I remember that you have to go in to the ps3 menu and "create" an internal ps2 memory card to be able to save ps2 games properly. I don't remember exactly what the process was but it was described in the manual.

you only need the adapter to transfer save games off the PS2 card to the HD-  right now it's basically a one use item.

Is it possible to use a usb thumb drive in the ps2 to transfer the games over?  I remember using one to save my Gran Turismo 4 pics.

I thought I read somewhere that you could do that (assuming you have a way to get the saves off the PS2 memory card and onto a USB device). But I'm not sure.

unfortunately the only way right now is to have a PS2 memory card and the save transfer adapter. Don't feel bad about buying the adapter, use it the one time you will use it, and return it.

But now it's opened. Nobody (but Walmart) will take it back.
