If you’re a PSP gamer, you must know how important it is to have enough space on your memory card to save all your favorite games. In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to save games to your PSP memory card easily.

Step 1: Make Sure You Have Enough Space

Before starting the process of saving games, make sure that you have enough space on your PSP memory card. If not, you will need to delete some of the old games or files that are no longer needed.

Step 2: Connect Your PSP to Your Computer

Connect your PSP to your computer using a USB cable. Once connected, turn on the PSP and select “USB Connection” from the menu.

Step 3: Create A Folder for Saved Games

Create a new folder in the root directory of your memory card called “PSP” (without quotes). Then create another folder within it called “SAVEDATA” (again without quotes).


Remember that all letters must be capitalized and there should be no spaces between them.

Step 4: Find Compatible Game Files

Download or copy compatible game files on your computer. You can find these files in various formats such as ISO, CSO or EBOOT. It’s important that the game file format is compatible with your PSP console.

Step 5: Transfer Game Files to Memory Card

Copy the game file(s) from your computer and paste them into the SAVEDATA folder on your memory card.

  • Note:
  • The name of each game’s file should be in capital letters and end with “.iso”, “.cso” or “.pbp”.
  • If there are multiple parts for a single game, then make sure all parts are copied into the same folder.

Step 6: Disconnect Your PSP from Your Computer

Once you have finished transferring the game files, safely eject your PSP from your computer and unplug the USB cable.

Step 7: Accessing Your Saved Games on PSP

Turn on your PSP console and navigate to “GAME” on the main menu. You should see all the saved games listed here. Select the game you want to play and enjoy gaming!


Remember that not all games are compatible with all PSP models. So, make sure to check compatibility before downloading or copying game files.


Saving games to your PSP memory card is a simple process if done correctly. By following this tutorial, you can easily save games onto your memory card and enjoy gaming on-the-go without any hassles!
