So i recently bought this psp 2001, the version is 5.00m33-3 and the color is metallic blue. I can run certain games like monster hunter freedom unite and naruto ultimate ninja heroes 3, however , when...

well you are running a custom firmware and its probably having update issues if the custom side of the psp is outweighing the potential to run umd discs efficiently then just update the m33 out of the unit or download a firmware emulator for it i had to on my virgin firmware unit but even these get put out and never updated to run newer firmwares so its a shot in the dark for you but try it so google psp hacks and homebrews and there islots of sites with goodies you can use that custom firmware for even used for loading your iso games rite off the memory card instead of discs ok look around and you will be surprised what a custom psp can do:)

Where can i find the latest version for my play station portable

listen do you know custome firmware??? if you dont then what that means is that you will stay at a certain firmware BUT special firmware that lets you play games from your memory card!!! instead of using your umd and ORiginal firmware cant play the games from the memory card HOW to know if your psp is custome firmware well go to system settings and check on system information if it says 5.00M33-4 its custome any that has M or GEN is custome if it does not say anything your psp is original..NOTE you cannot have custome firmware on a psp 3000 or 3001 it will only work on 1000's 1001's 2000's 2001's how to check that?? look ont he bottom of your psp it says a serial number than it should say psp1001 or 2001 but if it says 3000 or 3001 it WILL NOT WORK anyways you can connect to the internet by your psp and update from the network ORRR download the latest firmware from your computer lets say 6.20 download put it in a folder called UPDATE with all capitals and put it in game you will now have the updated version on your memory stick. and you can boot it from there go to dthe playstation .com and they probably have it there.RATTEEE!!

Starwars the force unleashed won't load. sent first umd back to store second one won't work either. my psp reads all my other UMD games fine


Thank you for using Fixya!

Do you get an error message? Is your Firmware updated to the latest whether it's custom or the official one?

Some game require higher version of firmware. Check your game's firmware requirement and see if that is the cause of the problem.

Psp will hung up when playing Gta vice city stories

Are you playing the GTA Vice City Story from the Memory Stick or from the UMD.

If you are playing the GTA from the memory stick, I assume you have a customized firmware (CFW). Try to upgrade your firmware to higher version.

If you are playing the GTA from the UMD, update your PSP firmware.

My psp cool graphic games like Valhala Knights wont work but the low graphic games works!help

its because all cool games with great graphics are almost released this year so they a restriction (hands down for sony)this year after a disscussion sony came up with a idea to shock the whole portable gaming world that the new games(cool graphic games)would want a firmware update (no less than 5.00)to run so they made all the games patched them to run only if the gamer has a firmware more than 5.50 so what you should do is simple just upgrade to 6.00 or if you are using custom firmware then upgrade to 5.50 gen d2 (after these process be sure to reboot and go to recovery mode and do recovery) 5.50 gen d2 is a big concept when you click some firmware which is lower than 5.50 it will say you have a upper firmware which is 9.90 (which means it has the power of fw 9.90 even though 9.90 is not released) and if this doesnot work take your umd out and refresh psp and put it back in if your using custom firmware press select and change driver m33 driver if it does not work then change it into sony n9660 (although you need a umd for that to work and the umd should be inside the psp when playing the game

Hi,I updated my psp to 4.05 and know it doesn't play games from my mem.stick

Is that custom firmware 4.05? This will only work if you have a custom firmware m33. What you may need to do is take your battery out and put it back in while holding the Right trigger it will bring up a menu (if you do it right) called the M33 Recovery Menu, go down to "Configuration" go into it and go to "UMD Mode" and press "x" until it says (currently M33 Driver - No UMD), Then quit out and start and play like normal if this doesn't work e-mail me at :

Help me!

unless you have custom M33 firmware to access the umd thru usb, or have low or custom firmware to use a umd dumper, you cant copy it.
