Description

What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.

[Description here]
Attempting to use the "Card A" a "Card B" folder names for a GCI folder path is not allowed

What steps will reproduce the problem?

[Reproduction steps here]

Go to Settings -> GameCube -> Device Settings -> Slot A -> GCI Folder -> attempt to browse to a "Card A" folder path. This is not allowed and the error:

"‎The folder Card A does not conform to Dolphin's region code format for GCI folders. Please rename this folder to either USA, EUR, or JPN, matching the region of the save files that are in it."

occurs. This should be allowed since when no path is specified this folder is allowed to be used automatically by dolphin. The usecase I have is I would like to manually specify this path so that my saves are stored in the same place regardless of my dolphin instance on separate partitions. But Dolphin's path check does not allow me to specify this folder. Instead just specifying "USA" results in the save files being made inside "USA" and not the "Card A" path within "USA"

Is the issue present in the latest development version? For future reference, please also write down the version number of the latest development version.
yes
[Version number here]
5.0-21496

Is the issue present in the latest stable version?

[Yes/No and version number here]
Unknown

If the issue isn't present in the latest stable version, which is the first broken version? (You can find the first broken version by bisecting. Windows users can use the tool https://forums.dolphin-emu.org/Thread-green-notice-development-thread-unofficial-dolphin-bisection-tool-for-finding-broken-builds and anyone who is building Dolphin on their own can use git bisect.)

[First broken version number here (if applicable)]

If your issue is a graphical issue, please attach screenshots and record a three frame fifolog of the issue if possible. Screenshots showing what it is supposed to look like from either console or older builds of Dolphin will help too. For more information on how to use the fifoplayer, please check here: https://wiki.dolphin-emu.org/index.php?title=FifoPlayer

[Attach any fifologs if possible, write a description of fifologs and screenshots here to assist people unfamiliar with the game.]

What are your PC specifications? (CPU, GPU, Operating System, more)

[PC specs here]

Is there anything else that can help developers narrow down the issue? (e.g. logs, screenshots,
configuration files, savefiles, savestates)
