Try a different UMD, it might be scratched. If not, take a soft cloth, and clean the lens. Look on google to see where the lens are located.

Umd will not play


Sounds like the UMD drive died. If it makes sound like it is grinding it is having problems with reading the disk. One thing you can try is open the psp and look down in the slot. Take the drive head(the part that moves back and forth) and gently(and please be very gentle with it)push it down.

I had a Sony tech tell me to do this to mine and it worked. By the way, what model do you have and how old is it? what is the condition of the UMD you are playing?

thanks and hope I help. Post in the comments with any extra info and I will help further.

Buy a UMD disk cleaner this may help

failing that make sure system plays other discs or that the disc you are trying to play, plays in another PSP.

If it plays other discs fine its not the PSP its the disc.

If it doesn't then its the PSP that will need to be sent away for repair.

My psp doesnt read UMDs properly


I started to have this problem with the games that I play all the time. What I noticed is that the game starts to sink into the case. I got mine to play by first, pushing on the reading side of the disk. Later, I had to take the plastic front piece off that has the UMD label. You have to be careful because the actual UMD disk can come out after that. You also have to be careful because you don't want to crack the whit case that holds the UMD. I hope that this helps.
