Hi. Since you're in UMD Autoload mode, you need to configure that in the PSP Settings. To do this, turn off your PSP and remove your UMD. Now, turn it back on and it won't autoload your UMD since it wasn't there anymore.
Now, go to "Settings" and scroll down to "System Settings" and press X. Scroll down again the selection until you see "UMD Auto-Start" and press X. At the right side will appear the options "ON" and "OFF". Select "OFF" and press O button several times to go back to main screen.
Insert your UMD. Now, try playing games from Memory Stick. You may have to turn off your PSP and turn it on again to finally play homebrew...
I hope this helps...

Disks wont read


First try cleaning the lens. Mine got dust on it, and it stopped reading UMDs.

A little rubbing alcohol and a q tip and it might work.

use 70% alcohol to clean the lens. Use that stick that you clean your ears with. And use not to mush alcohol. Let the lens dry for 10 minutes and try to play a UMD disk again.

If that doesn't work and still under warranty just send it in and they'll fix it for you :) Good luck!

My psp won't load umd's and all i hear is a scrathing sound


The UMD laser might be dirty or broken. Open up the UMD drive and give the laser a clean with a lint-free cloth. Then pop the disk back in and try again. If that doesn't work, you will need to get the PSP repaired or buy a replacement laser and do it yourself.

Hi Glenpark, Eithr the UMD or UMD laser is dirty.  If it will play other UMD's the UMD is dirty.  I think Gamestop has a device that helps broken and dirty UMD's.  If it will not play any UMD, then you have a problem with your UMD laser.  You can try to clean your laser lens.  Use a Q-tip.  Dampen, not soak,  a Q-tip with a window cleaner. NOT Alcohol. Swab the lens thoroughly with the cleaner, then use the dry Q-tip to dry and polish the laser. Try hard to not leave any lint.

If you UMD still does not function, you need to send it back to SONY. Contact them at 1-800-345-7669.  If you cant get them to fix it Contact The Playstation Clnic at Repairtech@Playstationclinic.com

is it a scratching scrapping noise?

as some UMD cases, as in the plastic thing around the disc colapse or come apart this stops the disc spinning properly.

Check the plastic on the UMD... click any sides together that may be loose / or make sure the case isnt pushing on the disc.

Also open the PSP, hold it upside, gently shake it & blow into it.

Put the UMD back in & try again.

My UMD icon dont appear when i put a game on it


I think the lens might have died permanantely, or maybe just it's temporary. I've also had the same problem, and one time I turned it on, it started working again. Wait about a day and see if it still happens.
