Importing saved games from PS4 - files not appearing


New Member
Before getting rid of my PS4 I backed up the saved game data onto a USB drive, it created a load of archive 000n.dat files of 4GB each.

I assumed those are the saved games, but in the PS5 when I look for saved game data to import from USB nothing appears on the screen. I backed up the PS5 saved game data to see what the files look like and they are named saved game or something to that effect, not archive.dat.

It looks like I may have exported the wrong kind of data from the PS4? Anyone know if the saved game file format is different on the PS4 and how they are named?
