    Hello All,

    Just recently got a brand new PSP Slim, then upgraded the firmware to 3.71 M33-3.

    Just wanted to know what programs are best for converting...
    PSX -> PSP (EBOOT)
    PSP UMD -> PSP ISO
    PSP ISO -> PSP CSO

    I have done some research and know how to use most of these programs, I am just curious as to which work the best (most playable games produced), and which are the most noob friendly? Any links or points in the right direction are greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Also in terms of emulation of Ninty products, which emulators are the most compatible?

    PSP ISO Compressor (v1.4 is the newest i believe). That's what i use and i haven't had any problems.

    Thanks SynGamer, it is much appreciated.

    Do you know which is better for...
    PSX->PSP(EBOOT) I think I will give PSX2PSP converter a shot and see how it goes.
    PSP UMD->PSP ISO Someone said that I can use the existing Custom Firmware that is built in? Verify?

    Thanks again.

    You can use the custom firmware to mount the UMD as a drive on the PC which will open up with drive letter containing the ISO. Wow, this is a really cool feature.

    I use Winnydows' tools for compression and video conversions.

    Personally, i compress my ISO's to CSO files to reduce the size. m33-3 can read CSO...if that helps? [​IMG] I haven't tried PSX games on the PSP so i wouldn't know about that. I use [this] guide to rip my UMDs to ISO. Load times are improved and battery lie goes up, 2 very nice things [​IMG]

    Use YACC for compressing your PSP isos, it uses ciso and ciso plus, the two best compressors out there.

    Really isn't a difference between YACC and PSP ISO Compressor 1.4. Both come out to the same file sizes...

    Is there any downside to compressing them, or is any potential slowing that I imagine might happen negligible?

    Yeah, it totally doesn't depend on the memory card...
    OH WAIT IT DOES.
