    Sorry this is posted under Wii, I couldn't find a Gamecube section.

    My 1019 memory card corrupted, apparently is "damaged" (most likely from my Wii overheating it) and won't play save files. I used my media launcher to transfer the save files over to a different, working memory card, but it still says the save file is corrupt. Is all hope lost? All of my pokemon are on my corrupted save file of colosseum :(

    Any help at all would be much appreciated!

    i hate to say it but, all hope is lost probably. once its corrupted that's it. no saving it :(
    if u dont believe me just try google, i dont think you'll find anything helpful

    the only thing i can is, if you can, back up your saves onto another card (your most important ones) for next time

    EDIT - looks like i spoke too soon

    GCN MemCard Recover is only designed to recover files from a memory card with a corrupt filesystem. It can't fix corrupted save files individually, since most file formats aren't known. (Those that are known are usually only partially known, enough for basic tinkering.)

    tl;dr, it won't be able to help you fix your corrupted save files. Sorry about that.

    My F-Zero GX save files are corrupted but all my other games save files seem OK so I guess I'm stuffed then. I should have got an official memory card instead of a cheap Play store branded one.
