    This is a PS1 to PSP game converter noob-proof guide seeing that many of the threads here are related to this problem.

    What you need:
    -3.02 OE-B and above
    -CDRwin
    -Zinga's Popstation

    Just follow these instructions and you'll be playing ur ps1 games b4 you even know it.

    1. 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. Put PSX game that ya wanna rip in the computer drive.

    3. Run CDRwin, choose to extract disc, choose a title for ur game and press start.

    4. Run Zinga's popstation and browse for the bin file that is ripped from the ps1 disc and click "go".

    5. After the processing's done, look in your output folder you selected and you should see a EBOOT.PBP and KEYS.BIN file.

    6. Place these in ms0:\PSP\GAME\(Game title name folder) folder and you're ready to go. Eg, for MGS game, put in ms0:\PSP\GAME\MGS.




    FAQ:

    Q: I have 3.02 Oe-a but the game doesn't seem to load.
    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.

    The bin file will be generated after being ripped by CDRwin.

    Nope, only CDRwin.

    Most of the ones from torrent are the full rip..which means the bin files and stuff..which means you still have to go back to this method.

    Oh..the zinga's popstation program will compress the ps1's bin file and convert it to eboot..so it's already compressed when you follow my instructions.

    ISO, CUE, PBP, IMG & BIN format all could be compressed via zinger's popstation appli which means eboot can be compressed.

    what about psx files taken off torrents. We can cancel the CDRwin
    step right?

    EDIT: does it come in EBOOT.pbp file like rickrula2 said?
