Save Backup Guide by A.J.
This guide will help you with understanding how to backup your Wii
save files and games. It contains a list of a lot of games and their
3 character long "game codes" to help identify which save folder is
for which game.

1. About Wii Saves
You can backup Wii saves via an SD card. You can then transfer them
onto any PC that has an SD card slot. The folder hierarchy of the SD
card is private\wii\title\ with all of the save folders in the title
folder. In each save folder you may have 1 or 2 files. The file
content.bin is a WiiWare or Virtual Console game and the file
data.bin is a game save file. You might have both in the same
folder. Regular Wii games should just have a data.bin file in each
folder. The folders have 4 character long names and it is difficult
to know which folder is for which game. This guide will explain.

The first character corresponds to the type of game the save is for:
        R/S: Regular Wii Games
        W: WiiWare Games
        H: Wii Channels
        F: Virtual Console (NES)
        J: Virtual Console (SNES)
        N: Virtual Console (Nintendo 64)
        M: Virtual Console (Genesis)
        L: Virtual Console (Master System)
        P: Virtual Console (TurboGrafx-16)
        Q: Virtual Console (TurboGrafx-CD)
        E: Virtual Console (Neo-Geo)
        C: Virtual Console (Commodore 64)
For example: all Virtual Console (SNES) save files will start with
J. The next 2 characters are for the specific game. The final
character corresponds to the region the save is for: E/N = North
America, J = Japan, P/D/X = Europe. For example: the name of the
folder for the Japanese NES game StarTropics would be FC6J.

Anyway, the data.bin files can be traded and will work as long as
the 4 character folder name is the same and the region is correct.
However, content.bin files are encoded to be console-specific which
means they will only work on your specific console and cannot work
on anyone else's. This is to prevent people from stealing games.

The list, although large, may never be complete. So if you would
like to contribute it will be appreciated. Simply find my contact
information in the Contact Me section, then send me an e-mail. In
the e-mail, list the game codes and games they correspond to.
Please also supply a name that I can use in the Thank-Yous section.
