Playstation won't finish loading

My playstation is having a hard time finishing the loading process.  The game turns on and you can play, but when you start a saved game it gets stuck in the middle of loading.  The loading bar just keeps going and going and never finishes.

How to jailbreak your ps3 (backup and play homebrew games)

How to jailbreak PS3(PlayStation 3)? chips available at

Follow the complete step by step guide posted below to jailbreak your PlayStation 3 to enable you to create backups of original discs.
Pre-requisites are as follows:
* Any (FAT or SLIM) PlayStation 3 Console running firmware 3.41 or above.
* PS Jailbreak USB Modchip.
* An external USB drive formatted to FAT32 with the "Backup Manager" file on it which you can download from here.
* Original disc of any PS3 game which you want to backup.
Step 1: Power off your console and make sure that there isn't any disc in the Blu-ray drive.
For the SLIM Model: Remove the power chord before plugging in the USB.
For the FAT model: Turn off the power switch found at the backside of the console.

Step 2: Now insert the USB based PS Jailbreak Modchip to any USB port of your choice on the console. Once the USB is in place, Power ON the console and immediately press the "Eject" button. There should now be two LEDs turned-on on the USB as the console is loading.
If the LED light on the USB turns green, you are good to go as the PS Jailbreak has been successfully loaded.
If the LED turns red, then it means that the PS Jailbreak Modchip didn't load successfully. This usually happens when the Power and Eject button sequence wasn't performed properly. Start from Step 1 again if you end up having the red light.
Step 3: Once the console has finished booting up with the PS Jailbreak Modchip, plug-in the external USB storage device which has the "Backup Manager" setup to the console's USB port.
Step 4: Now navigate to the "Game Menu" and select the option "Install Package Files" and then select "manager.pkg" file. This will basically install the "Backup Manager" application that you download earlier to your hard drive.
Step 5: When the "manager.pkg" file is done loading, scroll all the way down in the "Game Menu" and there you should see a new application called "Backup Manager", run it.
Step 6: Now we're in the Backup Manager app. Insert the game in the console's optical drive which you want to backup. Press "O" and you will be asked where to make the backup, on the internal HDD or the external storage source connected via USB. This process is further elaborated by the following screenshots.
Step 7: In order to play a game via the backup you just made, insert any original game disc into your console (To emulate the loading process), run "Backup Manager" in the "Game Menu". Press "X" to play the selected backup game.
Step 8: Now you will be taken back to the main menu. In the "Game Menu" you will see the game which you have backed up. Now you can select the game, and run it without having the disc in the console's drive.
Oh and you must make sure that the PS Jailbreak USB Modchip is connected to your console at all the times when you are playing the games via backups.

How can i put hole games on psp for free with no custum firewire

This is not possible for free, for a low charge you can get alot games from playstation network.

The original Sony firmware also won't run homebrew software, it will only run the games bought from Playstation Network and original UMD's

If you want to play backuped game and homebrew, you still have to flash custom firmware on your psp.

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.

Got a Japanese Playstation 1... can't interact with it

Two options:

Buy a solderless Mod Chip online to bring it back to life; which would be hard to find being that the PS1 is not mainstream anymore. ( Might get lucky and find one at ) Also heard of people using a boot disc with a 8 GB memory card to Mod the older playstations; don't think that will work for you since it doesn't even load a game.

Another options would be to clean that lense like a Doctor's Office. In the past my lenses have got extremely dirty, so dirty that when I cleaned them with a Q-tip lightly dipped in a cleaning solution the Q-tip was black before I finished.

You should consider getting a newer system like a PS3 or a PS2; they have several PS2 systems at a Pawn Shop or Used Game Store and all the PS1 games play on the PS2.
