The difference between Official Sony Firmware and Custom Firmware is that Official firmware will only run games on discs in the UMD slot, while Custom firmware will allow you to back up games you already own and run them from the memory stick. Running games from the memory stick as an ISO is much faster than from the disc, and it only took Sony years and years to realize this and implement it on the new psp-go model.

Shops that sell PSP's will be forbidden to provide you with Custom firmware because many people think this is only for stealing games, not for running 'homebrew' applications written by enthusiasts or backing up games you already own in case you scratch or destroy your umd disk.

Yes, you will need a service or pandora battery to reload custom firmware into your psp.

You can create a pandora battery and the 'magic' memory stick from any psp already running custom firmware. You can also buy them online, and if you look in the local classified ads website for where you live, you can probably find people offering that downgrading service.

I cannot run through the steps here to create your own, but tutorials are all over the net and sites like youtube.

How to install the game in psp


Hi.
First, you need to have a Custom Firmware (CFW) in order to play games using your Memory Stick. If you got your PSP with the Sony's Official Firmware, you cannot play games from your card.
If you got CFW already, all you need to do is place the .CSO or .ISO files to your ISO directory. You can do this by copying the .CSO or .ISO from from your computer to E:\ISO (where E is the drive representing your PSP).
After that, remove your PSP from PC and go to Game/Memory Stick and start playing.

How to install a game


There are two ways to install games on your Sony PSP (Play Station Portable).

The legit way is to buy original UMDs and insert them in your PSP and game on.

For the not-so-affluent, you can install Custom Firmware (CFW) on your PSP and thendownload games off the internet and copy them to your PSP and play them.
Play ISO / CSO Games on your PSP

-

1. Install Custom Firmware:

- There are scores of tutorials on the net on how to do this. The easier way out would be to go to any console shop, and get your PSP modded with CFW for around Rs. 200 / $5.

- A detailed tutorial on this coming up soon.

2. Download the Game ISO / CSO.

- Next, search for the game you want, and download the ISO / CSO of the game from torrent sites or any warez forums. Most of the times, the ISO / CSO is compressed into a RAR file so you will need to extract it first using WINRAR.

3. Copy the ISO / CSO to your PSP

- Connect the PSP to your computer using the data cable and goto Settings > USB Connection.

- Open your PSP drive in My Computer, and goto the ISO folder. If it isn't there already, create a new folder and rename it to ISO.

- Copy your ISO or CSO files to the ISO folder and disconnect your PSP from the computer.

4. Play the Game on your PSP

- Goto the GAME icon > Memory Stick and select the Game you just copied. Press 'X' and game on. icon_biggrin.gif

Note:
1. You need to have CFW (Custom Firmware) installed in order to use ISO / CSO games on your PSP. The latest version of CFW is 5.00 M33-4.
2. The latest PSP 2004 with TA 088 v3 chips and the PSP 3000 aren't moddable yet.

Why i cant play cso or iso games on my vre


Your CSO/ISO files should be in your ISO folder in the root of your memory stick. You might have to make this folder if you don't already have it. Also, your UMD mode have to be set to NO UMD REQUIRED, or M33 Driver. You must have Custom Firmware to play ISO/CSO games.

Iso/cso won't run to PSP version 4.20


You cannot play .iso or .cso files (or any homebrew games) on your PSP unless you have firmware 1.5 or a custom firmware. Any "off-the-shelf" firmware such as 4.2 will not support these types of files. They will just show up as "Corrupted Data".

You can go through the process of downgrading your firmware from 4.2 to 1.5, then from 1.5 you may upgrade to a custom firmware such as 5.00 m33-4. Doing so would require a good deal of technical know-how and a LOT of patience. If you do not want to risk ruining your PSP, do NOT try this. Research methods of downgrading such as "Pandora's Battery" and other firmware downgraders.

You were able to download games from the PSP website because they are programmed to play on the current firmware. Even if you were to (somehow) properly convert the .iso or .cso files to an EBOOT.PBP file, it would not run unless you have firmware 1.5 or custom.

Do it relly works?


The reading of ISO games doesn't depend on your memStick...it really is about the firmware of your PSP, wether it is a Custom Firmware (meaning it has been modded/installed with a hacked firmware) or an Official Firmware by Sony...If your PSP firmware version has a M33 suffix, then it can play most ISO/CSO games...on the other hand, if your PSP DOES NOT have a M33 suffix, then it is an Official Firmware by SONY therefore, it CANNOT play ISO/CSO games and other homebrew apps...
