    Can you post a link to a page that tells you how to do it on a PC?

    The instructions there should work, but you'll have to format your memory stick to FAT32 first. Move anything important off, open Disk Utility, and select the memory stick in the list on the left-hand side. Under the Erase tab, set the volume format to MS-DOS (FAT) and click Erase.

    After you formatted the disk did you make a folder on the drive called PS3, then SAVEDATA, then the save folder you download.
    Most files I download work well but you may want to try a different save file. I'm on PS3 all the time...feel free to add me @ derickmiller
    Hope you can get it to work
