Re: Gamecube lens and potentiometer

Definitely try various media and burners. My gamecube works best with Esperanza miniDVD's burned on laptop's built in DVD burner. None of my Ritek's discs burned on some recommended BenQ burner works.

Re: how to play wii games?

I used to play my Wii games through external DVD drive since I haven't got HDD back then. Check uLoader, I believe this was the name of that homebrew.

What is the current state of IDE-EXI?

Hi,
I was wondering if it's a good idea to make IDE-EXI for myself. How is the compatibility and reading speed? Does it work comparable to disc drive?

BTW. I remember that some time ago megalomaniac and emu_kidid were talking about upcoming big announcement for GC scene. Is is still the case?

Re: GameCube Memory Card & SD Gecko Diagrams

Genuine, high quality memory card looks like this:

Maybe they cheaped out on these 1019 blocks memcards.

EDIT:
It's fake. It was discussed on gc-forever before: viewtopic.php?f=26&t=2474

Re: GameCube Memory Card & SD Gecko Diagrams

I doubt this is a genuine one. It looks really crappy inside. I don't think Nintendo would place that nasty black blob instead of using real ICs.

Re: still 2 questions with sd cards with Wasp fusion/swiss

Even if it's possible (it is) you still need to get that custom MX chip which is present only in official GC memory cards.

Re: Main analog stick "moving up" problem

If you hold the joystick when you turn on the GameCube, the system will read the direction as neutral. Hold the X, Y, and Start buttons together for 3 seconds to recalibrate the controller. If the problem persists, most likely analog stick needs to be replaced.

Re: Why some discs work and others don't?

I'm using the same TDK discs. I'd recommend trying burning them on different burner. All TDK discs, burnt on some cheap DVD burner in my laptop work with no DRE's.

Re: Plug and play drive replacement adapter Idea

Awesome idea. V6 is really great product as it's not that hard to solder and it eliminates neccessity to remove drive socket from the motherboard. Would you share pcb files?

Re: Simplest way to run HomeBrew and backups?

There is probably a short underneath. Make wire installation, you can use alternative points on the already damaged unit:

But probably it would be a better idea to give it to someone to do it for you... :)

Don't give up with that Xeno! It's easier to install it with wires. There are alternative points if you messed up, no worries.

Re: Whats the Best

I was curious because WKF is expensive in my country (it costs more than GC itself) and hard to find. Does SDGecko have the same compatibility as IDE-EXI?

Re: Whats the Best

How does IDE-EXI/SDGecko work? What stops it from getting 100% compatibility? Sorry for lame question.
