PSX2PSP - Convert PSX Disc Images to EBOOT for PSP (Adrenaline)

The built-in PSP emulator for PS Vita can play PSX games flawlessly (via Adrenaline), however they must be in the PSP file format to work. PSX backups are usually found as disc images such as .iso or .bin + .cue files.  PSX2PSP is a Windows application that will allow you to convert your PSX backup disc images to the PSP EBOOT.PBP file format. Once converted, they can easily be transferred to your memory card and launched from the Adrenaline ePSP XMB. This guide will show you how to convert your PSX games to PSP format using PSX2PSP.
