Moving .vpk files to Vita

Postby S3phy Wed Aug 31, 2016 10:20 am

Alright, this is a very basic guide and anyone is welcome to create a more throughout guide with pictures.

So, you've downloaded a .vpk game, and now you have to move it to your PSVita.
There are 2 ways to do this, over Wi-Fi and over USB Cable.
The advantage of Wi-Fi is the fact that you don't need cables attached to your vita, and it is quite simple.
However, using USB is considerably faster
Wi-Fi method:
Requirements for moving files over Wi-Fi are
1. FTP client like Filezilla(https://filezilla-project.org/)
2. PC and Vita are in the same LAN (basically just in the same network)
3. Henkaku is installed and loaded

Now that those are in check, it's time to start the transfer.

1. Make sure Wi-Fi is enabled on Vita, and start Molecule.
2. Press SELECT and insert the FTP connection details to your FTP client. In case of Filezilla, insert the IP to host field and set port to 1337.
3. Now connect and open ux0:. I usually move the .vpk files to ux0:/VitaShell, but the location is up to you.
4. When the transfer completes, you can install the .vpk from Molecule.

USB cable method:
The requirements this time are
1. QCMA set up and knowledge to use it. I won't cover the usage in this tutorial, but you can find the installation guide at http://vitapiracy.com/viewtopic.php?f=4&p=117
2. PSP save for transferring the files
3. USB cable for Vita. Who would have known?

We will assume QCMA has been configured, and you know where the folders are located.
1. Rename the game .vpk you downloaded to all caps, and make sure the name is as short as possible.. This means if you downloaded persona4golden.vpk, you must rename it to PERSONA.VPK.

You may need to enable the option to show file extensions in Windows to rename the file extension as well. This can be done following the guide at http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/how-to/softw ... s-3341794/, or you can google another guide yourself.

2. Now move the PERSONA.VPK to the PSP save folder.
3. Right click QCMA icon and select refresh database
4. Now open up your Vita and go to content manager and move files from PC to Vita.
5. Move the PSP save vita. The save should be around 1-3gb in size now.
6. After the transfer is complete, you can find the .VPK at ux0:/pspemu/PSP/SAVEGAME/name of the save.


That's it for now. Anyone who feels like making a better guide is more than welcome

Nice tutorial :D Also i think you could add another way to do.
I didnt test yet but you can tranfer the vpks as mp4.
1-Change a vpk file as mp4
2-Put in video folder
3-Tranfer with QCMA
4-And after, changing the extesion again to vpk with vitashell (uxo:/video/xx/name.mp4)

It works I use it to transfer vpks but for large games it stucks at the end and you have to wait 3-4 mins according to game size

I tried changing the vpk to mp4 and putting it in the video folder but still my console didn't see it, is there any other way one can copy vpk files with the usb directly?

you need to change the format to .MP4 and put in the corresponding PC folder that your cma recognize the content manager of your vita . And then after passing pro vita , open vitashell and go in ux0 : video / .La there should be a folder with numbers, and in the .MP4 that vc renamed . pass to .vpk again and install .

Many people use File commander to make it. In fact, i just heard from my colleagues. And, if you ask the question about the video format, i would recommend you the avi to mov converter to help you solve the problem of incompatibility.
