Unfortunately, Sony makes specific games for specific regions and/or continents. You cannot change the region of your psp unless you have what hackers call "Custom Firmware abbrev. CFW". Once you have successfully gotten custom firmware on your psp you can do all sorts of things that sony doesnt let you do with an official firmware. If you do not know how to get Custom Firmware on your psp, i took the freedom to make a guide just for you, complete with step-by-step instructions. the guide can be found here: http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/708959.

Just put custom firmware on it It will over ride any region to code to let you play any psp game or watch and umd movies. It also let you play games from your memory stick.

Depending on what country your system is made in it will have a certain region code. Most movies are also region coded and if those region codes do not match then you cannot play that movie. You cannot change the region code on any system unless it is opened up and modified

Region codes


PSP is a region free device that it is capable of playing media purchased anywhere in the world. However, the decision to make games and movies region specific is made by the publisher of each title and as a result some Universal Media Discs may not work on a PSP purchased in a different country.
Please ensure that you check each piece of software and UMD films for compatibility with your PSP before purchase.

PSP umd region code


yes, try changing region to region 1 as it is possible the umd (disk you bought) is designed not to run unless the region matches. you'll probably have to change it again if you want to read disks from different regions.
my kids have the psps on their holidays at the moment back tomorrow, i will check the restore menus tomorrow for you and see if there is any other changes possibley needed,
also it is worth a try but try changing xmd to umd disk ( eventhough this is for access to memeory usually for usb connection, although it could be something to do with ver 3.71) note youl have to change it back to enter usb mode from your computer.
is yours the PSP slim version or standard version, ?
