This seems to be for the ps vita.

No sorry, but Sony have said they are aiming to make as many compatible as possible. Heres a list of all the initially compatible games. I found this FAQ which answers a few questions but I'm not sure if this is the definate answer you were looking for. It says (about half way down): Q: Is PS Vita compatible with other PlayStation platform games like PS3,...

Yes you can play PSP games online with the PS Vita so long as the servers are still up and running. Also, apparently if the original PSP game supported Ad Hoc mode, Ad Hoc mode will work on the PS Vita as well. https://support.us.playstation.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/3792

Copying your PSP save data Plug your PSP into your PC with a Mini USB cable (the kind that fits into the top of your PSP) and select the USB Connection option in the PSP System menu. The PSP should show up as a connected drive in your My Computer menu. It's probably called "Removable Disk" if you're on Windows. Open that drive and navigate to the PSP ...

Micro SD and Memory Stick Pro Duo are two completely different types of memory cards.

Yes you can, although extremely slowly, just imagine it as the same thing as your phone. Go to settings>system setting>USB charging-turn it on. However, keep in mind there is a certain model that does not has that function: PSP 1001 phat The others, like yours, should.

It is as simple as copying the files over from the memory stick/backup folder. The target directory for your saves inside the PPSSPP folder is PPSSPP\memstick\PSP\SAVEDATA. An example of a correctly placed PSP save would be PPSSPP\memstick\PSP\SAVEDATA\ULUS10036001.

While you cannot disable Internet connectivity as a whole, you can disable the Internet browser using parental controls. You'll need to go to Settings > Security Settings, set a parental controls password (0000 being the default), then enable Internet Browser Start Control. Source: Playstation Knowledge Center

Yes, all PSOne Classics from the PlayStation Network can be played on all the different versions of the PSP (PSP-1000, PSP-2000, PSP-3000, PSP GO and PSP-E1000). Just make sure you have downloaded the latest firmware on your system. From Wikipedia: PSOne Classics, launched in North America on December 4, 2006, are re-releases of original PlayStation ...

No, they're reset and you'll have to pass the two Counter Attack bills each time in the first Disgaea (both Hour and Afternoon of Darkness). The bills will become available for that character once they meet the prerequisites again (which I forget for now).

While the PSP screen size and general layout of the buttons stayed the same during the x000 iteration, there are noticeable differences between the models: PSP-1000 vs PSP-2000 Speaker holes moved from lower side to upper side Button placemenet changed Different UMD slot, UMD switch on 1000 Headphones port moved, different power connector IR port on 1000 ...

The "USB Charge" setting they refer to is a setting on the PSP itself. Go to Settings -> System Settings and there should be a USB Charge: On/Off toggle. Set that to On. Once that's enabled, there's two other conditions you need to meet to charge the PSP over a USB connection: It must be plugged into a USB port that provides enough power to charge from; ...

I made some tests and Bryan C. comment's url confirmed my theory, according to this: A virtual memory card is created automatically when you start PlayStation® format software and save your game. For each application, two virtual memory cards (for MEMORY CARD slots 1 and 2) are created with the same name as the title of the game. So my theory was that ...

There is no current gen, or previous gen consoles which will do this without modification of some sort. It's possible if you have the right model of PS3 you could install Linux on it, and do it via this, but other than that you won't have any luck I'm afraid :(

PSP use lithium ion batteries. If it starts to bulge DO NOT RECHARGE IT. Bring it to a proper disposal place for such batteries. Remember all the exploding laptops, phones and balancing-boards-that-some-people-think-hover? Yeah, lithium ion battery fire. You don't want that. If there's a noticeable bulge don't use it, store it carefully and bring it to a ...

Download the DLC from the PSN store on the PS3 and then install it to your PSP from the PS3 just like you would full games (eg, USB connect PSP to PS3 and pick install on the download icon from the PS3).

It doesn't matter whether or not you have separate memory cards. It's the PSN account on the PSP that matters. While you can install content from your PSN account on up to five PSPs, unlike with the PS3, any given PSP can only be tied to a single PSN account at any given time. You can download all the content from both accounts, but you have to switch ...

It appears you CAN install most* PSP games availible on the PSN onto your Vita if you have a PS3. Download the PSP games onto your PS3 and then connect your Vita. Using Content Manager you should be able to use Copy from PS3 to copy over most PSP games (not Minis, not PS1 games) onto your Vita, even if they're not available for direct download. Some PSP ...

X doesn't control the movements of the Pirates. You need to move around with your left stick to move. If for some reason It isn't working you need to reconfigure the settings so your movements line up with game controls.

The ISO cache does the same thing that the UMD cache in stock firmware does: saves frequently used blocks of the game disc in RAM to improve load times. The UMD cache only applies when playing from a physical disc, and the ISO cache only applies when playing from a disc image on the memory stick. The settings under it are for fine-tuning; Cache Size is the ...

When playing PS1 games on PSP, push the HOME button while the game is running. There should be a controls option where you can then customize the controls. Individual customization are saved for every single game. Sources: Playstation Forum PSU Forum

The current de facto standard custom firmware is PRO-C2, which supports the PSP-3000. There is no need to use the pandora battery, recovery mode, or other exploits, and it can be (and indeed should be) installed over the latest official firmware version. The official install instructions are on the PRO CFW wiki, but the short form is: update the PSP to the ...

Found it. To open the recovery menu on most LCFWs: Hold the R trigger while turning on your LCFW (useful for when you set your clock speed way too low) Run the launcher twice. Through the VSH Menu. There's usually an option that says start Recover (This one made me feel stupid >_>')

Here how I did it with my Final Fantasy Tactics (FFT) save files: I can't guarantee it'll work for you. Your PSP save games are accessible in the memory stick you used to save your files. Find a way to read the memory stick in a PC with a memory card reader (I don't know if you can backup your files from your PSP direclty to a computer...). The memory ...

One other thing to note. First, if you find the Content Manager icon in the system tray (by the Clock on the task bar), you can right-click on that and pick Settings. On the settings screen toward the bottom there is a hot-link that takes you directly to the folder where you should copy your save files. There are even directions on screen telling you how ...

The vita has a built-in psp emulator. The psp games you can play you have to buy from psn first. Some games offer dlc, but for some it doesn't work, or is not available on psn. It's all a bit sketchy. I you just want the dlc, I suggest investigating network issues to make your psp work first, if you are using WPA security, try switching to WPA2 because WPA ...

From my personal experience: swapping the batteries probably won't work, except you are extremely fast. The PSP's date is kept because of an internal battery (pretty much like in every PC - BIOS battery). It takes some time till this one is fully depleted. So: Once the power supply is cut (battery), the PSP does not hold enough charge, to keep the game ...

The two most likely issues are the connection between the memory card and the socket are dirty, or the memory card is failing. A dirty card will cause spotty failed reads, and can generally be recovered from. Some of what you're describing sounds like a bad card connection. In the first case pull out the card and with a soft eraser, wipe across the contacts ...
