How to copy VMU files to a PC?

If during your gamer life you have already lost saves from your favorite games or your memory card got full, then you understand why this tutorial is important.

I will list here some things in which this will be useful to you:

  • Back-Up your Phantasy Star Online character;
  • Use the same saves that you use in your Dreamcast in an emulator;
  • Download DLCs using a PC and transfer the files to your Dreamcast;

What is necessary?

  • A SD card adapter for Dreamcast;
  • A SD Card;
  • A CD burned with DreamShell (If your console doesn’t have a mod bios);

Tutorial:

  • Turn on your Dreamcast with the DreamShell CD and then select File Manager.
