The original runs just fine on it. I tried resident evil the original and it runs.

Then there's a problem with your disc that's causing the drive to reset. Trying something else to make sure it's not the modchip : hold start while the gamecube boots, it should show a special menu.

ArchReaper450

How long do I hold it? I tried holding it from the start and nothing appears.

Could it be a bad copy even though the version is not loading up?

Before the gc logo fades out and the game starts, you can release it after it faded.

I should mention that this will cause the chip to upload more stuff to the gamecube so the led should turn on another time to indicate that it's doing that.

Nada, the version won't load up or any of the backups but everything else works fine. Idk where to look now, I've checked the soldering and the power, I've swapped out the card x3 already.

Streetwalrus

If you get to the menu then it's definitely not your soldering nor the code. Either your dvd drive is failing or your discs are crap. See this : http://www.gc-forever.com/wiki/index.php?title=Laser_Tuning

Noooooooo I feel like it's going to be the dvd drive or it would load the version up.

I'll clean it and report back if it changes anything.

Get on the chat, I'll try to see what I can do.

Edit : actually, not tonight. Going to bed now.

Err my earlier message didn't go though apparently. Well, thanks for the help, I got the games to load up by messing with the pot. None of them really worked, RE Remake and Metroid Prime got in to the game but always crashed. :P

Could it be due to being the wrong region? I forgot if playing different region games is possible on the GameCube due to different TV signal.

ArchReaper450

All the games I downloaded were American I'm still messing with the pot setting and we'll see if it goes though eventually.

Streetwalrus

It's exactly the problem I'm having, the GameCube is struggling with reading the discs. I gave up after a while since swiss + SD adapter is so much more convenient.

DJ Omnimaga

How large can the SD card be for the Gamecube? I remember that with the 84+ USB8x app, they couldn't be larger than a certain amout of megabytes.

Streetwalrus

There's no limit to the size. The largest cards currently sold are 128GB, so you can use that.

Snektron

You can actually buy 512Gb sd cards... for only €729.00 O.O (about $797 usd)
Legends say if you spam more than DJ Omnimaga, you will become a walrus...
