Normally if a game has game share cababilities it has a menu for it within the game. The person without the game has to go to game share in the PSP OS, whilst the person with the game does it through the game.

Any data transfered to the non game PSP is deleted as soon as it's powered off, though. I've done it using Burnout Legends and believe me, the transfer process is not quick... but the game runs fine with no more slowdown than usual.

I am trying to gamesharing on my psp slim and fat.I have game in both of them but it says. searching for players please wait.... channel automatic. both wlan buttons are on but nothing is...

Hi ajisgood,
Make sure that you are in AD HOC mode. You can check this out by going to NETWORK SETTINGS (last icon on the left of your main menu).
If the game installed on both PSP's, you can also try using the Multiplayer mode inside the game. Select the game, then go to Multiplayer mode and then select HOST game. Do the same thing on the other PSP, but now choose SEARCH game instead of HOST. Of course, both wlan should be activated before doing this.
I hope everything works out. All the best to you.

Game sharing

In order to game share between two PSP's you need to obtain a game displaying the game sharing icon.

To share a game, first enable the Wi-Fi switch on the PSP you want to share the game from and on any PSP you want to share the game with.

Next, Browse to the game sharing option in the game you want to share and access the Game Sharing Icon on the other PSP(s) to search for the game.

When prompted, select the game available to share.

Finally, On the PSP that is sharing the game, accept the transfer and wait until the transfer is complete. Follow the instructions in the manual of the game to begin multi-player gaming.

I cant link 2 psp together in game share

First of all check that both PSP's have wireless turned on, beyond that you have given us no information to work from.
It helps us to help you if you provide information such as any error codes/error messages, what game are you trying to link, how far apart are your PSP's, have both PSP's been updated with the latest firmware and what you have done so far? The more information you give us the more chance there is of diagnosing the problem, just saying "i cant link 2 psp together in game share" tells us absolutely nothing about the specific problem you're having.

I dropped my psp and when i tryed connecting to the net or gamesharing, and it says " An Internal Error has occured. (80410A0B)

you have very limited options.
  • reset your settings.
  • try holding the WLAN switch up with your nail.
  • last resort: call sony and tell them that you just updated your version and it started showing this message,
Many people have this problem, but there are very little remedies.

Psp gamesharing trouble

If you have both PSP's are trying to search for a game, nothing will happen because there is no game to share from! On one PSP, insert a game that has multiplayer. (Some multiplayer games do not do game sharing.) Once you get the game up and in multiplayer mode, see if there is Gamesharing available. (Gamesharing is when only one PSP needs a game to function and sends the game temporally to the other PSP so they can play off of one game. Other games requier both PSP's to have the same game to be able to play.)
The loading process may take a while. I hope that helped. Some things are very hard to explain! 0.o Please ask if you have any questions! ^-^

Even the most exprienced psp technician won't figure out what's the problem if you just say "MY PSP IS NOT PLAYING GAMES WHAT THE PROBLEM". There are thousands of "not playing games" problems. Just think what if I reply you with "FIX IT TO PLAY GAMES' ? 



You have to scroll down a little bit, the umd icon is just underneath the gamesharing icon actually.
