    I guess it's sony's firmware, the psp is my sons and nothing extra has been added, if that helps..

  • glm1967 Dec 25, 2007

    Well it is set for the UMD to start automatically and the only thing that is listed under game is -game sharing-saved data utility(empty)-memory stick..also when I put the UMD in it makes a sound like it maybe binding and not always turning(just a weird noise)have tried several UMDs to make sure it wasn't the UMD..my son said his cousin was playing it and then turned it off and when my son went back to play it, it was like this..is it possible that something mechanical is failing (because of the sound I'm hearing)the software version is 3.50

The reason the umd wont load is because someone shut the psp off when the game was loading. so whoever did that just messed up your psp. i know cause someone did it to mine now i have to get it fixed or buy a new one. and to get the psp fixed its not guna be cheap.

Just try to remove the battery of your psp and your memory stick for just a second and put it back, turn on your psp and insert your umd game to your psp. maybe your current firmware wont support your new game disc, try to update it using your new umd game disc. that maybe will solve your problem.

Pls let us know whether you are running on custome firmware or sony original firmware.

    Running with a sony firmware won't allow you to play ISO games even you own legal back. You have to buy UMD discs, put it into your psp, and go to the game section, select umd, and the game will run.

    In most cases, the UMD will run automatically on psp startup, it's a sony's default setting. The memory stick in this case will be used as a storage for game save data, not for game itself.

  • Frank Lee
    Frank Lee Dec 25, 2007

    Well most games runs good on 3.50 except a few, so it has nothing to do with the firmware. You can try to reset the psp in the system setting section, will allows you to restore all default settings. And see if it works. If not, you are most likely to have a umd optical failure, which is not easy to repair that yourself, you can still find replacement part on the ebay and seek for professional installation. 

    Hope this helps. Btw, Merry Xmas.

You cannot play .iso or .cso files (or any homebrew games) on your PSP unless you have firmware 1.5 or a custom firmware. Any "off-the-shelf" firmware such as 4.2 will not support these types of files. They will just show up as "Corrupted Data".

You can go through the process of downgrading your firmware from 4.2 to 1.5, then from 1.5 you may upgrade to a custom firmware such as 5.00 m33-4. Doing so would require a good deal of technical know-how and a LOT of patience. If you do not want to risk ruining your PSP, do NOT try this. Research methods of downgrading such as "Pandora's Battery" and other firmware downgraders.

You were able to download games from the PSP website because they are programmed to play on the current firmware. Even if you were to (somehow) properly convert the .iso or .cso files to an EBOOT.PBP file, it would not run unless you have firmware 1.5 or custom.

When you say scanner do you mean laser that reads the umd?

you could replace the laser from one off ebay
but the thing with replacing lasers is that adjusting the laser so it reads the disk it tricky

here is a shop that repairs lasers in psps
http://www.ipaqrepair.co.uk/ipaqpart1418.html

or if you want to do it your self
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Sony-PSP-2000-Slim-Original-UMD-Laser-Lens-Repair-Parts_W0QQitemZ290386195846QQcategoryZ127746QQcmdZViewItemQQ_trksidZp4340.m263QQ_trkparmsZalgo%3DSIC%26its%3DI%26itu%3DUCI%252BIA%252BUA%252BIEW%252BFICS%252BUFI%26otn%3D11%26ps%3D63

also you say it is 1 year old from brand new? bought from the shops

Sounds like the laser is shot or possibly dirty, either way needs lookin at. so may need new laser. my own personal preference, go custom firmware and do away with using the laser, theres lots info on the web if interested.

That's odd, this has happened to me in a similiar way, except for me my PSP would keep saying "Do you want to exit the game?" For you two, i would recommend examining the discs and make sure they're not scratched too much. Also examine the inside of your PSP where you insert the UMD, is there a loose or broken piece. In my opinion, much like my PS2, the games get too scratched (despite being in that case) to function and will stop being real altogether, although i am still trying to figure out why all games stop working...
Hope this helped in any way

If your PSP won't play any games, that could be the games problem, or it could be the PSP. TO start of with, try rubbing the discs with rubbing alcohal. If not, try blowing in the area where you put the games CDs in. If that doesn't even work, see if you can still return it with your warranty, but that's all the help I can give.

Hope I helped, good luck. And please rate.

This sounds like the laser could be going out. Before that is said try taking a Q-Tip and some alcohol, open the cover and to the best of you ability clean the laser off with the Q-Tip makng sure you leave no fibers behind. It is ok if some alcohol gets down inside of the system it will not hurt the system like water does.

No, to play a game you do not need to have a memory stick inside the PSP. However, you will need one to save you place in a game or download games.

There is also a version of the PSP that has 16 gigs of internal memory.

Let me know in the comments if you have any questions

If it is bricked, it will not boot up at all, it will hang at a black screen. Only method of repair is to take into consideration any configuration that has not been done. Such as games being run as 1.5 mode instead of the current firmware, ect. If so, reflashing is your best bet.

Hi,

If you are planning on playing the psp games from the umd then i guess you should not be having any problems, but with the latest update installed on your psp most times games stored on previous versions won't load. You'll have to hack the current software version your are running on.

Hope this worked.

Regards

If the PSP that you bought is pre-owned... then..

..bring it back to 'Gamestop' & tell them truthfully that the PSP you bought doesn't play UMDs.

.. maybe there're problem's with the UMDs? Are they pre-owned?

If the PSP is brand new when you bought it, you can claim for FREE repairs, or perhaps a replacement from SONY! Mostly warrantys are just 1yr period, so you better 'do what you have to do' before Christmas!

When you insert a UMD into the PSP, then what happens? What appears on the screen?

- Do you hear the UMD drive spinning for quite awhile, but not loading up under the Game column?

?????

If you can't read ISO/CSO Files, that either means that you didn't download correctly or that you didn't place them in the ISO folder of your memory stick. If you can't play UMD games and you have custom firmware, make sure "execute boot.bin" and plain modules" are disabled under the recovery menu. If you have official firmware, you can't play ISO/CSO games unless you have Devhook. If you have official firmware and you can't read UMD games, then it's probably your lens.

take the umd out then restart the psp & put it back in, that may work.

If you only hear a rattle then it might be another case of locked lens. For some reason the lens on the phat psps have been known to lock, meaning that they will spin but won't read. This might be the problem and you might want to contact sony about it.

SOURCE: how to upgrade my psp version 3.72 to version 3.9?

UMMM you don't need to upgrade you need to downgrade. Once you downgrade you can actually go ahead and upgrade to a custom firmware wich are the ones that allow you to do that and much more. If you really want to know how to do this and are still interested please send me an email at angelitoseriv@gmail.com. I say email because its a long process and i would need to ask you some questions about your psp and other stuff to so if you want more help send me a message with psp info as the tittle.

SOURCE: psp.when i update 2 6.0 version my games are gone

your PSP was hacked???
and you update it to 6.0 official firmware?, now you have to rehack it in custom firmware in order to run homebrews or iso. to rehack your PSP visit PSPhacks.com and if you cant, search on the net for "local hackers" near your house.

SOURCE: about psp version 3.95

All of you need to get custom firmware installed onto your psp. The latest edition is 4.01 M33 for which instructions can be downloaded from the internet. There is NO WAY sony would let you copy games to a memory stick and just play them on your psp otherwise everyone would just be swapping games between each other. Custom firmware is a hack to enable these copies (er...I mean "back-ups") be played on your psp from the memory stick. It is risky if you get custom firmware from an unreliable source or if you don't know what you are doing. Youtube has some valuable video guides to help.

PSP not loading game


Hi,

I guess you must have updated your psp to more recent version while you were online. This i guess is one of the reasons why your psp games on your memory card is not showing on the screen.

You'll need to check the version your psp is running at the moment by going to System Setting > System Information, and you'll see the version that your psp is sunning on. Most versions above Version 5 might not play games on your memory card. You'll have to use umd's to play games.

I cant play the game in memory stick..


you'd first have to downgrade your psp. try to lower it to 3.50 or 4. something. then insert the .pbp file... this file is a hack.. or an upgrader for a psp.. once you do this.. your psp will be back to version 5.03 but now you can play downloadable games.

Custom firmware


Earlier you have said that you were able to play games from memory stick and since you updated your psp firmware the didn't worked.
First Check your current firmware version . To do this go to
Settings > System Settings > System Information on your PSP . If you your version showing  for example 5.00 M33 you are still in Custom firmware. In this case you should able to play the games from memory stick. or else you memory stick is back... or you custom settings are wrong.

If its showing  for example 5.00 you are with Sony's official firmware. In this case you wont be able to play the games from  memory stick. From here to make your PSP play the games from memory stick you need to Downgrade your PSP. Only way to make this possible is through Pandora Battery and Magic Memory Stick.
So please check your version and let me know so i can guide you further. Also tell me whether your PSP is PHAT or SLIM & LITE..... or check the version of your PSP by removing the battery. Underneth it find some letters and numbers PSP-100x / PSP-200x / PSP-300x

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.
