    My Super Mario Sunshine .GCI save I got from GameFAQs does copy, but it says that the file is corrupt can someone help me out here? Please? (and yes, I renamed it to A.GCI and put it in the right folder)

    It has something to do with a homebrew app, and homebrew has something to do with hacking (It's in the forum description).

    Double check if it's the right region, compare other saves from super mario sunshine in a hex editor to see if the header is bad. If it's a .gcs file for that gameshark save device, it will work after modifying a few bytes and chopping off others. too lazy to go into specifics right now...

    I don't know where the header is, I know nothing about hexadecimals.
