    Hello everybody,

    To sum up: I have a PSP2000 6.60 PRO-C , and I wanna download some games to play.

    I've downloaded a few titels, but It just doesn't seem to work as it does with my DS. (Download, unpack, put in folder, go)

    If I wanna unpack files winrar keeps going crazy, I can't complete the unpack process.

    Some info on the right PSP files would be welcome (ICO etc.), and how to properly unpack them and use them in my PSP-GAME folder.

    Thanks in advance,

    YP

    somewhere
    If they are rar when downloaded, you have to unpack them. There should be an ISO inside the rar.
    You should have an ISO folder on your men stick.
    Put the ISO in the ISO folder and you're good to go.
    To take away some possible confusion, go into your settings in winrar and make sure ISO isn't checked under file association.
    If it IS checked, uncheck it as winrar will view it as something it can open.
    You don't want it doing that.
    Also, you could have a cso. That goes in the ISO folder also.
    It's just a compressed ISO so it takes up less men stick space.
    If you get psx games, emulators homebrew, those go in the GAME folder.
    Good luck.

    From Where???
    it sounds like old files, uploaded years ago (which is often the case with psp games) that have now become corrupted. its no wonder the usenet communities embraced par2 files.
