    This new Command-Line GUI tools converts your old PS2 savegames to a readable format for the PS3 system.

    Re-requisite:

    Run your PS2Classic at least once.
    Exit to the XMB, and go to “Save Data Utility (PS2)”
    Copy your PS2Classic Game’s Savedata to your external drive

    Follow the steps below to Convert your old savegame files, and then overwrite this one.

    1. Export your old PS2 saves from your PS2 Memory Stick to your computer, using either

    A. Sony’s memory Card Adapter (Requires PSV exporter)
    B. uLaunchElf; Tutorial included below.

    I recommend just copying your entire library of saves to an external drive

    2. Run SaveBuild - *Note - you may have to open PS2save-builder manually with admin rights; it is located in “tools”.
    3. Click “Edit > Add File”, and browse to the folder of your savegame. It will look something like “mc0:/BASLUS-21490″
    4. Import every file from that directory into the tool. (i.e. BASLUS-21490/icon.sys , BASLUS-21490/config , etc)
    5. Now edit the Root/ID field to match the name of the folder (i.e. Root/ID = BASLUS-21490)
    6. 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)
    7. Run MyMC
    8. When the program starts, it will ask you to open a .PS2 file; select “SCEVMC0.PS2″ (I have included one with the tools.)

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

    9. Click “File > Import…” and select the .XPS you just created.
    10. Run PS2toVME ; Make sure the new SCEVMC0.PS2 is in the same folder. (the .PS2 will be cleaned automatically every time PS2toVME closes)
    11. Copy the New VME in the VME folder to your external drive (external drive:/PS3/EXPORT/PS2SD/PS2UXXXXX/SCEVMC0.VME)
    12. On your PS3, plug in your external drive and go to the Game portion of the XMB, and select “Saved data Utility (PS2)”
    13. Select your external drive and copy over the new savegame
    14. You’re good to go, load up your game

    ulaunchElf Copy Savgame Guide

    1. Load uLaunchELF on your PS2, browse to your USB flash (under mc0:/ or mc1:/ ).
    2. Locate the folder that contains your savegame, then press R1 and select Copy to copy the entire folder (it should contain files like icon.sys , config , etc)
    3. Browse to your external drive ( mass:/ )
    4. press R1 again and select mcPaste to paste the entire folder onto your external drive (do NOT use Paste, while it works for most games, some games require mPaste)

      MC Adapter is still a good option if you're on OFW or you want to install FMCB via PC.

      B. uLaunchElf; Tutorial included below.
      uLE can export saves to PSU container which coud be directly imported in MyMC. Don't use direct file copy, also don't use XPS because you lost time stamp (some games use it as security layer for data validation).

      Thanks for the XPS tip!
      What can you save it as to keep the time stamp...?
      And how do you use ulaunchElf to save files in the Direct PSU container?

      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)

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

      Let's get started.

      COPY YOUR ORIGINAL SAVEDATA FROM THE PS3 -
      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.

      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 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)

      OPTIONAL:
      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

      COPY YOUR NEW SAVEDATA TO THE PS3 -

      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

      [MENTION=208137]Simonbuck[/MENTION] I have a question.

      Is .VME is the same has .VM2?

      If it is the same, have you tried doing this?

      1. Create a PS2 XMB VMC.
      2. Rename your .VME to .VM2
      3. Replace the existing, dev_hdd0/savedata/vmc/<virtual_memcard>.VM2 with your renamed file.
      4. Go to xmb. "Refresh" the VMC by changing the name or icon.
      5. Could you see the save blocks in XMB?

      If it is not, is there a tool to convert .VME to .VM2 ?

      Thanks.

      [MENTION=221155]gingerbread[/MENTION] : VME is an encrypted PS2 memory card image. You have to decrypt it first. After that just rename the resulting VMC file to .VM2, and your steps should work.

      The PS3 will only read PS2SD/XXXXXXXXX/SCEVMC0.VME & SCEVMC1.VME .
      VME = encrypted
      PS2 and VMC = decrypted

      1-Make sure your mmc slot 2 is clean
      2- Copy your Saved Data Utility (PS2) on usb
      3- Copy your original SCEVMC0.VME that came Saved Data Utility (PS2) put it on a safe place
      4- Delete your data on your Saved Data Utility (PS2) then run the ps2holder if u get a memory card error your good to go
      5- Copy the ps2holder Saved Data Utility (PS2) on usb again
      6- Open your usb and put your original SCEVMC0.VME on /PS3/EXPORT/PS2SD/PS2U[Game ID]
      7- Covert Any SCEVMC0.PS2 to SCEVMC1.VME make sure you have the save version save data on it
      - Put Your Converted SCEVMC1.VME on /PS3/EXPORT/PS2SD/PS2U[Game ID]
      8- Now All you need to do is stall the save data to you Saved Data Utility (PS2) then play the game you have save data by using mmc2
