How do I transfer a game faq save file to my PS3? I downloaded the file and put it on my Flash Drive but nothing when I put it in my PS3.

1. First you download the game save.
2. Then you right click on the downloaded file, and click 'Extract Here'
3. A new file should pop up. Put that new file on a flash drive.
4. Sometimes you have have to put the downloaded save into a folder named 'SAVEDATA' that is in the 'PS3' folder.
5. After doing that, stick your flash frive in one of the USB ports of your PS3. Go to saved data utility and go to USB device.
6. Copy the downloaded game save to your HDD.
7. Enjoy your new downloaded game save

Create a file structure like this on your memory stick.
PS3, SAVEDATA, then put the extracted content in here, should be something like bcues3728756857.
Put your memory stick in your PS3 and then go to save data utility and then you will see your memory stick with the saves on it, then just copy them.
Make sure to type folders all in caps and to download the right region game save.

If it's a PS3 savegame, do what the above posters said, but if it's a PS2 gamesave, it's a different process.
 
If the save is a gamefaqs PS2 save game, you need to see if the game has a listing for "PlayStation 2 PS3 Virtual Memory Card Save".  Otherwise, it will be an incompatible format unless you have the specific device that that type of save was transferred with.
 
The devices for PS1/2 from their FAQ:
  • PlayStation - DexDrive (.PSX) format saves only. Requires a DexDrive.
  • PlayStation2 - X-Port, SharkPort, MAX Drive format saves only.
 
Stick the *.PSV file in the "PS3\EXPORT\PSV\" folder of your memory stick if the PS2 game has a "PlayStation 2 PS3 Virtual Memory Card Save"  If it doesn't have this listing under the games save section, then no one has uploaded one yet.
 
The Directories for your games on your memory stick would be:
PS3\EXPORT\PSV\"File.psv" - PS1 and PS2 save games
PS3\SAVEDATA\"GameDirectory" - PS3 save games

Well, you have to put it in the correct folder..

It needs to be in a the PS3/SAVE folder.. or just /SAVE...I'm honestly not sure... it's been a while (sure someone here will reply and give you the correct folder)

But I think you can also hit Triangle and hit "View all" to find it, that's how I load my music/videos. Not sure if it works with save data though.

EDIT: ah, PS3/SAVEDATA.. I stand corrected

In English, he means unzip the file, if its a .zip file, and I assume a Mac has a zip utility.... ..I hope
