3. Load your converted PS2Classic at least once on your PS3, then quit when you see the PlayStation 2 logo.

6. Press triangle on your savedata, and select "Copy."

CONVERT YOUR NEW SAVEDATA FROM YOUR OLD PS2
1. Connect your storage media to your computer. Navigate to drive:/PS3/EXPORT/PS2SD/PS2U[Game ID]
2. Copy SCEVMC0.VME to the "orig_VME" folder of the GUI tool.
3. Run VMEconv.exe
Click the Decrypt tab
Select Decrypt VME, and select your VME in orig_VME
Save as SCEVMC0.PS2 in the PS2 folder.
4. Run SaveBuild.exe **Note - you may have to open PS2save-builder manually with admin rights; it is located in "tools" **
Click "Edit > Add File", and browse to the folder of your savegame.
It will look something like "mc0:/BASLUS-21490"
Import every file from that directory into the tool. (i.e. BASLUS-21490/icon.sys , BASLUS-21490/config , etc)
Now edit the Root/ID field to match the name of the folder (i.e. Root/ID = BASLUS-21490)
Go to "File > Save as..." and select "Save as file type: X-port2 (*.xps)" and save the file as your Root/ID (i.e. BASLUS-21490.xps)
[The program will ask you to save the file inside of your savegame folder, save it somewhere like your desktop)
You can just export your PS2 savegames from uLaunchElf into a PSV container, which allows for timestamp verification saves
5. Run X2Pconv.exe
Select "Open", and find your XPS that you saved in step 4
Click "Save" and save it as a .PSU
6. Run MyMC.exe
When the program starts, it will ask you to open a .PS2 file; Navigate to and select MemCardConv/PS2/SCEVMC0.PS2
Click "File > Import..." and select the .PSU you created in set 5
7. Rename your PS2
Inside of the PS2 folder, rename SCEVMC0.PS2 to SCEVMC0.VMC
8. Run VMEconv.exe

Select Encrypt VMC, and select your VMC in PS2
Save as SCEVMC0.VME in new_VME
