I have been trying to port my gamecube files into my wii u for nintendont...
memory card emulation is on...
i looked in the saves folder and created a save file with each gamecube game ID
ex...
mario party 5 = GP5E.RAW IN SD:\SAVE

so i got an error message that the data was corrupted.
i went ahead and allowed it to format it ,but i cannot find the file location now.
I went and tried another game directly from nintendont(mario kart) and created a save file.
I did not find a save file IN SD:\SAVE
I then removed the sd card created a save file for megaman x collection ,restarted the game and the save data was still there ...

So does anyone know where is this data being saved? ...its not in the SD:\SAVE folder ..
I have already deleted the cfg.bin , and did all the steps again .
Nintendont is creating save files but not to SD:\SAVE can anyone please help e figure this out ?

As long as I remember saves can be reached from virtual wii mode. Lower left "wii" icon. Some saves cannot be copied if your virtual wii is not hacked.

if your game isos are on usb nintendont saves on usb:saves if isos are on sd it saves on sd:saves

could've sworn you could import saves using dolphin, then use the raw image on nintendont. I think that's what I did, and all games are saved to the same raw image. you can choose to have it save individually or all to the same image, so you don't have to do that.

if your game isos are on usb nintendont saves on usb:saves if isos are on sd it saves on sd:saves
I dont think anyone is understanding my issue let me explain a bit differently

I used TeconMoon's WiiVC Injector for all my wii u gamecube installs .
All my games where installed through WUP installer GX to my wii U formatted usb drive .....

I have NOTHING in SD:\SAVE ..it is a completely empty directory

so where are the save file ??? I was under the impression that the GC games for the WII use nintendont to run , so where are the save files ? they are not on the SD:\SAVE nor in the usb or nand

if you are using wiivc injects your saves are in sd:saves either your games arent saving at all or you are looking in the wrong place like sd:wiiu/saves

its on the root and its called plural saves not save you must have memory card emulation turned on in the settings for games to save, and since you did injects i have no idea what settings you turned on, all injects always save into sd:saves
