PSP can't read UMD movies

I bought my PSP in Asia,and when i bought my UMD movies in North America,my PSP can't read the UMD discs most likely because of the (different) region compatibility issue.is there a way around this so that i could watch the aforesaid UMD movies on my PSP?

Check first that you are using version 3.71 which i image you are if you bought in asia ( main menu system information)
regardles of wheter you are on this version or not i'm damm sure is not a sony release of the firmware you bough in asia :-)

shut down PSP hold power button 4 - 10 seconds or until light goes out.


restart PSP holding down R button to access recovery mode.
go to configuration,
check fake regioon currently disabled. and free umd region currently dissabled ( use x button to enter sub menus and toggle possible options)

Why UMD video not work in my psp?


I don't think it is posible to fix this problem. The region code is like the one they put on DVD's to stop piracy. So if i bought the UMD in America I couln't play it on a PSP bought in Asia.Hope this helps.

- Your UMD drive tray may be bent.
- There may be a foreign object in your UMD drive

PSP umd region code


yes, try changing region to region 1 as it is possible the umd (disk you bought) is designed not to run unless the region matches. you'll probably have to change it again if you want to read disks from different regions.
my kids have the psps on their holidays at the moment back tomorrow, i will check the restore menus tomorrow for you and see if there is any other changes possibley needed,
also it is worth a try but try changing xmd to umd disk ( eventhough this is for access to memeory usually for usb connection, although it could be something to do with ver 3.71) note youl have to change it back to enter usb mode from your computer.
is yours the PSP slim version or standard version, ?

Hey buddy FORMAT DISC means PAL games or NTSC games format.

There are 2 formats dics in this world for the PS1,PS2,PSP,Wii,Gamecube.etc

They are [NTSC] and [PAL]

[NTSC] is for North America and Japan ONLY. [NTSC] is Original games.

[PAL] is for Asia Only. Which is copied games form the Originals.

I need to know were did you bought PS2 Console from ?

If you bought it in North America or Japan then you have to buy and play Original games from North America Only.

If you bought your PS2 in Asia then you can play copied games.

It is most likely your PS2 is a NTSC, your PS2 cant read any PAL games so it will say format dics.
