36w ago - Following up on my previous revision, after receiving so many problematic issues I (Spewfr) decided to discontinue the old setup and start a new pack of tools dubbed PS2Classics Virtual Memory Card Tools v4 Final for PS3.
Note: The PS3 will only read PS2SD/XXXXXXXXX/SCEVMC0.VME & SCEVMC1.VME.
VME = encrypted
PS2 and VMC = decrypted
PS2Classics Virtual Memory Card Tools & Guide
This tool pack allows users to compile new savegame VME's without the hassle of using the Command-Line GUI. Just download the tool pack and follow the instructions given below.
1. Get your PS2 unedited savegame from your PS3
Run your PS2classics SUCCESSFULLY at least once.
On your PS3, go to "Saved data Utility (PS2)", NOT INTERNAL MEMORY CARDS.
Select your PS2Classics game, and copy it to your USB drive.
2. Obtaining your PS2 savegames
With your memory card and external USB drive inserted into your PS2, run uLaunchELF v4.11
Navigate to mc0:/ or mc1 (mc0 = 1st slot, mc1 = 2nd slot)
Within that directory, there should lots of folders, for example BASLUS-12345++.
To copy all savegames to an external drive, press [SQUARE]. All of the folders in the memory card should now have white dots on them.
Press [R1] and select "Copy".
Now go up a folder and navigate to mass:/ (go into it).
Press [R1] and select "psuPaste".
All of the savegames should now be copied into your external USB drive as PSU's.
3. Converting your PS2 Savegames
Run MyMC, included in the tools.
Select a .PS2 Memory Card Image (included in the tools, fresh ones can be downloaded below)
Remember where this .PS2 image is.
Now click "File > Import..." and select the PSU that matches your PS2Classics game. (i.e. if your PS2Classics game id = PS2U23456, then your PSU equivalent may be BASLUS-23456XXXX.psu)
With the PSU imported, close the MyMC and find your .PS2 image.
Rename the .PS2 to .VMC
Open up PS2Classics GUI and click on the Encrypt tab.
Then select "Encrypt VMC". Select the .VMC/.PS2 image that you just edited/renamed.
Save the .VME that it makes in a place you will remember.
4. Importing your new Savegames onto your USB and PS3
Find the .VME that your just encrypted.
Copy it on your USB drive in this format, with the X's replacing your PS2Classics game ID.
(Overwrite the file, as there should be a VME in there already from Step 1. If no .VME is present, then do step 1 again)
With the VME copied in that format, plug your USB into your PS3.
Go to "Saved data Utility (PS2)"
Then inside of that, go to your USB drive and copy over the new savegame.
Overwrite the files, it should ask you to do that.
Enjoy your converted PS2 savegames

Thanks spewfr. Love this program, but i'm having some problems.
I was able to create the package and transfer it to my PS2.(60 GB running REBUG 4.30.2 REX edition) I placed the "exdata" folder on a USB device, created and new user "aa" and installed and ran ReactPSN. The PS2 rebooted and I logged in as my normal user and installed the PS2 game package.. When I run the PS2 game (Which does appear under the Playstation 2 category on the XMB) I just get a black screen. I've gone over the instructions and I don't think i'm missing anything.
You're very welcome! Thank you for using my tool I'm glad you finally got it working!
I looked at your images that you took, and you created an internal memory card; the game itself should not have created this card.
It would have made card inside of the ps2 save data utility; using the internal memor cards is useless.

Big Big Big thanks for you waiting for your news good luck to all ..
in the first try it came out black screen, but in the second just one game ran perfectly, i don't know if the method i use to copy it to the ps3 has to do with this. The game that it works was installed by usb fat32, but the other have more than +4GB and it was installed it with a NTSF HDD via multiman 4.18. I'm in Rogero 4.30 v2.05. Thanks to the scene and spewrf, is awesome.
