Re: PSP wont play games or movies

Go here to update your firmware and x your fingers. Generally, these things happen after you use a new game that updates parts of the firmware without you knowing it.

Good luck

How can i fix the problems with my PSP

Sounds like you need to update your firmware and is causing all the games you downloaded (on the old firmware) to not work properly. The alternative is to re-download all the games that seem to be affected. If this doesn't work, make sure you are getting your games from a legitimate source otherwise they wont play correctly regardless.

Loading a custom firmware will solve this problem, because this problem is related to your PSP's firmware that's why it wont play any game at all...
