My psp works really good but when i try to play games or movies it starts to slow down and flicker


1. Set “UMD Mode” to M33 driver NO UMD
The PSP firmware version was 3.71 M33 but is also tested with higher versions like 3.8 M33. These firmware versions should have the UMD mode to M33 NO UMD.

To set the following you need to go to the Configuration Page. To go there you need to:
i. Turn off your PSP
ii. Press and hold the R button. While doing that slide and hold the power button up. This would turn on your PSP. You should hold until the black screen appears saying “M33 Recovery Menu Configuration”
iii. If the PSP just turns on to the normal menu, just repeat the two steps above.

2. Set “Use VshMenu” to Disabled.
It is also in the configuration page. Use the steps above and you should be able to find it.
Now after these two steps, if you continue no further, your PS would run faster – but only for the menu screen. The menu would be fast and really responsive. However, try playing a game. You would notice that loading is still slow and the gameplay is still played in slow motion


3. Set the CPU speed to Default.
Now this is really important. The CPU may not really be used when playing music or in the menu screen but its very important when you play games.
There are two settings you need to adjust. Speed in XMB and Speed in UMD/ISO. For us normal users we just need to set these two to “Default”.
After this, your PSP should be running ok. However, I recommend that you do another step which would also help the performance of your PSP.

4. Free up memory from your Memory Stick.
You can do this using two methods. One, you could connect your PSP to your PC using a USB cable. Two, you could remove your memory stick and use a card reader. I prefer the second method but you may use any of the two.


Method Two: Remove your memory stick and use a card reader.
Freeing up memory is easy, if you know what files to remove. As my friend is not really using her PSP for music and videos, majority of her files are game files. What she does is that she just puts games that she really plays. I recommend doing the same for your PSP.
Game files are located at the folder named “ISO”. The game files have a .CSO file name extension. You don’t need to delete them. Just transfer them to your hard disk. That way, when you want to play them again, you just have to transfer them back to your memory stick.
But if you have music and video files that take up much space, I recommend that you look into those first. Normally you would like to have at least 500MB of free disk space. You’d need the space for your game saves.

My friends have done the steps above with ease and have solved their slow PSP problems. Most of them, if not all, had to do all four mentioned above. The first three usually solves the problem.

Games work really slow on psp merory stick


maybe your game format is CSO... CSO is a compressed file... which means a bigger time to load for the psp from the memory stick...use ISO.. but note that when using ISO the file is bigger than CSO and may be even bigger than its expected size

Very slow interface but no such problen when paying a game


This happens when you have a dirty psp game loaded, perhaps it needs cleaning? It can also happen if somehow the system files have become corrupted, if this is the case you must reinstall the PSP software or try updating it by connecting to the internet with your psp and going to the update function.

What should i do when my psp goes slowly?


Actually that always happens with the psp depending on the game you wanna play. I found out that some games take a whole lot of time to load up than other games. For example Mightnight Club 3 takes ages to load up but if you play soduku or Daxter for example it takes a whole lot less. So my sujestion is patience, patience, and more patience.

PSP Wont play games, and is going slow on other things! [HELP]


Hi,
you,ve damaged the UMD Drive, or Laser.
hence disk read errors.
you,ll have to obtain a replacement UMD Drive ( e-bay )
Or alternatively you could look into firmware flashing and pandoras Battery.
This way you can play games from a memory stick.
