    Have you ever tried to extract a PSX CD-ROM and failed because of some errors or bad sectors on your CD-Rom?
    Read on and you will achieve success in playing your PSX game on your PSP!! :mrgreen:

    First go here and check if the game that you are trying to extract works on your PSP

    If you are able to play that game on your PSP download Alcohol 120% (Download it here)
    After installing Alcohol 120% place the CD-ROM containing the PSX game inside your Drive.
    Start up Alcohol. When the window loads click on 'Image Making Wizard'
    A new window should open.
    Now in 'CD/DVD Device:' Choose your drive
    Now in the bottom part there is a selection bar called 'Data type'. From the selection choose 'Play Station'

    This is how it should look like:


    Click 'Next'. A new window should now come up.
    In 'Image Location' Choose wherever you like your image (game) to be saved.
    In 'Image Name' name it whatever you like.
    In 'Image Format' choose 'CloneCD Image file (*.ccd)'

    This should look like this:


    Click 'Start' and it will start extracting.

    After the process finishes close Alcohol 120%. Go to the location where you saved your image...There should be 3 files:
    an .IMG file,
    a .CCD file,
    and a .SUB file

    Now get POPStationGUI (Get it here)

    Once downloaded, extract it and double click the POPStationGUI.exe
    A window should come up.
    Click on the ‘Browse…’ next to the ‘PSX Image file’ and choose the .img file u extracted from your CD-ROM before.
    Click on the ‘Browse…’ next to the ‘Output Folder’ and select a place where the game will be extracted (I recommend making a new folder and name it as the same name the game is).
    In the ‘Compression Level’ Choose any level you would like your game to be compressed (9 being the most compressed and 1 being the least)
    On the ‘Game Title’ Write Down the name of the game you are going to make (sometimes the name is automatically written there).

    Click on ‘Go…’
    It should now start making 2 files…One called EBOOT.PBP and one called KEYS.BIN

    After finishing extracting you should have those two files. Place those two files in a folder by their same name (I put my Crash Bandicoot 3 game in a folder called Crash 3)
    [REMEMBER: Do NOT Name Your File More Than 30 Characters! This Will Result To A Corrupted Data!]

    Now place the folder containing the eboot.pbp and keys.bin in here:

    ms0:PSP\GAME\[here]
    (ms0: being the root of your Memory Stick)
    eg: F:\PSP\GAME\Crash 3\

    Now go to your PSP and check in GAME…You should see the game. Choose it and it should work!

    Thank you for reading my tutorial!
    Any Questions, Write Them Here!

    Games that I have Successfully Extracted (And only worked in this way):
    Tomba! 2 - The Evil Swine Return
    Crash Bandicoot Warped (3)

    Nice! Though if you have a bad CD, there's no way to guarantee that it'll work. If the bad sectors happen to be in an unimportant area, then it'll work. Meh, I guess it's better than nothing.

    Good work :)
