[savedata] Mcboot –
Hi, is it possible to place 100% save data's on your memory card with mcboot?
No, not with FreeMcBoot itself. You'll need somthing like AR Max or codebreaker. I've seen PS3 USB memory card adaptors that gi from PS2 MC to USB and ive seen drivers for the PC, provided you could get a RAW save (like a one that hasn't been crushed in AR MAX) you may be able to do it that way, check out the FreeMcBoot page and SKSapps, they'll have a solution.
I'd personally reccomend using AR max, its worked for me every time over the course of 6~ years.
The previous poster is correct in saying that FMCB itself will not do such things, but he is incorrect in saying that you need commercial software for it.

The uLaunchELF program (aka: "uLE") contains a FileBrowser which is able to backup PS2 MC gamesaves to PSU files (one PSU file per gamesave folder) on external USB drives, and also to restore any existing PSU files on external USB drives to normal gamesave folder form on the PS2 MC.
So if you have downloaded '100% saves' for your games in the form of PSU files, then you can place these on a USB drive and use uLE to Copy+psuPaste them as gamesave folders on your PS2 MC. (This is done exactly as for normal file copying in uLE, except that the final command is "psuPaste" instead of normal "Paste".)
And if you have downloaded them in some other format than PSU, such as XPS, then you can use ffgriever's program "PS2SaveConverter" to convert them into PSU file form, after which you can proceed with uLE as mentioned above.
For some weird gamesave formats you may also need to use the older program "PS2SaveBuilder" to first convert a gamesave into XPS format (that program can't save into PSU format), and then proceed with ffgrievers "PS2SaveConverter" as described above.
So with those two conversion programs (both freeware) plus the uLE program installed with FMCB, you have all you could ever need to import any form of PS2 gamesaves to your MC.

Heh, I'm still living in 2006. Good guide there, I didn't know that was possible!
Your mention of 2006 made me check the change log of the project, and as it turns out it was back in 2006 that I first implemented psuPaste for uLE.

As you can see from the date, in 11 more days it will be exactly 5 years since I made that release...
