    I've extracted a saved game: The Last Story from my Wii and i would like to use it on Dolphin Emulator.

    But a got 2 files:
    banner.bin and savedata.dat

    When i tried with the banner.bin i got a header file error =(

    How could i import this .dat to Dolphin?

    Thank you!

    The save file import option in Dolphin is for the official encrypted save format used by the System Menu; these have a .bin extension so you must have confused it with banner.bin which is totally different. Simply get a copy of the save with the System Menu and try again.

    In addition, assuming it is the NTSC version, it should be as simple as manually copying those files to "title/00010000/534C5345/data/" in Dolphin's nand directory.
    Or use the search option in your OS to look for those files and replace them, banner.bin is just the banner with info; it's always the same so no need to overwrite it.
