You can press the O (back) button. If the discs are not reading you may need to clean the lens of thelaser with a cotton swab. Lightly dampen the tip of the swab with rubbing alcohol and swab the lens. Then use the dry tip to dry the lens. Try it see if it helps.

My son has a nintendo ds lite and when ever I insert any game it will not play the game. It comes to the main screen where it has the clock as well as the calendar. Does not matter what game it is, can you...

When you get to that screen, there should be a menu option for the game that you just tap to start the game. Look for a menu option on that screen that looks like the name of the Game Card you have inserted.
If you want to skip that screen, set the Nintendo DS to AUTO START the game.
To set auto startup, see

WHen I turn on my PSP I get a yellow screen/Menu. It has Settings, Camera, Music, Video etc. How do I exit this to play a game?

This is the XMB its the main menu of the system. Games will be located under the Controller Icon. To play games insert a UMD, or if a game is downloaded and saved on the memory card, go through the icons under Controller icon. A disk icon will appear and show a preview screen to the game, press X to start the game.

PS2 won't read Original/Backup CD/DVD

The Purpose behind the guide to you is emulate your exploit disk, instead of using the disk you use, you're storing the exploit files themselves to your memory card ie. you're ps2 menu and HDloader and any other .elf file. Then you're using the PS1 (retail) game to cause a buffer overflow exploit to load the elf files stored on your memory card, once this is done you get that modified PS2 menu. As I said in the first clairication request the swapping stuff doesn't pertain to you becuase you have a mod chip installed. The main purpose for you to use what i posted eariler was to give you your modified .elf PS2 menu back (cuz all of your tools were stored before on your exploit CD wich is a non retail burned copy) this gives you a way to boot up with things that are native to the PS2 (memory card and retail PS1 game) from the .elf PS2 menu you should be able to see better what is going on becuase you can access each disk type contents from that menu and should be able to launch the game (if your laser lense is functioning enough to read retail PS1 games) from the menu itself. Or if you've been using HDloader plop that .elf onto the memory card (explained on my site) and just navigate to that via the .elf PS2 menu and you'll at least be able to load games stored on your hard drive. This is just something you can use till you get your new PS2 chipped out.

Of coarse this is all speculation. If your PS2 can't even read retail PS1 games none of this will even work.

Sry I don't know anyone that does the chipped stations nemore. I'm sure someone on this site still does though.

Plays up to, but won't read past the main menu..?

I think it might be the drive itself. Go down to Radioshack,PC World or where ever(not wal-mart) to get it checked out.

What you're seeing is the menu. You need to put the disc in the console, or the disc is dirty and will not play, so it then automatically goes to the menu.
