When ever i go to save or load a game from a umd the psp doesn't read the memory stick (512mb sony msproduo) it freezes up and all i can do it press the home button. So I can play the game but can't save progress or load it.I put my bro mem stick into my PSP and same thing happened. When I put my mem stick into his Psp no probs, so it's not mem stick prob. I can still play demo games that I have downloaded from the net to my mem stick I can still play music and view pics and watch movies on umd and on mem stick. I have used proper stuff to clean mem port.This happened after i updated to 3.71. My brother updated as well but no probs for himn!!!.my psp is out of warranty.

Re: psp not saving or loading
Did yout try using the same UMD game your brother was using and see if the game format has anything to do with it? Since you upgraded, the UMD game may be old, and might not work with Version 3.71. It sounds like your PSP is working just fine other than that.

Check the firmware of your PSP. Some games may not work if the latest firmware is not installed.
You usually get this message if the UMD has errors reading or the UMD is not present or was ejected in the middle of playing a game. You should try testing your PSP with other disks, if it doesn't have the same problem with other disks then your UMD is most likely scratched or damaged.
If you are using a modded PSP then you will get this error if you load a game from the memory stick without having a disk inserted in the drive. Or if the game that you are trying to load requires a higher firmware version. You will need to install a higher modded firmware to fix the error if that is your case.
Are you trying to play the game from the memory stick? Or are you trying to play a game from the UMD and retrieve the saved game data from the memory stick?
5.00 m33 is a custom firmware that allows the PSP to play games stored on a memory stick. If you upgrade to 5.50, which is an original Sony firmware, that functionality will go away. If you have custom firmware, you should never upgrade it or the features like playing homebrew or loading games from a memory stick will go away.
If you have custom firmware, make sure your "execute boot.bin" and "plain modules" are both disabled under your advanced configuration settings of the recovery menu. Also, make sure your ISO/CSO games are saved in the ISO Folder of your memory stick and that your UMD MODE is set to NO UMD REQUIRED. Your PBP Games should be saved in your PSP/GAME Folder.
If you have custom firmware installed you can download umd dumper: http://www.psp-hacks.com/file/38.Just put the umddump and the umddump% in PSP,GAME and then put the umd you want to copy on your psp and on your psp go to game, memory stick and click x on umd dumper.Then when its done coping go to game, memory stick and there should be the game of the umd and you dont have to had the umd to play the game.
You should reformat the psp memory stick if the game is copied, but for the UMD, for M33 versions firmware, you press Select on your psp and select UMD instead of memory stick. You should press the select on other parts of your selections on your psp. Do not press other things such as saved data utility, etc.
First to have games on your psp you have to have a program on your psp called umd dumper. you can find it on google by typing umd dumper and clicking on the first choice that comes up and then dowloading it.( before you continue here you must make sure your psp is downgraded, atleast vesion 3.11 or lower thats what i have. go to the file where you saved your download, double click and extract all the files from it. now connect your psp to your computer. now go to your downloaded folder and find two folder called umd dumper %%%%, copy and paste those to files on your psp that is still connected to your computer on a file called psp. now diconnect your psp and go to your game section on your psp and click on memorystick you might find two folders, umd dumper and corrupter file or just umd dumper, dont pay attention to the corrupted file. put a game in your psp and click the umd dumper, it will automatically start extracting files from your umd and put it on your memory stick ( make sure you have enough space on your memory stick depending on the game) after its done now connect the psp back to the computer and this time you will notice a new file with a umd picture on your folder, drag the umd folder and drop it in a folder called ISO, if you dont have a folder called ISO look on the internet on how you can get on on your psp. now when you are done diconnect it and go to your games section and on your memory stick you will have the game you just extracted. click on it and enjoy your game onyour memory stick..( if this information is not accurate enough you can go to, youtube.com and type umd dumper and watch some of the videos on there one of them might give you a better understanding)
