Memory disk not inserted cant play psp


Please click the link below to be taken to the official Playstation PSP / PSPGo memory stick center. It will show you where the memory card goes on their devices.
PSP / PSPGO Memory Stick Center

Once you find out where the memory stick is on your son's system, I would take it out and reinsert it several times. This has happened to me before and I had to remove/reinsert a few times for it to "find the right position". As a last resort, I would format the memory card and see if that helps. The steps to format on on that link as well. Worst case scenario is the memory stick has gone bad, but you can pick up a replacement for under $10.00 US. Hope this helps.

Hi My PSP's orange ligth won't turn off just always lightning when turn on my psp it's lightning with green light


Hi khangal74,
If you dont have issues playing your usual psp games, you dont have to worry about the orange light. That is normal. It means that your PSP is saving the data to your memory stick. Also make sure that your WLan switch is turned off ( that also causes a blinking orange light ). However, if you are experiencing a flickering orange light and your screen remains black ( and you cannot play any games), it means that your PSP is having issues reading you memory card.
Do these:
Remove the memory card and turn your PSP on without the memory card (it should turn on with no problems) Now, slowly re-insert your Memory stick. (You may need to do this several times until your PSP recognizes your memory card) If this still does not work, your Memory stick is busted or may be infected with a virus and therefore needs to be replaced.
Wishing you with positive results. All the best to you.

No source will read my memory stick pro duo mark 2


  1. Try re-formatting your memory stick from your PSP console. A memory stick that is formatted from a PC or other hand held console sometimes cause incompatibility problem with the PSP.
  2. If your PSP still can not read the memory stick, try checking your memory stick by using your friends PSP and see if they can access the memory stick.
  3. If the memory stick can be accessed by your friends PSP then there is a problem with the memory slot of your PSP.
  4. The only way to check the contacts of the memory slot of your PSP is to disassemble you PSP and take out the mother board.

Psp 1000 will not read memory stick


First thing to check: Try another memory stick. It may be something as simple as a bad memory stick.

If you tried another memory stick and it works (and/or you tried your memory stick on another PSP and it works), you probably need a new memory card reader for the PSP. You can find it at the following website. Be sure to match up the model number of the memory card reader so that you get the right one. The website installs parts like this for $20 also:

Memory stick duo won't read!


You probably need a new memory stick module inside the PSP. I have seen this many times in my store and we replaced the board and it worked fine. Contact your local game stores to see if they do console repairs. See if there is a Play-N-Trade within your area. I work at one and we do repairs. I'm not sure if Gamestop or Gamecrazy do repairs.

Memory stick does not work


Use a Card reader to format your Memory stick and then put it back to your PSP and again format. Some times the PSP wont recognise memory stick and contents in it.

The problem can be the memory stick or within the PSP system itself. Try inserting another memory stick into the non functioning psp. If the problem still persist that means the memory card reader cannot read the files try formatting the whole psp system. If that doesn't work you will need to get it repaired take to an electronics store that sells video game systems preferably game stop they will swap out the memory card reader

Psp


* Make sure you have inserted a memory stick, and enable the usb connection via settings=>usb connection

* Check the usb cable, or simply find another one to try if it works.

* If there is a memory stick inside the psp and the psp can recognize it, then you most probably have a problem with your cable or usb port.

* if there is a memory stick inside the psp and the psp cannot recognize it, as well as the computer, then you are most likely to have a failure with your memory card.

There are too many possibilities, maybe you can give me details straightaway, so more people can help you.
