    I bought and downloade The Legend Of Zelda Majora's Mask from the wii store and I was hoping to transfer a save game from gamefaqs. I put the file inside private---wii---NARE---and renamed it to data. It actually comes up on the wii system from my sd card but does not transfer when I try to transfer :/ it says data may not have been copied. Is there anything I can do to get this save file lol

    Have you ran the game once? I'm not sure about VC but I know that for Wii discount games you can't transfer save data without having ran the game.
