    You need to have at least a 512MB card for most Isos these days. You need a USB 2.0 connected to your PSP while it's in USB mode. Then you should see a screen on your computer that corresponds to your PSP. You can now navigate thru your Mem stick. The very first screen that pops up is called the "ms0". (It stands for Memory stick O and is the key to Flash0. If you choose to unhide your hidden files, you'll see ms0.)

    Right click and create a brand new folder in your ms0 called ISO in all capital letters like that. You put your isos in there and you're ready to rock. Depending on which FW you have, you can then launch your iso from the XMB or thru DevHook or w/e.

    Have fun!

    DevHook emulates FW. (Firmware) Which FW version do you have? I would recommend 3.03 OE over DevHook, but for either, you have to have a 1.50 PSP. There are downgraders, but you gotta start at 1.50.

    There are options to play games (Isos) via USB, but you don't have to. Once the game is on your mem stick, just launch it and play.

    Hey man, how you doing?! It HAS been a long time! Shit, I was still using DevHook v0.44 up until OE. I never updated to SE b/c I didn't like it. So I was at 1.50 forever.

    A/f/a downgrading PSPs, the only PSP I ever had to downgrade was my old 2.00 using the MPH method. (Which I upgraded from 1.50 to play GTA LCS, speak of the devil.) I've never been unfortunate enough to get stuck w/ anything higher than 2.00 and I have no idea how to downgrade anything else. Sorry, mate.

    I hope all is well for you and you had a great new year and christmas. Did you get a ton of PSP games and crap? lol

    Talk to ya, homie.

    ms0 is the place where you can see MEMSTICK.IND MSTK_PRO.IND PSP & MP_ROOT, aka the root of your Memory Stick. You need to make a folder here called ISO to put your isos in.

    Sup Guano, long time no see around here! You an OE-Ber yet?

    You should mosdef upgrade to OE. Who doesn't wanna play PSX games on their PSP? That's something I never even dreamed of. :D It's incredible. A perfect FW. You can do so many things with it.

    Listen to this:

    I lost a VIRGIN 1.50 PSP - Ceramic White mind you - and I have never looked back. It was worth losing status (1.50 status) to be able to have all that I do. Your PSP will become much like Blade. All of the benefits of both FWs and none of the drawbacks. (Not that there were any drawbacks to 1.50) You get the visualizer for mp3s as well. Too cool!

    I'm in the middle of playing Resident Evil, FF VII, etc anywhere I go now. It's great.

    A/f/a Christmas... pfffft. I'm not a kid anymore, so all I get are clothes. lol

    Dude, you should hit me up on MSN sometime. Ask me for my MSN if you want... In fact, I'll be on there tonight and I can help you set up your OE if ya like. :D

    Yea, NPDYNA. I'm an OB'er. lol I was going to respond in one of the threads you posted in the other day, but I didn't know if you would see it.

    Did you have a good Christmas and new year too? Hope so. Anything new going on w/ your PSP? You lovin' this OE or what? I know I am. I even got the screenshot mod working for the PSone emu, so I've gotten some nice PSP walls from Parasite Eve and stuff. TIIIIGHT.

    @DafPhillz: Yes, that would be the ms0. It's the ROOT.

    Sure thing. Only problem is I gotta leave work in like 15 mins and I won't be home until later. So if you're gonna be on later tonight (maybe in like 1 hour) then I can help you then. a/f/a links, here's all you'll need:

    3.02 OE-A:

    3.02 EBOOT: (It's ok that it's Japanese, you're upgrading past it anyway.)

    3.03 EBOOT:
    http://dl.qj.net/PSP-Firmware-3.03-PSP/pg/12/fid/11844/catid/163

    As soon as you're done, make sure you go into recovery mode and set the kernel on 1.50. Then you'll be all set and I'll help you w/ the rest later on.

    Good luck. (It's easy)
