Hey borot,

"Firmware" is another word for any pre-installed software that is necessary to operate an electronic device, like your PSP. Often manufacturers will release updates (also called "patches") to firmware, in an effort to solve problems that users may have encountered or to provide additional features and content for their products.

The first thing you'll need to do is establish an internet connection with your PSP in order to perform a firmware update. If you are unsure how to do so, you may wish to refer to your owner's manual documentation for further information.

Once an internet connection has been established, you will need to insert a memory stick into your PSP and connect the AC adaptor. Next, you should be able to select "Network Update" under the "Settings" option in the main dashboard menu. After you've chosen the "Settings" option, you will need to select which connection that you want to use. Available updates should automatically be detected once you've connected to the Playstation Network. You'll then need to follow the step-by-step instructions that appear on your screen to download and install the update files.

If you're still not sure how to proceed, I would strongly suggest checking out the link I've provided below to Sony's online support center.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

My psp cannot read downloadable games!!!!


Do you have a rock band unplugged .iso? If so, it has copyright protection, and deletes your game folder so that the games disappear. To stop this put anything into your GAME folder.

How to download games to psp


You need custom firmware to play downloaded games on a psp.

Google: PSP Custom Firmware

What version of PSP do you have?

That makes a big difference in your chances to put custom firmware on it.

Most people ask about playing downloaded games and dont even know they need a special firmware to run them, because of course sony does NOT support it.

Psp download


yeah, if your PSP is not Modded and it is running on official firmware of SONY, then you should prolly have it modded or have it made into custom firmware...If you don't know how to check the what firmware version your PSP is running...then here is how:
open your PSP, then on the XMB, got SYSTEM SETTINGS then to SYSTEM information. on the top it says SYSTEM SOFTWARE, then check if your firmware version has a m33 suffix...if it doesnt have an m33 at the end, then it is an OFFICIAL firmware so have it modded, my friend...
