When you put the game in, there is a latch at the bottom the psp that when you put the game in, it tells the psp to load the game. When you put the game in, look and see if you see a silver latch that the game should push. If you see it, make sure the game is pushing down when inserted. If it is not there, or it still does not work, you will need to get it serviced at a game store or at a shop.
Yes, what you need to do here is to format first the memory stick , using the format option on your new PSP because the memory stick should be synch first to the new PSP and make sure that the firmware of the new PSP can play ISO and CSO games, so after you format the memory stick try to load the game back and hopefully the firmware of the new PSP is a custome firmware that can play those kind of games...
What is the name of the game that isn't loading? is the disk scratched? and do you plug your psp into your computer using usb? if so, if you unplug the psp withput stopping it on the windows desktop, it can sometimes corrupt or delete the data stored on the memory stick.
"tap" not hit.. the back of the psp, (where the game goes in on the back) and see if that works.. that will usually get the laser to read the disk.. perhaps the umd is dirty.. only tap on it "lightly" when you hear it loading.. i know that sounds stupid, but it worked for me countless of times.
