PS2/PS3 Save Files FAQ

#1LionHeart823Posted 12/24/2007 2:32:24 PMmessage detail
I am going to say it right here. Right now. English isn't my first language, please pardon my mistakes. There are a couple topics about Save File everyday. I just needed to do this.

Post 1: PS3 Game Saves (Call of Duty 4, Ridge Racer 7, Folkore..etc)
Post 2: PS2 Game Saves on PS3 (Final Fantasy XII, Devil May Cry 3... etc)


**PS3 Game Saves - Transferring Save File from PC to PS3

1) How/Where do i download game saves for PS3 games (Such as Call of Duty 4, Assassin's Creed)?

- Gamefaqs provide a large selection of game saves for us. Simply go under 'Game Saves' for the game you want and download the 'Save Game File' (which is a zip file).

2) What do i do with the zip file ?

- Unzip the file
- Create new folder (name it PS3) in your USB Flash Drive.
- Create another folder inside the PS3 folder, name it 'SAVEDATA'

In most cases, the file you unzip would be a folder named something like this 'BCUS98103'. DO NOT rename it.

- Drag the folder into PS3/SAVEDATA

3) What's next?

- Turn on your PS3
- Plug your USB stick into the USB slot on your PS3
- Under Game > Saved Data Unity, 'USB Device' should appear on the top, select that
- Hit triangle when you see the save on your USB stick, select 'Copy'

**PS3 Game Saves - Transferring Save File from PS3 to PC

1) I want to share my save with people on gamefaqs! What do i do!?

- Plug your USB stick into the PS3
- Go under Game > Saved Data Unity
- Select the save you want, hit triangle and select 'Copy'

2) Done that, what's next?

The save will appear under the PS3 > SAVEDATA > (Game Save Folder)

- Zip the folder and upload it.

Please understand the fact that PS3 reads .psv file.

PS2 Game Saves - Transfering Save File from PS2 Memory Card to PS3

- Buy a 'PS3 Memory Card Adaptor'. It's the ONLY way to transfer saves from PS2 Memory card directly onto the PS3

PS3 Virtual Memory Card Save - PC to PS3

These are the PS2 saves that can be transfer through a USB stick to your PS3. Once again, please understand the fact that PS2 MaxDrive/Sharkport/Codebreaker saves WON'T work here, as PS3 ONLY reads .PSV save file. Popluar game such as 'Final Fantasy XII' already has a 'PS3 Virtual Memory Card Save' uploaded. These are the saves that can be downloaded/use for your PS3.

- Download the zip file from the Game Saves Page
- Unzip it. The file would be named something like 'BASLUS-2167844425A5433.PSV'. DO NOT rename
- Create a Folder name PS3 on your USB Stick. Inside, make another folder name EXPORT. Inside, that, make a folder name PSV
- Plug in your USB Stick
- Put the file in PS3/EXPORT/PSV/ (put the .psv file you downloaded here)
- Remove your USB stick and plug it into your PS3

- Go under Game > Memory Card Utility (PS/PS2)
- Select 'USB Device' at the top,
- Find your save file, and hit triangle, then select 'Copy'

PS3 Virtual Memory Card Save - PS3 to PC

- Plug your USB stick into your PS3
- Go under Game > Memory Card Utility (PS/PS2)
- Select the save you want, hit Triangle. Copy it to USB Stick
- Zip that file on your PC then upload

How to transfer PS2 MaxDrive/CodeBreaker/AR saves?

PLEASE Understand that there is no 'PSV Converter' yet.
If there is a PS2 save file you really want to play on your PS3 but there is no 'PS3 Virtual Memory Card Save' for it. There is one way to convert it.

- Go dig up whatever cheat device you had (Sharkport? MaxDrive?)

- Download the save file that works on your cheat device. Unzip it
- Transfer the savefile to your PS2 with your cheat device

- Run out and buy a 'PS3 Memory Card Adaptor' for your PS3

- Transfer the save from your PS2 memory card to your PS3 using the newly bought PS3 Memory Card Adaptor

do you know if its possible to copy a ps1 save from a psp to the ps3? It's probably not the right file type and if it isn't is there a converter for psp's ps1 save?

Sorry, i can't help you there.
What i posted was pretty much everything i know

However, if you can somehow find a way to convert the save file to a .psv file, that PS1 save file of yours would work

I guess i forgot to mention that PS1 Save file work exactly the same as PS2 Save file when it comes to PS3's Virtual Memory Card.. it NEEDS to be in .psv.
