    Ok so i'm tryin to get some ps2 saved games i got from the net which are in a .MAX format now i have the max little flash card and the software but the disk wont play on my ps3 so my question is what format are ps2 game saves when they are on a memory card? is there a way to conver the .max file to a regular format so i can just put it on one of my pro duo memory sticks and then transfer the saves on to my ps3's internal memory card?

    READ THROUGH THIS CALMLY...
    Try Save Builder Here it is
    a TUTORIAL IS OUT THERE SOME WHERE BUT CAN'T FIND IT!
    So all you have to do
    is:
    1)Launch Save Builder 08x
    2)Open the Armax or Any downloaded save file through it.
    -It will show you the contents in that save.
    - You will see the ROOT ID of the game just under the Text icon.
    3) copy the Text of ROOT ID (eg. BASLUS-21376,BESLES-53017tmnt2).
    4) Open the folder where you want your save file saved(eg. c:\My Documents).
    5) Create a New Folder & RENAME IT AS THE ROOT ID OF THE SAVE(eg. A Folder named "BASLUS-21376" for the the save file that has BASLUS-21376 as it's ROOT ID.)
    6) Go back to Save Builder and Highlight all the contents of the save file (eg BASLUS-21376, icon.sys, mc.ico ,abc123 & so on)
    and
    -EXTRACT THEM IN THE FOLDER YOU CREATED EARLIER(BY RIGHT-CLICKING THE FILES THERE IS AN OPTION "Extract").
    - OR COPY AND PASTE THEM IN THE FOLDER YOU CREATED EARLIER.
    7) Now this is a Save file READY TO USE!!
    8) NOW COPY THE FOLDER ONTO YOUR FLASH.
    9) And transfer it onto your Memory Card
    -Via A.rmax OR LuanchELF

    I am plagued by the same problem as well. I followed all of the above steps and the PS3 will recognize my thumb-drive, but states there is no save game data on the drive. Is this Sony's way of forcing people into buying the memory card reader? Or is there something I'm missing?

    Now I don't know about PS3 cause i have'nt even touched it yet.
    But did you convert the saves using SaveBuilder first that it very important.
