Well it sound like a umd laser reader failure. You can replace the umd drive in the psp, it's not very dificult. You can see in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yct1T-g7w9I how to do it. Also there are on ebay a lot of seller who sell the umd reader for around 20$. http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-Reader-UMD-Laser-Lens-Repair-Part-FIT-PSP-1000-/220640911081?pt=Video_Games_Accessories&hash=item335f391ee9 .

Psp always read from umd,making it hang


Hi! I incounter this problem as well even without UMD its still loading and even I disable auto-start UMD still same so I tried reflashing the software but still same problem so I discover the solution before you turn-on your PSP try to open your UMD cover you'll see it will load faster then close again the cover once you see the battery and clock icon... The problem that causing this is the switch inside the UMD possible its stock-up or spoiled already!

- Your UMD motor may be malfunctioning.
- Your laser may have worn down from use over time.
- Your UMD drive tray may be bent.
- There may be a foreign object in your UMD drive


Common symptoms

* extremely slow loading
* strange whirring noise when trying to read disks

Loud Clicking noise and won't read UMD


I think the it is possible your UMD case is cracked and the clear part is pressing down on the disc inside. Check and pull the clear part of the case from the media disc.
