It may be a temporary glitch.try to do it several times and if it's really showing consistently the same glitch,then there might be either a disc game or psp hardware problem.try to play other disc games on your psp console,if you don't encounter any problems,your psp console may be out of the woods.or use your nba 08 disc on other working psp consoles and see how it goes...if you encounter the same glitch,most likely,the disc is defective.i assume you have an official firmware on your psp.hope this helps.

How do i put music from my p c to my psp


To play mp3 on your PSP, you'll need
  • A big enough memory stick duo. The 32 Mb that comes with your psp will only fit a few songs. To really make it practical, i recommend that you try and find 1G memory stick. If you look hard enough, you'll be able to find one for about 0
  • You'll also need a Mini-USB (USB A to USB Mini-B) cable or a memory stick card reader to access your memory stick from your pc.
1. Connect to your memory stick
If you are using memory card reader I assume you already know how to do this. If you are using USB cable, simply connect the cable to your PSP and Windows will detect it as a new drive.
2. Copy your music into the folder named "MUSIC" inside the "PSP" folder.
In the memory stick, there should already be a folder called "PSP", if there aren't any, you haven't been playing any games! Inside the PSP folder, find a folder named "MUSIC". If it is not there, don't worry, simply create a new one.

Now, simply copy your mp3 songs into this "Music" folder and you're done. You can also create folders inside the "MUSIC" folder and put your songs there.

Mp3 Playback Tips

  • To save battery, you can turn of the screen by holding the brightness toggle button for more than 1 second.
  • Press the triangle button to view other options such as repeat mode and the built-in help.

PSP not loading game


Hi,

I guess you must have updated your psp to more recent version while you were online. This i guess is one of the reasons why your psp games on your memory card is not showing on the screen.

You'll need to check the version your psp is running at the moment by going to System Setting > System Information, and you'll see the version that your psp is sunning on. Most versions above Version 5 might not play games on your memory card. You'll have to use umd's to play games.

CANT OPEN MY PSP AFTER FORMATING IT...


My suggestion is:
1. Format the memory with computer. Make sure it's FAT, not NTFS or FAT32.
2. Move the card into your psp and format it again.
3. Make sure it's shown 4gb from your psp.
4. Put your games into the memory stick.

If all steps above do not work it's probably a card reader related issue. Btw are you using a card reader or direct psp-pc usb connection?

Is psp2004pb can play games in memory stick?


psp can only play games using the UMD drive, you can only play game demos using the memory stick.
Upgrade your psp firmware version to 5.00, it adds playstation store to the psp where you can buy and download full games onto your psp, all you need to do is create an account using the playstation store on your psp if you upgrade it to 5.00.

Use this link to help you upgrade you psp to 5.00

don't forget to download psp media manager 3.00 on your pc.
use this link for psp media manager.

I cant play games from memory


Hi kalfan

What happened was that when you downgraded your PSP to -play game from your memory stick, that version was loaded onto your PSP for a reason. What you did now is install the latest firmware and that disabled you from playing games from your memory stick. You might have to get your PSP downgraded again with the older firmware version.
