How to Convert .CTF to .PTF

by Cameron Easey

CTF and PTF files are used for themes on the Playstation Portable, or PSP. Converting from CTF file to PTF is done by using a conversion program on your computer. One program that is available for you to use for this purpose is CTF Tool GUI. This program runs using an executable file that is inside of a folder you will need to put to your system.


Download the CTF Tool file to your desktop. Double-click on the “128424_CFTtool_GUIv43.rar” file to display it contents.


Double-click the “CTFtool_GUI.exe” file to run the program. Click the “Convert” button to change the theme for your PSP.


Double-click the text box for “theme input.” Navigate to the location of the CTF file on your system to convert and click the “Open” button.


Double-click the text box for “theme output.” Navigate to any folder on your system to save the converted PTF file.


Connect your PSP to your computer with the USB connector cable. Select the drive letter for your PSP from the “Send to PSP” drop-down selection box that is on the right side of the window. Make sure there is a check in the box to the right.


Click the “Start” button to begin the conversion process. The converted output file will be saved to the output folder and to your PSP.
