A: This is a limit of the GAMECUBEitself in that it will not allow anymore than 127 game saves, on any GAMECUBEMemory Card at any one time.

Q: I copied a save across and it appeared as "\" instead of the game name.

A: Delete the problem game save from the GAMECUBEUSB Memory Card and copy it over again.

If this fails, copy over 10 saves that don't exist on the GAMECUBEUSB Memory Card. Now copy the save you wish to use.

If the problem persists, delete the problem save and back up or copy any other game saves on the GAMECUBEUSB Memory Card to the PC Panel. Now erase the GAMECUBEUSB Memory Card. Copy the save you wish to use by itself to the GAMECUBEUSB Memory Card and this should solve the issue.

Q: My game refuses to recognize the GAMECUBEMemory Card.

A: Copy the save over to a normal GAMECUBEMemory Card and this should solve the problem.

Q: I've copied saves over from my Memory Card to the GAMECUBEUSB Memory Card using the GAMECUBE. When I load the save directly from the GAMECUBEUSB Memory Card it says it's corrupted but its okay on my original

Memory Card. Why?

A: This could be due to a variety of reasons. Delete the save and copy it across again. If this still fails to work, back up some of your saves from the GAMECUBEUSB Memory Card onto your PC and delete them. Now copy your save from your Memory Card to the GAMECUBEUSB Memory Card and this should solve the problem.

Q: The GAMECUBEwon’t allow me to copy my game save from my normal GAMECUBEMemory Card to the supplied GAMECUBEUSB Memory Card, why is this?

A: Unfortunately this is due to the game itself. Some games have protected game saves that cannot be copied from one memory card to another. However, if you save the game save directly onto the supplied GAMECUBEUSB Memory Card from the game, GAMESAVES For GAMECUBE will allow you to copy the game save to and from your PC.
