    Hello


    I am here with another problem. I have a 16GB memory card which has 6.61 PRO-C and some games installed. I don't know whether the firmware is temporary or permanent.
    I am not a professional since I just joined the homebrew scene of the PSP.

    So now I bought an 8GB card which will have more games since my 16GB one only has 700MB left.

    I transferred a game to the 8GB card, but my PSP can't recognize it after running the "Launch 6.61 PRO" button under Extras tab. I used the 16GB card
    to run the firmware, and then swapped it for the 8GB one.


    Is there a way to transfer the files of the custom firmware to another memory card?

    That's Lightspeed (or Darkspeed, one is for LME and the other for PRO, they're forwarders to those CFWs that don't get lost in the regular software list)

    They install to a subfolder of /PSP/APP so just copy that folder :)

    The actual CFW is in the internal storage, but since you don't have a permanent (true permanent or Infinity) installation you must use an app on the memory stick to launch it

    But when I try to launch Darkspeed from the Games tab, it doesn't start (or is it supposed to be this way?), so should I transfer Darkspeed to the other card?

    If it appears under Games it's the installer (which is physically in /PSP/GAME and requires you to have started the cfw first), the result of the installation is under Extras or Music depending on the setup you chose and physically in /PSP/APP

    No need to use the installer again :)

    Yeah but then how do I run .iso files from another memory card?

    Put them in the /ISO/ folder (outside of "PSP"!), then they'll magically show up under Games after starting the cfw

    Put the new memory stick inside the system, go to settings and format the memory card (If is new nothing should be on it and nothing to lose) Connect the usb to the pc and copy the stuff to the new memory card.

    If you are using the temporary cfw method, then the fast recover boot should be listed under the game on xmb. Run the fast recovery cfw file to enable CFW again, after that, it should be just as normal.
