Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console
I am also having the same problem. Blowing into the slot works for awhile then unable to read memory stick error. Placed same stick into another PSP and it reads fine. Placed it back into the problem PSP nothing. Please help.
If the problem is not the memory stick, then you have a damaged card slot in the psp.
when you insert it on slot, you must make it slowly. if you strongly inserted it, you must have damaged it. or in better cases you have a dirt, faulty contact in slot.
first, look inside the slot, and try to see if the contacts are intact and lined with each other, something like this: | | | | | | | if you see that some of the contact are out of place ( | | | / | | | ), you must take it back in place. the same problem happens with nintendo ds games. if dirt, buy a cleaning kit and clean the contacts.

The Memory card slot is to tiny for you to do what Dynomaster is suggesting. I am sorry to tell you that the card slot needs to be replaced. Replacing it yourself will result in damaging the motherboard. It needs to be done by a skilled PSP repair shop.
Click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen. Select "Video Game consoles" on the next screen. Pick a repair shop that has experince replacing the Memory card slot only. Ask them if they have ever done it before. Good luck dude

several beeps in a system is caused by a memory issue -- If you've recently added or tried to add additional memory to the computer and have started getting these beeps. Remove all new memory you've added to the computer. If the computer works fine after removing the new memory you're encountering either an incompatibility or defective new memory.
Sometimes when the computer is moved and/or over time a memory stick can become loose causing the computer to be unable to read the memory or get errors as it's reading it. Try fixing this issue by opening the computer removing each of the memory sticks you have in the computer and then placing them back into the computer.
If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer.
If you have more than one stick of memory try removing all but one stick of memory and boot the computer. If this does not resolve the issue try removing that stick of memory and try one of the other sticks of memory.
the specs can be found at this link
the system you have is upgradable to 4G of RAM, and this RAM must be installed in equal pairs
so if you have 4 slots to insert memory in (assuming you will retain the 2 256M) , you must install the other slots by 2 512M, 2 1G or 2 2G DIMMs -- make sure you isntall exact same DIMMs, dont mix memory makers or specs, other than what Dell specifies
memory type must be
PC2700 (333-MHz) or PC3200 (400-MHz) DDR SDRAM
i hope this helps --
