What's this

PSX Memory Card Manager is a combination of hardware and software which make it possible to transfer data to and from a Playstation memory card and a PC. The software runs under the Linux operating system.

Screen shots

PSX Memory Card Manager uses the Qt Gui toolkit. Here are a few screenshots:



  • A memory card
  • A PC with a working parallel port
  • The hardware interface (see below)


  • Linux
  • X11
  • Qt-2.3.0 (may work with other versions)
  • any rescent version of GCC

Hardware interface

To enable memory card I/O, PSX Memory Card Manager uses the Playstation Peripheral Bus Library(psxpblib), by Richard Davies. Therefore, PSX Memory Card Manager should be compatible with all hardware interfaces psxpblib supports.

As far as I know, psxpblib works great with the Direct Pad Pro interface.
Here is the schematic for the DPP interface.
