Hi trick3183, please see the below info from
http://www.krizka.net/2007/08/27/error-80020321-when-lauching-an-psp-iso-game/

Many PSP users that have a homebrew enabled firmware, like the M33 edition, like to dump the contents of their games from the UMD to the memory card. This will save the file as an ISO, allowing them to backup the games or play them without having to carry any UMD disks around. I do the same thing, but suddenly it stopped working today. I tried to launch “Mind Quiz” to take daily test, but I was greeted with the following error: “The game could not be started. (80020321)”.
After a lot of tinkering, I found my problem. To play any ISO games, you need to have an UMD game disk in your PSP. It does not matter what game it is of. In my case, I was running a little experiment with a UMD video disk that came in my PSP starter pack. After I finished, I forgot to take it out of the PSP. Well, at least I learned that it has to be an UMD game disk, and not a UMD video disk.
If the above solution does not work for you, you might also try to upgrading to the latest M33 firmware. I found that with Dungeon Maker: Hunting Grounds, I had to have version firmware version 3.40 or greater. If this is the case, you might want to check out my M33 upgrading tutorial.
Another way is to use the No-UMD mode that is configurable in the recovery menu, but it is not compatible with all games. To get into this menu, you have to fully shut off your PSP, and turn it on again while holding the R button. When you load the recovery menu, navigate into the Configuration section and select the “UMD Mode” option. Press the X button until you see “currently: M33 driver -NO UMD-”. Navigate back into the opening menu, and exit. This will restart your PSP , and you are ready to roll.

What version did you update to? most likely the lens is just dirty a little alcohol and qtip and the lens can be cleaned but be sure to be careful. You can also buy a cleaning disc as well. If you need further assistance let me know, also please take a moment to accept and rate my solution accordingly.
Thanks,
Lee

The cartilage reader had broke on my Nintendo 64 console. What can I do about this problem then.


Well the same thing had happened with me not too long ago. You could buy a new N64 console then from Luke games and just games or DK oldies. Make sure you get the 4.5 mm game bit tool to open the console up and you can change the cartilage reader from the new one to the old one like I did. Or you could get your old N64 console fixed somewhere then or find someone to fix it. Just buy a new one like I did.

I'm losing my connection...


It sounds like you've refused an Xbox Live Update at some point.
You can go into your system options and see if there's an update available.
To check for an update on the Xbox 360 you basically force a new Xbox Live connection:
  1. Press the Guide button (center logo button), bringing up the pop-up menu
  2. Go to Settings
  3. Select System Settings
  4. Select Network Settings
  5. Select Wired Network or the name of your wireless network if you're on wifi
  6. Select Test Xbox Live Connection
  7. Select Yes if prompted to update. If you're not prompted and the test completes successfully, you have the most recent update.
If that doesn't work try this link http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/927749-xbox-360/67807343

Lost my disk for fifa manager 10


Ever try the site: http://www.warez-bb.org ? Make an account (nothing personal). When you register, from the home page, go to Games, then scroll down to the search bar and search "Fifa manager 10". There are a bunch of links for it. I've been using the site for a while, it's pretty clean overall in my opinion.
