Re: my UMD icon dont appear when i put a game on it

I think the lens might have died permanantely, or maybe just it's temporary. I've also had the same problem, and one time I turned it on, it started working again. Wait about a day and see if it still happens.

Psp doesnt read the umd

you may hack your PSP in order to run ISO's (UMD copies on your memory stick), if you dont know how, search on the internet, or contact me by email.

Psp always read from umd,making it hang

Hi! I incounter this problem as well even without UMD its still loading and even I disable auto-start UMD still same so I tried reflashing the software but still same problem so I discover the solution before you turn-on your PSP try to open your UMD cover you'll see it will load faster then close again the cover once you see the battery and clock icon... The problem that causing this is the switch inside the UMD possible its stock-up or spoiled already!

PSP saving game

First to have games on your psp you have to have a program on your psp called umd dumper. you can find it on google by typing umd dumper and clicking on the first choice that comes up and then dowloading it.( before you continue here you must make sure your psp is downgraded, atleast vesion 3.11 or lower thats what i have. go to the file where you saved your download, double click and extract all the files from it. now connect your psp to your computer. now go to your downloaded folder and find two folder called umd dumper %%%%, copy and paste those to files on your psp that is still connected to your computer on a file called psp. now diconnect your psp and go to your game section on your psp and click on memorystick you might find two folders, umd dumper and corrupter file or just umd dumper, dont pay attention to the corrupted file. put a game in your psp and click the umd dumper, it will automatically start extracting files from your umd and put it on your memory stick ( make sure you have enough space on your memory stick depending on the game) after its done now connect the psp back to the computer and this time you will notice a new file with a umd picture on your folder, drag the umd folder and drop it in a folder called ISO, if you dont have a folder called ISO look on the internet on how you can get on on your psp. now when you are done diconnect it and go to your games section and on your memory stick you will have the game you just extracted. click on it and enjoy your game onyour memory stick..( if this information is not accurate enough you can go to, and type umd dumper and watch some of the videos on there one of them might give you a better understanding)

UMD Icon Not Showing Up Under "Games" in menu

You've cleaned the disks but have you cleaned the laser? That'd be the next step before looking @ repair options.
