    You have 2 options. 1, you can use a dreamcast sd card adapter and the program "DreamShell" to transfer the vmu saves that you have to a sd card which you can then transfer to a pc.

    2, You can use a dreamcast program called "Dream Explorer 0.8.5" to copy vmu game saves directly to a pc. With option 2 though it has pretty much every dreamcast game save ever made so once you see that you might not care about backing up vmu saves anymore.

    Thanks, I checked out Dream Explorer already, but you need a broadband adaptor for that right? Also, I think the service is down...

    It is down atm, my fault. If you still wish to download it, it should be called "Disc Juggler 3.50.830 image". That only leaves the DreamShell option then for backing up vmu saves.
