I have about 20 Wii games already on my external hard drive that I run on USB Loader GX, but I want to backup my GameCube games as well. However, it won't let me because it says something like "this is not a Wii disc". How can I get it to let me backup my GameCube games? Do I need to reformat my hardrive and lose all my games?

Hi! I've got over 50 Gamecube games loaded through USB Loader, pretty easy set up, just time consuming to add games to.

Make sure your hard drive is formatted Fat32

Create a folder on the root called "games"

Set up folders in this structure: "Game Name" ex. The Legend of Zelda The Wind Waker

Copy your game image (.gcm/.iso) into the folder you created

Rename the image "game.iso" for 2 disk games name the second disk "disk2.iso"

Rinse and repeat for all the games you want

Plug your HDD back into the Wii

Launch USB Loader GX

You should now see the GC games appear in the onscreen list

Start Playing!

My USB Loader is on 3.0 rev1256 (going to update to rev1260 tonight) Nintendont 3.38 (I think?) Hasn't failed me yet! A Gamecube controller is recommended, but a Wii Classic controller is another option as well. Hope this helps.

How do I create and edit folders after I format the hardrive? My computer doesn't seem to let me view it after I've formatted it.

Can the game id be literally anything or do i have to find specific ids for every game?
