How To Screen Capture Your PSP

Many PSP gamers wants to capture screenshots of their PSP games to share them with their friends and on tutorials. Even the above picture is a screenshot of my PSP. I used screen capture for almost every PSP tutorial (two posts yet) on this blog.

Taking screenshots of your PSP screen is not a hard task, but finding and installing a perfect plugin is pretty hard for new users. Don't worry, I'm here to solve this problem.


  • PSP USB Cable (To transfer files)
  • Laptop/Computer (To download & transfer files)

Installing ScreenVideo Capture Module:

Download ScreenVideo Capture Module from this link. It's .zip file, so extract it to a new folder of your computer. We just need following two files from this archive - capture.prx and capture.ini.

Connect your PSP to your computer via USB cable. Copy and paste capture.prx and capture.ini in the seplugins folder on the root of your PSP's Memory Stick. If your PSP doesn't have any seplugins folder then just create one on the root of your Memory Stick.

Now add following code to your GAME.txt, VSH.txt and POPS.txt files in seplugins folder. You can also create these three files in a simple notepad document if they're not already in your PSP.

ms0:/seplugins/capture.prx 1

Now switch off your PSP. Now turn on your PSP with the R button held to go into configuration mode. Go to plugins and activate all "capture.prx" plugins. That's it.

How To Take Screenshots:

To take screenshots press note button (the music note) to take a screenshot (saved in BMP format). Don't forget to run FastRecovery file before taking screenshots. Hold R and then note to start taking a video (your game will lag a lot in while capturing videos) and press note again to stop taking the video. This will be saved in GIF format.

Additional Settings:

You can also change the location on the PSP where screenshots will be saved by editing the capture.ini file.

The default is ms0:/PSP/PHOTO

How To Play ISO Games On PSP Without Custom Firmware

Earlier this week, I wrote about installing CFW on your PSP to do some extra-ordinary PSP stuff. Playing ISO and CSO games in one of it. However, you can also play ISO/CSO games on your PSP without doing any modification in PSP.

Any Limits? - Yea, you can only play PSP games under 720MBs without hacking it. There are lot of games under 720 MBs, such as Call of Duty, God of War, Hero of Sparta, NFS Most Wanted, Burnout Legend and more.


  • PSP (Any model)
  • PSP USB Cable
  • Laptop/Computer (For transferring and converting files)
  • iso2eboot convertor (For converting ISO/CSO files to EBOOT - Download Here)

How To Play ISO/CSO Games On PSP Without CFW:

Everyone wants to play games on their PSP, but some of those are not always able to afford their favorite PSP UMD. UMDs are very costly for teenagers like us. Some guys like me just install CFW to play those pirated ISO/CSO games on their PSP, but some of them just afraid to install CFW, possibly because of the risk of bricking their PSP.

This way is very easy & there is no chances of bricking your PSP with this trick. So let's just start this tutorial.

So for playing ISO/CSO games on your PlayStation Portable you need to convert your ISO/CSO files to EBOOT.PBP files. That's so easy, we just need a convertor to do that.

Converting ISO/CSO Files TO EBOOT:

For ISO/CSO files, you need to download iso2eboot convertor from this link. Extract all files to a new folder. Converting to EBOOT is a bit complicated for new users, but don't worry, I'm here to help you with this picture tutorial.

  • First put your ISO/CSO file to iso2eboot convertor folder:

  • Now open the convertor icon and click on convert isos to eboot button:

It takes a bit time to convertor ISO to EBOOT. Sometimes more than you could ever expect, so don't worry about the loading.

After loading/converting, you'll see two new folders in your iso2eboot folder - PSP and ISO folder. The converter has stored your ISO file into ISO folder, and your EBOOT.PBP file on PSP folder.

  • Open iso2eboot's PSP folder and copy your game's folder (complete folder, not just EBOOT.PBP file) to your PSP's game folder.

That's it! Now you can easily play your favorite game without paying for it (Not Cool). So if you got enough money in your pocket, then paying for a game is a better idea. And if you don't have, then you can proudly use this trick.

Installing Pro CFW On Sony PSP 1000/2000/3000/GO

BWidgets is a blogsite about blogging, but why we're sharing PSP tutorials here? The answer is very simple. I recently bought a PSP 1000 model so I wanted to share some cool PSP tricks & tutorials with you all.

Before we start this tutorial, here are some simple FAQ about this tutorial:


Q. Can we play ISO/CSO games on PSP with this hack?

Q. Can we play ISO/CSO games on PSP without installing CFW?
A. Yes, but only games under 720MBs. Tutorials is available here.

Q. Do we need Pandora Battery to install Pro CFW?
A. NO! NO! NO!

Q. Any damage or chances of bricking my PSP?
A. Not much. Installing CFW is way too much easy these days, so don't worry about that.

Supported PSP Models:

  • PSP 1000 Series
  • PSP 2000 Series
  • PSP 3000 Series
  • PSP GO


  • A charged PSP 1000/2000/3000/GO with official Sony Firmware 6.6 (which, at the time of this writing, is the latest firmware released by Sony)
  • PSP USB Cable (To transfer files)
  • Laptop/Computer (To download & transfer files)
  • Pro CFW (Direct Download Link - Repository Link)

Update Your PSP To Firmware 6.60:

Skip this step if you already have Firmware 6.60 installed on your PSP.

In order to install Pro CFW on your PSP, you will need to first update your PSP to the 6.60 Official Sony Firmware. As of writing, 6.60 is the latest firmware released by Sony. If you have older version installed on your PSP. Then there are versions of Pro CFW that will run on older firmwares as well.

To install the latest 6.60 firmware, just visit Sony PlayStation's official website, or on your PSP (Settings > System Update > Update via Internet)

Installing Pro CFW:

This step is very easy, and usually takes less than five minutes. Don't worry, you can easily do this.

Download Pro CFW 6.60 from this link. The archive contains subfolders in the "PSP/GAME" folder. There are several files in the GAME folder, but we just need two for this hack: the FastRecovery and the PROUPDATE folders. Copy those two folders to your Memory Stick's game folder "PSP/GAME".

After adding the FastRecovery and the PROUPDATE folders to your PSP's memory stick, you'll see a few new applications in your PSP's game menu. The one you will want to run in order to install Pro CFW is "Pro Update". This scary screen will appear (but with different options as my PSP is already hacked):

Press X key in your PSP to install Pro CFW. After clicking on X button, screen will load several files, then it will ask you to press X key again in order to launch Pro CFW. That's it!

You can erase the "ProUpdate" folder from your PSP, but keep the "FastRecovery" folder.

Using CFW In Daily Use:

In order to use CFW in your daily use, you'll need to run FastRecovery file every time you reboot your PSP. It takes less than 10 seconds and doesn't requires any actions. That's IT! Welcome to the world of Pro PSP Users!

What's Next?

Thanks for reading this tutorial. I'll write more PSP articles soon on BWidgets. So if you're new to this blog, then don't forget to subscribe to our Feed with your favorite Feed reader or Email Updates. Don't forget to leave your comments, suggestions, or problems.
