    Is this possible? I heard the PS3 only recognizes .psv save files for PS1 and PS2 games. Is there any way to convert it?

    I thought of a way but kind of got stuck. I used swapmagic 3.6 to run uLaunchELFv4.12, the same method to transfer save files to a ps2. But when I enter the mass, which should be my portable hard drive on the ps2, nothing showed up. I noticed that when I enter cdfs, it shows the files from the swapmagic 3.6 disc. So I guess if I put the save file on a disc, it should be there right? I don't have any blank CDs to use right now so I can't test it.

    If you think this might work can anyone test it?
    Or is there another way?

    Sorry if it's confusing...kind of rushed it.

    Thanks

    The reason you can't yet is because Sony doesn't want you to be able to. They want you to pay $20+ for a stupid memory card converter that should be included.

    i have a ps3 but have some ps2 game saves from gamefaq that i want to put into my ps3. is this possible without buying the 20$ dongle or whatever that thing is? i tried putting it on my usb but the ps3 wouldn't recognize it. i think the ps2 game save was a "max" file.
