    To be clear, I need to know wether you have a FAT PSP or a SLIM PSP.

    If you have a FAT PSP then you have to use POPSloader, get it HERE.

    For teh SLIM PSP, you have to find a way to convert the PSX games to EBOOT.PBPs. I don't know how but I think you can using PBP Unpacker.

    im using a fat PSP, i know how to make them into EBOOTS etc, but when i activate CFE(music note+L trig) 3 options come up USBhostfs Iso redirection and 2 for nethosts, when i select USBhostfs Iso redirection it brings up my PSP ISO's and my EBOOTS but when i selct an EBOOT i get the following error message : Error Loading Module, do you think the pops loader will resolve this?

    thanks

    Can you give me a step-by-step instruction on how to do this?
    I have a fat psp 3.71 M33-4.
    I have no idea how to use it.
    Please help?

    Many thanks,

    CFE is really simple to use if its for playing PSP ISO's via USB, ill copy the read me into here as its easy to follow

    Copy the content of the "release" folder to the root of your memory stick.

    Take a look at the file "cfe.config" under "ms0:/seplugins/cfe"

    with the cfe.config, its reccomended to change the last line to show your IP address(this is so usbhostfs_pc can pick up the details) you have to make sure you have a folder named ISO in the same location as the usbhostfs_pc program(as it directly links to that folder so make sure your ISO's are in that folder)

    Enable cfe_vsh.prx and cfe_game.prx under the m33 recovery menu.


    Set cpu speed to default under the m33 recovery menu.(i think you have set the 3.71 kernal for this to work)

    once youve done this connect the USB to your PC and PSP(DONT toggle USB mode, its not needed)

    Push "Note + Volume Down" (Note refers to the music note ot the psp)on the psp to see available commands.


    To use usbhost iso streaming : after executing usbhostfs_pc on the computer,
    type "Note + L" on the psp. 3 options will show up in white letters(i think, cant really remember)then use the home key to select the first option, and it should load your game.

    i would reccomend downloading the CFE pack(ive only used the 1.9 version) directly from the maker or QJ.net(most trusted ones that ive seen, but its just personal opinion)

    Hope this helps its mainly from memory as i bricked my PSP a few weeks ago doing silly things with it lol

    Thanx CobraUnit!

    I will try it out again tonight.

    Although I tried to do that already exactly as you have described.

    And when I try to start usbhostfs_pc on the pc in the windows folder(the folder that came with CFE) I get an error saying i need a lib...dll or something.

    I found that dll file in another folder called driver. So when I put the usbhostfs_pc app in that folder it does work.

    But after I press the "Note + L" and choose the first option, I get the message "cannot get remote list"

    So I'm stuck there. But I'll try to it step by step again and check the kernel and the ip-address as you described.

    I'll let you know anyway.
    Tough luck on your bricked baby.... no way of unbricking???

    Thanx

    to install it, copy the two files inculuded (vsh and the other one) and copy it it to the "seplugins" (without the quotes) folder in the root of your PSP. If it's not there, add it.

    Then restart your psp. Once its off, hold the R trigger and open turn your psp on dont forget to keep holding the R trigger. Once you see recovery mode, let go of the R trigger and go into "Plugins" and set the POPSLoader plugin to "Enable" by just pressing X on it. It'ss say next to the plugin title if it's "Enabled" or "Desabled".

    In the meantime I have checked pspslimhacksdotcom and checked the tut "Stream ISO files by USB with CFE"

    This guy does a nice job explaining how to do it exactly I'll post it here also.
    ----------------------------
    Stream ISO files by USB with CFE
    Some people have trouble getting this to work so I thought I'll tell everybody how to set it up. I used Windows XP.

    First of all download Custom Firmware Extender if you haven't already.

    Basic Setup
    Extract the contents to a folder somewhere. Copy the contents of the "release" folder into your memory stick.
    Boot up the PSP into recovery by holding R when turning on. Enable the plugins under the plugins menu.

    Setting up host
    Find the "windows" folder that you extracted. Go to "driver" and copy "libusb0.dll" into the "windows" folder that you were just at.

    Streaming ISO's
    Connect the PSP to your computer with the USB cable.
    Press and hold the note (&#9834;) button, and press L. A menu will come up. Press home on "Usbhost Iso redirection".

    A dialog will pop up on your computer screen directing you to install a driver for your PSP. Choose the option that lets you find the driver yourself. When it asks for the location, browse to the "windows" folder, then select "driver".
    The drivers will install.

    You are now set up. Place the ISO's in the ISO folder of windows.
    To play, run "usbhostfs_pc.exe" in the windows folder. The hold down note (&#9834;) and press L, then home like before.

    If you need screens, please tell me. Also tell me if you think I've missed out something.

    Note: If it hangs at the black screen when starting up, take the UMD out if you have one inside.
    --------------------------------
    He also answered a question and said

    ------------------
    Q:Now what about that wifi mode?

    A:Do you want to me to make a tut for that too? I think I forgot how to do it. I prefer USB over wifi.
    just go to ms0:\seplugins\cfe and open the config file. put your ip address at the bottom.

    Q:Ok, I changed the ip to mine and I ran nethost but it says "could not find remotelist"

    A:It works for me. Reboot and try again. I don't think it works after using USBhost. Remember to start the PC app first.
    -------------------

    I hope this will help me and others dealing with similar problems.

    Thanx

    yeah.... I've had no luck so far.
    I keep getting the message 'Could not get remote list'

    I followed all the instructions step by step, but still no luck.
    Maybe because I have 3.71 M33-4....
    If this IS the problem, then I'm sorry for being in this forum with useless questions.

    If someone DOES have advice.... please give it to me

    Finally!!!
    I got it working.
    The problem was the driver.... I had not installed the driver on my laptop.

    I tried to do it on my pc and then it asked me for the driver, on my laptop it asked me also but i just clicked ahead without actually installing. When windows said the hardware was properly installed in a tray message. I automatically assumed it was ok.

    Anyway thanks for the help.

    folker,

    What you need to do:
    - Open your device manager--> Right-click My computer-> Manage-> Device Manager Keep this window open
    - Connect your PSP via USB-cable
    - You will see an unknown USB device pop up in your device list. Right-click or double-click it as soon as you see it -- remember you will have to be fast otherwise it will be gone again and you won't see it until you disconnect and connect your PSP again
    - Go to the driver tab and choose 'update driver' and browse to the CFE folder then select "windows" folder, then select "driver".The drivers will install.

    Remember to be fast to click the unknown device, just keep connecting and disconnecting till you get it right.I hope this will help you.
    Ciao
