    I have an Animal Crossing City Folk save on Dolphin. I used the save export tool and got an oddly named .bin file, renamed to data.bin to look like any other game save for the Wii. put file on SD card, started up Save Game Manager GX, found the file on the card but the program didn't regonize the file as a Wii save. Please Help. Thanks in advance, TyBlood13
    P.S. if this is in the wrong section of the forum, let me know.

    I'm not an avid user of dolphin, but you should be able to get a proper Wii save by right clicking the game title in your game list in dolphin and choosing Export Wii Save. There's also an Import option somewhere in the menus to convert saves you copied off the Wii into dolphin format.

    Did you try copying it using the Wii System Menu's built in save game copying functionality? (The thing in the Settings menu)

    I did it for another game.

    You must put the bin file (without renaming it) in the right folder used by Save Game Manager GX because it uses a folder for every game. If you don't have such folder or you don't know wich folder is among the other games, you can export the save with Save Game Manager GX and then search for the last file created on the SD.
