PSP Wont play games, and is going slow on other things! [HELP]

My psp wont play games, and when i try to go to videos or music, it takes a few seconds to load, but before it didnt. I have psp slim, the latest version updated. When i put the game in, it takes about 5 min, but still nothing happens just a small circle on the bottom right corner meaning its loading. After 5 min i get a message "The disc could not be read". Yes, i did drop it a few times and that may be the cause.
Truth is i took it out of my backpack and it stopped working, but the day before that it did. Wasnt in my backpack either, it was my dads he was playin but when i took it out it didnt work, pretty sure coz of a drop.
so yeah my vids and music takes long to load before i can play them, everything is going slow not just the game, can anyone help me fix it?
is there any way to fix it? i tried fixing it but nothing, nothing works.

its been like this for a month i havent played psp u hav no idea how much
it sucks especially coz i got a new game and just started it. :S

plzzz help! :D and thanks.

Hi,
you,ve damaged the UMD Drive, or Laser.
hence disk read errors.
you,ll have to obtain a replacement UMD Drive ( e-bay )
Or alternatively you could look into firmware flashing and pandoras Battery.
This way you can play games from a memory stick.

PSP can't read my memory stick and LAN light is flashing.


hi
is it just the one movie that wont play or have you tried music and game saves?
a few things to check
1 is the memory card showing magic gate supported
2 check if the card shows 15.?gb with nothing on it
3 try loading the card with 15gb of music and pictures

i bought a 16gb pro duo memory card from ebay that was a 4gb card showing in the psp as 15.4gb but corrupted every thing after 4gb.
if you also find that the card is only taking between 4-8gb of data contact ebay as this is likely a fake card.

My psp wont play video or music that i download to it.


Ok first off which format are you putting on psp for movies ,it only plays mp4 format for movies.For music it plays mp3's and to get it to play wmv's you have to set it to play them.For the movies get psp video 9 a freeware that converts movies to correct format and sends them to psp through usb cord.

My psp keeps turning off


this happened to me and i think it happens when you play your psp while its charging too much, i got littlebigplanet and i love the game too much. ive been playing it 24/7 (not really) but ever since i started playing it while it was charging, it would do this.

PSP won't play any games


the reason the umd wont load is because someone shut the psp off when the game was loading. so whoever did that just messed up your psp. i know cause someone did it to mine now i have to get it fixed or buy a new one. and to get the psp fixed its not guna be cheap.

Psp lags / delayed action


Are you running with custom firmware like M33 or HX?

If so, you can switch your psp off (not stand by), and hold R trigger when you switch it on, it should bring you to the recovery menu, where you can setup your XMB cpu speed and Game cpu speed, both set to default will be fine.
