Well, if you have the internet on it you can search for new firmware on the home screen, but the newest version is 4.05, or you customize it yourself.

Where i will going to download free games for PSP?


If you have a psp running custom firmware then go to pspisoz.com. Place the iso's in "X:/ISO" folder, X being your psp on your computer. If you don't have a psp on custom firmware you will need to to play "free games on the psp". Also if you don't know what psp you have then remove the battery and look there it will say. Once you figured that out go to pspslimhacks.com for all your psp cfw (custom firmware) needs.

I have psp v 6.31 it not work any game type iso or cso please give me solve


You need Custom Firmware to be able to play cso's or iso's. You can easialy put custom firmware on a PSP-2000 or PSP-1000 but not a PSP-3000. Look up on youtube for how to hack it. Include your psp model and firmware version in the youtube search. (ex. Psp 2000 6.31 hack)

Psp games disappear when updated to 6.10


did you have cfw (custom firm ware) on your psp that allowed you to play downloaded games from other sites other than psn. if so what you did was to overwrite the cfw and installed the ofw (official firm ware). sony releases ofw to cut down on piracy. so if this is your case you may want to look on youtube on "psp cfw" there are alot of videos on it and it should get you up and running again. if you ever get cfw installed on your psp again DO NOT UPGRADE WITH SONY OFFICIAL FIRM WARE OR YOU'LL HAVE TO REDO THE CFW

How can i install vlc in the psp


Programs like PMP VLC are not officially supported by Sony on the PSP. To install them on your PSP, there is a very involved process of installing a custom firmware on your device, and this is not recommended, as Sony will not support this software and it is considered to break your end of the user agreement that you made when you first started using your PSP.

This aside, it is certainly possible, and there are a lot of resources out there on the internet to help you figure out how to do this. Keep in mind, though, that the process of putting custom firmware is not only frowned upon by Sony, but also may ruin your PSP by "bricking" it, or causing it so it no longer functions at all.

My son was tryin to upload a downloaded game on to his psp and i think he deleted all the firm ware it came up with a read screen sayin an error ocured and now it wont turn on at all please help he is...


Get the latest firmware from the sony site and a pandora battery to unbrick the psp.

Use the pandora battery to load the service mode, this is like a normal bettery **** enhanced, use it to load the new firmware.

If this doesn't work, get a new main board for your psp.

Succes.

How can i downgrade a psp 3000, 5.51 to 4.01? I need to modify it so i can play games in my psp! help!!!


pandora and magik stick cannot be used with psp 3k models.. you have to wait until a working exploit is found.. and dont EVER upgrade your psp if you want to do something with it.. google is you friend. take a look at mohh exploit.. still in the verry beginning.. but very promising.

I bought a new psp n cant play games on it by memory stick


Hi,
Yes '4.21' is the PSP's preloaded firmware. You are wanting Custom Firmware (CFW), so you can avoid paying for the expensive games, I guess.
This is an extremely fraught process involving hacking the PSP's battery, downloading files like POPSLoader and CXMB which are, in turn, difficult to find, and perilously difficult to install without bricking your PSP, then you need to use 'Recovery' and 'CWCheat', and this is just the process of readying the PSP for use..
Then you have to be able to get games, and get them onto your machine. This is another process with many careful steps..

I suggest you go and find a PSP-modding forum and look at walkthroughs of the entire process before you even begin thinking about tackling this yourself. And if you still think it's possible for a PSP newbie to attempt this, then get reliable help from the forums or someone you know personally, who knows what they are doing.

Otherwise you'll end up with a brick!

I won't expand any further, my friend, because while Fixya! is wonderful platform for sharing tips and guidance, it is not a platform for the legally dubious community of software modders, or a place where you'll ever be advised to take questionable risks with your products.

So go check out the PSP-modding forums and check youtube for how-to-guides, if you wish, but, seeing as you asked me, I advise you to get someone experienced with this process to do it for you, or to just leave it alone.

Good Luck :)

How can i download games for my new psp-3004?


Nice try, but this does not apply to his or this psp. aka the 3000 series (lite). As of now there is no hack for the lite psp. The solution that chris is posting is for the phat or og psp that first came out. The 1000 series. You cannot go back to 1.50 on a slim psp. Because there was none made with 1.50fw. If you try to downgrade your psp you will brick (kill) your psp. The only way you can d/l games is through sony's psn store and there all psx (PS1 games). And you have to pay. Any more question pls feel free to ask.
