MemCard PRO for PlayStation 1 (Classic Grey)
The wait is over! 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 that solves the problem of storing your game's saves forever.
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.
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 and control the 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!
We really plan to add more features to MemCard PRO, and everything will be addeed for free, through a firmware update.

I got a pair of those to integrate them with my M.O.D.E. ODE. I wanted to utilize the automatic creation and switching of the virtual memory cards as well as copy all of my existing savefiles from "real" memory cards over to the virtual ones of the MemCard Pro. The MemCard Pro itself comes in a plastic zip bag in a cushioned little box. The build quality of the card itself is good, it feels sturdy, the micro SD Card slot is spring loaded and the MemCard Pro itself sits just firm enough for it to not slide out on accident but also not too tight for it to get stuck like cheap knock-off memory cards. Included in the box is also a QR code for the digital manual which explains all the features as well as how to set them up. After setting the MemCard Pro up it works like you would expect it to: It automatically creates 8 virtual memory cards through which you can cycle through with the two buttons found on the unit itself, or through a button combination on your controller. It also reliably detects the games you are loading from an ODE and will automatically create and/or mount the memory cards specific to that game. And if you REALLY need to you can always create and/or switch to another set of 8 memory cards via another controller button combination. The WiFi features are a nice bonus and easy to set up as well. With them you can download and manage your virtual memory cards but also configure the hardware and software to your liking, as well as performing firmware updates and enabling FTP access. The UI for the WebApp is also clean and simple. There is just one nitpick that I have with the MemCard Pro: you have to go through the WiFi setup in order to be able to access the WebApp itself. Suppose I take my MemCard Pro over to a friends PS1 that isn't equipped with an ODE, I'd need to set it up in a foreign network just to be able to mount a specific memory card within the WebApp. Another example I could think of is if the user doesn't want to use the WiFi features and just prefers to disable them without having to set them up first. An "Access WebApp" button on the setup screen would be neat for those scenarios. But other than that this is an excellent product and a must have for any ODE owner. After transfering my savegames over to the proper virtual memory cards I no longer have to manually keep track of which memory card holds which savefiles - it does it all for you and better than any human would. The WebApp and FTP access also makes it very easy to backup, restore and modify your savefiles, the possibilities are nearly endless...
Great build quality and does exactly as described! I have two of those and preordered MemCard PRO2 :)
Great build quality and does exactly as described! Have two of this now waiting for the MemCard PRO2 :)
Got my MemCard PRO for PS1 just a few weeks ago and I am so incredibly impressed with how easy it is to use. Easy to setup and use, and even easier once you get it connected to WiFi and setup to manage it through the web interface. I've now pre-ordered the PS2 version and about to order the GameCube version. You won me as a customer with these! Fingers crossed on a Dreamcast MemCard PRO :)
It is simply awesome, I was finally able to put away all my old PS1 memory cards and just use the MemCard Pro that even with a 1 GB microSD has more memory than I will ever need
Absolutely brilliant, great build quality and does exactly as described! Definitely buying a PS2 one now. :)
It's awesome! Just put an old micro sd card that you already have laying around and that's it! And it's works beautifully with the xstation!
Excellent product, does exactly what it says it does.
I'm very happy with this MemCard Pro. Not worrying about saves on PS1 real hardware feels like magic.
