GTA4 save file problem

i have a porblem with GTA4 save files

i had to reinstall windows so i backed up my GTA4 save files

now when i place those save files back where they belong GTA4 wont accpt them

i guess this is some kind of security restricction from rock star that one cant run another's save game...

so is there any way that i can make my old save file working again...

Use xliveless mod.

no it aint working for me...

it gives some dll error....

may b cuz i have applied 1.0.4 patch of GTA IV

yeah i m facing similar problem..i cant go thru a mission due to some bug in game..i got save files frm my frnd but got same dll error when i replaced them wid my save game files...let me knw if u find any solution
