    I am not new to modding consoles but I am a little confused about my psp. I got 3.03-C installed and got a homebrew chess game going but I want to back up my UMD games on my 4G mem stick. I have been doing a lot of reading forums and can't figure out if I have to install fastloader v.7 to play ISO's but I can't get the smiley face icon to show up under mem stick....all I get is 2 corrupt data icons. I would really appreciate any help...you guys really seem to be on top of this stuff....thank you before hand for any shared knowledge!

    For firmware 3.03 oe-c you do not need fastloader or anything like that. All you have to do is make an ISO folder in the root of your memory stick. so it would go in MS0/ and the put ISO in there. Once you have the folder, you can just dump ISO'S in there.

    ok...i see...I really appreciate that...I was also under the impression that the firmware would change more things on my psp....like the icons and things....but I am reading that you have to do that with another program? I was also curiose....when I go into safe mode with the right trigger and change the kernal it doesn't change under the system software is that right?

    Ok I see....so it really just does a lot of changes behind the scene completely...very interesting.....I am very impressed with you guys and your knowledge and DarkAlex must be some kind of genius....I would say he should get a job with Sony but then I wouldn't have so much fun with my psp...thank you guys....I really want to ask more but it's so fun to learn...are there any home brew apps or games anyone would recommend to get?

    I was also wondering does the 3.03OE-C play CSO's.....and if not how can I change them to ISO's...also if I were to download a game and it had a bunch of files can I change that into an ISO and if so with what? I have read a lot of forums but nothing seemed to add up to me?

    yes u can play ISO's on 3.03 OE-C. Winrar recognizes ISO's as a compressed archive and places it's icon over them. So make sure u dont extract the iso.

    try booting ur PSP into recovery mode, switch the kernel to 1.50, and then place the homebrews in PSP\GAME and retry.

    Hexitnow I really appreciate your time and effort....I just now realized I had to have my own WAD files from DOOM....I have every copy of DOOM on my old PC.....what exactly are WAD files and I guess I'll just have to download one?

    You need to have your own wads, which you put in the wad folder. You can just google Doom 1 Wad, or Doom 2 wad, and download them. And Pwads are like custom mods, which work in conjunction with the original doom wads.
