Over the past couple of days I have set up the latest version of ePSXe and I am very happy to say I have been able to run my copy of Digimon World 2003 (known as Digimon World 3 in the USA) almost perfectly. I have one small issue remaining that I cannot seem to solve for myself.

I have an existing save file for the game on my PS3 in .PSV format. I have used Memcardrex to convert this into a format usable with ePSXe and attempted to load the save using the emulator. It initially appears to work, but just after halfway through the load, the emulator freezes and does not finish the load game.

I have attempted converting the save via several different methods using different programs, none of which work. Additionally, I have downloaded somebody else's save file (not made on PS3) and it worked. Therefore I assume the problem lies in the fact that the file was originally a .PSV on my PS3. For the record, everything I have mentioned is from the same region (PAL).

I would really like to be able to play this wonderful game on my computer however this one remaining issue haunts me. If anybody here with a little more experience in PSX emulation could assist me I would appreciate it.

If any additional information or detail is needed I will do my best to elaborate on anything that may be relevant.

dewd/dude, you are so screwed - [check it-it rhymes] ps3 saves are [probably-definately?] protected files, so good luck getting them working.

sorry, it was a free drunken response from an epsxe fan, wait another 5 days & you may get a reply from the devs who made this for free.

looked into this myself, use USB-PS3/PS1 adapter to upload my hard earned saves to superior emu engine, [ps3 ps1 emu sux, even with smoothing] the most popular 'MemcardRex' can read but not write .psv, so i gave up, maybe you should post this on their [or similar] site.

from what i've read, the successfull way is to use a ps1/2 memcard to PC via dexdrive or custom serial connection.

your only hope may be to get your ps3 saves back onto ps1 memcard, which won't be easy, this from gamespot:

"Q:Any way to get ps2 saves from my ps3 onto a ps2 memory card without the card getting wiped?. i have the sony usb adaptor but it keeps wiping my ps2 cards then i go ps3 -> ps2

A:pSV Exporter can take a PSV file on your computer and convert it to a raw save. However, you have to use unofficial transfer software on a PS2 to put the save back on a memory card from the PC. The USB adapter won't help you here, Sony intended save transfer to be one-way so that you upgrade to the PS3, instead of keeping the PS2 for use."

thanks to previous post's reported success, i finally bought a usb ps2 memcard adapter & it works on 4 tested games, however my saves were direct ps1 card to ps3 import/export, then memcardrex export to .mcr, I did not play the games [which would have modified the saves] while on ps3, nor were any of the saves originally created by ps3.

may be a problem with digimon saves/your setup rather than epsxe?
