    The purpose of this tutorial is to convert saves from a physical PS1 Memory Card to virtual a PS3 Internal Memory Card, using a Windows PC and a PS2 with FMCB, without a PS3 Memory Card Adapter or DexDrive.

    In order to complete this tutorial, a PS2 needs to run uLaunchELF to copy the save from the PS1 Memory Card. A USB storage device is also needed to copy the save from the PS2 to the PC to the PS3.

    PS1 Memory Card >> PS2 (FMCB) >> USB >> PC >> USB >> PS3 [Virtual Memory Card]
