    Just scoured the forums with no luck and googling it found me no results either...

    How can I copy the file? the powersave saves as bin files instead of .sav file under the gateway files shown...


    How can I access the root of the card or something?


    Thanks for any help - EUR zone, by the way

    Well, just figured it out on my own.

    For anyone trying, first backup the savefile from the zelda game.

    Then go to your user folder and find the power save folder.

    Let the powersave software run in the background

    Copy the save file from the gateway 3.1 ultra folder

    Rename the file to EXACTLY the same as the other file (including changing the extension from .sav to .bin)

    it says it has the same name - ignore it

    delete the original savefile┬┤

    rename the file (delete the (1) in the name)

    restore the save file in the power save software

    run the zelda game and ENJOY

    I have no fucking idea.
    You wouldnt have been able to do this as Powersaves prevents the restoration of edited saves.


    EDIT: Nevermind, i was under the assumption PS cannot restore edited saves, well, I was wrong haha
    (unless this OoT save isnt 'edited' per say)

    with powersaves, I just renamed the file AQEP44ef8739_2015-03-11_22-46-55_(Gateway).bin

    instead of .sav

    shows up as unknown save, still restores perfectly fine :)

    As far as I know, it works. Just booted the gateway menu.

    i'm just wating to test the gateway card it with it as I'm copying some files to the micro sd.
