This guide will show you how to rip UMDs using your PSP.
By following the steps in this guide you agree that you will NOT sell/give your ISO's or CSO's away. This is considered Piracy and is illegal and against the rules of this site.
Things you will need:
A PSP with CFW installed.
A USB cable that connects to the PSP.
A UMD OF YOUR OWN
A Memory Stick in your PSP at all times.
Before you continue, I must add that you will need a memory stick BEFORE you can rip your UMD to the PC. If you do not have a memory stick, first of all why would you want to rip the UMD, and second of all...It won't work (Thanks to vladthegiant for notifying me of this)
Go to the XMB and press select to bring up the VSH menu. When you do this you will get this screen:
Go to USB Device and press right/left until you get to UMD Disk.
Make sure your UMD is in the UMD drive and exit the VSH menu. Now go to USB connection and wait for your PC to detect your PSP
If you did everything right when you open up the root of your PSP you will see ONLY the ISO in the folder. No worries your Memory stick still has all of it's files. Your PSP isn't reading from the Memory Stick it's reading from the UMD drive.
You will want to now copy your ISO to your desktop Remember, do not give away your ISO or sell it. This is against the law!
When that is done close out of your PSP's window. Press O on your PSP and you will be back on your XMB screen. Press select again and go to the VSH menu. Go back down to USB Device and select Memory Stick again. Now your PSP will read from the Memory Stick again! Congrats you have successfully ripped a UMD from your PSP. If you would like to compress your ISO (Takes up less room) Scroll down to Step 5. If you do not wish to compress you are ready to insert your ISO into your Memory stick's ISO folder
Step 5 (Optional) Compressing your ISO
Firstly you will need an ISO compressor program which you can get here
Frosthax says you can use this program to compress your ISOs too! Here is a link for another compressor, credit goes to Frosthax Download ISO Compressor
(Please don't ask me for help using the compressor Frost provided, I have never used it.)
Download the program and execute the exe and follow the setup until it's done. Open up the ISO Compressor. Click Open at the bottom. It will ask for the ISO file that you wish to convert. Find the ISO and go to it and choose it. Now press start and it will take a little while. After it is finished go to where you had your ISO and you now have a file with a .CSO extension. This is your compressed ISO. Now plug your PSP into your PC and go to the ISO folder. Put the CSO in that folder and voila! You are done. Go to your memory stick under games and you should have your game displayed right there. You now have a compressed ISO that you may used for your gaming pleasure.
Note: Not all games will work in CSO form. Some games must be in ISO.
