    you probably need to import them with a tool such as JKSV

    Download and install jksm (save manager). Afterwards put the save file on to your SD card in the jksm folder (if there isnt one, create one). Then boot up JKSM and import the save.

    Yeah I got JKSM. but doesnt it mean i need to create a savegame file for the game first? Also I think it needs to be in a very specific game folder.. ?

    Yeah, you have to boot the game first so it can create a save file and then you can import. Not sure if the save has to go in a specific file on the SD, apologies I haven't used it in a awhile.

    Easiest way to import save data for games in which you aren't familiar with the file structure:

    - Create a save backup of the game with JKSM
    - Navigate to SD:/JKSV/Saves/<gamenamehere>/
    - Find the file(s) relating to your save data
    - Replace whichever files are there with the one(s) you downloaded
    - Import the save backup with JKSM
