Make sure the contacts in the PSP's mem stick slot are clean... no dust/dirt in there. Format the memory stick on your PC then put it in the PSP. If the PC can read it and the PSP can't, you'll need to send in your PSP for repairs.

New version of UPMSv3 - universal PSP Unbricker/Downgrader/Upgrader, also known as Pandora's Ultimate Magic Stick, Now work with DC ver4 (Dark_AleX’s), for installing CFw 3.80M33-5 and creating memory stick into a “Ultimate Magic Stick” for use with “Pandora’s battery” (jigkick). Works for both PSP, Slim and/or Fat, and 1 stick for all functions for Unbricker/Downgrader tools. Also available is the “UPMS_v3.pdf Guide” to help you get started and usage.

The Ultimate Pandora’s Magic Stick is the simple solution to easily accomplish any of the following:
  • Recover any bricked PSP (Fat or Slim) and install sony firmware or CFw M33.
  • Upgrade Fat-Slims PSP to CFw 3.80M33-5, with 1.50 kernel patch-Fat Only.
  • Upgrade Fat-Slims PSP to CFw 3.71 M33-2, with 1.50 kernel patch-2 -Fat Only.

  • Boot up PSP to XMB with UPMS inserted-Fat Only.
  • Boot up to a full FW 1.50 from Memory Stick-Fat Only.
  • Use PSP Filer and other tools (If it requires 1.50, can’t for Slims).

Memory stick pro duo reading problem


Usually that means there is a problem with the memory stick itself. Try replacing or buying a new memory stick

Memory stick pro duo reading problem


It sounds like it has burned up the memory. This happens a lot in the fake chinese knocks offs. You can't ever tell if you got a real one or not.

I think you need to buy a new stick my friend. Try to use it on several computers. you may be able to get some info off but I would get a new one even if you get it running again.

I cant play games in my psp memory stick after i updated to 5.2


Please check you update. If your update is low, you must upgrade it to 3.52 m33 then download a firmware 3.70 m33 or higher to get the m33 recovery.
As your PSP start press SELECT and you can see a menu then go to "UMD ISO MODE" from "normal" change it to "Sony NP9660" then exit.
Now enjoy playing ISO or CSO game. Happy playing.

Sony handy cam memory stick pro duo


If the mem. stick doesn't work in anything else then your memory stick may be physically damaged. Just open the card in any computer using a card reader and format it using the FAT file system.
