Breathe lightly on
your disk, take a non-abrasive wiping cloth, clean the UMD disk just
like cleaning a DVD/CD. You may also try the compressed air cans, which
is available in computer/electronic store. If there are any particles or
dust on the disk, try blowing these particles off. Consider using a
compressed air can to blow particles from the inside of the disk; you
can find these cans in any computer or electronics store. There is also
UMD disk-cleaning solution available, which would clean your disk as
clean as it can be.
Check also for scratches, if it has deep scratches, then that might be the cause.

Did you have a firmware upgrade? if you can detail your current firmware I might be able to help you. There are higher custom firmware (CFW) that has known issues with UMD reading. Don't worry, it's about your UMD, you can even try the same UMD to your friend's PSP and Im pretty it will run. It's your firmware that needs to be changed. However, you may need to downgrade first before upgrading to a new firmware again to solve your problem. Please get back here when you have the details...
its simple yet complicated. now if the person you want to play online with has the same umd both of u should turn on ur wlan and select multiplayer in game selection menu or if the person u want to play online with doesn't have the same umd but the umd you have has a gaame sharing option u guys should turn on ur wlan and the person with the umd should select gamesharing in the game selection menu then the other should go to gamesharing in the home screen menu.
hope this works for u
r u running a cfw? if so you are getting this error because there is a setting in the hidden recovery menu that is set to
require a UMD disc to be in the PSP when it attempts to load.
Turn off the PSP not just on standby but totally off by pushing up on the power button then hold the R button down while turning on the
system. You will be in the Recovery mode/Configuration menu. Choose
configuration, then go to the 5th option which is the UMD MODE, yours is probably set to "normal - UMD required press X once. This will
switch it to "NO UMD". Then go back up to BACK and press X and then "Exit". Once you
restart you should be able to load the ISOs, CSOs etc. without getting
the 80020321 error.
hope this helps
I have seen many PSP's stop reading UMD discs and for the most part they are repairable with the least amount of opening your PSP. First we will do some trouble shooting with what might be wrong with your PSP unit.
About 35% of the time I find that there is something stuck in the UMD gear. It is different every time, sometimes its a piece of dust, plastic, soda, and even hair. Another 25% is the Disc Spinning motor. This will not let The disc in the UMD spin. About 20% is the Laser motor, this might be hard to spot since it could be something in the gears. About 10% is the actual laser itself. It will not focus the laser to read the UMD disc. The Last 10% is the Motherboard. This is the worst outcome, since there is very little what we can do but replace the motherboard.
So first what we need to do is find out what is actually wrong with your PSP.
With your PSP in hand. Turn on your PSP and remove any UMD that might be in there now. If you open up the UMD door and look down inside you will see the Laser assembly.
If you look to the left there is a black tab that sticks up, this tells the PSP that there is a UMD in the drive.
If you press this down with a small probe, you should see the disc motor spin and the laser light up red *** CAUTION DO NOT STARE DIRECTLY AT THE LASER ***
If the Motoris not spinning. is it moving slightly? Maybe a little twitch? I would lean more towards the bad motor problem BUT would not say for sure, I would recommend that you take the parts out and see if there is another problem also. If the laser is not lighting up then it could be the laser, I would try and check the cables to the PSP and see if there is a bad connection. If both are running well then lets put a disc in and get your ear up close so you can hear what is going on in there. On a working PSP you will hear the disc start to spin up, then you can hear the laser start to twitch, followed by the laser motor moving the laser down the rails. Can you hear the disc spin up? If not I would take the disc out again and press the switch with your probe again. if the disc motor is spinning again, look around to see if the metal housing is obstructing the disc when you put it in.. there could be to much pressure for the disc to spin freely. Can you hear the Laser focus? This might be hard to hear it will sound like a little tick. If you cant hear it tick I would move on and inspect this internally later. Can you hear the Laser move down the rail? This will be a smooth sound of the gears, it should not be a really clicky sound. If you can't hear it move down the track OR it is very clicky follow this.
It would look like this if your UMD door was off. You should open the UMD door and carefully manually move the laser to the right side of the assembly. Use a sharp THIN probe to manually move the WHITE gear under the metal housing. It is quite hard to see it in the photos so I put a red star around it. I usually try and scrape the gears themselves to make sure there is no gunk or debris in the gear.
