Question about Sony ACY-BR81/OB

1 Answer

My psp will not update. I have 4 different games with updates on them and none of them work when I try to update the system. It will get all the way to the actual update and then say that the disc cannot be read on all of these discs (which work in another psp just fine)and then won't allow me to back out of it at all and the only way to restart the system is to take the battery out.

My psp will not read umd's and it will not let me do an system update i tried to get the help manual but i can't do anything on it at all what should i do

Try going to and download the latest system update, download it with your pc. Then plugin your psp, and go to X:/PSP/GAME. Then Create a folder called "UPDATE", place that .pbp file in there. Now go to the game tab on your XMB and click memory stick. Run the system update and it will update.

Memory card inserted but none detected. The memory card is the only one I've used since I've had the PSP. The read indicator just flashes. The card checks out on my PC and PS3.

If the card works ok on other systems but not your PSP it sounds liek an issue with the PSP. You can try another card just to be sure. You could also try updating your system software on the PSP to see if that helps at all.

PSP-2000 Update problem

Firmware 3.60 is rather old, I would suggest upgrading to 4.01 or something in between before jumping to 5.02, this may clear the problem.

The network update feature of the PSP usually works better than when downloading via PC because there is less room for error. After you upgrade to a 4.xx firmware, try using the network update again.
