My son's brand new PSP 3000 won't load the games when we insert them into the console. The console is working and shows all the options but not "UMD" when the disc is inserted. Much appreciation for any answers you can provide!

I would recommend contacting Sony (there should be a number for you to call located in the PSP's system manual). More than likely, they will need to open up the PSP if it's not detecting any games at all, or else you will have to replace the whole system.
..bring it back to 'Gamestop' & tell them truthfully that the PSP you bought doesn't play UMDs.
.. maybe there're problem's with the UMDs? Are they pre-owned?
If the PSP is brand new when you bought it, you can claim for FREE repairs, or perhaps a replacement from SONY! Mostly warrantys are just 1yr period, so you better 'do what you have to do' before Christmas!
When you insert a UMD into the PSP, then what happens? What appears on the screen?
- Do you hear the UMD drive spinning for quite awhile, but not loading up under the Game column?
Slide the open latch on the top of the PSP? system. The disc cover opens.
the UMD? with the disc label facing the system rear. Slide the UMD?
down the metal guides and press down until fully inserted. You should
hear a slight click, indicating that the UMD? is held in place.
