Introduction: How to Archive a .iso (PSP Game)
This instructable will hopefully teach you how to create a .iso to play on your PSP. This tutorial only applies to people who are running custom firmware on your psp.
This is to only be done to backup a game you already OWN not one that you have DOWNLOADED.
For this tutorial I will be using a copy of 'Star Wars Battlefront 2' that I own. This also work on any other PSP game.
Step 1: What You Will Need
-A PSP running custom firmware
-A UMD of any PSP game
-Active ISO File Manager 2 (link will be provided [software is FREE])
Step 2: Obtain the Files Needed
To do this simply rip your UMD. From the UMD you should get a file labeled PSP_GAME and a .Bin file labeled UMD_DATA. Put both the folder and the .BIN file into a folder with the same name as the game you are archiving.
Step 3: Input the Files to Active ISO File Manager 2
Active ISO File Manager 2 can be found for free at
Click the button with the image of the folder at the bottom right of the window and locate the folder. After this select 'ISO 9660'. Finally press 'Create ISO'
This process will take a few minutes.
Step 4: Your Done!
Now that you have created your .iso you can play. Just put the file into your .iso folder of you PSP and play it.
If you would like to save space but still play you can convert you .iso into a .cso
