    Some ISOs need to be compressed to play with the help of UMDGEN thats why I couldn't play ISOs, also make sure your ISO folder is on the root of your ms, and format your ms stick.

    and for you UMD drive I unno whats the problem, you could have broken it from the inside.

    download a cso or another iso and try.

    Simple and Easy ISO Compression

    WARNING - if your file needs a ppf patch you will need to patch it before you compress - or your patch will not work

    This is just a very simple and easy way to compress your ISO’s, not a particularly great compression, but you can know anything from 15 to 500mb off of the size of the ISO.
    This is simple achieved by unpacking and recompiling the ISO,
    Below I explain…

    For this part of the guide you need:

    WinRar - http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm - these are trial versions, if you do not have WinRAR then it’s a program you should think about purchasing, its one of only 3 programs I can say that about.

    UMDGEN - http://www.umdgen.com/utilities.html

    And of course an ISO.

    So here goes….

    Download and install WinRAR – if needed

    Download UMDGEN and open it up, just make yourself comfortable with it, look to see what the various buttons do, when you’ve done that just minimise it, we don’t need it yet.

    Now go and find your ISO (check the size)
    my computer is set up so that WinRAR will automatically open ISO files by double clicking them, yours may be different – if it is right click on your ISO and select Extract Files see image below, click to enlarge

    Now if you are used to WinRAR you can skip this part, if not – then you will see this screen –




    Extract the file to a folder on the desktop, mine is called AGAME – name it whatever the name of the ISO is.

    Once it’s finished you will find your game on the desktop – open it and you will see a folder named PSP_GAME and a file called UMD_DATA.BIN

    If you do that part is done

    Now open UMDGEN back up – and move those two files onto the right hand side of the screen, using the old drag and drop technique

    Now go to File -> save as -> and save the file as an ISO (name it whatever the original name was)

    And that’s it once it’s done - check the size – see how much you lost, below is the test sizes I did for this guide. (Click to enlarge)




    As you can see I lost all together 540mb, pretty nifty for five minutes work right?

    this have never seen a custom firmware, still not clear how to compress a iso also im getting these isos downloaded i would think they would come precompressed

    ISOs, have the extension ISO, and compresses ISOs have the extension CSO

    I'll have a vid tut for compression soon, so bear with the instructions I gave you above.
