USB Loader GX

USB Loader GX is one of the available USB Loaders for the Wii. It features loads of customization possibilities, and can play games from USB, SD, and DVD.



Download the latest version from the official downloads page.

Extract the 7z file you downloaded with 7zip (or another compatible program). The apps folder from the zip should go in the root of your SD card.

You can now run USB Loader GX with the Homebrew Channel

Installing a Forwarder

If you want, you can download the forwarder channel and install it with a WAD manager.

This will give you a USB Loader GX channel in your Wii menu so you can launch it directly.

Ripping Games

USB Loader GX will automatically detect when a disc is inserted in the system and offer you to rip it to the hard drive.

You can also press the + icon on the bottom left (on the default theme) to get this menu.
