    Hello Everyone.
    Thank-you for reading my post, I'm pretty sure everyone has seen this million of times.. but i checked couple of places in the forum and it didn't answer my question. My problem is that i get a (ret error: -1) when i am trying to install a save. So i am just so curious, does this work on wii with chipped installed or wii that has the Zelda hack install? Thank you and i hope it get to work.

    There's no need to have the Twilight Hack installed to use the save game installer (unless you don't have the HomeBrew Channel). The error is due to your SD card. Format it to either FAT or FAT16.

    Bowser i formatted my SD card to FAT and it still gives me an error (ret error: -1) is it the way my sd card is laid out?

    -Root of SD CARD
    -apps
    -private
    -wad
    -wiisaves
    -boot.elf *boot.elf from the "save game installer"*

    Why are you adding it as a wad? Do what they said above, the ROOT folder is the main one.

    I use these to extract my Animal Crossing Savedata EDIT IT with ACtoolkit and NPC to create Texture hacked Animal neighbors then it allows me to install my edited savedata using savegame installer [​IMG] THIS WORKS FOR ANY GAME YOU ONLY NEED A GAMECUBE PAD AND THE DVD (backup will do fine) OF THE GAME YOU WANT TO ALTER THE SAVE OF....

    So if i want to extract/install the savedata of anial crossing i put in the dvd-r of accf and press A to extract/install the savedata...
