Emunand issue after trying to share saves across two Wiis
Thanks for taking the time to read this. Never asked for help before. I know this was a stupid move, I have an ageing Wii, and I bought a second Wii to use elsewhere which I have modded to be able to use my HDD which has backups (not pirated copies, all legit I have all retail games I bought). So I kind of reckoned that I could just plug my HDD in and play them using the save that I had earned on my old Wii. I realise that the emunand must be coded to the old Wii as it ask to start a new game and can't detect any saves.
So putting the HDD back on my old Wii, I was shocked to find the same issue - asking to start new games on all the games I tried so far. I am not sure what I have done. The saves are still there in savegame manager. And on the the new Wii, I never started a game and saved any data. Just testing really.
I was wondering if anyone has tried the same thing and had any advice on how I can at least use my saves on my old Wii? If I can get over this obstacle, I will just transfer to SD on the new Wii.
Thanks in advance for any help. Nothing has changed on the first Wii, no update of Cioses or apps at all.
I managed to restore saves on first Wii by doing a wii update. This let me actually play games from loader (had remote synch issues). Then I reinstalled the d2x v8 final 249 cios then I can access my saves! Learnt my lesson now ha.
