I would usually need a bit more detail to solve this, but if you have downloaded the update file from the Web onto your computer then simply put the file into the folder on your PSP, lcoated at X:\PSP\GAME, where X:\ is the drive Windows gives your PSP. Then, disconnect, start up the PSP, scroll over to [Game] then to [Memory Stick], then choose the System Software Update that should be there. If you haven't downloaded the update, there are a couple of things you can do. You can go to, download the update, and do the above steps. Or, if you have a Wi-Fi connection at home or somewhere with the internet, just fire up the PSP go to [Settings], then to [Network Update] at the top and donwload and install the software like that. Hope this helps...

Memory disk not inserted cant play psp

Please click the link below to be taken to the official Playstation PSP / PSPGo memory stick center. It will show you where the memory card goes on their devices.
PSP / PSPGO Memory Stick Center

Once you find out where the memory stick is on your son's system, I would take it out and reinsert it several times. This has happened to me before and I had to remove/reinsert a few times for it to "find the right position". As a last resort, I would format the memory card and see if that helps. The steps to format on on that link as well. Worst case scenario is the memory stick has gone bad, but you can pick up a replacement for under $10.00 US. Hope this helps.

How to download for psp games

  • Download desired game from an Internet game site onto your computer.
  • 2 Connect the PSP to the computer using the USB cable. The memory stick needs to be in the console at the time of connection.
  • 3 Copy the downloaded game files into the PSP game path on the removable drive. This puts the downloaded game onto the PSP memory stick.

    PSP doesnt recognize the memory pro dua ? what do I do to fix

    Is your memory stick detected by your PSP? If not, then there something wrong with the memory. Try out to insert it to other unit to be sure it will works, if it works then the problem is in memory socket. Try to clean it by using a used toothbrush with isoprophyl alcohol, and let it dry then put it back.
    Hope it may helps...

    Before you go throwing any old video file onto your PSP, make sure you have the following items:
    • The PSP. This is self-explanatory.
    • The .MP4 video files.
    • Video conversion software to convert non-MP4 files to MP4, the format the PSP reads.

    The firmware/software 5.02 is official sony firmware, its can't load/play your iso game from your MS.. to load iso, You'll need install custom firmware on your psp, the latest cfw update is 5.00m33-3, You can find it by googling or see at my blog here!. how to create pandora - magic stick.

    To change your psp from official firmware you'll need pandora - magic stick (latest update DC7 - 4.01m33)for downgrading and install cfw,because since high kernel released, cfwcan be installing from 1.50 OF fat(old model) psp.. and 3.60 for slimpsp as startingpoint.

    Cannot play copied games in psp's memory stick after updating

    Hi Aneeshameeda

    I think the best solution is to downgrade your PSP system software to the original version and check if your games load. What might have happened is that the firmware software that was on the PSP was downgraded to play copied games, and now you've changed the firmware to a newer version and that is why your games won't load. You might hac=ve to get your PSP downgraded again to play the games from your memory card.

    I cant play games from memory

    Hi kalfan

    What happened was that when you downgraded your PSP to -play game from your memory stick, that version was loaded onto your PSP for a reason. What you did now is install the latest firmware and that disabled you from playing games from your memory stick. You might have to get your PSP downgraded again with the older firmware version.
