Download these 2 applications from here: CDRwin: http://www.goldenhawk.com/cdrwin.htm ZiNgA BuRgA's popstation: http://www.psp-hacks.com/forums/viewtopic.php?id=60371 (download the older ver - the one that generate both eboot and key) 2.

A: Upgrade it to 3.02 Oe-b and above. Q: I have the newest Oe but the iso I just created can't work. A: It may be a bad rip. Q: Do I need to put other files (bin and cue files?) into the game folder? A: Nope, you can delete all. Only the EBOOT.PBP and KEYS.BIN file is needed. Q: Can I put it in GAME150/271 folder instead? A: It's better to just put it in the game folder. Q: This message "to use this content u must activate the system" pops up everytime I wanna load a ps1 eboot. A: If you're at 3.03 oe-b and above, you try reinstalling it and it should work. If you're at other custom fw or 3.03 itself, downgrade back to 1.5 fw and upgrade to 3.03 oe-b and above for it to only work. Q: Whenever I try to generate a eboot file I didn't get the keys.bin, what is wrong? A: I think you downloaded zinga's newer version, just download an older version and you're ready to go. Q: The file I downloaded has a weird format, how am I supposed to make it a readable eboot in psp? A: First off, google for the file extension and find the programme that is able get the content out. If all cannot be done, just loan the game disc from a game shop or torrent for the eboot version. Q: Final fantasy 8 hangs on me and some other games won't even start?! A: FF8 has a tendency to hang during battles or some scene, juz set scene to still and you should be able to play the game through. As for other games, it's either a bad rip, compressed version of it won't work or it isn't supported yet in the popstation. Q: Where can I get these widely talked about OE custom firmwares? A: From psp-hacks, qj.net or simply google for it. Q: Where can I download these ps1 games? A: Google is your best friend, so are the torrent sites. Credits to psp-hacks forum.
