I've spent the last few hours looking for these and I'm starting to get a headache. All I can find is posts around the web of people requesting this over the last couple of years, and replies along the lines of "that would be cool".
I picked up the adapter on the self-obtained notion that I could use it to install the Independence Exploit
(which allows a PS2 to boot homebrew when booted off a PS1 disc) to a PS2 memory card via my PC. However I'm starting to suspect that I cannot.
Of course all information I've found concerning the install process suggests using a PS2 cheat disc or a modchip to do the install. Buying more gear - especially items that make the exploit redundant! - is not something I'm considering an option here, as the PS2 I'm working with is merely on loan.
So is there such a driver available? If so, what is it called, and where could I find more information about it?
Alternatively, I understand that although it was not originally possible a later update enables the PS3 to copy data to PS2 memory cards. In this case I should be able to convert the exploit to PSV format and transfer it to the PS3 using a USB drive, then get it onto the card itself. Does that sound right?
I also read that the PS3 does not support memory cards of any size other then 8mb, whereas mine happens to be 64mb. Is this still an issue? I can likely borrow an 8mb card if so, once I have the exploit running I should in theory be able to setup as many memory cards as I like using a PS2.
At present I don't have access to the later console (they don't seem to be very popular and I certainly don't intend to buy one), but it'd be worth knowing if this'd work since it may be my only option.
