Re: how to upgrade psp ver.2.81

Under settings at the top, there should be an icon with two arrows forming a circle saying "Network Update". Click on that and it will try to connect to the internet to load the update. The latest version for the PSP is version 3.80. Hope that helped! If you have any questions, please ask!

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:

I recently upgraded my psp 2000 ver 3.71 to ver 6.20, but now its not able to play the copied games. What should i do now??

ofcourse its not, and that always a factor you should think about before you upgrade, playing backups is not something Sony will endorse and well now i guess you will have to wait for another custom firmware, or just use a Pandora battery if your PSP 2000 supports that, because not all psp 2000 does that... well i guess you could just Google that.. and remember to read thing thoroughly before ever upgrading again!
