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.

Saved data could not be read?


This just happened to me. I used a tissue and gently wiped out the slot- then blew out any dust/debris with my breath. Gave a gentle wipe to the pins on the game card as well with a tissue. Restarted a few times and now games are working fine.

Nintendo ds, can not erase data message


Where did you buy this game? Is it from a reliable source? There's been known fake DS games that don't work. And usually the case is the game shows a message "can not access saved data. please turn of power and re-insert game". This is actually my first time with a case where it can't erase the data. Try contacting the previous owner.

Nintendo DS Lite not reading some games


this is a problem with the pins inside could be dirty or dusty ether way you will need to get a cleaning fluid ie 100% alcohol cleaning fluid us a clean cotton bud inside the slot and use gently as not to damage pins, if the pins are heavy soiled you may need to get a fiberglass tipped pen wich is used to clean up poor contact areas on boards and other electrical circuits

hope this helps if unsure get in touch with nintendo they will prob fix it for you for free go here > http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/repair/

How do I access the memory card (pack)?


Greetings,
The way to access the data on an n64 memory card is to plug it in to the controller, hold down the start button on the controller and turn on the system. Then you should be able to delete the data from the menu that comes up. Hope I was not to late with the info.
