    What are you wanting to convert? The games or the saves?

    Just install Priiloader and turn on the region free hacks. Simple.

    Use SGM GX and extract the saves from both regions. Keeping the USA banner.bin, copy over all other data from the PAL save.

    ???
    If this doesn't work what W hat suggested then send me the save you want to convert to ntsc and one empty ntsc save file, then I'll try to convert it.

    I used Wiigionfree in the past and it does what you are looking for.
    There are other ways to achieve what you want, but this is what you are looking for.

    Empty means that you start a new game to create a savefile on your wii.
    If you don't create a save file for the destination game then Savegame Manager GX won't let you copy from SD to Wii.
    Maybe this method is not working anymore


    Edit: That method worked on older Savegame Manager GX, I guess now that there is an index file with NAND path it won't work anymore, so you just copy files from PAL folder to NTSC-U folder like W Hat said.

    If you have a file named fe_us.dat in the NTSC-u folder, then I guess yes you will have to rename it.

    It could have a different structure and content (like PAL usually have language selections, while USA only have English) so such savegames won't be compatible.
    You'll have to try to know.
