Error 80010087


Check the firmware of your PSP. Some games may not work if the latest firmware is not installed.

You usually get this message if the UMD has errors reading or the UMD is not present or was ejected in the middle of playing a game. You should try testing your PSP with other disks, if it doesn't have the same problem with other disks then your UMD is most likely scratched or damaged.

If you are using a modded PSP then you will get this error if you load a game from the memory stick without having a disk inserted in the drive. Or if the game that you are trying to load requires a higher firmware version. You will need to install a higher modded firmware to fix the error if that is your case.

Hope this helps.

Psp won't load umd games


The UMD drive is bad, you can either look around for a replacement drive if you know how to take apart your PSP to replace the drive or just get a new PSP.

Cannot load umd games


If you have custom firmware, make sure your "execute boot.bin" and "plain modules" are both disabled under your advanced configuration settings of the recovery menu. Also, make sure your ISO/CSO games are saved in the ISO Folder of your memory stick and that your UMD MODE is set to NO UMD REQUIRED. Your PBP Games should be saved in your PSP/GAME Folder.

Psp error # 80010087 The game can not be started


Hi robbimic,

The first thing to check is the firmware of your PSP. You should make sure that your PSP has the latest firmware loaded. Because some games will not work or load up if the latest firmware is not installed or loaded up.
You usually get this error message 80010087 if the UMD drive has errors reading the UMD disc or otherwise the disc is not present or was ejected while in the middle of playing a game or loading a movie. I suggest that you try to testing to see if the problem happens with other UMD discs, if it doesn't then most likely the disc could be damaged or scratched.

Now if you are using a modded PSP then you will get this error if you load a game from the memory stick without having any UMD disc inserted in the drive. Or if the game that you are trying to load requires a higher firmware version installed into the PSP. You will be required to flash a higher modded firmware to fix this error if this is your case.

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)
