    Corrupt memory card fix help.

    Okay well my gamecube memory card (That I have EVERY game save that I've ever done on for GC.) got corrupted and I was thinking of how to fix it and I keep running into one more block after another. Well I thought back to how I fixed my external (Flash based) hard drive a while back and thought "Hey, that might work.". The fix where you type chkdsk in the command line to fix the corrupted data. Okay well I can't very well do this on the wii normally of course and I haven't found any kind of application to help me. I think that if I could access the card over the network with my windows computer and run chkdsk /f over wifi then maybe I could save the data. Does anyone know of a way to make the data or rather the drives (Storage) on the wii accessible to a computer on your network?

    I looked all over the internet and saw so many people having the same problem with no solution.

    I did a small search, was unable to find any adapters that would let you interface the card with you pc. The only thing that looks promising is NuGaSa - WiiBrew, which dumps save from gc card to sd- but your card is corrupted so? Also I don't think that chkdsk will help at all as the gc card file system is not that of windows- it would not recognize the file system. If you could find an adapter it could be possible to somehow do a rawdump of the data and transfer it to an other card, but this is a big time wishful thinking. It may also be possible to access the data using one of the wii linux in some fashion, again- big stretch.

    Best of luck.

    Yea, I've already tried Nagusa but that won't even read that a card is there. I tried linux as well but I don't really know how to use it well enough to really do anything, besides that though, I'm not sure if I'd be able to save the data that way.... I looked it up online and only found one solution with linux users and it was to use windows chkdsk. If I can at least get it to connect, it's at least worth a try.

    Find out how to mount the gc card in linux. There should be a linux equivalent to chkdsk, or just make a img of it, and try to write that to another. Your in a pickle for sure, best of luck.

    Have a look at this, says supports gc memory cards.
    Wii Linux v0.4

    I've already done my research on that and I didn't find anything that could be an equivalent to chkdsk for linux, although I'm sure there is, I just can't find it. Would the wii linux replace the wiis normal operating system? And I think I'd need some help with that, I never learned to figure out linux because I've always needed windows to run the games I play. Thanks a lot for your help by the way. Nobody's really responded to any of my other posts.

    it is a homebrew app. It creates a linux partition on the sdcard. It does not change the wii in anyway.

    Yeah I found it, I got linux bash shell from the homebrew browser but it does NOT support gamecube memory cards unfortunately. Actually after my memory card got corrupted and I installed this I wasn't able to backup or restore my save files anymore either... I don't understand why though.


    What I did with the linux was that I ran the command
    cp -r /media/memcardA /media/slot0
    Which if the memory card would load should have copied the data from the memory card to my SD card, right?

    I've been looking into it further and I've found some more interesting things. I've found that the files did copy but they're in linux format so I can't view them. So I went and downloaded a linux emulator for windows and something to be able to copy the linux files to windows. I don't know how well that will work but when I looked at the directories on the wii linux, it said all the files I copied were there. I'll update my post when I check it out.

    I've already tried that program, so far nothing's coming up. I'm trying to use cygwin as an emulator for windows.

    Okay, no files are coming up on the list still.
