    The ones on the PS Store? I've tried the US ones which work on the PS3, but I can't get it to work on the PSP with custom firmware.

    Works fine on a stock PSP. The only limitation is to transfer from PS3 to PSP you must be logged into the US account at the time to authenticate it.

    Must be the firmware then. It made me update from 3.10 OE to 3.40 (OE-A) before it would copy it, but now I get "The game could not be started. (CA000006)". Don't suppose I can really go to Sony for support on this!

    Yes, they do look pretty rubbish but then it's only 79mb in size. Still fun to play though!

    PS1 games might not look that great nowadays but I would love to play Silent Hill and Dino Crisis on my PS3.
