    Hey guys, I just discovered the USB version of DIOSMIOS for the Wii, and I would really like to use it. I have also found the modded version of USBLoader GX that has DIOSMIOS built in, and I think that's the way I want to load my Gamecube games. Only problem is, I have been using Wiiflow for all of my USB loading, and I'm not sure how to make the switch. All of the Wii games that I currently have on the external hard drive have been copied over with WBFS Manager 3.0, and the drive is formatted accordingly. So at this point, I have a lot of questions:

    1. Is there any difference between the two loaders in terms of performance?
    2. All of my games currently on the external drive have been copied over with WBFS Manager 3.0, so will USBLoader GX be able to read them?
    3. I currently have a version of the d2x CIOS installed, will I need to change that or add something to it for the modded version of USBLoader GX to work?
    4. If I need to partition or reformat my HDD, is it possible to do so without losing the games currently on it?


    Thanks in advance for anyone who can answer.

    Stick with wiiflow. It has DIOS MIOS support in the newer versions, and doesn't have a history of bricking wii's.

    Either way, you'll need to reformat your drive to FAT32.

    1. I dont know

    2. yes

    3. no (unless you count DM)

    4. DM only supports FAT, so you will have to change.
    Converting WBFS -> FAT32 without data loss is possible (see sig)
