I have bought the Triology-pack on CD. I launch the game via Origin. When I try to import my character from ME 1 into Me2 it doesn't find anything. How do I solve this?
Thank you in advance!

Did you completely finish ME1 before attempting to import into ME2? The game doesn't create the final import character until you have beaten Saren and finished the following dialogue. Same deal with ME2 -> ME3. The import character isn't created until you have finished the Suicide Mission and have survived.
Once ME1 is finished, open ME2, create New Character and then choose Import ME1 Character.
EDIT: I should mention that my experience is with X-Box 360 and PS3. It seems you're running on PC, so I may have part of the import instructions wrong.

Could you tell me how you did it? Im having the same issue. Dont know how to open that configuration tool. Thanks!
If you version of Mass Effect 2 doesn't launch with a splash screen, then you have to locate the config utility manually. Locate the folder where Mass Effect is installed. Then go to Binaries and open 'MassEffect2Config'. There's a button on the left about save games. After clicking it, a button appears called 'copy Mass Effect 1 saves' that allows you to browse to the folder containing your save files. The folder is usually Documents - BioWare - Mass Effect - Save. Once you're there, simply click OK. There's no fancy message or anything, but it should be fine now.

I downloaded Mass Effect from Origin and can't find any save files (are they in the cloud). I finished the game completely. I'm trying to also import my character into ME2, which I installed from a disc. The steps indicated here don't work. How do I get my ME 1 character into ME2?

I think that even if you allow cloud saving, your saves are stored locally as well. There has to be a BioWare folder under documents since it contains your config files. Are you able to locate that?

Ha! You're right, I seem to have 2 folders with ME files in them, one was in a different location and I found the save files. I will give that a shot. Thank you so much!!!
