Memory stick duo cover has slipped off track and won't go back in

Hello
I bought a PSP for my son at christmas.  Within a couple of days the the cover that slides out that says "memory stick duo" on it won't go back in.  The two plastic sliders that seam to fit over something inside, one of them has slipped off.  It's not broken in any way it just is off the track.  I have tried to put it back on without success.  I don not want to take any screws out as I am worried about voiding any warranty I might have. 
The unit won't play any games with the door open, not to mention it would be very uncomfortable to hold onto with it out.
What do you suggest?

Memory stick duo won't read!


You probably need a new memory stick module inside the PSP. I have seen this many times in my store and we replaced the board and it worked fine. Contact your local game stores to see if they do console repairs. See if there is a Play-N-Trade within your area. I work at one and we do repairs. I'm not sure if Gamestop or Gamecrazy do repairs.

Yes there is a way. What you will need is a PC, Some form of Memory stick Duo card Reader, And a PSP Compatible Memory stick Duo/Pro Duo.

If you havent already used the memory stick inside the PSP it will not have the correct Formatted file System for use in the PSP. but you can create the file system using your computer.

heres how to do it ! :

1) plug your Memory stick Duo/Pro Duo into the card reader on your computer.
2) open my computer, locate the Memory stick usually found under the "devices with removable storage" area.
3) once inside the memory stick, create 2 seperate folders. One called "PSP" and the other one called "MP_ROOT".
4) Navigate into the "PSP" Folder and create 3 Folders, "MUSIC", "PICTURE" & "VIDEO"
5) Copy & Paste the Necessary files into each Subsequent Sub-Folder within the "PSP" Folder.

Note : The PSP Can only handle Certain File types for Pictures, Music, And Video. i would suggest Navigating to http://psp.about.com/od/hardwarefirmware/p/compformat.htm before you transfer your files to ensure that you are adding files which are Viewable/Readable by The PSP's software.

Hope this helps !?

I need to now how use my psp san disk and can get on websites


For you to surf the internet, your PSP has to have firmware 2.0 and above. to find out what firmware your PSP has:

1. Turn on the PSP.
2. Go to the "Settings" category (it's the one farthest to the left).
3. Scroll down to the "System Settings" icon and press x.
4. Scroll down to "System Information" and press x.
5. The screen will display the PSP's MAC Address, System Software Version, and Nickname. The
"System Software Version" is the firmware version.

If you have the 2.0 And above firmware heres how to get connected to the internet :

  1. Find a wireless access point. make sure you have the correct password as you will be asked to input it in order to connect to the WAP.
  2. Insert a Memory Stick. If you want to save any bookmarks while you're online, you'll need to have a Memory Stick to save them on. The same goes for any content you might want to download.
  3. Turn on the WLAN switch. You'll find this on the left side of the PSP, just above the Memory Stick slot.
  4. Set up the Network Settings. You'll find these under the "Settings" menu, right at the bottom of the list. Choose "Infrastructure Mode" and follow the instructions. Here's where you might need a password (see step 1).
  5. Open the Browser. Select "Network" from the home menu (it's the one farthest to the right). Scroll down and select "Internet Browser" (the icon has www on it). The PSP will connect and the browser will open (there will be a slight delay as this happens).
  6. Go to the Address Bar. If you don't see an address bar at the top of the browser, press the triangle button and it will appear. Navigate to the address bar using the up button on the d-pad. The address bar will light up.
  7. Surf away !
and in the case of you talking about San Disc. im guessing your asking how to insert and your Memory stick Duo? if so follow these steps :
  1. Open the slot cover for the Memory Stick Duo located on the left side of the PSP? system.
  2. With the printed side of the Memory Stick Duo facing out towards you, slide the Memory Stick Duo? into the slot in the direction of the arrow printed on the Memory Stick Duo.
  3. Press the Memory Stick Duo until fully inserted.
  4. Slide the slot cover back into its original position
Hope this helps !?

If you have important data on you memory stick, back them up on your computer. Then format the memory stick with your PSP. After that, put all your PSP data from the computer back onto your memory stick.

See if the PSP recognizes your memory stick. Hope that works! ^-^
