    Okay I originally rented a NTSC copy of Red Steel. I got pretty far into it. I had to return it of course. Now I have a PAL backup. Of course the files wont read. Is there any way to convert the NTSC save to PAL? Or can I convert my PAL backup to NTSC so it will work with my NTSC save? or am I SOL?

    Use RegionFrii to change the disc from PAL to NTSC, then the save should work.

    I believe that you can just put the exact same data in the correct folder. Every region of game has a different folder in which the save is put on in the SD card. If you put the same data in the folder that has the same name as the correct region game you can then just reload the data and it should work.
    Also, i dont think that changing the region would work as it just changes the region header but no actual data of what the disk reads.
