I have a pink PSP-2000 import from Japan and I read a little Japanese. (????????????Anyway, I downloaded some American comics and tried to open them in the Japanese comic reader, but it says that the American comics are unrecognized data.
I too cannot figure out how to install the American comic reader on the Japanese PSP. Heartbroken
