There are a few "hard" ways by using the console itself:
- transfer through serial cable to PC, console needs to be chipped to boot burned CD, need serial port on PC, need to solder custom cable
- use cheating device like Xplorer/Xploder and transfer through parallel cable that connects to it and PC, needs parallel port on PC
both need old enough PS1 that still has parallel/serial ports.
Or you could send your card to someone for dumping, perhaps I could do it for you as I have all that gear that I use for emulator development.

I'm not clear as to how it works, but the comments about the product suggest it can be used to backup memory cards to PC. You may need a converter to change the raw data to an emulator-readable format, but I'm not clear on that, either. Emulators now may be smart enough to recognize any common memory card data formats.

Luckily serial-to-USB cables are quite cheap now. I had to buy a converter box for my Wacom Intuos tablet (from 2000) and it was around $50 back in 2002. Not only that, but the drivers weren't easy to come by. Now they're like $10-15, and I'd bet the drivers are built into Win7 and other OS!
Problem with the Dexdrive is that you need a serial (I think) port for the thing.
