Re: psp updateing

It is strictly prohibited to remove the battery or unplug the AC adaptor or remove UMD disc while the update is in progress and you had done the same mistake. now your PSP is bricked. it means your PSP is useless untill you replace motherboard of it with a new one. your PSP Operating system in motherboard is crashed.

My sony psp 3000 has a version 5.51. how i can i hack it so it can play downloaded games?

The psp 3000 and psp go are designed specifically to prevent this from happening. With each new update you install onto these systems there is new preventative software to ensure that this is not possible. Don't get me wrong there are a few hacks out there for some of the older versions. But I would strongly suggest NOT to do this because like I said before, the new updates (with preventative software) can potentially corrupt the data on the psp when installing a new update and render it completely useless. Usually the hack prevents any new updates from installing at all. While the older games will play just fine. When you try to play a newer game, that needs this updated software and the hack prevents new software updates being installed, you can not play it. And who does not want to play the newest game that comes out. Putting a hack like that on the psp also voids the warranty. Unless you know really well how use a hack like this and uninstall/rewrite/re-install this hack every time an update occures you will find yourself without your psp sooner than you would like.

How do I update my psp 1000/2000 so it will play the new games, will it still play the older games if I do.

Yes, updating the firmware will allow you to play your old games too. You can update the firmware by selecting "Network Update" in your "Settings" menu. Even some games come with firmware, you can find this in the "Game" slider on the PSP after you put a game in.

My Psp wouldn't download any gaming materials.

You need to download the Update from and store it on your memory stick. Evidently you have a corrupted update file on the UMD. The only way outside of that is get a new UMD game that does not have a corrupted update file.

New game wont start

This is terrible to say, and I feel bad for you. This sounds as though your PSP is Bricked. Tell all your friends if they are asked to upgrade by a game, plug up your PSP to the power cord and keep it charged during the upgrade needed to run the new games. If your power fails during the upgrade, you will BRICK your PSP. Contact Sony, its their fault.
