  1. Help: PS3's Internal PS2 Memory Card Malfunction

    Alright, need some help guys. Been playing Ar Tonelico on my PS3. It's a PS2 game, so my PS3 is using an internal memory card for it.

    There has been problems. Sometimes I go to save, and no data is registered. It used to be that pulling out and trying again would do the trick. At one point my data was corrupted, but because I was still playing I could resave.

    "King Arthur"/"Cas-ko" (not Tamamo-no-Mae. This was actually the strangest finding I had.)
    "Ryougi Shiki"/"Tohno Shiki" (still debatable, however - "Kokutou Mikiya" is a composite character)
