    You don't have the right system firmware to play the games because you are on official Sony firmware.

    In order to play .isos, you need custom firmware, such as 3.40 OE-A or 3.52 M33. In order to get to custom firmware, you need to get to 1.50 first. If you are anywhere between 1.51 and 3.50, follow the guide here:

    If you are at 3.51 or 3.52, then you have to use Pandora's Battery and magic memory stick, a battery that will bring your system to service mode and then install 1.50 onto your system from the memory stick.

    To make Pandora's battery, you have to have a friend with custom firmware or ask someone here to make it for you. If worse comes to worse, you can buy one on ebay.
