    [Savegame Manager GX Question] - How To Install data.bin Files Through SgM GX

    OK so I use Savegame Manager GX to extract and install game saves alot. However recently I've been browsing that Wii Save - Nintendo Wii Game Saves and have been wanting to install their saves. The game I'm trying to install a save for now, is Guitar Hero, however the save file (and the majority of save files on that site) are just data.bin files. I was wondering, since this is one of those weird online games that don't let you copy the save data over, how do I use Savegame Manager GX to install data.bin save files? Thanks!

    Well i dont know if this might work but i found it at and this is the method on how to install data.bin

    0.After downloading a save, you'll either get a plain old data.bin or a zipped file.
    1.If you have a data.bin, you have to place it in a folder structure on your SD card like so: \private\wii\title\GAME\data.bin (replacing GAME with it's corresponding game code from the game code list).
    2.If you get a zipped file, it most likely has all of it's folder structure in tact, so all you have to do is extract it to your SD card so it shows up like the above folder structure.
    3.Once you have the file in place on your SD card, you can then put the SD card in to your Wii
    4.go to your saved game(s) on your SD card (Wii Options > Data Management > Save Data > Wii > SD card tab), the saved game that you want and select Copy. Keep in mind that if you already have a save on your Wii that you're trying to replace, it wont overwrite it, you'll have to backup your save, then delete it off your Wii internal memory to be able to transfer the new one on.

    I dont know it might work or not, cuz i never use modify save file for any games currently unless if wanted to mess with it or upload to other ppl through other site.
