There is a memory card adapter that you need to purchase (around $15 retail) that will plug into one of the ps3 usb ports and allow you to copy all your ps2 and ps1 memory cards onto your ps3. From that point you just use them as normal with your games.

Go to the "Game" menu in the XMB and choose "Memory Card Utility (PS/PS2)"
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"
Press the controller's Triange button to get the Memory Card options. Select "Copy"
Select "Yes" to confirm the copy from memory card to the hard drive
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"
The data will be copied. If the amount of saved data is too large, the system will automatically create multiple internal memory cards
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
The new internal memory card should now be showing in the XMB, under Game > Memory Card Utility
Selecting the card will allow you to browse the game saves that were copied across!
Hi,my ps3 is not a slim version so hope this works ok for you.Return to your ps3 hard drive interface, go to 'game' then 'memory card utility' and create an internal memory card,but to get Abes Odsysee to work you must create the memory card in 'ps' format not 'ps2' worked for me,hope this helps.
1. Navigate to [Memory Card Utility (PS/PS2)] under [Game] on the XMB. 2. Press “X” to bring up the “New Internal Memory Card” option. 3. Tell the PLAYSTATION 3 which format you want it to create. PS2 or PS1. 4. Highlight “OK” and press “X” to finish creating the memory card.
Note that you can make new saves on this card while playing PS2 or PS1 games on the PS3, but it does not allow you to transfer saves from a physical memory card to the PS3's HDD. You need the memory card adapter to do that.
Yes of course, thats what tops the ps3 i believe, go to game, memory card utility (ps/ps2), create new internal memory card, choose ps2, name it, ok, then put in ps2 game and it will act like a ps2!
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!!
