March 31, 2013 // 8:26 am - Following up on my Memory Card Converter v2.0 and Memory Card Converter v3.0 for PS3, today I present Memory Card Converter v3.5 for PS2Classics PS3 Command-Line GUI.

Download: MemCardConv_v3.5.rar (6 MB) / MemCardConv_v3.5.rar (Mirror)

Fixes the major "Invalid" error, now most saves should work, except those with time stamp issues...

Let's get started.

1. Convert your game with PS2iso2pkg; REMEMBER THE GAME ID. That's how you find it on your storage media (PS2UXXXXX).
2. Under "Game", navigate to "Saved Data Utility (PS2)," and delete the savedata for your PS2 game.
3. Load your converted PS2Classic at least once on your PS3, then quit when you see the PlayStation 2 logo.


4. Quit back to the XMB. You should have received no errors.
5. Under "Game", navigate to "Saved Data Utility (PS2)," then scroll to your PS2 savegame data.
6. Press triangle on your savedata, and select "Copy."
7. Insert your storage media (i.e. a thumb-drive), and copy the data to it. Overwrite if necessary.


1. Connect your storage media to your computer. Navigate to drive:/PS3/EXPORT/PS2SD/PS2U[Game ID]
2. Copy SCEVMC0.VME to the "orig_VME" folder of the GUI tool.

3. Run VMEconv.exe
Click the Decrypt tab
Select Decrypt VME, and select your VME in orig_VME
Save as SCEVMC0.PS2 in the PS2 folder.

4. Run SaveBuild.exe - Note - you may have to open PS2save-builder manually with admin rights; it is located in "tools"
Click "Edit > Add File", and browse to the folder of your savegame.
It will look something like "mc0:/BASLUS-21490"
Import every file from that directory into the tool. (i.e. BASLUS-21490/icon.sys , BASLUS-21490/config , etc)

Now edit the Root/ID field to match the name of the folder (i.e. Root/ID = BASLUS-21490)
Go to "File > Save as..." and select "Save as file type: X-port2 (*.xps)" and save the file as your Root/ID (i.e. BASLUS-21490.xps)
(The program will ask you to save the file inside of your savegame folder, save it somewhere like your desktop)

You can just export your PS2 savegames from uLaunchElf into a PSV container, which allows for timestamp verification saves

5. Run X2Pconv.exe
Select "Open", and find your XPS that you saved in step 4
Click "Save" and save it as a .PSU

6. Run MyMC.exe
When the program starts, it will ask you to open a .PS2 file; Navigate to and select MemCardConv/PS2/SCEVMC0.PS2
Click "File > Import..." and select the .PSU you created in set 5

7. Rename your PS2
Inside of the PS2 folder, rename SCEVMC0.PS2 to SCEVMC0.VMC

8. Run VMEconv.exe
Click the Encrypt tab
Select Encrypt VMC, and select your VMC in PS2
Save as SCEVMC0.VME in new_VME


1. Copy the New VME in the new_VME folder to your external drive (external drive:/PS3/EXPORT/PS2SD/PS2UXXXXX/SCEVMC0.VME)
2. On your PS3, plug in your external drive and go to the Game portion of the XMB, and select "Saved data Utility (PS2)"
3. Select your external drive and copy over the new savegame
4. You're good to go, load up your game good luck

Woo. Only took 6 hours

I found a solution. What I had to is after I put the .psu save on to the .ps2 memory card, I then drag the .ps2 file to a update_vmc_hashes.exe I found online so that it updates the file hashes. Then I change the extension from .ps2 to .vmc and encrypt the file to .vme. It worked!

I've followed all the directions and I keep getting the "save game is corrupted error code" (0x80028f24). What I've been trying to do is have my PS2 game saves of GTA LCS and VCS onto the PS2 classics versions of those games on my PS3.

The only thing I did differently was getting the PS2 saves out of the memory card via Codebreaker and converting the .cbs files to .max and the converting the .max files to .psu

Yeah, I know but I do not have Windows 7 or 8 at all so I cannot install Windows.

I wish to test it but I can't. I am on MAC OS X. I tried it with wineskin and wineskin worked with emulators I used but it doesn't work with this program. I run it with wineskin and nothing happened.

Maybe it didn't work with wineskin because of Command-Line GUI.
