No - the save file should be made automatically, however some games will hang or say the memory stick is not big enough, then you need to have the game on a 1GB or 2GB stick - larger sticks cause this problem.

What software are you up to, the latest CFW is 5.00 M33-06

Once completed the firmware downgrade and upgrade - have you formatted your memory stick, otherwise it will not have the folder to put the save into

Hey there, DemonDSi! This seems to be that you are out of memory on your memory card, but that also seems unlikely as well. What backup are you trying to use? What model PSP do you have? What type of memory card do you have (make/ model) and what custom firmware are you on currently?

As Kittymat says, formatting the memory stick will create the folder for SAVEDATA, but if you'd ever formatted the memory stick before, that folder should already be where it needs to be. Alternatively, be warned, as formatting will delete all data on your memory stick so take precaution to backup necessary files first!

The second idea that come to mind about your problem is that you may have a fake memory card or a larger capacity (and slower) Sony brand memory card. Do you have another memory card you can test with or a friend who has a memory stick from say, Sandisk? Sometimes Sony cards have slower read/ write speeds, especially the higher capacity ones (4gb+) and that can lead to poor emulation for homebrew that need to load often like Nintendo 64, PS1, and PSP game backups.

If you're unable to be helped in this forum further, I encourage you to click the picture in my signature. You'll be taken to PSPBrew.com - where people are more specialized in this sort of thing.

If its the raw dump of xmen wolverine there is a bat fix for this - it comes with the iso on some sites - i suggest you get it again from somewhere else

If you're using an 8gb Sony card, you may experience issues with certain homebrew/ iso loading because they are generally slower than other brands. Like Kittymat says though, look online for the .bat fix for the game. If that doesn't fix it, then it might just be one game that you aren't able to play because of the memory card.

    Here's another video fog isn't being displayed properly on several games. Nintendo life also reported this. Water Temple in oot water reflection isn't emulated properly either the whole point of the gimmick of that room. Graphical glitches and poor emulation shouldn't be present at $30 bucks

    You can't save ghost data either in Mario Kart 64. Wasn't an issue on VC for Wii and Wii U.

    Even if they fix these issues I'm still not buying it. $30 for drip fed n64 games is fucking retarded. Their online service is still shit.

    game pass costs more but you also get a huge amount of games and they're not drip fed
