The only way that I know of is to dismantle the PSP or send it in for repair. Taking the PSP apart is a very long process and although it is reasonably easy, the screws can easily be lost and it is easy to forget where everything goes when putting it back together. I would reccomend putting a small screwdriver in the card slot to find out if there is something stuck in it but you cannot tell what you are doing and the contacts for the memory stick are quite fragile and you could easily damage them.

If you are prepared to take the PSP apart then post a comment and I can guide you throught the process.

Hope this helps

Please click the link below to be taken to the official Playstation PSP / PSPGo memory stick center. It will show you where the memory card goes on their devices.

Once you find out where the memory stick is on your son's system, I would take it out and reinsert it several times. This has happened to me before and I had to remove/reinsert a few times for it to "find the right position". As a last resort, I would format the memory card and see if that helps. The steps to format on on that link as well. Worst case scenario is the memory stick has gone bad, but you can pick up a replacement for under $10.00 US. Hope this helps.

V just got PSP3006 for our 7yr old son. Since I have no knowledge about PSP games, thought upgrading the latest version 5.5 will help the PSP to play better. Unfortunately, v r not able to use the memory...


take the psp 3006 to games store and tell them to put it back in cfw then you can play games by putting them in memory stick and i donot you can do the downgrading yourself because it is a little complex not like the 2000 model and 1000 model where you should just have an pandora battery and magic memory stick and you can do it in your own home but do it in your own risk, its not like that for 3000 model sony have completely changed the concept

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.
