did you have cfw (custom firm ware) on your psp that allowed you to play downloaded games from other sites other than psn. if so what you did was to overwrite the cfw and installed the ofw (official firm ware). sony releases ofw to cut down on piracy. so if this is your case you may want to look on youtube on "psp cfw" there are alot of videos on it and it should get you up and running again. if you ever get cfw installed on your psp again DO NOT UPGRADE WITH SONY OFFICIAL FIRM WARE OR YOU'LL HAVE TO REDO THE CFW
do you have custom firm ware. if not try cleaning laser with qtip & alcohol if still a problem try updating firm ware still not working needs servicing either drive is bad or firm ware has a bad sector
its because the psp version where change that's why the psp stops working on games only psp version's with m33 can play download games and other might depend on your umd games...so i suggest that you downgrade your psp to the original version of the psp that you have so your son can play the games that he want. hope it helped.. send me a message for more concerns...ty
