader-gui/) using the installer, but I still can't load GameCube games from USB. It wants to save them to the SD card. I checked Credits, but it doesn't show DM anywhere. I'm guessing it's still using DM Lite, even though I installed the newest Dios Mios WAD (http://crediar.no-ip.com/dwn.php) using WAD Manager 1.7

    If I were to pick one of the loaders, I would want USBLoaderGX as the UI is beautiful! But, if I can get texts to show on WiiFlow and it can load both GameCube and Wii, then I guess I can use that. Please, anyone know how I can fix either of these?

    EDIT: When I get home later today I will try this guys tutorial -

    How is your drive formatted? I believe all of the Gamecube loaders require FAT32.

    If you are really using USBLoaderGX 3.0 r1211 like shown in your video, then it's not the latest version and that's why it asks to use SD card.
    The installer should install 3.0 r1239
    or you can install it manually (download from my signature and extract/replace files on your SD/apps/ folder)
    You can check the installed version by going to the credit page.

    Then, you should try nintendont instead of DM or DML.
    it's easier, no installation, compatible with both SD and USB.

    2 partitions. 1 is FAT32 for GC, and the other is WBFS+ for Wii

    I followed the video and it worked. Problem was, I had some sort of USB Loader GX WAD installed so the channel WAD didn't go to the same app as the one in the HomeBrew channel. Not idea where it was going. But, it works great now, and I am very happy with it.

    Have a small question, I'm on 4.2U. Should I upgrade to 4.3U, is it worth it?

    Glad it's working for you, but watch out for WBFS partitions. They can get corrupted easily. I just use one FAT32 partition and put my wii games on it as .wbfs files. (Wii Backup Manager can handle that, too.)

    It's likely you had the USB Loader full channel installed. It uses the title code "UNLR" and the forwarder version that loads from the /apps/usbloader_gx/ folder is "UNEO". The full channel hasn't been updated in quite a while and I'm not sure when it will be.
