PSP Firmware 5.02 games no longer load

I have just upgraded my PSP to firmware version 5.02 and now no games load. These include UMD and downloaded game demos from the Playstation store. I am able to access the home menu system but as soon as I go to load any game it powers down.

You need to revert it back to the old firmware or use a custom firmware instead to make everything working back again on your PSP...

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.

I Upgrade my PSP 3004 to Firmware 6.38 i cant able to play crack games how to modify... please Help me also i cant able to download grade to 6.35 help me to custome firmware 6.38 to play all crack game...


Hi!
No, the 6.38 Firmware update patched all of the exploits and if you upgraded you will no longer be able to hack it or play "cracked" games. They also patched the ability to be able to revert to a former version (6.37 or lower). So, unfortunately, you're stuck. Sorry.

Psp will hung up when playing Gta vice city stories


Are you playing the GTA Vice City Story from the Memory Stick or from the UMD.

If you are playing the GTA from the memory stick, I assume you have a customized firmware (CFW). Try to upgrade your firmware to higher version.

If you are playing the GTA from the UMD, update your PSP firmware.

I upgraded my psp 2006 from 5.00 m33-6 to version 5.50. Now it does not detect the games saved in my memory stick. What should i do?


Are you trying to play the game from the memory stick? Or are you trying to play a game from the UMD and retrieve the saved game data from the memory stick?

5.00 m33 is a custom firmware that allows the PSP to play games stored on a memory stick. If you upgrade to 5.50, which is an original Sony firmware, that functionality will go away. If you have custom firmware, you should never upgrade it or the features like playing homebrew or loading games from a memory stick will go away.

i think that u first reboot and download the firmware version 6.00 all the games will play,this is what happened sony changed the firmware lock of games and made it lock on the 6.00 firmware version so if you want to play games you should upgrade to 6.00 or above and if you are custom firmware download 5.50 gen d2

I upgrade my psp in version 5.01, now i cant play my games


HELLO! There's no need to downgrade ur PSP. If u have upgraded ur PSP from the official site and a official firmware has been installed on to ur PSP, it won't execute games(ISO,CSO) from ur memory stick. It will only run games from the UMD. If u want to run ur games from a memory stick u have to install a CUSTOM FIRMWARE. Try www.psp-hacks.com these guys have many softwares on their site. Dont worry its not that hard to put a Custom firmware onto ur PSP.

Downgrade psp firmware 5.02


Someone will have to run the flash program to get you back to M33. Pandora battery and Magic stick with M33 flash on it. Most homebrew and programs will not run on any M33 version above 3.9. New UMD games from sony will have the latest firmware and the children will usually run the firmware upgrade to play the game. It will allow the new UMD to play, but the Sony Firmware will write over the Custom M33 firmware and you will not be able to run the games on your Memory stick.

Psp error # 80010087 The game can not be started


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! :)
