Re: sony psp

Have you tried various disks? certan disks may either be scratched or dusty so you coul take a can of compressed air and ust out both some umd's and the umd tray of the psp. also, if you're usuing a custom firmware, you may find it will work once you revert to an official firmware

Movies wont play because of region

this is probably because the movies and/or the psp were not bought (or downloaded) in the same place. try changing your psp location settings if you can.

Und movies keep freezing but games play fine

What firmware version to you have? Make sure you have the latest custom firmware version. You can upgrade via the 5.00 M33 installation guide.

Custom firmware

Earlier you have said that you were able to play games from memory stick and since you updated your psp firmware the didn't worked.
First Check your current firmware version . To do this go to
Settings > System Settings > System Information on your PSP . If you your version showing  for example 5.00 M33 you are still in Custom firmware. In this case you should able to play the games from memory stick. or else you memory stick is back... or you custom settings are wrong.

If its showing  for example 5.00 you are with Sony's official firmware. In this case you wont be able to play the games from  memory stick. From here to make your PSP play the games from memory stick you need to Downgrade your PSP. Only way to make this possible is through Pandora Battery and Magic Memory Stick.
So please check your version and let me know so i can guide you further. Also tell me whether your PSP is PHAT or SLIM & LITE..... or check the version of your PSP by removing the battery. Underneth it find some letters and numbers PSP-100x / PSP-200x / PSP-300x

Internet videos

I don't think you can directly play movies from your web browser. Maybe if you have the latest firmware it will work.( i think the latest is around 3.80) If you want to add movies from the internet and SAVE them onto your PSP, then follow these steps:
1. Download Firefox if you don't have it
2. Goto the page with the movie you want
3. Goto File in the top left corner
4. Select Save Page as
5. Save it anywhere you want
6. Connect your PSP to your USB, and enter USB mode with it
7. Read the following/download the converter
For flash/java games, read the following:
