How to Convert PBP to CSO

Updated July 20, 2017

Files with the extension PBP, like a firmware update or a custom-made file, are used by the handheld Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) gaming system to launch software. CSO is a file extension for up to nine levels of compressed ISO disk image formats. CSO files are used to archive PSP games. In order to compress PBP files into a CSO, a program like Microsoft Windows PSP ISO Compressor must be used.
