f you are experiencing issues when using a Universal Media Disc (UMD™) on the PSP system, try these troubleshooting options:
Issues with PlayStation®Store contentClick here for help with content purchased from the PlayStation Store.
Restore Default Settings Restore Default settings will default the PSP system to its original settings. A setting change may be the reason the PSP system is having difficulties. Click here to learn how to restore default settings on the PSPgo / PSP system.
Confirm UMD is properly inserted
Make sure the UMD is properly inserted with the label facing the back of the PSP system. Try removing the UMD and reinserting it. Please note, it is normal for the PSP system to make noises while it is reading from a UMD.
For PSP-1001, slide the latch to open the UMD door. For the PSP-2001 and PSP-3001, simply lift the door open.
Try playing the UMD on a different PSP system If possible, try playing the UMD on a different PSP system. If the disc still does not function properly, it might need to be replaced. If the disc does function properly, the PSP system may need service, see PSP Service for details.
Try playing a different UMD on the PSP system If possible, try playing a different UMD on the PSP system. If another UMD plays, the original UMD may be the problem. If none of the UMD's play, the problem may be isolated to the PSP system.
Check for moisture Do not let the PSP system or any PSP® accessories come in contact with liquid. Also check for moisture condensation in the PSP system. If moisture condensation occurs, remove the disc from the PSP and do not use the PSP until the condensation has evaporated, which can take an hour or two. In general, if any part of the PSP gets wet, discontinue use until it is completely dry.
Check the regional code Check the regional code on the UMD™ Video. The only regional codes that the North American PSP® is tested to work properly with are "ALL" and "1. "

its because all cool games with great graphics are almost released this year so they a restriction (hands down for sony)this year after a disscussion sony came up with a idea to shock the whole portable gaming world that the new games(cool graphic games)would want a firmware update (no less than 5.00)to run so they made all the games patched them to run only if the gamer has a firmware more than 5.50 so what you should do is simple just upgrade to 6.00 or if you are using custom firmware then upgrade to 5.50 gen d2 (after these process be sure to reboot and go to recovery mode and do recovery) 5.50 gen d2 is a big concept when you click some firmware which is lower than 5.50 it will say you have a upper firmware which is 9.90 (which means it has the power of fw 9.90 even though 9.90 is not released)
and if this doesnot work take your umd out and refresh psp and put it back in
if your using custom firmware press select and change driver m33 driver if it does not work then change it into sony n9660 (although you need a umd for that to work and the umd should be inside the psp when playing the game
If you have custom firmware, make sure your "execute boot.bin" and "plain modules" are both disabled under your advanced configuration settings of the recovery menu. Also, make sure your ISO/CSO games are saved in the ISO Folder of your memory stick and that your UMD MODE is set to NO UMD REQUIRED. Your PBP Games should be saved in your PSP/GAME Folder.
