    Ok, both the Wii and the Wii U has homebrew installed and I plan to use Savegame Manager GX to transfer the saves. Anyone know a better way?

    This will not work... Let me give you an example:

    I have Mario Kart Wii i bought in Japan, the game ID is RMCJ01, then I get my Mario Kart Wii i bought in the US, the game ID is RMCE01. They are 2 different game IDs for 2 different regions, so lets say you copy the Japanese save data to your American Wii, and you start up your American Mario Kart, the Japanese data will not show because you are playing the American version looking for the ID RMCE01

    But if you asking if the data can be copied, then yes, yes it can

    Will changing the name of the file to CE01 make it work? in my case i was never able to see the saves from my sd card with savegame manager gxm it could be that im using a wrong version not for vWii, what did you use? Good day people!
