ok lets see if anyone here can help my dilemma.

I wanted to get "Beats" for the PSP, so I made account, downloaded PC playstation Store. Bought game, now when it comes to download it.... I need to plug in my psp to the USB and hit "retry" it doesn't work. I check and they say you need a psp on firmware 3.7 or higher. Now Im running 3.40oe-a so I know where my problem is but Im not gonna update past 3.40oe cause everything (mods, irshell, themes etc etc) just work. So Im in the middle of a work around and thats where someone here may be able to help.

Upon looking @ the file (.xpd file) that starts the download process I am welcomed to the real location of the PSP game...

Desc=Beats™ Full Game

C=http://location of the file.pkg

So right now im in the middle of directly downloading the .pkg file which is the game itself, my dilemma is finding out if there is a way to execute that file when I get it. From the info I gathered so far a .pkg file is like the old .pbp file format (used to execute old demos...homebrew, etc). So im not sure the next step I should take when this file is done because im not sure if .pkg is a file that can run under 3.7+ firmware. So is there a way to get a 3.40oe-a PSP to run a .pkg file.

Any info would be great, thx.

I very much doubt it. The only way will be to update to 3.71 M33. iRShell and themes and most homebrew work under that anyway.

So, you've got a choice. Upgrade, or lose your money.

I updated to 3.71 m33-3 and I still get the error message in both Windows XP and Windows Vista. Its still telling me to plug in the usb and click retry. Is there anything else I can try?

Srry cant help, tho sony may have made a patch so the games bought from PS store might not play on CFW
