  1. CSO is just a converted and compressed version of ISO, there is nothing removed, but some games can work slower when u playin on cso image, i.e. dissidia battles are loading much slower...

  2. There is nothing removed from an ISO file to make it a CSO file. It is just simply compressed.
    Benefit(s) of compressing an ISO to a CSO:
    1. It takes up smaller space in your memory stick thus allowing you to have more space in your memory stick for future uses.

    Disadvantage(s) of compressing an ISO to a CSO:
    1. It loads a bit slower than an ISO image file.
    2. Slower loading of the game.
    3. A bit of lower graphics than ISO. (I think)

  3. In simple:
    -CSO is just simple but bigger in size just copy and past in ISO folder in PSP it runs.
    -ISO is smaller in size(as it is compressed version) to run it download PowerISO ,install it and copy the ISO file in PSP ISO folder.

    ----Do not extract ISO as it appears as .rar file just instal PowerISO and copy ISO file to PSP ISO folder it will work fine.
