If you want to upgrade, you must downgrade first. Any custom firmware upgrade cannot take place unless your PSP is firmware 1.5 or lower.

Chances are that you have a different firmware. If you want to get a custom firmware and downgrade, it is a very complex process that I do NOT recommend if you do not know what you are doing. It is very easy to ruin your PSP during the process. If you are still interested, research "Pandora's Battery" and other downgraders. It is a very long process too long to be explained here, and there are many guides online.

If you miraculously have a PSP that is firmware 1.5, I recommend getting firmware 5.00 m33-4 instead, as it is much more stable. Don't attempt anything unless you understand the consequences of possibly ruining your PSP.

Sorry if I scared you...

My psp always says the game could not be started (dadadada) how do I fix this?


DADADADA is an error code that dax made so that you couldn't upgrade to official firmware from custom firmware. If you want to get rid of your custom firmware, you have to recover back to 1.50 and then upgrade from there.

Why I can't upgrade my psp1000 3.71 to 6.20?


The 3.71 firmware is a 3rd party custom firmware. 6.2 on the other hand is Sony's official firmware. Essentially it's like running Apple but wanting to upgrade to Windows 7, since you're running a different firmware, you won't be able to upgrade to the official 6.20.

I cant put games on my psp slim


if you have downloaded the firmware from the internet, that is really not advisable. it would be best to go the nearest gaming zone for updating firmware.

I upgrade my psp in version 5.01, now i cant play my games


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.

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...
