Everytime i go to a psp store,the store owner always say that my psp needs to be modified b4 they can download games into my psp. Does my psp really needs to be modified to play downloaded games?

Yes and No.
The only legal download games are in the Playstation Store.
If you are downloaded illegal versions of the PSP games, you need a modified PSP to play them.

If you are attempting to download ROMs to play on emulators, you also need a modified PSP to run the emulator.

Cant play games downloaded for psp

make sure that you put the downloaded games in the GAME folder (capital letters are important) which itself is inside the PSP folder (capitals also important) so the folder you would put them in would look like F:\PSP\GAME\
All game files should end with PSP.
To play the games, from the PSP menu go to GAME then press X and scroll to select your game then press X again to confirm.
If your PSP firmware is above 1.5, it might be that you are trying to play protected games and it is why they cannot play.

Make sure you do not violate any intellectual property.

How to download games on psp 3004

There are different kinds of games for the PSP. There are Flash games, ISO/CSO games, PBP Games, etc. Depending on your firmware type, (Custom or Official) there are special kinds you can play:

Flash games are small, quick games you can play on your PSP Browser. They don't require special firmware to run. However, the flash games tend to run slow because of the lack of memory. Download them to your PSP/COMMON Folder and type in the location of the content in the address bar. 

Ex: file:/psp/common/name.swf

For PBP Games, you can download them from the PSN and save them to your PSP/GAME Folder. These games are mostly demos. The PBP Files should have its own folder under PSP/GAME. To play them, go to your game section of your XMB and if you did it correctly, the game should be there. 

Now, for ISO/CSO files. These are Disc image files that can be played on your PSP. They're usually for backup purposes. You save them in your ISO Folder (You might have to make this folder). To play them, just play as you would with a PBP Game.

Is psp2004pb can play games in memory stick?

psp can only play games using the UMD drive, you can only play game demos using the memory stick.
Upgrade your psp firmware version to 5.00, it adds playstation store to the psp where you can buy and download full games onto your psp, all you need to do is create an account using the playstation store on your psp if you upgrade it to 5.00.

Use this link to help you upgrade you psp to 5.00
don't forget to download psp media manager 3.00 on your pc.
use this link for psp media manager.

Good Luck. if you hacve questions write back.
