Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

Open Question

Modded PSP stuck on "Please Wait..."

Every time I try to disconnect my PSP from a PC it gets stuck on "Please Wait...", and so I have to Press O to Cancel. Then, when I browse my Memory Stick from the XMB, under the Game menu there are hundreds of Corrupted files instead of a single ISO. (By the way, my PSP is modded and I'm copying ISOs to my Memory Stick) Then when I turn it on again it says "The Memory Stick could not be read. Please format the Memory Stick"
This is really annoying because I had almost finished Assassin's Creed :(

SOURCE: my psp could not read the game folder on the memory stick

Your psp must be custom firmwared for you to be able to play games from the ISO folder, to custom firmware it, it must have a pandora battery and the files required. You can buy pandoras batterys and a magic memory stick off ebay for a reasonable price.  Hope this helps

SOURCE: PS2 Modded Trouble Reading DVDr's

Your DVD potentiometer pot on the back of the PS2 laser lens needs to be readjusted. Some people will try to tell you it's out of alignment but if that was the case it would not read CD's. Some people will try to tell you the laser lens is bad. If that was the case it would not read CD's. On the back of the laser lens are two potentiometer pots. In english? Two lil screws that are turnable. One controls the power of the DVD laser one controls the power of the CD laser.

http://www.cyber-mag.com/station/laserV9.htm

That link will give you pretty lil pictures of what i'm talking about :)

In a nut shell the story goes like this folks. If your PS2 won't read certain game DVD's that are of a certain color or if it all of a sudden mysteriously fails to read games it once read but will play cd's just fine, the voltage of the laser for DVD's is not set correctly. (this does needs manual tweeking from time to time if you take your ps2 and move it around alot or if you take it over to friends houses etc etc. Basicly alot of movment in general can take this out of alignment. Even keeping the PS2 on it's side could theoreticly (just my opinion) based on gravitational pull, unbalance the potentiometer.

RESOLUTION:

Step 1 identify your PS2 version:


Version 1 - SCPH-30001, 10 screws on bottom of case, serial no. starts with "U1"
Version 2 - SCPH-30001, 10 screws on bottom of case, serial no. starts with "U0"
Version 3 - SCPH-30001, 10 screws on bottom of case, serial no. starts with "U2"
Version 4 - SCPH-30000, 30001, 35001, 30002, 35002, 30003, 35003, 30004, or 35004, 8 screws on bottom of case

NOTE: Version 4 has 2 varieties of motherboard: Gap/No Gap, the difference between v4 "Gap" and v4 "No Gap" is the "Gap" is there's a spot in the center of bios chip where each side lacks solder points.

Version 5 - SCPH-30000R, 30001R, 30002R, 30003R, 30004R, or 30006R. Also, some SCPH-30000, 30001, 30002, 30003, and 30004 models have a V5/V6

NOTE: Version 5 & 6 - the difference between these two versions is one of the connectors in the corner.

Version 7 - SCPH-39000, 39001, 39002, 39003, 39004, 39008 or 37000
Version 8 - Only in Japanese consoles. SCPH-39000, or, SCPH-39006 (GH-022 BIOS 090)
Version 9 - if you have SCPH-50000, 50001, 50002, 50003, 50004, 50006, or 50007 you have a v9 or v10 board.
Version 10 - SCPH-5000x, with date code "3D" to the right and below the serial number on the back of the console. (GH-026 board)

NOTE: To know if its a v9/v10 start up PS2 with no game in it ,press triangle and check dvd driver version dvd ver 3.00 = v9 & dvd ver 3.02 = v10.

If your model # is SCPH-50000, 50001, 50002, 50003 or 50004 AND if you can find a small ''a'' under the SCPH number or have DATECODE "3C" you have a V9 PS2 main board. (GH-026 board).

If your model # is SCPH-50000, 50001, 50002, 50003 or 50004 AND if you can find DATE CODE "3D" as shown below, you have a V10 PS2 main board. (GH-026 board).

Version 12 - The new slimline PS2 consoles are referred to as PSTwo here, but elsewhere they are also known as "v12" units... their numbers are SCPH-70011/SCPH-70012, and also SCPH-70004 CB (Belgium).

Step 2 use either google or the link above. If you're using google your keyword search will be something like "ps2 v12 laser lens adjustment" *replace v12 with your ps2 model.

In either case navigate to the site and follow instructions to set the pots back to their factory default settings.

SOURCE: missing ISO folder

The thing is, the ISO folder doesn't come with your PSP Memory Stick. However, the best solution would be to make the folder! Just keep in mind that the name of the folder have to be in all CAPITAL letters. The ISO folder goes in the root of your memory stick.

I want to downgrade my psp 3000 version 6.35 to 5.03 so i can hack it


Not possible at this time. A PSP-300x can be modded yes, but only with a version 5.03 or lower OFW. Any attempt to downgrade using HEN or Pandora will result in a brick in this type of system. And just for the record, this is a "softmod," not a "hack." Learn your terminology, you'll have a much easier time understanding the process. The only thing I can suggest to you is to either wait a year (which is about the time it will take to complete the firmware workaround, assuming the project isnt abandoned), buy a PSP-200x or 100x and install the CFW yourself using the recommended methods, or find one that is pre-modded on Ebay, Craigslist, etc...

My psp 2000 slim is not registering the battery pack, and the only thing that happens when i plug the psp in to the AC Adaptor is that i get one orange light.


ok It sounds like
A/ you have a pandora battery
B/ have you tryed to mod it in any way ?
C/ have you got a magic memery stick in your psp
D/ what firmware you on

A/ when you just have the battery in it is ther a green power light on ?
if so then you have a pandora battery.
If you know some one with a modded psp and they could posabley sort your battery out with there psp.


When you mod ( hack ) a psp there is a chance you can brick it so it dont work any more.
there are ways to bring it back you may have to find some one with a modded ( working ) psp to sort out your memery stick.

C/ if you have a magic memery stick in your psp then it will not run the same as normal cos of the files on the stick

D/ what firmware is it on if its like mine im on cfw 5.50-gen-d then yours ia hacked there are also M33-?
they are also showing you that it's modded

so all in all
try your battery in another psp and try there battery in your psp take out and memery sticks and games

Psp 300 doesn,t show the usb mode when connected to PC.It keeps showing Please wait .No problem with usb cable,port.


Hi rimoricky, Based onyour concern, I suggest trying the following steps: 1. Before you plug it in make sure the PSPis in USB connect mode. -->Also make sure the Memory Stick PRO Duo has been formatted for PSP. If it's notthis is how you do it: On themain menu, scroll all the way left to the "Settings" menu. Thenselect "System Settings." Then scroll to "Format MemoryStick" and press X. 2. Connect the PSP to your PC with a USBcable. 3. Press the "home" button on thePSP --> atthe lower left of the screen you can see the home button. 4. Use the left-right directional buttons tofind "Settings", then the up-down buttons to find "USBConnection" on the PSP. 5. Press the "X" button, your PSPshould display "USB Connection". 6. Please wait until your computer tells youthat a new USB device has been connected, then show you a new generic harddrive, usually E: or F: 7. Click on the drive letter thatcorresponds to the PSP unit. Hope ithelps, Thank youfor using FixYa.

Psp download


yeah, if your PSP is not Modded and it is running on official firmware of SONY, then you should prolly have it modded or have it made into custom firmware...If you don't know how to check the what firmware version your PSP is running...then here is how:
open your PSP, then on the XMB, got SYSTEM SETTINGS then to SYSTEM information. on the top it says SYSTEM SOFTWARE, then check if your firmware version has a m33 suffix...if it doesnt have an m33 at the end, then it is an OFFICIAL firmware so have it modded, my friend...
