PSP wont play games

My PSP won't play any games. It turns on and makes a sound as if disc is loading but nothing further happens? I recently did a software update and this is becoming extremely frustrating. I have so many new games that I want to play but can't! Please Help!!!

Re: PSP wont play games

To play game on your memory stick you'll need Custom Firmware installed such as M33/OE on your PSP, else if you play a UMD. The last CFw Update is 3.71M33-3.

What is version on your PSP? (on PSP Menu, move across to the "Settings Menu". Scroll down, select to "System Settings" > "System Information" and you should see version of your PSP.)

Here's, how to install CFw Guides. Hope this be of some help/idea. Pls post back a detail should you need additional information. ^_^

Psp wont read discs

try cleaning the inside of it... maybe its just dusty so dust accumulates heat.. hence overheating the lens and watever's inside the psp.

Circular scratches on xbox 360 disc wont work in some areas of game.

The only real solution is to take it to your nearest DVD- Video Rental Store, or store that has a Disk Polishing Machine. The scratches are where the laser head, has scuffed the Disk. Therefore normal Polishing Won,t Work.
The disk needs to be resurfaced.

PSP Wont play games, and is going slow on other things! [HELP]

you,ve damaged the UMD Drive, or Laser.
hence disk read errors.
you,ll have to obtain a replacement UMD Drive ( e-bay )
Or alternatively you could look into firmware flashing and pandoras Battery.
This way you can play games from a memory stick.
