    I had to reset the 5.03 ChickHEN R2 (because the PSP was accidently shut off) but now in the Game menu it says that the memory stick has no games. I have ISO files in the ISO folder? Is there a setting I need to change to read the memory stick games?

    You're in ChickHen mode? I'm not sure because I just used a Pandora, but I think to play ISOs you need to go from OFW -> ChickHen -> any cfw (m33, gen, prometheus)

    Yeah, I'm fairly sure ChickHen is just the mid-point on the journey between official and custom firmwares. Now you've got it in ChickHen mode the hard part's over. Upgrade to whatever CFW you'd be most comfortable with (personally I went for 5.50 Prometheus) and play away.

    Is anyone actually reading the OP's post? He had to reactivate Chick Hen R2 because his PSP shut off -> he's a temp CFW user.

    You need to activate the Temp CFW 1st....5.03 Gen or CFWenabler. I don't think you can run ISOs off chickhen. It's just a homebrew enabler.

    ChichkHEN doesn't do ISOs, just homebrew. You need Custom Firmware to do game backups.

    Every time you turn off your PSP (or it freezes or w/e) you need to successfully run ChickHEN and then run some CFW (5.03 GEN-A/B/C, Prometheus) to be able to run ISOs. You should also change the "UMD ISO mode" in the GEN VSH menu to "Sony NP9660".

    I keep hearing that everywhere. What does that do exactly?

    It changes the driver in the PSP so it allows you to run ISOs. Normal ofw doesn't allow that.


    And everyone's pretty much just repeating what I stated first >_>

    Actually not, since the OFW will still not read ISOs (and btw, that option's only in CFWs).
    Usually CFWs use the M33 Driver, but you can also choose the NP9660 driver, which being made by Sony itself, is touted by some as more compatible than M33's.
    I've personally found problems with it, and switched back to M33's ages ago.

    The above poster is incorrect, because UMDs contain ISO files. That explains the existance of a sony-made ISO-loading driver.

    Uhm...whut?
    ISO is an image file created by a computer. Its like a RAR or ZIP archive that contains all the other files. When you burn it to a CD the ISO file does not exist on that CD your computer just burns all the files within that ISO file to the Disc in their correct placements and structure.
    I'm sure that Sony driver is infact a modified version that allows ISO loading.

    Yeah, just switch USB device from Memory Stick to UMD and connect the PSP to the PC while there's a UMD in the drive.

    This is the filesystem of a usual UMD (in this case, GTA):

    No "ISO" files in there [​IMG]

    That's the CFW providing an easy ISO for you to copy. Basically when you copy it reads off the disc and creates that ISO on the fly to put on your PC.
