    U gotta install nodrm plugin i think it’s called. Download autoplugin plugin for the vita. And run that on the vita and you can pick the plugins from there and it will install

    make sure PSP games are in ux0: pspemu/iso/
    for ps vita games
    - download nonpdrm.skprx from https://github.com/TheOfficialFloW/NoNpDrm/releases/latest
    - copy nonpdrm.skprx to ux0:tai and add
    ux0:tai/nonpdrm.skprx
    to your config.txt under the *KERNEL section (or if your tai folder is ONLY in ur0: add to ur0:tai, and change the path you add to ur0:tai/nonpdrm.skprx)
    - reboot (this is not optional, kernel modules require a reboot to load)
    For playing the dumps:

    - Unzip the dump
    - Connect your vita to your PC
    - Copy the entire contents of the Game Title folder to the ux0: partition (with default vitashell settings, this is what you will see in USB mode)
    - Disconnect your vita from your PC
    - In vita shell, go up until you are at the partition list
    - Press Triangle and then select Refresh livearea, after it completes it should say 'Refreshed 1 item' (or more, if you installed multiple games), this can take several attempts, sometimes it doesn't detect the change
    - The game's bubble should now be on the livearea and the game should be playable.
    - If the game has any updates, install them through the livearea as if it were a legitimate game.

    I did what the guide told me, the psp iso's are in the right folder which is pspeme/psp/iso also the vita games are in app/ folder, I also refreshed the live area but nothing :(

    I also tried copying the tai folder to the ux0, still the same

    if you copied the filepath for your psp iso folder then theres a spelling mistake in pspemu
    also is nonpdrm in your tai folder

    The pspemu folder was already there, I just added the ISO folder. Nonpdrm files is the tai folder yes.

    I can provide a screenshot if you want.

    Vitashell works so it means my vita is hacked right? Im on latest firmware btw

    Here you go. And thanks for the adrenaline help, it should be in pspemu/iso not in pspemu/psp/iso.

    The config file is fine just make sure the files are where the config says ur0:tai/
    eg. ur0:tai/nonpdrm.skprx

    Are your backups in the ux0:app folder?
    If they are can you take a screenshot

    Have you tried going into the home in vitashell which lists ux0, ur0 etc and Press Triangle and then select Refresh livearea, after it completes it should say 'Refreshed X items' X = the number of games

    check if that one site -- its tsv is working. also, show your config.txt, editing out the site but putting it in the same format.

    i didnt get you.
    there is no problem in psp emu, it works fine. The only thing im having problems are the nonpdrm backups are not working

    And im not using sd2vita, im using an official ps vita memory card.
