    Was it formatted for the Wii first? Not sure you can do what you are trying. I know you can't on the 360, they tie the save to your gamertag, I'd guess the Wii ties it to your console friend code...

    Where did you download the save from?
    The file has to be titled "data.bin", and it has to be under a specific folder structure.
    I made a thread about it awhile ago, here's the link:
    http://www.wiichat.com/nintendo-wii-hardware/43754-transferring-save-files.html

    The save game has to be on the SD card in this folder structure:
    \private\wii\title\GAME TITLE\data.bin

    GAME TITLE refers to the code for that specific game. The code for RE4 is RB4E or RB4P. If you're game is NTSC (american) use RB4E, if it's PAL (european) use RB4P.

    The only games you can download and play on the Wii are games you downloaded FROM the Wii

    well technically i have, i had it once for my PS2 and i had everything unlocked but i had lost my ps2 ver and when i found it, it was all scratched and it froze when i got to the
    cabin part with the big fight.

    Click on the SD card icon in your my computer folder. On the SD card, create a folder called "private", in that folder, create a folder called "wii", in there, create a folder called "title", in there, create a folder called "RB4E" (If you live in the US or Canada) or "RB4P" (if you live in Europe or Aus), copy and paste the file titled data.bin in the last folder created.

    It's really not that complicated.
