Question about Video Game Consoles & Games
There are a number of possibilities for this.
First, If the machine is quite old, it may be overheating due to dust buildup on the motherboard. You will need to slightly disassemble the PSP in order to fix that. Additionally, if the PSP has an older OS on it, you can download the updated one from Sony's website and use it to update your system, which will potentially solve your problem.
Otherwise, if the console has been exploited, you may have junk software running in the background that is taking resources from your games. If this is the case, you may need to re-install your Custom Firmware and attempt to install your custom plugins one by one until everything works as you want it to. Additionally, you may simply have accidentally set your CPU clock speed to a number lower than the games need in order to run at full speed. To fix this, just press the select button on the PSP's main menu and change your game clock speed setting from the VSH menu that comes up. The default setting is 333/133, so I recommend that you use that.

Your psp must be custom firmwared for you to be able to play games from the ISO folder, to custom firmware it, it must have a pandora battery and the files required. You can buy pandoras batterys and a magic memory stick off ebay for a reasonable price. Hope this helps

SOURCE: my psp always hangs
Instead of using a card reader, try to use the PSP in USB Mode with a connected cable. This may allow you to access portions that you currently are unable to access so that you may be able to backup the games.
Also, has your PSP been modded with a Pandora?

I'm assuming that when you say "chipped" you mean "hacked"
If this is the case and you have an M33 firmware, you have 2 options.
1. get it reflashed or update it to a newer firmware which will reset all of your settings.
2. press select and at the top of the screen there will be a menu that you can change 2 cpu speeds. play with those settings until the games play smoothly.
If that doesn't work your only option is choice #1.
