    Hello Everyone I'm ShadowSinclaira and here is a way to Convert PCSX2 saves to PS3 for your Ps2 Classics.
    Before we begin your gonna need a few things and somethings to note.
    THIS NOT FOR PHYSICAL PS2 MEMORY CARDS!!! THIS IS FOR MEMORY CARDS THAT THE PCSX2 (A playstation 2 emulator) CREATES.
    THIS Will work with all ps3 models EVEN ONES WITH OUT CFW OR HAN OR HFW.
    All PCSX2 Memory cards are in a .ps2 format.
    Ps2 Classics or the Virtual Memory Card That the Ps3 Makes are all In a .VME Format
    In this guide I'll be using Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4(installed using Han)( I ripped it then converted it to a pkg and installed on my ps3)( thank yooou ps3xploit team)

    Okay lets begin.................................................AND PLEASE LOOK WHERE THE HIGHLIGHT IS IN THE PHOTOS!!!!! YOU MUST ALREADY HAVE THE GAME INSTALLED AND ALREADY HAVE BOOTED THE THE GAME AND SAVED. YOU CAN NOT DROP THE SAVE ON THE PS3 WITH OUT A SAVE BEING THERE IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!!!!

    Here the things You'll need before we begin
    1. MYMC (in this guide i'll be using MYMC 2.6g2) which you can download here https://sourceforge.net/projects/mymc-opl/
    2. You'll need FRK Save Conversion Kit switch you can get here https://drive.google.com/uc?id=1KehXhJIbNp6-8i70vEs36XmCb7MCo6E6&export=download (give it time....I know it takes a while)
    3. Have a fat32 formatted USB flash drive
    OK
    STEP 1. when you download mymc and FRK and extract it into its very own folder.

    Step 2. go into mymc_2.6.g2.dist folder and open mymc-gui.exe upload_2019-4-14_17-47-28.png
    step 3. Find Your PCSX2 Memory Cards when it opens. (It will open just like this) upload_2019-4-14_17-49-11.png

    Config then go to Memory cards upload_2019-4-14_17-55-18.png

    Step 5: Grab the save then export by clicking the save 1 once and then clicking the memory card at the top...the arrow going to the right. upload_2019-4-14_18-13-3.png
    Step 6: Give it a name and save...It'll be in the same place where your memory cards are.. NOTE...At this point we've extracted the save you want and its now a .PSU File. upload_2019-4-14_18-21-55.png upload_2019-4-14_18-22-27.png
    Step 7: Open the FRK Folder upload_2019-4-14_18-23-42.png
    Step 8: Extract fpwr-sck1.3.zip and out into the folder upload_2019-4-14_18-29-8.png upload_2019-4-14_18-30-29.png
    Step 9: Go back to where the memory cards or store or where the .PSU is and clip that to the side. upload_2019-4-14_18-33-6.png
    Step 10: The save you exported from mymc rename it to save.psu upload_2019-4-14_18-34-55.png upload_2019-4-14_18-35-26.png
    Step 11: drag it into the fpwr-sck folder
    upload_2019-4-14_18-38-32.png upload_2019-4-14_18-38-59.png
    Step 12: Open the fpwr-sck.bat and press 1 and ent upload_2019-4-14_18-40-26.png
    Now you should see your .PSU file Now as a .VME file.
    Okay now on your ps3....you need to have a save already on the system. You can do this by just booting the game and it'll create one. go back to the XMB......Saved Data Utility(PS2)....then the game...put your USB in the ps3 and copy the save onto the USB by pressing triangle then copy then the USB and done. Which brings us to step STEP 13. Copy the .VME file from the output folder of the fpwr-sck. go to the USB upload_2019-4-14_19-21-19.png go in PS2SD
    upload_2019-4-14_19-25-24.png
    And there it is the game save from the ps3 upload_2019-4-14_19-27-6.png
    Open the folder and please...for the future if you have a lot of save on here please use the Large icons by pressing view then Large icons at the top.
    Step 14: Paste the .VME file in the folder and yes copy and replace and unhook the USB and go back to the ps3
    upload_2019-4-14_19-31-10.png
    Final Step: Plug in the USB Back into the PS3 go Saved Data Utility (PS2)>…..Your USB>...Then the Save game....> then press triangle....> Copy... AND YOUR DONE!!!!! YAAA DID IT SONNY BOY.
    Boot the game and your save will be there.

    I'd like to add that if you are trying to transfer an SMT nocturne save from pcsx2 to ps3, you have to replace both SCEVMC1 and SCEVMC0 on the usb with the .vme file from the output folder. Or else the game will just say that there is no save data.

    *.ps2 format is just 1:1 raw copy of PS2 Memory Card with ECC. Exactly the same as *.VM2. And the second sentence is wrong. *.VME is used only by PlayStation 2 titles sold in the shop which one of the emulators understand. The others use unencrypted/unsigned *.VM2.

    There is another application for the same task which doesn't work on *.psu but *.ps2/*.VM2 (but I forgot the name).

    mymc is outdated legacy stuff. Better is Dual MyMC.


    FYI ;)

    I Wish known that before.(that way I wouldn't have to restart the game over on ps3) Because i was a bit confused when putting the save back into the ps3 it always said no saves. Thanks to you I know why. I guess this applies to all ps2 games that saves only to memory card 1. XD
