  • Anonymous Jan 31, 2008

    I bought my son a PSP for Christmas and he has not been able to use it. AT first we couldn't get the disk to load, then sometimes it would but about 5-10 mins. into the game it will stop working. Then it totally wouldn't work all we get is can not read disk. I just bought him a new game for it but it says the same thing. The disk won't load. What's the problem?

Put a umd inside wait a sec or two open and check if there is a red light, den the lens is fine its most likely that your cd has been scratched. Try using dev-hook or a custom firmware to read games from memcard

Psp original fat kind wont read disks

you can find a used fat modle on crages list for around 40 bucks, and used fat ones at a place like game stops 70-90. one option i would try is a little rubbing alcohol on one side of a Qtip, wipe the lazer eye very gently with the wet side then dry it with the other end of the Qtip, let sit for about 10 mins and giver a go. (DO THIS AT OWN RISK) =D if your very gentle you wount mess it up, the eye is glass and some times it just gets dusty. hope it helps

Error code can't read game disc, everything else works.

your disk reading lens is dirty or bad. you may try cleaning it with a q tip and rubbing alcohol. If it still does not work it will need to be serviced

Sony psp

have you tried various disks? certan disks may either be scratched or dusty so you coul take a can of compressed air and ust out both some umd's and the umd tray of the psp. also, if you're usuing a custom firmware, you may find it will work once you revert to an official firmware

My psp doesnt read UMDs properly

I started to have this problem with the games that I play all the time. What I noticed is that the game starts to sink into the case. I got mine to play by first, pushing on the reading side of the disk. Later, I had to take the plastic front piece off that has the UMD label. You have to be careful because the actual UMD disk can come out after that. You also have to be careful because you don't want to crack the whit case that holds the UMD. I hope that this helps.
