Well, to many people have been asking me how to play PS1 games on the PSP, so i decided to make this. I won't be saying how to get an ISO from the PS1 CD, because you will be downloading it anyway.
I'm going to be using PSX2PSP V1.4.2 so you can download this from here

Once you have downloaded that, extract it with either WinRAR or 7-Zip (If you have already got one of them, which is highly likely you will have, you don't need to download)

When you have done, go into the folder and click on the PSX2PSP icon. For this guide I'm going to be using theme mode.

Once your running it, click on Convert Menu (I will be doing Customize PBP after)
Now click on the three ... button where ISO/PBP File option is and find your PS1 game,
and then click on the other ... button where Output PBP folder option is and choose where you want your EBOOT to go (Preferably on the PC, not your PSP)
You don't need to do anything with the Game title/Save title/Game ID/Save ID it will do it for you unless however you click here find your game that you are converting, and see if it needs a different Game ID
Plus, if you have a game that needs two or more discs, you can use Muti-boot feature! Just click the drop down box, and click 2/3/4/5 for the extra disc!

Some of you might get an error saying you need BASE.PBP, what you need to do is google it, and download it then put the file in your PSX2PSP folder.

Now that your done with the Convert Menu, click on Customize PBP this is the fun bit

Icon image; What the icon will look like when you are scrolling though your XMB games or if you haven't got a Icon ainmation
Background image; self explainable really.
Imformation image; You know when your looking at a game, and it's got the text over the background image? Yeah that's it.
Background music; do i need to explain?
Icon animation; animation when your highlighting the game
Boot/Warning image; You don't really need this, but if you do i don't need to explain it.

You can either make them all yourself, or if you can't be bothered you would have to google for some imgs!

Once your done with all that, it should look something like this

obviously it won't be Wild Arms, but if it is cool ;D

Now that you are done, click back onto the Convert Menu and click... Convert obviously

once your EBOOT has finished, you will get a folder with letters and numbers
you need to drag that to your GAME folder Not your ISO folder.

If you have popsloader, your done! If you don't follow below

popsloader makes your games work! But its not an emulator.
You need to download it for your current firmware
Popsloader for M33
Popsloader for GEN

(This bit is for GEN, M33 has a nice .exe to use)
Once you downloaded it, go into SEPLUGINS folder, and copy both file and folder into your seplugins folder on your PSP.
Now, if you don't have a POPS.txt in your seplugins folder on your PSP. Open notepad and copy this into notepad
ms0:/seplugins/popsloader.prx 1

When you have click save, and name it POPS and save it in your seplugins folder.
Exit USB Mode and restart your PSP. (You don't need to enable it from the recovery menu, because it's already enabled!)
Then start your game, and a menu will come up. DONT PRESS ANYTHING! CLICK HERE to find out what pops version you need to use!

And that's it! Your done!

I could have sworn I posted a guide earlier this year on this O.o however this guide is much more detailed than what I remember doing and alot cleaner too. just a thought you might want to add a lil sentence about the compression, if I remember correctly not all games like to be compressed and will lag quite alot (final fantasy springs to mind) anything with heavy graphics like intense cutscenes and combat tend to lag a fair bit during those moments, other than that this guide is really really good kudos to you dean =D
EDIT:
also I forgot to mention some games require a different Game ID for it to work without crashing (digimon anyone? ¬¬).
Other multi disc games can be a pain in the ass to get to work when your at the swap disc point XD but I think that part would be best in another guide.

(sorry I'm a really really picky person)

How do I convert .mp3 into .AT3?
What does "Apply patches" in the 1st picture do?

converting .MP3 to .AT3 is abit difficult.
You would have to search google for that one.
Apply patches isnt necessary

.MP3 to .AT3 is quite difficult, I never bothered with it, Apply Patches is for is if your converting a PAL to NTSC game or similar things, not really nessecarry for anything.

MP3 to .at3 isn't that hard since it's a codec used by Sony and plenty of apps can convert...try something like Goldwave and ensure you have the at3 codec on hand.

Hrmmm, I'm having issues converting Digimon World 3 to my PSP. On the compatibility list it says to change the Game ID to SLPS-01724, which I did. However, when I try to actually launch the game it doesn't even give me the screen to choose what POPS I want to use, it just sits at a black screen. I can hit the Home Button and quit the game and such but the game never starts. When I change the ID should I change both the Game ID and the Main Game ID or just the Game ID?

EDIT: Cool, I changed the Game ID and it works so far, the only way to test it now is to have it load my memory Card.
