Psp not reading game disk

Same problem like other people have, it froze, and after that would not read any of the game disks. Resetting the system did not help. What do I do now?

My PSP won't read the UMD's


that's odd, this has happened to me in a similiar way, except for me my PSP would keep saying "Do you want to exit the game?" For you two, i would recommend examining the discs and make sure they're not scratched too much. Also examine the inside of your PSP where you insert the UMD, is there a loose or broken piece. In my opinion, much like my PS2, the games get too scratched (despite being in that case) to function and will stop being real altogether, although i am still trying to figure out why all games stop working...
Hope this helped in any way

Psp problem


if it doesnt read the disk,you may want to open it up (but voiding the warranty) and clean the UMD drive.
if it doesnt read just one UMD,it might be the disk.
if cleaning the UMD drive doesnt work,you may have to get a new drive,or a new 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
