Loading save-state causes Dolphin to think memory card is corrupt
I start Z:WW and i can either load a savestate or load my savegame.
If i load the savegame everything's fine.
If i load the savestate, and then i try to save the game, i get a message

nono, this happened to me too.
It's caused when the memcard is formatted and you save the game after loading a
savestate. It's a memory card problem. Even if you create a new save file and then
load state and save it won't work.
Sadly, I have no idea on how to solve this.

Not sure if this helps, but if I load a game in ZWW and save, it's fine. If I save
using a save state, then immediately afterward try and save through the memory card,

This is not fixed completely.... I still get this problem with Metroid Prime 2 (NTSC if that matters at all)
I'll save the state at a point to try and do a trick/sequence breaking glitch in the game (some of them are really tricky, so save states really help.) and then load it many times until I get the trick right or past that part or whatever, I then get to a save room and go to save and it says it can't find the memory card in slot a.
This is fixed by simply saving it right there using a save slot in dolphin, closing dolphin, re-opening and open the game, then load the save slot, and save normally... it's like it just loses the memory card info somehow when doing multiple save/loads...

No, the memory card is fine, and I can save data to it like normal if I do what I said above, and all the other data is still there... It's just like it doesn't know where the memory card is anymore, as if you were playing the game on the real GC and pulled the memory card out in the middle of playing and then tried to save... I have not tried the eject/insert, I'll try that tonight.
