I downloaded a save file from Gamefaqs for a Ps1 game but I can't seem to get it onto my Ps3. I can get a Ps3 game save file onto my Ps3 fine but I can't seem to get a Ps1 file on there. What exactly am I suppose to be doing? Thanks.....

It might not work.Is the actual memory showing up on the PS3 hard drive in the PS1/PS2 memory section?

There are save files showing up on my Ps3 but those are the ones that I've saved from in game. I just can't seem to get the save file off my USB device and onto the system. I'm obvisouly doing something wrong when I extract it and put it back on. With the Ps3 save files it was really easy, but the Ps1 save file seems to use a different file extension or name so I'm not sure what I'm doing.

Firstly, make sure the PS1 game save you want to download is from the section of "PlayStation PS3 Virtual Memory Card Save". Secondly, make sure the PS1 game save you want to download is for the same region as your game & console. Thirdly, upload the game save to your PS3 the same way you upload PS3 game saves, i.e. in your USB drive, put the game saves in the folder \PS3\EXPORT\PSV Enjoy.

its not that easy you cant just put a ps1 save on your ps3 and have it work the file needs to be converted. when you put a ps1 save on your ps3, say using the adapter you can buy for it the ps3 converts it for you into a whole different file type. no program can convert these files on your pc that i know of ive tried many times, you have to get that save onto a memory card and then from there use the adaptor to load it on your ps3. unless there is a new way now. i havent tried in forever but thats why it wouldnt work before

At the Gamefaqs website, PS1 game saves in the section of "PlayStation PS3 Virtual Memory Card Save" are already PS3 format. Similarly, PS2 game saves in the section of "PlayStation 2 PS3 Virtual Memory Card Save" are already PS3 format. There is no need for conversion. Simply extract the zip file and transfer the game save to your PS3 as mentioned. Hope this helps.
