Hi robbimic,

The first thing to check is the firmware of your PSP. You should make sure that your PSP has the latest firmware loaded. Because some games will not work or load up if the latest firmware is not installed or loaded up.
You usually get this error message 80010087 if the UMD drive has errors reading the UMD disc or otherwise the disc is not present or was ejected while in the middle of playing a game or loading a movie. I suggest that you try to testing to see if the problem happens with other UMD discs, if it doesn't then most likely the disc could be damaged or scratched.

Now if you are using a modded PSP then you will get this error if you load a game from the memory stick without having any UMD disc inserted in the drive. Or if the game that you are trying to load requires a higher firmware version installed into the PSP. You will be required to flash a higher modded firmware to fix this error if this is your case.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)

SOURCE: psp

if its M33 custom firmware, goto the Recovery menu. (power it off fully. turn it on, and hold the R button until it appears.)

goto Advanced > Advanced configuration > and enable Execute Boot.bin in UMB/ISO

save that setting, exit out, and now test your game.

i get that same error sometimes. changing that toggled setting fixes it for me. but this only works on M33 custom firmware unfortunately.

downloading and installing custom firmware is another whole post worth though.

How can i fix the problems with my PSP


Sounds like you need to update your firmware and is causing all the games you downloaded (on the old firmware) to not work properly. The alternative is to re-download all the games that seem to be affected. If this doesn't work, make sure you are getting your games from a legitimate source otherwise they wont play correctly regardless.

Error 80010087


Check the firmware of your PSP. Some games may not work if the latest firmware is not installed.

You usually get this message if the UMD has errors reading or the UMD is not present or was ejected in the middle of playing a game. You should try testing your PSP with other disks, if it doesn't have the same problem with other disks then your UMD is most likely scratched or damaged.

If you are using a modded PSP then you will get this error if you load a game from the memory stick without having a disk inserted in the drive. Or if the game that you are trying to load requires a higher firmware version. You will need to install a higher modded firmware to fix the error if that is your case.

Hope this helps.
