GameCube Game Saves with Dolphin/Nintendont Some saves work in emulation. But some don't?

So a while ago I decided to backup my GameCube saves by using GCMM on my Wii...all went well with that process. No issues. It backed up all my game saves, so I plugged them into Nintendont and Dolphin, and I tested various games with it. Results?

I tested SADX. Works like a charm. Paper Mario: Thousand Year Door? Yup, it's all there.

Then I come to Sonic Riders. I have two save files: 1 and 2. For some reason, save file 1 shows up as corrupted. Save file 2 works fine, though...so I plop in my Sonic Riders disc into my Wii and tested out save file 1. It's there and works perfectly fine on real hardware. Maybe GCMM ripped it wrong the first time? I try to rip it again, still no dice. I tried the RAW and GCI formats, neither makes save file 1 work in either Nintendont and Dolphin. But with real hardware it's fine.

Same story with SA2B: I have 11 save files but yet only file 6 works in Dolphin.

Any idea on why this happens and/or if there's a way to fix this? I'd really appreciate it; especially with the Sonic Riders save.

Here's the save files:

Thanks in advance.

I've done a bunch of stuff with GCN save files (I wrote the GCN MemCard Recover tool), so I'll take a look at this sometime tomorrow and see if there's anything obviously wrong with the save files.

The save file working on HW but not emulation seems odd, especially if it happens with both a RAW dump and individual files.

Any progress on looking into this? No worries if you've been busy.
