Probably gonna have to get a tech to reflash the memory chip back to normal. Sounds as id the power may have died in the middle of an update, or maybe the disc was scratched, or any one of dozens of reasons.Sony will probably have you send it in.

How 2 upgrade


It depends what firmware you are trying to upgrade to. If you want to install custom firmware on your PSP, check this YouTube channel:
http://www.youtube.com/user/ubeenstryked
If you want to install official firmware, you can find a list of downloads here: http://downloads.exophase.com/category/psp-official-firmware/
When you select the firmware you want to install, download it. You will get a .zip file with a file inside called EBOOT.PBP. Follow these steps to update:
1.) Connect your PSP to your PC. 2.) Open the PSP folder and then the GAME folder. 3.) Right click INSIDE the GAME folder, and click New Folder 4.) Name the new folder UPDATE 5.) Place the EBOOT.PBP file you downloaded into the UPDATE folder. 6.) Disconnect your PSP from your computer, and select the MEMORY STICK ICON in the GAME section. 7.) Find the PSP Update Version.. and run it, complete the on screen steps to install the new firmware.

How to upgrade my psp into a new version?


Greetings,

You have the option of upgrading your psp firmware when:
  1. You purchase a game that requires a new firmware
  2. You manually upgrade the firmware
To manually upgrade the firmware, go to the settings section on the psp. Once there, look the selection that says something like "Firmware upgrade" and press it. If there is a new firmware, it will automatically install it (*Note* You must have a wireless connection in order to upgrade *Note*) If you need further assistance, please reply to this post and I will help you the best I can. Thank you for using FixYa! =)

Well i have the samething happening to me with the psp's


Game sharring works on two PSPs, like if you are playing Grand Theft Auto on one psp and ratchet on another psp, however, you can't play two games at the same time with two PSPs on you.

But if you want to see how it works, you got to make sure that you are in a wireless area with a wireless access point and select the transmit function from an in-game menu then select "Game Sharing" from the other psp menu, once they recognise each other, a short download begins and the second player can then choose to play.

The use of RAM to store the games rather than on the Memory Stick Duo means that players cannot continue with the games after the PSP has been shut down or sent back to the "Home" menu - from which players usually access media functions and launch software from UMD."

New game wont start


This is terrible to say, and I feel bad for you. This sounds as though your PSP is Bricked. Tell all your friends if they are asked to upgrade by a game, plug up your PSP to the power cord and keep it charged during the upgrade needed to run the new games. If your power fails during the upgrade, you will BRICK your PSP. Contact Sony, its their fault. www.playstation.com
