    Question How can I back up GCN saves onto a SD card?

    I have a fully softmodded Wii with everything I have working. I was, however, wondering if there is a Wii Homebrew that will allow me to back up and restore my GCN saves to and from an external drive or SD card. I am running out of memory on my Memory Card and I'm hoping someone can help me.

    Btw, I should probably mention that I have been searching on this site and across the web to no avail. So if there is something out there, then a link will suffice. In advanced, thank you.

    Is it an official Nintendo card or 3rd party card?

    The program you need depends on if its Nintendo made or not.

    Edit:
    This one will work on 3rd party cards (ie MadCatz and other NON Nintendo brands):

    If you have a Nintendo official card you'll need a different program.

    Yes, it's an official MC. I just found GCMM on the Homebrew Browser and I am about to try it now.

    That probably won't work, unless its been updated to unlock Official cards, which it couldn't do previously. I will see if I can find you a link to the modded version of ctr-gcs which can backup official cards.

    Edit: Here you go, this will allow you to backup data from an official card:

    Beware; it may* cause corruption if you try restore data TO the card. Backing up is safe, but be careful with restoring.

    *the author has stated it's possible it may corrupt memory cards when trying to restore data to them but no one has made any such complaints. Even still you do so at your own risk.

    GCMM let me back up saves from the official card, but I haven't tried to restore yet. And how do I install ctr-gcs onto the Wii? I'd do some searching but I have to give up trying for the night.

    Just put it in the apps folder on your SD card.


    But if GCMM works for you there's no need to try something else.
