rioght, i've tried GCMM but i dont know where the hell to put the .gci save files on the card, i tried root, gcmm folder on the root, and thats all lol then i was gonna try mcbackup beta 0.1, but that boot.dol is not a valid wii application, leads me to believe that its an older dol coded like an elf, which means it won't run on my version of HBC... so i renamed it to .elf and tried to convert it using the elf to dol converter from wiibrew... wouldnt convert. finally i used GC saver, not a valid wii application because it's an improperly coded .elf for the newer HBC. so i elf to dol it and it loads up this time. and if even finds the save that i have in the GC_SAVES folder on the root of my SD card. then it found tales of symphonia save, pressed A to restore and then got an error that it couldnt be copied. i'm goin mad here XD want the save to unlock extras on ToS: dawn of the new world and since i dont have the game this is the only way to do it XD thanks anyone that can help the only thing i can think of is that i converted the save from a .sav to a .gci so that these damn apps would work in the first place. annoying... EDIT: The error i'm getting is 'f_stat failed()' or something.
