The file with the character name you want to import goes in that folder

You need to create the subfolder called ME1 in the ME2/SAVE directory, of your user/my documents directory.

 

Then, you just place in that folder the savegame you want to import (usually, it is an autosave, since the game autosaves after you beat the game)
