I can't get Valhalla Knights 2 to load on my psp


Update the system,....Alot of UMD games hang when they try to updeate from disc..If you download the update via internet and install it from the memory stick duo you should have no problem playing your game, the system will see that the firmware is up to par for the umd and will not do the system check so no lag time with loads...good luck hope this helps

Tony hawk project 8 wont load in psp


it might be that you need to update your firmware.

as newer games come out, they require features unlocked in the PSP.
the update of the PSP firmware usually lets you play newer software.

if the PSP loads the disk ok, goto the games XMB menu, and goto the option below UMB Disc.
It should say something like PSP™ Update ver. #.##

Help!


You might have PSP stop reading UMD discs, First you will do some trouble shooting with what might be wrong with your PSP unit.

first is the Disc Spinning motor. This will not let The disc in the UMD spin. On a working PSP you will hear the disc start to spin up, then you can hear the laser start to twitch, followed by the laser motor moving the laser down the rails.

2nd is something stuck in the UMD gear, try to clean the gear of arm of dust, plastic, soda, and even hair.

and at the last is the actual laser itself. It will not focus the laser to read the UMD disc.

Hopefully this help, Pls post back should you need additional information...!

Psps does load any discs


Ok Crowd,

All of you need to send your PSP off for repair. The UMD drives not reading is common fault of the PSP and the drive will need to be replaced. The power on Problem is possiblly a defective motherboard. They can be repaired.

Click on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen. Then select "Video Game Consoles" on the next screen. Pick a good REpair shop that has experience in repairing PSP's. Ask them if they know what a UMD is. Then Ask them if they have ever replaced a UMD drive. If so they know what they are doing. Find a good price
