hi there


sorry im totally new to this, and i can get my games running fine on the rom/emulator, no problems there.

But everytime i want to press the home button and go to the save option while playing a game, it keeps saying stuff liike error cannot open directory, and error cant save.

If you are running them from an SD card, make sure that it is not locked. This was happening to me yesterday and when I took out the SD card I found out that it had slipped into the locked position. If from USB, make sure the directory you are using is not set to Read-Only.

Hope this helps.

Well, the other thing it could be is that the default setting for the directory in the emulator could be set differently than how it actually is laid out on your SD card. Something as simple as a capital letter where it should be a lower case letter or a missing letter.

Try it this way (I'm not near my Wii right now, so I'm working off memory).

For Snes9x GX
Rom folder: sd://snes9xgx/roms
Save folder: sd://snes9xgx/saves
For this emulator, you can go in the options and change the default folder, but this is the folders the program will look for when you first start up the emulator.

For Wii64
Rom folder: sd://wii64/roms
Save folder: sd://wii64/saves
As far as I remember, there's no way to change the default folders, so make sure you get them right.

Hopefully this works.

    not sure. I haven't had that issue. the only computer related issue I've been having is with my isp and the smtp server getting authentication errors randomly. I'm going to have to call them again. this started happening again after changing my password.

    you may have to check the box that says "stay signed in." psx place used to have a problem like this for random people, including myself. that will prevent being logged out or it did anyway.
