Drifting ananlog stick and umd disk reading problems

A drifting analog stick is usually the result of a loose screw on the PSP shell.
If you flip your PSP over so you are looking at the back of it, there will be two screws on the side where the analog stick is, try tightening both of those screws (specifically the bottom one) with a small screw driver. If the problem persists, you can try to replace the analog stick yourself if the warranty has expired. If your warranty is still valid, you can send your PSP to Sony and they will repair it for you.
The UMD drive on the other hand, may be the result of dirty laser, or failing drive. Depending on the age of the PSP, you may be out of luck. The only option, aside from replacing the drive (which is expensive, and well, not worth your trouble) is to jailbreak your PSP to be able to play games from the memory stick. While downloading games that you do not own is illegal, backing up the games you own is ok.
