- 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'

- 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
