What to Prepare Before Recording PSP Screen
To be able to record your PSP gameplay, of course, you need a PC, a PSP (the 2000 or 3000 version), a remote JoyLite plug-in, and most importantly remote JoyLite Windows Program. Other than that, you will also need a specific USB cable to connect PSP to the monitor.

- Edit a single or all three text files. Then, write this code: ms0:/seplugins/remotejoy/RemoteJoyLite.prx 0. For the PSP GO users, you need to type ef0:/seplugins/remotejoy/RemoteJoyLite.prx 0
