If you’re a proud owner of a Sony PSP, you may be wondering how to get some games onto your device. Luckily, it’s a relatively straightforward process. In this tutorial, we’ll walk you through how to put games on your PSP memory card.

Step 1: Check Your PSP

Before you start, make sure your PSP is compatible with the games you want to download. Typically, PSPs can play games that are in the .iso or .cso format.

Step 2: Download Games

Next, you’ll need to download the game files onto your computer. There are plenty of websites that allow you to download PSP games for free. However, be careful and ensure that the site is reputable and safe before downloading anything.

Step 3: Extract Files

Once you’ve downloaded the game files, extract them using an extraction software like WinRAR or 7-Zip. This will create a folder containing the game file in either .

Step 4: Connect Your PSP

Connect your PSP to your computer via USB cable and select “USB Connection” on your device’s menu screen. This will allow your computer to recognize your device as an external drive.

Step 5: Create Folder

On your PSP’s memory card, create a new folder called “ISO”. This is where you’ll store all of your game files.

Step 6: Transfer Files

Drag and drop the extracted game file from its original location on your computer into the ISO folder on your PSP’s memory card.

Step 7: Disconnect Your PSP

Once the transfer is complete, disconnect your PSP from your computer by selecting “USB Connection” again and then pressing “O” on your device’s menu screen.

You should now be able to find your newly transferred game on your PSP’s menu screen under the “Game” section. Simply select the game and press “X” to start playing.


Putting games on your PSP memory card is a simple process that only requires a few steps. Just be sure to download games from reputable sources, extract them onto your computer, transfer them to your PSP’s memory card, and enjoy!

If you’re having trouble finding games in .cso format, consider ripping them from physical copies of games you already own. This is legal as long as you’re not distributing or selling the files.


It’s important to note that downloading and playing pirated games is illegal and can result in serious consequences. Only download games from reputable sources and make sure you own a legitimate copy of the game before downloading it onto your device.
