Using saved data

Saved data for PlayStation®2 or PlayStation® format software is saved on internal memory cards created within the hard disk. Internal memory cards can be used by assigning them to slots after they have been created. The data is displayed under (Memory Card Utility (PS / PS2)).


  • Some PlayStation®2 or PlayStation® format software titles may perform differently on the PS3™ system than they do on PlayStation®2 or PlayStation® systems, or may not perform properly on the PS3™ system.
  • Also, PlayStation®2 format software cannot be played on some PS3™ systems. For details, refer to [Types of Playable Discs], visit the SCE Web site for your region or review the documentation that was included with your PS3™ system.
