April 1, 2013 // 8:39 pm - Following up on my previous revision, after receiving so many problematic issues I (Spewfr) decided to discontinue the old setup and start a new pack of tools dubbed PS2Classics Virtual Memory Card Tools v4 Final for PS3.

Download: MemCardConvTools_v4.rar (5 MB) / MemCardConvTools_v4.rar (Mirror)

Note: The PS3 will only read PS2SD/XXXXXXXXX/SCEVMC0.VME & SCEVMC1.VME.

VME = encrypted
PS2 and VMC = decrypted

PS2Classics Virtual Memory Card Tools & Guide

This tool pack allows users to compile new savegame VME's without the hassle of using the Command-Line GUI. Just download the tool pack and follow the instructions given below.

1. Get your PS2 unedited savegame from your PS3

Run your PS2classics SUCCESSFULLY at least once.
On your PS3, go to "Saved data Utility (PS2)", NOT INTERNAL MEMORY CARDS.
Select your PS2Classics game, and copy it to your USB drive.

2. Obtaining your PS2 savegames

With your memory card and external USB drive inserted into your PS2, run uLaunchELF v4.11
Navigate to mc0:/ or mc1 (mc0 = 1st slot, mc1 = 2nd slot)
Within that directory, there should lots of folders, for example BASLUS-12345++.

To copy all savegames to an external drive, press [SQUARE]. All of the folders in the memory card should now have white dots on them.
Press [R1] and select "Copy".
Now go up a folder and navigate to mass:/ (go into it).
Press [R1] and select "psuPaste".

All of the savegames should now be copied into your external USB drive as PSU's.

3. Converting your PS2 Savegames

Run MyMC, included in the tools.
Select a .PS2 Memory Card Image (included in the tools, fresh ones can be downloaded below)
Remember where this .PS2 image is.

Now click "File > Import..." and select the PSU that matches your PS2Classics game. (i.e. if your PS2Classics game id = PS2U23456, then your PSU equivalent may be BASLUS-23456XXXX.psu)
With the PSU imported, close the MyMC and find your .PS2 image.
Rename the .PS2 to .VMC

Open up PS2Classics GUI and click on the Encrypt tab.
Then select "Encrypt VMC". Select the .VMC/.PS2 image that you just edited/renamed.
Save the .VME that it makes in a place you will remember.

4. Importing your new Savegames onto your USB and PS3

Find the .VME that your just encrypted.
Copy it on your USB drive in this format, with the X's replacing your PS2Classics game ID.
(Overwrite the file, as there should be a VME in there already from Step 1. If no .VME is present, then do step 1 again)

With the VME copied in that format, plug your USB into your PS3.
Go to "Saved data Utility (PS2)"
Then inside of that, go to your USB drive and copy over the new savegame.
Overwrite the files, it should ask you to do that.

Enjoy your converted PS2 savegames

Finally, from xXRagnarokXx: Hey Guys, this is for noob tutorial and it works 100% no bug on the mmc.

1- Make sure your mmc slot 2 is clean

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.
