Sorry if this sounds like a stupid question, But for multi-disk games that require a disk swap, would you still have them in Different folders under X:/PSP/GAME ? or how would you work that? Just Curious.

Regards,
Derek

P.S. I love you people, these guides will save me SO much money from having to pay $50 for every freakin PS1 remake.

Also, I just did all the steps you had, I'm using 3.03 OE-A and the games have an error whenever I try to play one.

Multi disc games require the same disc ID so when converting take this into consideration.
For instance FFVII Eboots would need to have the same ID for each disc, just use the ID of the first disc for the others.

Oh wait, folders? Yeah, different folders.And the naming of the folders doesn't have to be the same, nor do you have to use the same pics, icons etc. Just the same ID.
X:pSP/GAME:FFVII DISC1
X:pSP/GAME:FFVII DISC2 etc.

It's most likely a popsloader bug. You could try updating to 3.71 M33 or try an older pops version by using the Universal Popsloader that is included with the 3.52 M33-4 update.

There's instructions on how to set up the universal popsloader here:

When, if ever, is the Universal Popsloader gonna be fixed for 371 m33? And CC plays fine in 371M33 just don't access the status screen...

my psp cfw is now 3.71 m33
the problem is still there i can't play after the komodo dragon part.
the universal popsloader look confusing so i didn't attempt it since it is talking about 3.40 while i was in 3.52 m33

Hi Krelian.
Sweet guide and +rep to you, I've got about 70 PSX games lying around and just started converting to .PBP, 6 out of 6 so far and still going. This PSP just keeps getting better and better.

it keeps saying copyright stuff how do i pass this
the copyright screen is part of the original of the original disc,do you mean that it freezes at the copyright screen?if so, then it may be that the original disc that you copied from is scratched.not much you can do about it if it is scratched although if you live in the UK, GAME does a disc repair service....not sure how effective it is though since i've never had reason to use it.

I just got firmwear 3.71 m33-2 up and running but I cannot get any ps1 games to play. I have followed the above method (although where I found it, it was not so neatly written) using psx2psp and popstation4 and neither will work. The games are created correctly (i believe) and I can see them in the game screen of my psp with icon I made for them but when I try to load them I get a generic loading screen then it says "the game could not be started (80010002)". I have looked everywhere and I have not been able to find any help. I was wondering if there is a setting in the recovery menu I need to change or if VSH menu, or if my memory card is somehow responsible (sony 8gb)??? also replying to the first post in this thread "(NOTE: If you are converting a multi-disc game make sure you use the same Save ID on each discs EBOOT.)" what exactly does this mean and how do you do it? I am interested because all of the games I want to play are multi disks. Thanks for reading my tale of woe.

I don't know how this will help you, but the same error code turned up when I was trying to upgrade my firmware, and it was because I was taking steps that weren't necessary (I was trying to downgrade when I didn't need to). Maybe you should see if the 3.71 kernel is running instead of the 1.5. To do this you hold down the R trigger while booting up the PSP and you go to configuration. Go down to game foler homebrew and hit X to change between 1.5, 3.52 (or something) and 3.71. Other than that I can't really help because I need help myself...

So what I need help with is similar. I got the EBOOT to work and it loads then shows copyright, then the PS1 screen, then goes black and I can't play. I tried reset but that didn't work. Maybe it's the game: Crash Team Racing. If you guys know whats up (even if it's just inside that 5% of non-working games) please let me know. Thank you!

EDIT: One thing that I forgot: Does Frogger work because I want to play that game SO badly! Also, this guide is REALLY easy to follow, so thanks a lot. If anybody wants to talk to me about unlocking the fullest potential of ISOBuster in conjuncture with another program (I'm not talking about a keygen or anything to illegally obtain ISOBuster Premium, just using the free version with another program) PM me and I'll walk you through it. I'm not so good with this PSP stuff, but music and movies are my field.

Thanks for your help but it was for not. I tried switching to 1.5 and even moved the created game folder and eboot to all three game folders (GAME, GAME 150 and GAME 371) and it didnt help.

if you dont mind sharing (Rethink_That) what firmwair are you sporting and what are your current settings in your recovery/MVS menus?

In addition to my earlier post... i dont know if this is extraneous information but when I put the EBOOT file I make with psx2psp (a single eboot.PBP file in a folder named after the game code) in my game folder and access through the psp game menu I get the icon that i made for the game, but I also get a corrupted data icon at the end of my list. hopefully this may help.

Are you using the latest PSX2PSP release? (version 1.2, linked in the first post) Also for the settings in your recovery menu the GAME folder kernel setting should be set to 3.71.

Yes, incompatible games usually display a black screen. Have you tried any other PSX games to see if they work?
