    Good good, have you ever try to hack you psp? I mean things like downgrade, custom firmware installation, ect. If you never did, you can try to select settings=>system settings=>restore default settings, and then try to update see if anything changes.

    If you haven't tried to hack it, and the reset does not work, your psp probably was hacked before and the idstorage was messed up, it's not a big deal if you don't update the firmware. I have written a little tip in this section, and if you want to repair that your self, grab your self a set of pandora kit (battery and memory stick), in case you bricked your psp and you can unbrick it.

How to Update PSP to Firmware Ver 6.20

It's easy to update/upgrade the Playstation Portable (PSP) 3000 system software to firmware version 6.20. There are two ways to do a PSP 6.20update - regular file download and network update. We did an update on our pink PSP 3000 using the network update procedure since our place has wifi.
Why did we choose network update in updating our PSP firmware to ver 6.20? It's much simpler. Here is a quick tutorial on how to carry out PSP 6.20 update using Network Update (Method 1):
  1. Go to Network Settings to configure your PSP WLAN by setting up an access point.
  2. Under Network Settings, it would be best to choose Automatic to simplify the process. Your PSP console will search for any wireless network available nearby.
  3. To Update System Software to the latest 6.20 firmware version, Go to Network Update. Be sure your battery is full because the update will fail if you turn off you PSP console or if the unit shuts down due to lack of battery power.
Method 2: Download File To Update PSP 6.20 Firmware Using a PC. If you prefer to update your console using the download method, here are the simple steps in doing this:

Hello,, im one of the user of psp go and unfortunately i have a problem using my new psp go.i tried to update it but the result is failed and said contact technical support for assistance..i try to turn it...

You have to contact Sony technical support for assistance like your PSP says.

If the update hung in the middle, the software on your PSP GO is probably no good anymore. Sony will have to repair it. While there are ways to rebuild the system software on the PSP-1000 and PSP-2000 systems, there is no way to do it on the PSP GO (or the PSP-3000).

You don't need your manual in this case!

Go to Settings > Network Update.

You'll need wireless net connection for this!

Download the update... go from there.... simple... done!

Garmin c510 software update

You don't say if you tried resetting the 510 after the update.

To do a reset remove the grey faceplate trim piece.  Along the right side of the screen there is a reset button. Press the reset button then plug the 510 into a power supply. The 510 should automatically power up and reboot.

It's possible that the update was corrupted when it was downloaded, or there is a problem with the processor. If you can't get your GPS to reboot, your PC wont recognise the GPS and you'll probably have to send the unit out for service.

If you have already tried the reset please rate as "thanks for trying"

Try formatting, synch your library using a synch software like media player, realplayer, media monkey etc. Do not remove the USB if it is 'Updating'.
