This ELF allows you to copy a Gamecube save file from the front SD slot to either your Slot A or Slot B Memory card.

Note: This program will crash after the save has been copied, however it will work. Use this program at your own risk.

Usage

You need

  • SD card
  • Way of loading the ELF
  • GCI save file
  • Gamecube controller
  • some way to access sd-card on computer

Download whatever .GCI file you want (there are plenty scattered around the Internet) and make a folder in the root of your SD card called gc_saves. Place the .GCI file inside of that folder, and rename it so that the filename (not including extension) has one or two characters eg A.GCI or ZZ.GCI. Put the SD card back in the Wii and load the ELF. Only one .GCI should be in your folder at a time. Make sure you do not have a previous save file for the game saved on the memory card you're transferring to.

Follow instructions and after the data has been copied, it should go to a screen with a lot of crap everywhere Ignore it, it means nothing. You can't do much except for turning off the Wii at that point.

Notes

"USB Memory Adapter Save" saves should always be .GCI. If you see a save you want that is a .SAV file, there are working converters around.

Future plans

  • GC Mem Card to front SD writer
  • improved GUI
  • allowing more than one .GCI to copy
  • Wiimote support
