Psp turned off while playing game and I lost all saved data.
There was a power surge in my home at the time but I was playing on battery power and psp was not plugged into wall. It turned off and turned on again, but all saved data for game was lost. What happened and how can I retrieve the info.
Re: psp turned off while playing game and I lost all...
Hey there, may have received a "short" in your PSP. What I would reccomend firstly is this...Go ahead and take the battery out of your PSP and then reseat it. Unfortunately, if your PSP is turning on right now, but you have no saved data, the memory stick may have been wiped...unless of course you have other data and just not the data of the game your playing. Data is stored in the onboard memory of the PSP and unfortunately when the game recieves a shock like you've said it lets go of the memory, much like someone pushing you in the hallway and you lose your books. I hope this gave you ideas, and/or solved your problem.

1) You must first backup ur data on your memory stick to your PC. Mainly the saved games data. ( directory is PSP\SAVEDATA)
2) Format the memory stick using the PSP format tool in system settings...not your PC.
3) In System Setting UNCHECK or UNSELECT "UMD Cache" this must be off!!!!
4) Connect your psp via USB cable
5) Copy your game saves / data back to your psp remember >> PSP\SAVEDATA .
6) Do a hard reboot of your psp ie hold the power switch for 3 seconds and it will reboot.
7) Your UMD games should now work with no probs.
This is not my solution, just a solution found on a messge board from others having the same problem
Okay what you want to do is make sure that the memorystick you have is actually a real one and not a fake. Meaning if you bought it at ebay or someplace else for what seemed like an outrageously low price then it might be a fake. Now if you paid for it at a wal-mart kmart or someplace like that there could have been a problem while you were saving the game the last time you played. What causes the memory stick pro duo to mess up data is basically the same thing as a computer if there was an abrupt turn off or if you turned it off while you were saving any game save. There might have been a chance that sometimes when you take off the memory stick while you have the psp on you might loose some data, though it never happened to me it happened to my best friends and all of his save data though his dowloaded games were not corrupted. Hope this helps.
have you been downloading games,if you buy new games they should save fine,if not take them back and refund, if you downloaded games then the must have some corrupted data on them when downloading causing save issues. deleta data and try downloading from more trusted site like pspiso, or just google em
