    Gamecube Saver, NuGaSa, and GCMM dont work at all. GCMM just gives me a blank screen saying "Choose your mode". What am I doing wrong?

    They just don't work with official memory cards, go buy an an unofficial mem card transfer the saves over to that and then use one of those programs on your new unofficial memory card.

    GCMM works.

    the trick is you have to put your mem card in slot2 and presto - it works.

    And only GCMM works. Those two other programms will create coruppted saves. I lost all my gamecube saves that way. -.-

    If you have a copy protected game (like F-zero gx), every program will create corrupted saves

    That shouldn't be a problem and like I said all my saves were corrupted. My entire GC-history and I certainly didn't only play protected games.
    If you search a while you will even find that it's known, that those two programs corrupt saves. Why you can still find them on wiibrew is beyond me.

    What the! So I have no backup of my FZGX save... :/
    So I expect, there is no way to back them up now, right?

    Are you guys certain? I still find the documentation of gcmm states that it won't work with nintendo ones, even if they are in Slot B.

    I'm not really sure
    I think it will work as long as you restore it to the mem card you got it from

    Seriously dude. Go to EB Games or Gamestop and get yourself an unofficial memory card. They should be cheap, especially since it most likely will be used. Or get one really cheap off Ebay too.
