    Ok, I noticed this in the WiiSX beta 2 readme: '* ISOs can be .bin/.cue (Make sure .cue contains _relative_ directory!), .img, or .iso format'
    What does the piece i've highlighted in bold mean? I believe this is related to why I can't get my FF:VIII.cue working.
    Any help will be greatly appreciated in the present and the future, of that i'm sure. A reward? Well, here's a *taster*. Mmmmm

    You have to put both files (.bin and .cue ) in that directory : usb or sd:/wiiSX/isos/

    load the .bin files and it should work

    You're a god amongst men. Thanks for the clarification!
    The cake is well and truly deserved...but sadly, it was too delicious to resist! The cake is no more. [​IMG]

    No one seems to have answered you properly here. If you open the .cue file in a text editor (eg. notepad) the first line points to the location of the bin file. this might be something like C:\ISOs\Blah\Game.BIN. Relative directory means that if you have your cue in SD:\PSX\Games\ and for some insane reason have the BIN file in SD:\PSX\Games\Bins then your cue should say \Bins\Game.BIN It's almost not worth saying because no one in their right mind would seperate the bin and cue files or have cue files which list a directory prior to the bin filename but there you have it.

    you should probably hold on to the cue files though. They'll be needed when cdda sound is supported
