From Redump Wiki
This guide is for dumping PlayStation Portable games, alternately if your disc has a movie partition as well follow this guide instead.
- Sony PSP with the latest CFW installed.
- Memory Stick with at least 2 GB of free space.
First Time Setup / Tools
- PSP Filer v6.6
- Start dump and upon finish move image from root folder ms0:/ISO to computer
- SFOInfo + batch file (Batch file link dead - it's optional anyway) to extract info
- Hashcalc (or another program that can calculate CRC32/MD5/SHA1 of a file)
- Note: Please do not use USBSSS — it makes bad dumps!
Installing PSP Filer onto your PSP
- Extract the PSP Filer ZIP file
- Open the 'release\GAME' folder, select the 'Filer' folder and 'copy' it
- Connect the PSP to the computer using a USB Cable
- Open your memory stick, then open the 'PSP\Game' folder and select paste

Dumping a UMD using PSP Filer

- Make a note of the filename the UMD will be dumped to. (Example: ULES-00135.iso)
- Press the 'Start' button to start dumping.
- Wait while the UMD dumps to your Memory stick. This can take a while, it depends on the size of the game.
