Yeah, if your PSP is not Modded and it is running on official firmware of SONY, then you should prolly have it modded or have it made into custom firmware...If you don't know how to check the what firmware version your PSP is running...then here is how:
open your PSP, then on the XMB, got SYSTEM SETTINGS then to SYSTEM information. on the top it says SYSTEM SOFTWARE, then check if your firmware version has a m33 suffix...if it doesnt have an m33 at the end, then it is an OFFICIAL firmware so have it modded, my friend...

SOURCE: 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.

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.

I updated my psp version to 6.37 and now i can't download any game because i can't find the ISO file what should i do please reply and fast


If you install an official firmware, you loose all the bonuses that come with having a custom firmware, like runing ISO files. You have to hack your PSP again to be able to play your ISO files.
Just remember that playing ISO's is against the law.

How to download psp iso games for free?


Hello

Since the PlayStation Portable's firmware is susceptible to modification, the Homebrew community has been able to create PSP ISO files that enable you to play video games for the PSP without needing the UMD hard copy. Full PSP ISO files can be downloaded from websites such as PSPiso.com, MegaUpload.com, Torrentspy.com by using various shareware and torrent software. Be warned that downloading games you do not own is considered illegal.

Hi i downloaded some psp iso games, my psp 3000 has ofw 6.30. So i changed the iso to eboot.pbp using this program called psx2psp and after that i put the folder to the psp game folder. then when i tried...


first you need custom firmware to play iso files, second the psx2psp is to change playstation 1 games into psp eboots not psp games, the iso is all you need for psp games if you have custom firmware, you just need to create a folder called ISO in the root of your memory stick and put the iso files in there

Which format of downloaded game will run at psp??


Hello,

Thank you for using Fixya!

If you have a custom firmware (3.71 m33 or higher) then you can play game that is ISO or CSO format. You can also play games in EBOOT.PHB (PS 1 games converted to PSP).

To play ISO or CSO you need to put the file in the ISO folder in the root of your PSP's memory card. And as for the Ebot.php files you need to put that inside the root folder PSP/Game folder.

Hope this was helpful.

Sincerely,
stif_nec

How to install psp games


well after you have downloaded the games that you like in ISO/ CSO format. just copy the game file from your computer to your memory stick... place the files to a folder named ISO if you do have the ISO folder just CREATE a folder in the root directory of your memory stick name it ISO in CAPS otherwise it wont work.

How to download games on psp 3004


There are different kinds of games for the PSP. There are Flash games, ISO/CSO games, PBP Games, etc. Depending on your firmware type, (Custom or Official) there are special kinds you can play:

Flash games are small, quick games you can play on your PSP Browser. They don't require special firmware to run. However, the flash games tend to run slow because of the lack of memory. Download them to your PSP/COMMON Folder and type in the location of the content in the address bar. 

Ex: file:/psp/common/name.swf

For PBP Games, you can download them from the PSN and save them to your PSP/GAME Folder. These games are mostly demos. The PBP Files should have its own folder under PSP/GAME. To play them, go to your game section of your XMB and if you did it correctly, the game should be there. 

Now, for ISO/CSO files. These are Disc image files that can be played on your PSP. They're usually for backup purposes. You save them in your ISO Folder (You might have to make this folder). To play them, just play as you would with a PBP Game.
