    you should be able to copy from your sd cart to your wii using the normal method, in the data management
    because there is only copy-prevention to your sd cart, not to your wii

    did you already played it?
    you need to play the game first, make a savefile, go to the data management, delete your save and then you can copy the other save from your sd cart, backup or original doesn't make a difference

    or if you haven't played the game, you have to place it in a folder structure on your SD card like so: \private\wii\title\GAME\data.bin (replacing GAME with it's corresponding game code)

    Then just transfer to the Wii

    you always need that structure, but you cant copy a savegame from a game you haven't played before, safety meassure from ninty, some no one would be able to copy home-made save games the wii [​IMG]

    For the savegame installer, you do need an original copy, other than that, these guys are right, you should be able to copy it right over using the wii menu. If that dosen't work, then try takeing the No-Copy protection off, with either Backup Loader Gamma's reloader, or with preloader...

    first delete the save from your sd, then use the rebooter option of geckoOS, copy the save from your wii to your sd, from sd to computer, and put the save you downloaded on your wii, and you should be able to copy it

    in the menu of geckoOS, you first need to click rebooter options, and remove nocopy protection, then press b to reboot and then you should be able to copy it
