    alright this mini tutorial is going to tell you how to rip psp game. the pros of a ripped psp game is faster load times. the cons are that they take up room on your psp.

    ripping the game on gen d with prome-4 or lower

    and thats all there is to it for ripping the game using vsh menu and pc.

    ripping the game with psp isotool

    now that you have your iso i'll bet you want to make it smaller to fit more games on your memory stck as well. well the program umd gen will help you with that. it will convert a psp game to iso or cso forfat and let you rip the useless files.

    umd gen tutorial

    i will not tell you where to get games to compress. you know the rules and all that. all i can say is google is your best friend.

    also i dont think this is rule breakin if it is i apologize in advance

    i will add pictures at a later time to help explain

    iso tool
    umd gen

    the guide using iso tool also works on Pro-B5(i think. i havn't used Pro-B5 but i'll upgrade to test if it works). that guide tells you how to rip the umd to mem stick.

    I'd argue that this is Dumping games. Ripping would be removing content to decrease size. Also UMDGen has a 1 click optimise button too (may break some games).

    YACC is also possibly a better tool to compress/decompress with.

    So now you can just put the dumped games into the PSP/GAME folder?

    Am I right in assuming you're SOL if your UMD drive causes your PSP to lock up on start?

    Well can you actually describe what happens a bit better than that? Do you literally mean you power on your PSP to the XMB (the menu) and then put a UMD in (assuming you've tried more than one here because it could indicate a bad UMD) but the PSP drive just endlessly whirs away?
