    I have a save file I want to copy from my SD card to the memory card using Gamecube Saver (please point me to a updated/better program if possible), however, the save file is .SAV, not GCI. I want to use MaxDrive Save Converter (again, please point me to a updated/better program if possible), but my PC/OS doesn't support it or something. I start it up and it just closes out as soon as I start it up (I've tried "run as administrator"). So, if the program runs correctly on YOUR computer, can you convert it for me? SAV to GCI, remember.

    Programs I've talked about in this thread:

    Gamecube Saver
    MaxDrive Save Converter

    The save file can be downloaded here.

    Thanks?

    Move if in the wrong section.

    What would the command be then? And how would I find out if it's a cli app or not?

    not every program is designed to run by just double clicking it. drag the exe into a cmd window and press enter and see if it tells you anything

    Nothing happens. You can't drag it in.

    So it would be:

    mdsc.exe -s2g

    ?

    I tried it, but it said:

    The syntax of the command is incorrect.

    apparently you dont understand the whole shell syntax... but that's OK, until you start programming.

    not a problem - just a simple syntax error.
