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.

okay so i've found the game id. okay now i'm stuck on step 9


This GUI does not yet fully support the ps2classics.exe tool, as some errors occur when not using the GUI.


1. Click on the ENCRYPT tab [Top of the GUI]
2. Select your ISO at the "Decrypted Image" field
5. Select "Add LIMG Sector" [if applicaple]
4. Change the "Content ID" field to as stated below
5. Press "Encrypt"
7. Save as "ISO" in the "tools" folder

Your ID = 2P0001-PS2U214.05_00-0000111122223333


Right click on this window, select "Mark" from the drop down menu, and select your custom ID stated above; Press enter to copy the selection. Press any key to begin. When you are done, close the GUI.

so what am i to do after it? it says i've got something missing.
