    I wonder what's the average size of a PSP ISO?
    I've found 'Sonic Rivals' on RS. It's a 85 mb RAR.

    Is it that small? or is that because it's compressed in RAR?

    I'm asking because I wonder how many ISOs would fit in a 1GB card.

    Thanks!

    It depends what is in the game. Sometimes they contain 5-6 languages (European games), so when I rip my UMDs I try and remove any extra languages I can (I think Sonic Rivals included Korean and Japanese so I removed those). The size of the resulting files can be anywhere from 50mb to 1.8Gb

    Thanks...

    What about the average size of a game state save?
    Would a 32mb card be sufficient for 8 saves?

    Most games use less than 300k per save. The 32Mb card will hold about 100 saves. Or more as some games save multiple saves in the same slot using the same amount of data.

    Oops..! I forgot to ask one more Q:

    Where is the downloadable content saved? For instance, I'll get Wipeout Pure. Where are the upgrades and packs saved? In the UMD (is it rewritable?) or in the mem card?

    I'm not entirely sure but I believe downloadable content is saved in the same folder as the game-saves. So the wipeout tracks would be in the folder wipeout creates for it's saves (I don't know Wipeout's SCUS code off the top of my head).

    Hmm.. but of course it's not saved on the UMD..
    I guess I'd need a bigger card then; 1GB for example.
