Not a bid deal for the psp region, all psps are made in china and make no difference if it's a hongkong, taiwan, uk, ect ect.

You need to switch it off. Hold R trigger and switch it on, go to recovery menu and set the ISO UMD Mode to M33 DRIVER OR SONYNP9660 DRIVER, which will enable to play games like ISO or CSO that you own legal copies without the proper UMD disk.

Downloaded psp game from torrent to pc. after put it in savedata on psp got the message defect data.why?

when you downloaded the game it should have been in a zip, rar, etc file. meaning it was compressed. first thing after downloading the game you should have uncompressed the file giving you "game name.iso" or "game name.cso" you do not put these into your savedata folder but instead on your iso folder that is located in root of your psp. i.e. (if your psp is connected to your pc) my computer>removable drive (meaning your psp)>iso. simply put its where your music, video, picture folders are located. just create an iso folder there

before i get way ahead of myself let me ask a question
most common mistake is..... do you have a custom firm ware (cfw) installed on your psp or the official firm ware from sony. most people think they can download a game from torrent sites and it'll work. but for it to work you have to have cfw installed. you can check youtube for psp cfw

If you downloaded ISO/CSO Games and a message says CORRUPTED DATA, that either means you downloaded incorrectly or you didn't save it in the ISO Folder of your PSP Memory Stick root.
