My Fallout Fellout.

As few may know, my harddrive on my PC slowly died a few weeks, maybe a month by now. I backed up almost every single file witha beefy external harddrive while the Old HDD still had a lick of functionality. I now have a new harddrive and a majority of content has been restored back to original local.

I backed up the entire game installation, and the save files located in the My Documents.

However when I launch Fallout 3, there is no option to LOAD a game.

How can I get FO3 to recognize the imported save files?
