I think the it is possible your UMD case is cracked and the clear part is pressing down on the disc inside. Check and pull the clear part of the case from the media disc.

    Reach inside the UMD door and manually move the laser to the right a couple of clicks. This may get it back on track

    Well, It looks like you need a new UMD drive. I have had to replace many of these, they do go bad. It is important to use Sony if you are under warranty. You can call them at 1800 354-7669. Otherwise, my shop, www.PlaystationClinic.com can replace these for very reasonable price with quick turn around. The PSP requires near complete disassembly when replacing the UMD drive.

Cannot start loud fast clicking noise


Clicking noise would indicate starter solenoid faulty! This would also be the case if battery low but since you have a new battery you can look at the starter solenoid!

When i put the umd into the drive it starts loading and then makes a clicking noise


Its nothing you should really worry about as long as the game works all the umd is doing is reading at a higher disk speed (i.e faster loading times) also happens with ps3 at certain times

Cannot load umd games


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.

My psp makes a loud whirring noise


Hmmm... well i think its because its thea game or something or that you need to clean the PSP because when you open the UMD drive dust could fly in there or the UMDs might have dust inside and attract more dust but your able to play games right?

My psp doesnt read UMDs properly


I started to have this problem with the games that I play all the time. What I noticed is that the game starts to sink into the case. I got mine to play by first, pushing on the reading side of the disk. Later, I had to take the plastic front piece off that has the UMD label. You have to be careful because the actual UMD disk can come out after that. You also have to be careful because you don't want to crack the whit case that holds the UMD. I hope that this helps.
