This guide is for dumping PlayStation Portable games, alternately if your disc has a movie partition as well follow this guide instead (usually just for multi-demos - or Stealth movie + WipEout Pure demo disc). Note: Some test discs need the PSP to be resigned to dump them UMDT-99813, see here.


Required Hardware

  • 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 to extract info
  • Hashcalc (or another program that can calculate CRC32/MD5/SHA1 of a file)
  • IsoBuster for PVD data (free version is fine)
  • Note: Please do not use USBSSS — it makes bad dumps!

Installing PSP Filer onto your PSP

  1. Extract the PSP Filer ZIP file
  2. Open the 'release\GAME' folder, select the 'Filer' folder and 'copy' it
  3. Connect the PSP to the computer using a USB Cable
  4. Open your memory stick, then open the 'PSP\Game' folder and select paste

Dumping a UMD using PSP Filer

  1. Enable your PSP to run homebrew / start your Custom Firmware.
  2. Insert the UMD you want to dump into your PSP.
  3. Select Game > Memory Stick > PSP Filer and start it.
  4. When PSP Filer starts, Press the Triangle button to open a menu.
  5. Press the 'Right Trigger' button to select 'UMD Ripping'.
  6. Make a note of the filename the UMD will be dumped to. (Example: ULES-00135.iso)
  7. Press the 'Start' button to start dumping.
  8. Wait while the UMD dumps to your Memory stick. This can take a while, it depends on the size of the game.
  9. When completed, Press the Cross button then exit 'PSP filer' using the Home button then Quit game.

Transferring the dumped ISO file to your computer

  1. Connect the PSP to your computer using a USB Cable

Retrieving PVD

  • Open IsoBuster app.
  • File > Open Image File.
  • In the left hand side of the app, right click on "Session 1" > Sector View.
  • In the box at the top input "16".
  • Scoll down and highlight lines 0320 - 0370 > click on the notepad-looking icon (when your mouse hovers over it, it says "Copy").
  • Paste this info into your submission, it's the "PVD" info. Here's an example of how it should look:
0320 : 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20  20 20 20 20 20 32 30 30                200

Collecting the necessary info and submitting the dump

Please review the important guidelines outlined in this forum thread regarding submission of both new discs and verifications: Redump Submissions

1. Extract SFOInfo from the ZIP file and place it in the folder as your Dumped ISO.

2. Mount the ISO image file with Daemon Tools or whatever you use normally to mount disc images on a virtual drive.

2. Get the virtual drive letter and use this command "sfoinfo s f:\ d:\PSP\myinfo.txt" where f:\ is the virtual drive and d:\PSP\myinfo.txt is the drive folder where you need to extract the data. Change the letters according to your computer configuration, and if you want you can prepare a small batch file so you don't need to open the command prompt every time.

3. Run Hashcalc, press the '...' button and browse for the ISO file that your dumped.

4. Tick the MD5, SHA-1 and CRC32 boxes then click 'calculate'

5. Open the text file that got created in step 2.

6. Copy the template data below and paste at the top of the text file.

7. Replace the data in <Angled Brackets> with the data from your dump and save when done.
