PSOne Game Saves
With the ability now for our PS3's to play our backup PSX games, I thought I would ask to see if anyone knew how to convert the old save games over to the .psv format. Most memcard readers and converters were made for the emulators, but very tutorials I've seen out there will allow you to do it to .psv format without the use of a PSP or memory card adaptor. There are a lot of save games on gamefaqs, but a good amont of them are in .gme (dexdrive) format.
I don't currently have a PSP or card adaptor, so I thought I'd ask around to see if there was any new way of doing it.
I can get the files to .gme, .mcs, .mcr and so on, just not to .psv (which of course would go into the usbroot/PS3'EXPORT folder)
i use the memcardrex and paste the original save directly in the ps3 virtual memory card file
I have that program, but the file I have is from an old dexdrive and is in GME format. How would I get it to the ps3 properly, or will it load in that formt.

Cut the DEXDrive header and You'll get the raw 1:1 mc image (exactly 128KB). Rename it to *.VM1 (case sensitive), put with others vmc and rebuild database.
You can also rename it to *.mcr and look in ePSXe if it's work - for test purposes (much handy than transfer it to PS3 and reb db).
That did it :)

Thanks for the help!
