Make sure you are not having the original PSP firmware on your PSP.... When the PSP comes on Try press select and choose M33 Driver....I hope this solves your problem...

Good Luck

My psp games not working!! any game i download, does not work, shows (80020148)

I had this problem as well with my PSP.
I found that it was because the USB cable which I used to transfer the game onto the stick was broken so it did not transfer correctly.
I changed the USB cable and transfering games to my PSP works fine now.

The problem is hardly ever the PSP's or the memory card's fault.
It's mostly the cable which ever gets problems.

If that doesn't work, you might just have to re-format your memory stick and scan for viruses.

    Cant transfer files

    You might have virus protection installed on your PC, and it'll block your memory stick of psp when your MS infected by virus/trojan.. You may access your ms using card-reader or consider to re-format your MS within PSP to refresh partition..

    There are no games

    1.)try to backup first the data in your memory card to your pc,
    2.)after copying ,format your memorycard.
    3.)then copy the backup files back to the memorycard{copy it folders by folders}

    if still doesnt work the memorycard must be infected by a virus. to troubleshoot:
    1.)try to rename the GAME folder to game1{if you cant rename it,rightclick the folder then click properties then uncheck the readonly attributes then click apply then OK.}
    2.)after renaming the folder,then create a new folder and name it as GAME
    3.)then copypaste the game to the newly created folder.

    note: 'GAME' folder indicates the folder where all previously game are located.if the previous name of that folder is '3.71GAME' then the newly created folder must be 3.71GAME

    this solution do bypassing the unreadable folder done by a virus,i did it before & it solve my psp problem
