Hi, unfortunately I don't have either a Wii or a GameCube any more but I have some old GC savegames on the GC card.

I do have a WiiU (and a Windows laptop!). Is there any card reader for GameCube cards? I see lots of references to GCMM but that requires a Wii which I don't have. I also see lots of SD card adapters which is the wrong way round? Just wondering if I need to get a Wii and hack it on order to read the card?

I've never come across a GC card reader before, so you might have to get a Wii/GC that can use Swiss+GCMM or find someone else that can convert the files for you.

I believe there is a way of soldering the connections of a GC memcard to an SD card to access it via a pc, but getting access to a Wii or GC with the necessary warez is probably safest and simplest.

Cheers, that's what I thought. No problem, I can pick up an old Wii off Ebay and hack that and then use GCMM. All good. :)
