With memory sticks becoming bigger and bigger, the Sony PSP has become more and more like an external hard drive, allowing you to carry not only games, music and movies with you, but computer files as well. In the case of other gaming systems like the Nintendo GameCube, their games are actually small enough to fit on a single PSP memory stick. This means you can carry your GameCube games with you and play them on your Wii or GameCube emulator.

Download and install IMGBurn onto your computer. The download link is located in the resource section of this guide. Place your Nintendo GameCube game into your computer. Open IMGBurn by double-clicking the icon on your desktop.

Select "Create image file from disc." You will be greeted by the home menu of IMGBurn. Select the destination icon and choose a place on your computer to save the ISO file. Click the large green arrow to start the program. Wait as your GameCube game is backed up to your computer.

Turn on your PSP and connect it to your computer with the supplied USB cable. Your PSP will automatically go into USB mode and a window will pop up on your computer allowing you to see the contents of your memory stick.

Copy your backed up GameCube ISO and paste it into the PSP memory stick. Wait as the file transfers over. Once it is finished, press the "O" button on your PSP to eject and disconnect it from your computer. Connect it to your Wii or other game emulator to play off the PSP memory stick.


Video game emulators are legal.


Distributing GameCube ISO files is illegal.
