    I got stuck in a game (Tales of Phantasia) while on vacation w/ a nice, 14 hour flight ahead of me. I was 20 hours in the game, so obviously didn't want to just quit. I found MemcardRex which is great. It converted my VMP to MCR format, and I got past the problem part. Now, the issue is I need something to convert it back to VMP to finish it up on my PSP. The only thing I've seen seems somwhat manual. Is there a certain trick in creating VMP files that I'm missing?

    Cool, thanks for the heads up.
    As very dumb luck would have it, I was able to get past the problem part before by a little bit of tears and a lot of sweat, and am bout to finish the game. Something tells me this will happen again 20-30 hours into some other game down the road though. :)

    Read the readme and understand it. Otherwise go for CWCheat method which I actually recommend.

    Btw: Who said that there was an attachment on this particular forum?
    Also, something is not right if it took you an hour to follow the link Silenus posted...

    ...I know what i was doing...its not so hard to convert a .mcr file by just clicking on it...

    i converted it with the same Game ID and i got the full .vmp and then i renamed it and replaced it in the save games files (yes i put it in the right game i even tried 2 regions of it)...

    As for CwCheat when enabled it shuts off my PSP or makes it crash whenever i start a game...and that is after trying 3 versions of CwCheat...

    And for the download link "Use the attached MCR to dVMP application to convert your .mcr file to (dummy) VMP." - Dead link

    After searching through the internet i got 4 dead links and 3 Japanese sites...then i finally got the right download...only to convert it and then it doesnt work... :(

    I know i sounded a little bit p***** but everyone says this works...

    What game are you playing? Are you sure that the save is for this particular region of the game?

    Can you view a save when you go to Memory Card Utility?

    No I meant with the Memory Card Utility of popstation.

    Alternatively I can convert the save for you, just attach the mcr card.

    Here you go.

    As for MC Utility just press home button when you are playing the game (assuming you have newer revision of popstation).

    Trouble with MCR to dVMP converter

    Hi there! First time poster, here. I'm admittedly a noob at this stuff, but I have a psp slim with CFW and popsloader. I am having trouble converting my ePSXe .mcr save file to a .VMP file. I have tried to convert it on my PC and on my PSP, but either way it tells me it's not a valid memory card. Is there any way you could convert this for me, or give me instructions on how to get past this issue? Not sure which one you would need, so here are both. Thanks so much in advance!
