  1. This is what you can should work.

    - download the file/game save from GameFAQs that you want to be transferred to your PS3.
    - plug in a usb flash drive to the PC/Laptop that has the game save downloaded
    - open your flash drive, and create a folder called PS3
    - inside the newly created PS3 folder, create another folder called EXPORT
    - inside the EXPORT folder, create yet another folder called PSV
    - inside the PSV folder place the downloaded game save

    So for clarification, the hierarchy of the folders should look like this.

    plug the usb into your PS3 and then the game save should show up and then can be transferred to a Virtual Memory Card.

  1. There is an adapter you can purchase called the "PlayStation 3 Memory Card Adaptor" which will allow you to do this. It retails for $14.99 U.S., but can be found for less with a little extra effort.

  2. Hook up the $15 adapter to the your PS3 with the memory card with your save file in it. Go to the saved data utility on the PS3 console. If you browse "up" on the list once, it should show the memory card inserted in the adapter. Copy that to your PS3 "virtual card." Don't forget to assign that virtual card to a slot. That option is also available on the saved data utility menu (at the bottom, if I recall).

  3. he asked how do you transfer a saved file from GAMEFAQ's the easiest way would be getting an External Hard Drive that works with your PS3 attach the Ps3 to your PC/Laptop download the file that you need copy it onto your External Hard Drive then connect it to your PS3 USB port (it doesnt matter what one) then go on your PS3 u can trade things over so you will need to make a PS1Virtual Memory Card then you can transfer the FF7 Saved FIle from GamgeFAQ's over
