PSP Corrupt Data

Ok This Is A Long...... Story

I got a PSP for my birthday and all has been well until now....

I recently got a disc in PSM3 it had programs on it like a GPS and A ScreenShot Program. I have a Macintosh so it was a little bit strange as mac doesnt have the missing sync to be able to do alot of the stuff u can do with a psp on a Pc. I tried loading them on but i didnt know to much of what i was doing so i couldnt get it working. I plugged my PSP back into the computer and started to play my games and i had been playing them for about 5 days ,when my PSP data suddenly said "corrupt" i was like WTF! so i had to reformat the PSP Memory Card (4GB MagicGate Sony Duo) . I then put my friends Memory Card in my PSP and played of my friends saved data. I then saved his Data to my memory card and it worked fine. Then i turned it on this morning and it said all my data was corrupt (Once again i was like WTF!). I Reformated the Memory card and then tried to load anotha save game from the PSM3 DVD to my memory card . I did that and turned my PSP on again and it said Data Corrupt. I tried to save my own game data it first said save failed then i managed to save it so i turned the psp of and on again and it said Data Corrupt!!!!


Plz tell me wat to do as i am realy worried


also i didnt get a warranty thing in my psp box . if u got one can u plz take a picture of it so i can see wat it looks like so i can check that i definetly dont have it.


Thankyou so very much

    i keep tyrin to download video clips from my pc to my psp. i just recently found out how to upload the cilps...but the file said it was corupt data... what do i do? plz help.... :~ (

    I purchased a Sony Memory Stick PRO Duo 4GB MAGICGATE from Hong Kong on ebay. The item was new, sealed and guaranteed to work. It lets me save once per game. If I try to overwrite a file it becomes corrupted. If I do not overwrite but turn the game off, when I try to load the file it also says that the file is corrupted. I am also pretty sure that this problem also prohibits my PC from recognizing my E drive when I try to save music on my PSP. I need help. Thanks.

    I bought a 1GB SanDisk memory stick pro duo magicgate from Asda and my son was able to save and load games, music, and photos for months. Then he tried to save a game he had saved many times before and the save failed because the card was locked. Loads reported that the data was corrupted. The card does not allow for the deletion of corrupted data nor will it respond to a reformat. Unfortunately I did not keep the receipt.

Same problem
i tried to buy new memory stick ,, have many read about 4gig memory duo it has same problem "CORRUPTED FILE" ..

Posted on Feb 26, 2010

It's the memory card. Your psp is obviously fine if it can play games. I was in the same situation. Those ebay memsticks are counterfeit and thus made from inferior materials. You just have to buy a real one at the store.

Its probably your firmware version?

Ok my psp wont turn on..the green light comes on but nothing on the screen??please help its a birthday presant.


This problem is not so quickly remedied. Considering it's a birthday present (and recent I'm assuming), the warranty should still be in-tact. You're going to have to contact Sony and ship it back to them so they can send you a new one (or refurbished one at their discretion).

If you recently installed a custom homebrew, you're going to be out of luck.

What I would recommend trying first is to see if your PSP will turn on without a battery (just having it plugged into the outlet). If it works, replace the battery, since a lot of software functionality is within the PSP's battery. If it does not work, contact Sony and have them replace it.

In my psp i have stored some games and files so when i open it .It shows data corrupt so how should i repair it please


Your psp might have been downgraded or modified recently, the "data corrupt" are those games and files not recognized by the current version of firmware you have on your psp, meaning those are not compatible with your current firmware.

Opening sound is different....? then games freeze...


The startup sound changes on your birthday and also on holidays, such as New Year's Day, I believe. If it's your birthday, happy birthday.

If you're playing pirated games, the games are often corrupt. It's one of the perils of stealing software. Hopefully, it hasn't broken your DS. Good luck!

PSP with corrupt/unofficial firmware 3.03 OE-C (Code DADADADA)


Try to upgrade it 3.52 first and then jump to the latest 3.90. If you want to keep a CFW then check out http://www.dark-alex.org/ for more info.

Worst case you might have to 'unbrick' it with a Pandora's battery. See http://forums.qj.net/f-psp-pandora-discussion-207/t-guide-make-the-perfect-pandoras-battery-124530.html for a really good guide on how to make your own safely and the steps needed to 'unbrick' a corrupt PSP.
