No, to play a game you do not need to have a memory stick inside the PSP. However, you will need one to save you place in a game or download games.

There is also a version of the PSP that has 16 gigs of internal memory.

In saved data utility, appears there is no memory stick inserted but it has. i cannot play my games because of the problem.


Hi.
Looks like a broken memory stick!

  • Try another memory stick, if it works or open your memory stick in any computer just to check if it is still working.
  • Open the mem stick in your PSP to check also if it is being read, if not, clean the gold contact points, and try it again in your PSP.
  • If the mem stick can be read by your PSP, that means the program is already corrupted and you have to format it.
  • If it still not working the problem is the mem stick is now broken

Hope that helps you out!

Hi My PSP's orange ligth won't turn off just always lightning when turn on my psp it's lightning with green light


Hi khangal74,
If you dont have issues playing your usual psp games, you dont have to worry about the orange light. That is normal. It means that your PSP is saving the data to your memory stick. Also make sure that your WLan switch is turned off ( that also causes a blinking orange light ). However, if you are experiencing a flickering orange light and your screen remains black ( and you cannot play any games), it means that your PSP is having issues reading you memory card.
Do these:
Remove the memory card and turn your PSP on without the memory card (it should turn on with no problems) Now, slowly re-insert your Memory stick. (You may need to do this several times until your PSP recognizes your memory card) If this still does not work, your Memory stick is busted or may be infected with a virus and therefore needs to be replaced.
Wishing you with positive results. All the best to you.

No source will read my memory stick pro duo mark 2


  1. Try re-formatting your memory stick from your PSP console. A memory stick that is formatted from a PC or other hand held console sometimes cause incompatibility problem with the PSP.
  2. If your PSP still can not read the memory stick, try checking your memory stick by using your friends PSP and see if they can access the memory stick.
  3. If the memory stick can be accessed by your friends PSP then there is a problem with the memory slot of your PSP.
  4. The only way to check the contacts of the memory slot of your PSP is to disassemble you PSP and take out the mother board.

Memory stick duo won't read!


You probably need a new memory stick module inside the PSP. I have seen this many times in my store and we replaced the board and it worked fine. Contact your local game stores to see if they do console repairs. See if there is a Play-N-Trade within your area. I work at one and we do repairs. I'm not sure if Gamestop or Gamecrazy do repairs.

PSP won't recognize the games on memory stick


Earlier Your PSP was installed with Custom Firmware. Thats why you were able to play Backup ISO's from Memory Stick. You have now updated your firmware to Original SONY firmware  and SONY wont allow you to run Backup ISO's from Memory Stick.
If you want to play Backup ISO's again you need to install Custom Firmware
