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.
is your PSP modified/CFW? if not it wont play cso or iso games. When u formatted your memory stick it will create ISO folder in the root of the memory stick. you said you created the folder, sounds to me that your not using CFW. this wont work.
If your using CFW/modified then format your memory stick using format option of your psp. Copy the cso/iso files to the ISO folder and that should work.
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.
hi your previous psp version is 3.80 m33 if yes your using custom firmware that why you can play game to your memory stick the problem is you upgrade your psp firmware to sony official firmware 5.01 you reinstall your firwmware again using custom firmware like 5.00 m33-3 cfw below with m33 or OE
If so, your PSP probably runs on an Official Firmware of Sony...to check if it is an official firmware, just go to your XMB>SYSTEM>SYSTEM INFORMATION, then check your System Software...if your System software has the M33-2 suffix, it is a Custom firmware and it should be able to run games on your Memcard...then if it DOESN'T HAVE a M33 Suffix, therefore, I'm sorry to say that iit is an OFFICIAL Sony Firmware and IT CANNOT run games on your memory card...the only way to fix that is you should have it modded/downgraded and then upgraded to a custom Firmware...
