    ... Couldn't it be used to get save files that you'd otherwise need datel's powersaves for? Just wondering.

    Some are copy protected.
    Might be possible using the nand tool actually [​IMG]

    might be... but even if you could dump it on sd card, how would you put it back on the wii ?

    It could get the raw data. However, *.bin saves are encrypted, and we don't have the key. (Well, bushing and datel seem to have reverse-engineered it)

    Well, if they could write a program that copies gamecube saves to the memory card, I'm sure they could write programs that copy them to the correct folder.

    Actually, if you're refering to the prog that dumps the files unencrypted, I don't think it copies the saves. I can't find mine in the dump I made, anyway. Can't find my Message Board either (although that one could be in \WII_FS\SHARED2\WC24\MBOX\, but I couldn't find any indication in the files that it's actually my inbox).

    I was actually trying to get a discussion about this started over at Wiinewz ( http://wiinewz.com/forums/wii-hacking-home...o-kart-etc.html ) but I have only been met by the comments "just go to data management" so far. Anyways, if you go to wiisave.com there is a file for mario kart wii ( http://www.wiisave.com/index.php?dlid=1662 ) and another one for SSBB ( http://www.wiisave.com/index.php?dlid=1655 ). I downloaded the SSBB one and haven't had a chance to try it yet but it comes out as a "data.bin" and people are somehow reporting that it worked for them, other people can't figure it out. This most definitely is a real save file in its entirety as it is ~16MB. People, though, are mentioning it removes your FC's and might even change your own friend code. I've yet to see but will be testing it shortly. Regardless, it would be nice to be able to extract these save files somehow through this NAND file dumper. If anyone knows how or has any ideas of doing this not using an Active Replay or FreeLoader or whatever people talk about please write it in!
