Cannot copy PS1 or PSP games to PSPgo from PS3 with 4.00 update.

Anyone else having this problem?

I went to try and copy Metal Gear Solid from my PS3 to my PSP, and the option isn't even there anymore.

Oh, but that new useless Health hazard crap is...

Really Sony?

I just got off the phone and they told me to call back in 3 hours about this problem...maybe there is a secret option hidden (sarcasm).

Honestly...I think this is the hint that they won't support the older systems anymore. If I had known this when I was reading about the update, I would've never updated it yet...unless Sony will give me a free Vita for having to go through this, I'm gonna keep losing my faith in Sony and their belief in keeping long time owners that've invested well in their past systems.

I just copied the Wipeout Pulse demo to my PSP-3000 just fine. But the full games don't copy over. There's an error:

This content is not available for use.

Sign in with the account that was used to purchase this content, and then select > to download the content again.

I'll try redownloading a game and seeing what happens.

You're right. The games have to be redownloaded if they were previously installed on the PS3 because the PS3 no longer installs the PSP data to the hard drive. They just show up as the bubble now, and choosing it leads straight to the copy to PSP prompt. I've copied Hammering Hero this way.

I have over 80 files in my Psp folder that are now useless and need to be re downloaded if I want to transfer them to my Psp. Over 40 psone games that I would need to re download and keep 2 copies of (one installed to the ps3 the other in the install bubble) if I want to use one on my Psp. Hmm my PS3 is now a "content management device"? Eric Lempel, Senior VP of Sony Network Entertainment.

Same issue here. There is no way I'm downloading all thsoe titles over again to copy them to a PSP. So preparation for the Vita killed the PSP connectivity.

And as usual they are silent over the issue.
