You simply disassemble the Gamecube console (DOL-001 and DOL-101), remove the DVD drive and replace it with this GC Loader circuit board.

Basic Usage:

FAT32 format a 4GB to 1TB memory card. Place an ISO file on the memory card called boot.iso and insert the memory card. Use a program such as GUIFormat to format large Fat32 memory cards.

If you would like to take advantage of a full menu, Swiss is needed. Simply place Swiss on the memory card called boot.iso. Drag your other homebrew and backups to memory and insert it in the GC Loader. Swiss will automatically boot and you will have access to your library.


The Latest version of Swiss r743 supports the GCLoader and can be downloaded from the github. Make sure to you choose the correct region for your gamecube.

Write support to the GCLoader is not 100% working. This means to use features in Swiss, such as force resolution a separate SD card device is needed, such as an SDGecko or SD2SP2 to store these settings. Write support will be added very soon to the GCLoader so these extra devices will not be needed in the future.

Clean Rip

This software can used to rip your existing library to SD.
Priacy is not condoned and this product shall not be used for this purpose.


Many titles have been tested but there might be some issues that still exist that we have not found. The firmware is easily updated so if there are any problems they will be fixed. We expect and strive for 100% compatibility.


Simply tear down the Gamecube unit with screws, swap the DVD Drive with the GC-Loader and reassemble. A 4.5mm gamebit driver is needed to remove the gamecube case. A gamebit driver can be purchased when checking out if you need one.

Known Issues:

Write support to the GCLoader - This will allow Swiss patches to work without SDGecko or SD2SP2


Updating is very simple, just drag the update file onto the memory card and launch the update. Newest update files can always be found here:
