PSP UMD isos

Apparently the PSP uses ISO9660 format on their UMDs. There won’t be any burning to UMD discs any time soon since Sony has said they will not be releasing burners. But here’s to breaking hardware DRMs through reverse engineering and providing progression learning how things work.
For those very engenious individuals, there will probably soon be the beginnings of a PSP emulator. Joyous.

  • Is it publicly known what kind of protocol is used for communication between the UMD drive and the logic board? I’m guessing it’s proprietary, knowing Sony. That may be a possible angle of attack, though — convince the PSP it’s reading from UMD when it’s actually reading from, say, a laptop hard drive or other small optical drive.
    I may dive into PSP hacking once the newer firmwares get cracked. It seems like a fun little device to hack, given all it’s I/O capabilities.
