Hello jacob..

there might be a problem with your UMD optical reader on your PSP. have u tried all the disks??? none of them work? Try updating to the latest firmware version. If everything fails, then i believe there is something wrong with your disk reader (hardware related). Have u tried playing any media from the duo flash cards??? if the problem is with the UMD reader, then u will have to give it to SONY for repairs. let me know...

My psp will not play Movies Games, or any installed Software


When you put the game in, there is a latch inside the back of the psp where you insert the game, at the bottom the psp, that when you put the game in, it tells the psp that a game has been inserted and to load the game. When you put the game in, look and see if you see a silver latch that the game should push. If you see it, make sure the game is pushing down on it when inserted. If it is not there, or it still does not work, you will need to get it serviced at a game store or at a shop.

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! :)

UMD games play on any unit, the movies are regional.

tiny scratches & finger prints can stop them playing look carefully at the disc.
