PlayStation MemCard Pro (Memory Card)

No more piles of tiny memory cards for the PlayStation 1 with a mere 15 blocks on each card.

Did you know that there are games that use a whole standard Memory Card for just 1 save?

The MemCard PRO was designed and assembled by 8BitMods, and it's a brand new offering for the PlayStation 1 and PlayStation 2 (for PlayStation 1 games only) that solves the problem of storing your game's saves forever.

In this latest hardware revision (HW3) there is no longer the need for a PS2 modification for the MemCard PRO to function. Simply plug in, load your favourite PS1 game and enjoy!

High Tech

Using the latest components, the MemCard PRO offers an almost infinite amount of blocks for your PlayStation 1, from a single slot! An ESP32 module provides an incredible amount of power, with a dual-core processor running at 240MHz.

Endless Storage

MemCard PRO can store "virtual memory cards" on a standard microSD card of any size. Everything from 1GB to 1TB works!
Each gigabyte of storage on your microSD card equals to a whopping 8192 memory cards! Yes you've read that right! A 1GB microSD can store 122,880 blocks of PlayStation 1 game saves!

But it doesn't stop there! This little device is packed with features!

A Memory Card with WiFi!?

MemCard PRO can also connect to your WiFi network, to provide extra cool features! At this moment you can browse, mount, delete, edit or rename the Virtual Memory Cards on your microSD card, through an intuitive Web User Interface. It can also update its firmware over the internet, or through the microSD card slot.

.. and an FTP Server! 
Why get up from the leisure of your couch to move files around on the SD card, when you can simply do it over an FTP client? The MemCard PRO can run its own local FTP server which gives you instant access to the whole filesystem of your sd card, without lifting a finger!

.. and an OLED Display!?

Did we mention there is a super-bright OLED display on MemCard PRO? The display can show you the mounted memory card, along with more information like read and write access indicators. It can also show the card's name, which you can set through the WebUI.

Last but not Least...

If you have a modern PlayStation 1 Optical Disc Emulator, it's about to get even more exciting.

MemCard PRO can seamlessly communicate with an ODE and automatically mount the memory card specifically for that game! If it's the first time you're running the game, it will automatically create 8 virtual memory cards for that specific game, and even show the game's name on the display! 

But even if you don't, and you prefer original discs instead, you can still take advantage of the MemCard PRO GameID system! Simply boot your games via UniROM (FreePSXBoot or a UniROM flash cartridge).

We really plan to add more features to MemCard PRO, and everything will be addeed for free, through a firmware update.

Features:

  • OLED display that shows the mounted memory card, read/write access indicators and network information
  • Supports any microSD card, from 1GB to 1TB. Every GB of storage has enough space for approximately 8000 cards
  • WiFi connectivity and remote features through a WebUI
  • Switch the active channel through a game pad combination or with the card's physical buttons
  • Easy wireless network setup from a wireless device's web browser, by connecting to its access point
  • Supports ODE commands for automatic loading, game info and remote control
  • High quality manufacturing with an injection molded shell and hard gold plated fingers
  • Load the stored memory cards remotely through the WebUI and manage individual blocks
  • Easily access and manage the physical files on your MemCard PRO microSD card over an FTP client

Planned Features:*

  • Local and Cloud backup functionality through file rotation
  • Share saves with your friends
  • Download saves and memory cards directly to your MemCard PRO from a URL
  • ... more surprises!

IMPORTANT NOTE ON PLAYSTATION 3 ADAPTER COMPATIBILITY:

Due to the limited power supply capabilities of the PlayStation 3 Memory Card adapter, it is unfortunately not supported.

*Planned are based on the capabilities of the MemCard PRO hardware, and may not be implemented."

    Genuinely the best memory solution for any retro system

    Posted by Chad Farber on Jan 18th 2023

    I have a PS1 set up with Xstation and got this memory card just to save on buying a bunch of separate cards and WOW is this thing fantastic. It set up separate memory cards for individual games, has a nice little OLED screen, incredible WiFi set up, and it`s just a fantastic all around. For the price, if you have a PS1, you absolutely should snag one of these.

    Best Memory Card!

    Posted by Marcus Modugno on Jan 16th 2023

    Pretty much the best memory card ever! Never will need another, now I just wish we had one for every console as this has spoiled me and my PS1. Gamecube version is going to be killer and one can hope for a PS2 version.

    The last PS1 memory card you`ll ever need.

    Posted by Ian on Jan 15th 2023

    An amazing tool that, with a little creativity, can lead to some very interesting places. If nothing else you`ll never need another PS1 memory card ever again.

    Some important things to note if you plan on purchasing this item that should save you some headaches:

    1. Make sure you have a wifi enabled device such as a computer or smart phone.
    If you`re reading this you probably already have that. You`ll need this to access most of your memcard`s other functions. FTP is an option as well with more recent firmware.

    2. Familiarize yourself with ``Memcard Rex.``
    Its a free program that lets you edit, create and extract saves from ps1 memory card files. Its easy to use, just remember to highlight an empty slot and then select ``import save`` to add an individual save to a memory card file. If you`ve used ps1 emulators it likely uses the same files memcard pro uses and they function in the same way. All can be edited with Memcard Rex.

    3. Don`t forget you can copy saves from original PS1 memory cards to the memcard pro using the PS1 memory card manager just like a normal memory card.

    4. Finally, while this device is very reliable, make sure to make back-ups of your saves just in case. In my tests I did end up corrupting 1 virtual memory card. It was easy enough for me to fix but it can happen so always keep a back-up just in case!

    No need to buy more original PS1 cards!

    Posted by D E on Jan 3rd 2023

    Buying several (like 5 to 10) original PS1 memory cards can net you around $50-60 USD (or maybe more!), but the MemCard Pro is $50, with a micro SD card that you can get for under $10 USD (or a spare one you might have lying around that`s like only a few gigabytes), which is just as much. The best part? Just 1GB is equal to 8,192 memory cards. No need to buy any more memory cards after getting this! And that`s not all - the wi-fi feature also gives you control of cycling through each virtual memory card remotely, so you don`t need to go straight to your PS1 to change VMCs. You can also copy saves from those other memory cards that you have lying around (especially 3rd party ones that have the tendency to corrupt your saves) and copy them through the MemCard Pro and transfer those VMCs on a USB drive as a backup! This is an ABSOLUTE MUST BUY for any PlayStation 1 lovers out there. Just wish there was like two more buttons on the MemCard Pro itself, but it`s an amazing thing regardless.

    Looks Cool and Has Amazing Storage

    Posted by Reviewer on Nov 27th 2022

    Very easy to use and worth the cost since you can save so many files to it. I like the look and the digital text on the card as well.

    Completely removes the need for a regular Memory Card

    Posted by Tommy JC on Nov 15th 2022

    I been using this for a while now. Every feature is top notch, especially the remote memory card management.
    At this point my regular memory cards are collecting dust in my drawers and they might not see the light for years to come.
    This is a must-have for every PS1 enthusiast.

    The Silver Bullet of PS1 memory cards

    Posted by Brandon M on Sep 19th 2022

    This product pretty much does what it says on the tin. I have an X-station and was able to easily have memory cards automatically made for whatever game I was playing. Management is easy with the web interface. I used to need my modded PS2 to easily get saves between a PS1 memory card and an emulator, using this product the whole process is just a download/upload in the web interface away.
    With a stock PS1, it's also easy to use for things like tonyhax or freepsxboot as well, making it far easier to play backups without a modchip or swap trick.
    I highly recommend this for anyone that does serious gaming on a PS1.

    Perfect for any PS1 collection.

    Posted by Wesley on Sep 16th 2022

    Excellent product. Beyond never having to worry about running out of Memory card space for your PS1 anymore, this is an excellent tool for backing up saves from other PS1 memory cards, especially if you're unsure when your PS1 memory card might stop working.

    Best PS1 Memory Card

    Posted by Denis on Sep 6th 2022

    This thing is simply amazing. I had almost 10 PS1 original memory cards and finally I will be able to preserve them. There is so many features on this. Can't wait for the PS2 and GC versions!!
