    The purpose of this tutorial is to convert saves from a physical PS2 Memory Card to a virtual PS3 Internal Memory Card, using a Windows PC (without a PS3 Memory Card Adapter). In order to complete this tutorial, the PS2 needs to be running FMCB to retrieve the save with uLaunchELF. Also, a USB storage device is used to copy the save to the PS3.

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