PocketStation Save Manager

This tool run from a Playstation CD. It will allow you to upload any PocketStation Save file (.bin or .gme) from the CD to your PocketStation inserted inside one of the Memory Card Slot. Featuring a nice user friendly Interface.

Download it here: http://onorisoft.free.fr/psx/psloader.zip
It does require some time and tools to actually make a bootable CD with your own pocketstation roms, there is no "ready to use" iso with pirate roms.

A little demonstration here with a pocketstation game I made:

I'm surprised no one commented on this one. Great tool with really nice interface.
Can you manage regular saves also or is it just PocketStation oriented?

Thank you :)
I updated the video link to a new one.
I think it might work for regular save, but didn't tried, the PocketStation is just a memory card with a screen and buttons :)

Hi.

I'm having problems transfering over .BIN files to my PocketStation. I believe i'm using the latest version.
For some reason it shows that the .BIN file is installed, in that it shows it on the left window. But, when I go to use my PocketStation, and press the right arrow, there is no game. Something else I noticed, is when I copy over the file, it doesn't say "Copying..." in the transfer window.

Anyone know what i'm doing wrong?

Thanks.

does your bin file have the correct format ?
can you post it so I can analyze it ?

I have the PSIO device, and I've loaded this Tool, and I was able to load Orion's homebrew on the Pocketstation. Obviously that device has a limited storage capacity.

Realized I needed to use PSOne ISO Maker to create new BIN and CUE files. Then loaded PSIO again, and PSLoader had new files to choose. One thing I notice is that GME files seem fine, but BIN's are not. Those being the BIN's converted from GME to work on emulators and a few small BIN games created that way to begin with.
