My ps2 slim memory cards work on the main screen, but i'm trying to play a ps1 game and as i try to save the game, it says that there is no memory card present. I bought another card with more memory.....

You can't save PS1 games on a PS2 memory card. You need to buy a PS1 memory card to save PS1 games. The PS1 card will plug into the standard memory slot on a PS2, but the insides are different.

I have no manual my problem is I have a First Generaiton Ps3 and would like to transfer my Ps2 memory card and cant figure it out. pleae help thank you Nichole

Prerequisites There is no PS2 memory card slot in the PS3 so will need a Memory Card Adaptor. Sony made an official adapter but there are also a number of cheaper alternatives. Buy one online:
  1. Plug your PS2 memory card into the adaptor
  2. Plug the adaptor into a free USB port on your PS3
  3. Go to the "Game" menu in the XMB and choose "Memory Card Utility (PS/PS2)"
  4. If the adaptor is working you should see an item called "Memory Card (PS2)". Below the title should be the size of the card and how much is in use-in my case "1334 KB / 7998 KB"
  5. Press the controller's Triange button to get the Memory Card options. Select "Copy"
  6. Select "Yes" to confirm the copy from memory card to the hard drive
  7. Enter a name for the new Internal Memory Card that will be created on the hard drive, or leave the default name. I named mine "Original PS2 saves". Select "OK"
  8. The data will be copied. If the amount of saved data is too large, the system will automatically create multiple internal memory cards
  9. You may be informed that the new internal card has been assigned to a "slot". These slots are an emulation of the physical memory card slots in the PS2, so similarly you may only have two internal/virtual cards "plugged in" (assigned) at a time. The internal memory card must be assigned to slot 1 or 2 to be available when you run PS2 games
  10. The new internal memory card should now be showing in the XMB, under Game > Memory Card Utility
  11. Selecting the card will allow you to browse the game saves that were copied across!

Want to play ps1games

I don't have that problem with mine, I have two memory cards 1 for a PS 1 & 1 for a PS2 and it depends on what game I want to play as to which memory card I put in the 1st slot! maybe your system is different but I don't have any trouble saving anything from PS 1 onto a PS 1 memory card.

I don't know if this helped any, but I sure do hope that you get your problem fixed!!

My memory card slot 1 doesn't work can I change the unit so that games will save to slot 2 instead or how do I swap the slots in the unit


When you choose to save when you are in any game, on the save screen you can choose to save to slot 2 provided there is a memory card inserted in slot 2.
