I had the same problem with mine. All what you have to do is take the battery out of the PSP and let it sit for a couple hours or so. then put the battery back in and it should work.

Hmm there might be something wrong with the drive or the XMB software (read: firmware) which controls the PSP.

You can try updating the PSP to a more recent firmware (if possible) by using it's online update feature or by downloading it from the PlayStation website.

If that won't work I think it's an hardware defect and in that case you'll need to contact Sony PlayStation tech. support.

If you need help updating your PSP unit, let me know.

P.S. No need to type in caps, just sounds like you are screaming ;)


Greetings,

DarkNeogen.

How to download psp games into my pc


Hi there, I came across an article which explains how to transfer PSP Data to your PC.

---
CONNECT YOUR PSP TO PC
The PSP can function as a USB Memory Stick Duo reader. Using this functionality, you can copy pictures, audio, and other content to and from your Memory Stick Duo. To access the Memory Stick Duo in your PSP from your PC, you'll need a USB cable that has a "Mini-B" connector (common for digital cameras) and a "Standard-A" connector (common for printers, etc). Plug the Mini-B side into the top of your PSP and the Standard-A side into your PC. From the PSP software, navigate to the top of the settings list and select "USB Connection." Your PC (Windows/Mac/Linux) should detect a new "Removable Disk Drive" that you can then access.
FORMAT YOUR MEMORY STICK
In order to be able to use your new memory stick on your PSP, you'll have to format it. When you format your memory stick, the formatting will create a set of new folders on your PSP: GAME, MUSIC, PHOTO, and SAVEDATA.
EXTRACT THE SAVED GAME
This process will greatly depend on which software you use to extract zip files. WinRAR for instance offers the "extract here" option, which will simply extract the contents of a zip file to it's current directory.
TRANSFER SAVE GAME TO "SAVEDATA" FOLDER
Just copy the folder you have just extracted, and paste it into the PSP's "SAVEDATA" folder. But, BEWARE!, to any folder overwrite warnings! Because the PSP save game folders use the same names for the same games, copying folders into these locations could lead to lost data. For this reason, we recommend that you backup your old save games before overwriting them. For Example, I would simply rename a folder like "ULPS0004" to "ULPS0004_backup."
EXIT USB MODE
Because your PSP has been in USB Mode throughout this process, just push X to exit. Then you can safely disconnect your PSP from your PC.
VERIFY TRANSFER OF SAVE DATA
To verify the integrity of the SAVE GAME data you have just transferred, use the PSP's built-in Save Data Utility. Select it from the "Game" menu.

I upgraded my psp 2006 from 5.00 m33-6 to version 5.50. Now it does not detect the games saved in my memory stick. What should i do?


Are you trying to play the game from the memory stick? Or are you trying to play a game from the UMD and retrieve the saved game data from the memory stick?

5.00 m33 is a custom firmware that allows the PSP to play games stored on a memory stick. If you upgrade to 5.50, which is an original Sony firmware, that functionality will go away. If you have custom firmware, you should never upgrade it or the features like playing homebrew or loading games from a memory stick will go away.

You've cleaned the disks but have you cleaned the laser? That'd be the next step before looking @ repair options.
