Description

Trying to import a broken Wii save (not in the right format or otherwise corrupted) currently gives this error message:

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/521711075721478145/1081330588662902795/Capture.PNG

This makes the user (understandably) think that the error is in their NAND, rather than in the save they're trying to import. This should be improved.

Both EU saves here are corrupted and make for useful test cases: https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/wii/942008-mario-kart-wii/saves

Those EU saves give me an appropriate "corrupted or is not a valid Wii save" error message thanks to your PR: https://github.com/dolphin-emu/dolphin/pull/9409
Maybe some more recent change fixed the activation of that error message?
