I also encountered this problem

The solution is just simple

Just format your Memory Stick using a computer (not in the psp system)

Set the allocation size to default

Try this:


1. Goto Recovery Menu (turn off then hold R and turn on)
2. Configuration -> Use NO-UMD (Disable it)
3. Go all the way back to main menu
4. Advanced -> Advanced Configuration -> (Disable all of them)

Error code on PSP

Your psp probably was hacked before and the idstorage was messed up. If you are luckly running on 1.5 firmware, you can run homebrew programs such as idstorage change and idstorage manager to fix the problem, then proceed to firmware update.
