How To Back Up Your Sony PSP UMD Disks

This should work on 1.50 firmwares, and all custom firmwares.

I Tested this on 3.10 OE-A2 and didn't enconter any problems

1.) Download "USB Special System Storage":
USBSSS_100.rar  [40.2 Kb]

2.) Extract it using "WinRAR"

3.) Open the folder you extracted from "WinRAR". (USBSSS_100)

4.) Go into folder "MS_ROOT"

5.) Copy the folder "PSP" to the ROOT of your PSP MEMORY STICK. (eg. X) - (X as in the drive letter of your PSP) - (Click on overwrite, it will only add extra files and folders)
6.) Exit from "USB Connection" on your PSP but keep your USB Cable in

7.) Then on your PSP goto "GAME" -> "Memory Stick" -> and start "USB Special System Storage"
If USB Special Storage system will not start "(8002014C)" try creating a folder named "GAME150" inside the PSP folder on your memory stick and copy USBSS inside it then try USBSS again.
8.) Now insert the "UMD" that you want to back-up

9.) Select the first option; "Virtual FAT16 . UMD ISO-9000".

10.) Now go to "My Computer" and open up the PSP drive. Where you should see your game. in ISO format
11.) Now copy your game to anywhere you want on your Computer. - (Eg. "Desktop")

12.) The back-up process should now start ( the back-up will be finished when the percentage on the PSP has reached 0% again )

If the back-up gets to 100% and doesnt go back to 0 after 5 or 10 minutes procede to step 13. This has happened to me on several occasions but has still produced the full ISO image

13.) Press "X" to disconnect.

14.) Choose "Exit to XMB"

15.) Rename the copied ISO file pn your PC to anything you want and your all done
