    You know how everything in the psp game folder is all mixed up and you have to take time to cycle through all the psp iso's, the ps1 games, the emulators and the cfw updates to find what you want. Is there anyway to make this easier? Like a way to rearrange what shows up first in the psp game folder?

    Or don't and use PSP Content Manager 1.8 because it's a better method.

    You can also reorder all of the things in your game folder with PSPFiler.

    Content Manager is better because it's a PC app. You can populate your stick and order it before it's even got to your PSP.

    pspHBSortTool [http://www.psp-hacks.com/2010/07/20/psphbs...-your-homebrew/] is very good too. Never tried Content Manager, but HBSortTool is very simple and straight forward to use. Does one thing and does it well (allowing you to reorder your games exactly how you want)

    And Rydian: While that is one way of sorting, that's not really what the OP asked for (a way to change what shows up first). Also, for users who aren't using CFW (I know not relevant in this case), HBSortTool will work for them too.

    Wow....that looks near identical to Content Manager, almost as if someone just nicked the source and reskinned it!

    I personally use the PsP Game Categories plugin. Good stuff.

    I quickly tried Content Manager, and yeah they're fairly similar, Content Manager just has way more features (video, music, images, RSS, bookmarks), whereas HBSortTool ONLY does games. So I'd advise Content Manager over HBSortTool actually.

    It sorts your stick into folders in more than three different ways?

    If that's important to you it can be done, but more so it's that you fill your MS from your PC so why not have it organised the way you want before you even put the stick in the PSP (whether it's CFW or OFW).

    For actually reordering things in the list I just use homebrew sorter (works with games as well), what he's referring to is the ability to group things in folders.

    He didn't say anything about grouping stuff, just mentioned he has loads of different types of stuff. [​IMG] Perhaps didn't occur to him there may be a way to group stuff. Wish Sony would add that to OFW, I have very little need of CFW, and couldn't be bothered having to use workarounds to access PSN and play new games, but I would like to be able to properly group content. And have it in groups automatically, rather than having to press square every time you go into the Game menu.

    He mentioned multiple types of content and having them all mixed up, so putting them in folders will properly segregate them... but yeah, I'll add rearranging to the FAQ, can't believe I forgot to do that originally since I'm anal about it as well.

    Also OFW added sorting in 6.3x I believe, but it's limited.

    Very limited. It can sort by platform (PSP, Minis, PSX, NeoGeo) or expiry date (been there a while), neither of which is what I would like, and both require you to press square at least once EVERY time you go into the GAME menu in the XMB. But I'd like to have custom categories (so I could add ones for demos and stuff) and have them show up by default when you go into GAME. Meh. Doubt Sony will ever bother, it seems to take them a couple of years to push out a crappy pointless new feature these days (along with a "security fix")

    Seems to take them a year to push out something CFW already has. XD
