you can't do it with SDload since it isn't meant for memory cards. there is another loader (samson's loader iirc) that was written for memory cards. you still need an AR though. check this out:

Thanks for the link, but as i don't have PSO or a BBA yet, i am thinking the SD will be the cheaper, easier route.

Why hack up a perfectly good mem card to make an SD adaptor when you can use a regular mem card itself?


First...you dont have to hack it up..some simple kynar wire and an hour of your time is all it takes to build your own adaptor...the memory card will still function as always.

Second...it is way easier to just drag and drop your multiple dols, anacondas, gcos, demos, homebrew..Via PC SD-reader..Under a Windows enviroment.. takes only seconds!

Third...SDcard can have huge amounts of storage.

Fourth...If your gonna do it...Do it it right.

So far the SDcard is the best..And I have the Viper, BBA, PSO, And Memcard With Sampson Loader.

The SDcard is the most versatile and supported of the bunch!

Goodluck!

Just to verify...

I don't need the BBA in order to use the SDLoader, unless i'm planning on backing up over network, correct?

yes, correct. i though you already had a BBA so that's why i recommended the memory card trick. if you don't have one, the SDload method is best for you. btw, a BBA is still quite useful even if the streaming days are over.

You need the BBA only if you wanna rip your own games.

exactly but you can also use ctr-gcs to manage/backup your mem cards which can be useful if you don't have much space left. and who know what you'll be able to do in the future

Another queston....

I plan on starting on my SD Reader today and had an idea

Instead of buying 2 sd readers (one for PC, one to hack up for GC) why not just buy one, solder my wires in, but leave it intact so that it can still be plugged into my computer for DOL dumps.

Will this work??

Also, has anybody experimented with (or knows of ) a length limitation on the wires between the sd reader and the GC Memcard? I ask because i plan on making my sdreader detachable from my memcard (easier storage, transportation, etc.)

Why not get a USB Memcard from the GC from Lik-sang?

Because with the sd you can store up to 1gig of roms,dols,OS's,ect...It's very easy to use, just drag and drop...And when your bored with gc just delete or backup everything and use for pc related things. SD cards are pretty handy.

My built-in sd adaptor has wires 4 inches long with no problems...

basically you need a couple of things:
1) An original copy of the Action Replay disc
2) A SD-Card (any size)
3) An SD-Card Reader for your PC
4) A Gamecube memory card, any size / brand
5) small wires, soldering iron, small phillips screwdriver
6) GCOSv1.4.zip (GCOS DVD reader files), sdload.zip (SD loader)

"full" said it best:

GCOS feature: Play backups and originals from every region!
I juz wanna clarify some points

with SD-card Reader + AR + Gcos you can play backup right?
I dunno how to rip my own game and dun want too.
Backup means - download Gamecube games from torrent site - right?

Many thanks

Actually, they're about the same. Less solder spots for a gamecube, but routing cables and plugging in stuff takes up the rest of the time. But you don't have to worry about tiny ass via's with the gamecube smile.gif
