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)
mass:/PS3/EXPORT/PS2SD/PS2UXXXXX/SCEVMC0.VME

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

For the next half-hour or so, I will be trying to convert saves manually. The bug will *most likely* be found before 6am EST. Til' then, good luck.

UPDATE -The problem has been fixed... read on.

As I had earlier suspected, the GUI is very necessary for encrypting/decrypting VMC files... Why this is, I have no clue. It's very annoying I also converted the XPS to a PSU with the PS2save converter (ps2savetools.com).

I'll just release a new version of the tool. I just loaded up the game without the black screen error; but I think the savegame may be encrypted with some shiz, so I can't completely "load" it.

Maybe it's corrupt from copying it over from my old PS2, so I'll find a regionally-correct save from online. As always, thank you for using my tools!!

UPDATE -I successfully loaded a 100% savegame for Cars.

You must convert your XPS to a PSU
You must use the original GUI by Aldos and ps3dev-net

As to the corrupted save for the Cars game, I think that the "Preserved" attribute (0x0080) must be a result of improper copying from uLanchElf; MAKE SURE YOU USE mPaste... I will be releasing v3.5 shortly.

Version 3.5 is almost out, with some major cleanup; I found the errors.

Happy Easter

Virtual Memcard Converter v3

This is a basic fix to my last version, although some saves still do NOT work. Disney-Pixar's cars, for example, still gives me an error on start-up that the saved data is being stupid lol. If anybody finds a new method, PLEASE PM me and inform me of what's going wrong

Let's get started.

COPY YOUR ORIGINAL SAVEDATA FROM THE PS3 -
1. Convert your game with PS2iso2pkg; REMEMBER THE GAME ID. It is absolutely necessary.
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.

DO NOT SAVE ANY DATA TO THE "MEMORY STICK" WHILE IN-GAME, THIS IS CRUCIAL.

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.

CONVERT YOUR NEW SAVEDATA FROM YOUR OLD PS2 -
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 VMEtoPS2.exe
The tool will decrypt the file in the orig_VME folder;
It will save it 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)

5. 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 .XPS you created in set 4.

BE AWARE THAT THIS TOOL UPDATES THE MEMORY CARD WITH REAL-TIME; AND SAVES CANNOT BE REMOVED!

6. Run PS2toVME.exe
The tool will encrypt the file in the PS2 folder;
it wil save it in new_VME.

COPY YOUR NEW SAVEDATA TO THE PS3 -
1. Copy the New VME in the 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 & hope you don't get the error \(0n0)/

one more thing i used CFW Eboot & PKG Resigner v1.20 for make my game PS2 Classics.

i should delete my ps2 xmb game and remake it use your program in this post (PS2 ISO to XMB Conversion Command-L) or nothing different between (CFW Eboot & PKG Resigner v1.20) and your program (PS2 ISO to XMB Conversion Command-L) ?..

the problem here when i go to Game from XMB and select "Saved data Utility (PS2)" can't see any save data ?! "Saved data Utility (PS2)" ((empty)) !!? but when i start the game from XMB still take ((LOAD DATA)) !!? it's mean there is save data but still can't find save data for replace it with my new VME ?!!!!..

I figured it out. I put the ISO file in the /iso/ folder and for some reason that's why it wasn't working (I removed the space beforehand and it still didn't work, but I shouldn't have spaces in file names anyway!)

Hopefully if anyone has this problem they'll find this thread and figure it out

May be you didn't typed SCUS of the game?

Cause, you see - 2P0001-PS2U10000_00-0000111122223333 - there must be exact SCUS.
