    Hi Dan,
    I did not understand a word you said, but….my son sold me a (gameboy?) xbox 360 last year. I bought a computer system to run it …. and it all sits in my basement wondering what it’s doing there. Any thoughts?

      Sure thing Kim, there’s a lot that you could do with it, including turning it into a media center (play movies or music) or playing backed up games off the hard drive. It’s a more powerful system than the Gamecube, but not nearly as elegant.

    Hello,

    Been looking for information on the mplayer-ce and GC. I have a Wiikey SD Card Adapter, XenoCG and GameCube. Is there a bootable disc with mplayer-ce that can be used to play video file from an SD card?

    Thanks

      Hi FerociousGC!

      That’s the same setup that I have right now. What discs are you currently booting, just backups? You can make any .DOL into a bootable disc if you have a drive chip (which you have). I haven’t done this for a while, but I could dig up some information if you’re interested.

        Hello dantheman2865,

        I just ran into my old post. I’m just booting backups. I burned the Swiss 0.3 ISO [swiss(ntsc).iso] twice on two different computers w/ DVD Burners. Mini DVD Discs won’t boot. Hangs on the GC intro screen. What am I doing wrong? Am I suppose to have the SD card inserted with files?

        Thx

          Are you referring to the .ISO that is included in the Swiss download? That should work really great; what are you using to burn it? I prefer IMGBurn.

            Both Win7 w/ ImgBurn and the other with CDBurnerXP at 2x speed. Using RiDATA mimi DVD-R (4x) discs. Wasn’t sure if I had to add something to the ISO to make it work. :/
