Introduction: How to Put a Savedata Into a Ps3

If you are tired of playing the whole gameplay to finish the whole game and get all the awards then just download its savedata from the internet and put it inside the ps3 system

Heres how,

you will need a USB in order to do this

Step 1: Downloading the Save Data From the Internet

from google search for the game that you want
ill use gta iv as an example

type in the search box:

gta iv save data for ps3 download

and pick the option that you think is best

i usually use gamefaqs.com to download the save data

Step 2: Checking the Files

after you download it make sure the files are correct

they usually come in zip files
the folder's name should have some numbers and letters
the one i downloaded is: BLUS30127SGTA412
you should find some files in the folder

if you find all these things then the savedata is correct

Step 3: Putting the Save Data Into the USB

make a new folder named PS3 (with capital letters)

inside this folder create another new folder named SAVEDATA (with capital letters and no spaces)

put the downloaded save data inside the SAVEDATA folder (in my case its the BLUS30127SGTA412)

put the whole PS3 folder containing the SAVEDATA folder and the save data into a USB

here it is simplified:

USB<PS3<SAVEDATA<BLUS30127SGTA412

Step 4: Putting the Save Data Into the PS3

Insert the USB into your PS3 system,

go to the SAVED DATA UTILITY folder under the GAME menu,

open your USB from here,

you should see the save data inside the USB now, copy it  to the PS3's HD

Step 5: NOTE

before you do all these steps you should know that if you put a save data from the internet you will not be able to win any more trophies in the game that you downloaded its save data

the PS3 will tell you this in a message before you copy it actually but i just thought of adding it here too.

I tried to do this for Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA F (Japanese version) but my PS3 told me I can't use the save data of another person.

My game save is in a zip file, does it need to be extracted first?

I am not sure about these things but one of them might be the solution to some of your problems 1. make sure the file you downloaded is from the region you bought the game in it should be BLES for Europe and BLUS for the USA 2. I think some save games have encryption (again i'm not sure if these tips are going to work) there are many programs you can download that help you decrypt/encrypt the save game Hope this helped!

I tried the above but it still says No Data. The zip file contained many subfolders, and I placed all of them, unzipped, into the folder "SAVEDATA" inside the folder "PS3" on the thumb drive. I'm not sure what it is that could be wrong, unless I just don't have the right type of game file in the mod download. Help?

You need to have the correct folder set up. The game save data should be stored in the "SAVEDATA" folder, which itself should be stored in the "PS3" folder, otherwise the data won't be recognized by your console.
