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

Unfortunatelly, not every game works.

For example, I tried Mafia: The City of Lost Heaven - it launches but then freezes after intro video.

try installing the d3dx9_30.dll so you can solve that problem.

Nice very nice indeed, this program makes it so much easier to convert .ps2 format (Standard Format Used for PCSX2) I freaking love it. I just wanted to let everyone know that this program will so help with people trying to make codebreaker function correctly on the ps3. This isn't a total solution to make the codebreaker work, but it definitely will help in some of the processes of making it work right that's if your using PCSX2 to configure codebreaker.

when i go to save the iso to the tools folder it has the file name as ISO.BIN.ECN.BIN.ENC the next in the cmd line gui

Press any key to begin. When you are done, close the GUI. i close the GUI and cmd line gui pops up this error

Move ENC to game dir ISO.BIN.ENC not found! Make sure you saved it in the tools folder, or move it there. i even renamed the ENC to ISO.BIN.ENC.BIN.ENC to ISO.BIN.ENC since it said not found and i still receive the same error also saved to the desktop and then copied the file after it said not found still no luck. if anybody can explain to me what step i did wrong or missed i would greatly thankful

I mean after I copy the number in the 7th step, the ps2classic GUi shows up. After I select the ISO, the contentID will be entered automatically, but not the one I copied before (7th step). When I click encrypt, it says wrong number, even I try to enter the new number can't be entered completely ... can you explain step by step please, each step precisely. Thank you.

Cristina you must backup your savegame data BEFORE YOU USE THIS TOOL. Then overwrite your new SCEVMC0.VME from the VME folder to your external drive, and copy it back over to your PS3
