1

Update your PSP Firmware. Before you begin, make sure your PSP is running the latest firmware version 6.61. If your PSP is able to connect to the internet, you can update it over the internet by selecting System Update in the Settings menu. Otherwise, use the following steps to update your PSP:

Download the latest firmware version to your computer.

Connect your PSP to your computer with a USB, or insert your Memory Stick Duo.

If your computer does not have a memory card reader, you can use an external card reader or purchase a Memory Stick Duo micro-SD card adapter for use with your PSP, and use a micro-SD USB adapter for use on your computer.

If you are using a new memory stick with your PSP, select the Settings menu in your PSP, and then select Format Memory Stick to format the memory card for use with your PSP.

Open the "PSP" folder on your PSP or Memory Stick Duo.

Open the "GAME" folder in the PSP folder.

Create a new folder called "UPDATE".

Disconnect your PSP from your computer or reinsert Memory Stick Duo.

Select the Game menu on your PSP's home screen (XMB).

Select the "Memory Stick" option in the Game menu.

Select the Update File.

Install Custom Firmware for your PSP. In addition to having the latest firmware, you also need to download custom firmware for PSP firmware 6.61. Use the following steps to install custom firmware on your PSP:

Go to this website.

You can also search for PSP 6.61 cfw in Google.

Scroll down and click the link that says Download the PSP 6.61 PRO-C2 custom firmware.

Connect your PSP to your computer with a USB, or insert your Memory Stick Duo in your card reader or USB adapter.

Open the "PSP" folder on your PSP or Memory Stick Duo.

Finding a Download Source


1

Find a website that has PSP ISOs. PSP ISOs are the disk images that PSP games use. There are many websites that let you download PSP ISOs. You can search PSP ISOs in Google to search for websites that have PSP ISOs for download.

Some websites include Emuparadise, Free Roms, or Roms Mania.

Warning: Many free game and ROM sites are notorious for containing viruses and malware. Make sure you have antivirus software installed on your computer and that it is up to date before downloading PSP ISO or ROMS on your computer. Run a virus scan after you download your games.


2

Search for a game to download. Many download websites have a list of letters you can click to browse for games alphabetically. You can also use the search bar to search for a game by name.


3

Download the game ISO. Once you choose a game download, click on the game title. Then click on the download links. You may be able to choose a specific download source or mirror; if so, click one and wait for the download to start.

Some games are split in 3-4 parts depending on the size. If a game is split, you need to download all parts.

Transferring The ISO file To Your Console


1

Connect your PSP or Memory Stick Duo to your computer. Connect your PSP to your computer using the USB cable, or connect your Memory Stick Duo to your computer using a card reader drive, or using a USB adapter.


2

Create a new folder called "ISO" on the Memory Stick or PSP. This is the folder you will copy your PSP games to.


3

Extract the PSP rar files on your computer. When you download PSP games, they are usually downloaded in RAR format. The RAR file contains the ISO files for your games. You need a program such as WinZip or WinRAR to extract RAR files.

You can extract RAR files for free using 7-zip.


4

Copy the ISO files to the "ISO" folder on your PSP or Memory Stick Duo. When you have finished extracting the ISO files, copy the files to the ISO folder on your PSP or Memory Stick Duo.

If the game has many ISO files, you will need to copy all of them to the ISO folder.

If you are downloading PS1 games, you will need to copy those files to the "PSP" folder on your PSP or Memory Stick Duo. Not the ISO folder.


5

Disconnect your PSP or reinsert your Memory Stick Duo. After you have finished copy the ISO files to the ISO folder, disconnect your PSP from your computer, or eject your Memory Stick Duo and reinsert it into your PSP.


6

Select the "Game" menu on your PSP. Use the XMB to select the "Game" menu.


7

Select the Memory Stick option. This folder contains all the games you have installed on your Memory Stick.


8

Select the game you downloaded to open it. If the game installed correctly, it should appear in your list of games. You can open it the same as you would for any game on your PSP.[1]
