    Well i just booted up my old psone (i say old but its the newer slimmer one), anyway i was wondering if there was anyway to softmod the psone so that it can play US backups, if not does anyone know where to find pal isos? i really want to play the classics so any advice is appreciated.

    HACKED PSP FTW
    with a psp that has CFW you can play ps1 ANY where
    ISO are the SAME as ROMs DONT ask for them

    use a PC emulator , http://www.epsxe , is a good one

    there is no such thing as a PS1 soft mod. you have to use a mod chip. period. end of story.

    Search for something called a Breaker Pro. It is similar to Swap Magic on the PS2; it is a disc that you boot, and then swap to your backup and play. It requires the disc tray sensor to be fooled into thinking it is always closed, but the version I got had a spring for the original PS1 and a sticker thing that holds the trip switch on the slimmer PSone. It took me forever to find a site that would ship to America, but if you're in Europe it should be easier because there were a lot of sites that shipped exclusively over there (I'm guessing Europe since you were asking about PAL ISOs).

    Anyway, does the double-disk-swap trick not work on the PSone? It works on my chunky old PSX.

    NTSC backups work fine on my PAL PSX with the double-disk-swap thing. I obtained my 'backups' from popular torrent sites.

    i got a old Fat psx wtih a 4 wire mod chip that i added a switch to so i can turn it off when mod protected games boot so it can't detect the chip.before i got i swap trick worked fine but i scratched the living hell out of most my backups doing it, had to reburn games pretty often then.
