Re: Memory card says i need more space

Something similar happened to me before, its probably something wrong with your memory card.  take it out, blow into it, etc.  if that doesnt work then try and switch memory card disc slots. if THAT doesnt work... i dont know. when somehting like this happened to my flashdrive it was because it was it had hidden data or soemthing. anyway, is it a playstation 1 mmory card? those have like no space.

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!

When you delete the files, it doesn't really free up the space, just marks the files as non readable.
To free the space, ensure the SD card is connected to your PC, and empty your recycle bin.
This will mark the space on the card as writeable.

Hi. my 8mb memory card cannot save my god of war game... why is it so? i can save all the games i have except for the god of war. what do you think is the problem?

check the memory card.. take the disc out of the system and turn the system on, the click on the memory card and see how many different game saves are on the card.. at this point you will be able to delete some of the old games off of the card and
then it will free up the space required to save "God's of War".
