The problem isnt your firmware its your umd reader inside your umd drive you or somone probably dropped your psp and damaged it so the psp can no longer read UMD's either get a new psp or replace your UMD drive thats all that can be done

My son psp beep when you put a game in and the umd does not come up can you help please


f you are experiencing issues when using a Universal Media Disc (UMD™) on the PSP system, try these troubleshooting options:

  • Issues with PlayStation®Store content Click here for help with content purchased from the PlayStation Store.
  • Restore Default Settings Restore Default settings will default the PSP system to its original settings. A setting change may be the reason the PSP system is having difficulties. Click here to learn how to restore default settings on the PSPgo / PSP system.
  • Confirm UMD is properly inserted

    Make sure the UMD is properly inserted with the label facing the back of the PSP system. Try removing the UMD and reinserting it.
    Please note, it is normal for the PSP system to make noises while it is reading from a UMD.

    For PSP-1001, slide the latch to open the UMD door. For the PSP-2001 and PSP-3001, simply lift the door open.

  • Try playing the UMD on a different PSP system If possible, try playing the UMD on a different PSP system. If the disc still does not function properly, it might need to be replaced. If the disc does function properly, the PSP system may need service, see PSP Service for details.
  • Try playing a different UMD on the PSP system If possible, try playing a different UMD on the PSP system. If another UMD plays, the original UMD may be the problem. If none of the UMD's play, the problem may be isolated to the PSP system.
  • Check for moisture Do not let the PSP system or any PSP® accessories come in contact with liquid. Also check for moisture condensation in the PSP system. If moisture condensation occurs, remove the disc from the PSP and do not use the PSP until the condensation has evaporated, which can take an hour or two. In general, if any part of the PSP gets wet, discontinue use until it is completely dry.
  • Check the regional code Check the regional code on the UMD™ Video. The only regional codes that the North American PSP® is tested to work properly with are "ALL" and "1.
    "
Tried these steps and still need help?

If you have tried the troubleshooting information above, but continue to experience problems, please contact our Consumer Services department to have your PSP system serviced.

When i try to run a iso/cso game, the white psp would shoe up and then the screen truns black went back to the psp menu and it said Game could not start 80020148 my psp's system software is 5.00 M33-4


What you need to do is disable the umd from within the custom firmware menu. Completely turn off the PSP (hold the power button up until it turns off). Then while holding the right shoulder button, turn the PSP on. The recovery menu will load. Select configuration and then disable the "no umd" option. Exit from the recovery menu and insert a umd disc into the PSP. Make sure auto start is also disabled in the PSP menu settings. You should now be able to run your game.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa

My sons psp game menu is not showing the umd option what is wrong with it cheers


If memory serves (I lost my PSP while moving) the UMD menu only appears when a UMD is inserted and recognized. If a UMD is inserted but the menu does not come up then either the UMD is bad or the laser is defective.

PSP saving game


First to have games on your psp you have to have a program on your psp called umd dumper. you can find it on google by typing umd dumper and clicking on the first choice that comes up and then dowloading it.( before you continue here you must make sure your psp is downgraded, atleast vesion 3.11 or lower thats what i have. go to the file where you saved your download, double click and extract all the files from it. now connect your psp to your computer. now go to your downloaded folder and find two folder called umd dumper %%%%, copy and paste those to files on your psp that is still connected to your computer on a file called psp. now diconnect your psp and go to your game section on your psp and click on memorystick you might find two folders, umd dumper and corrupter file or just umd dumper, dont pay attention to the corrupted file. put a game in your psp and click the umd dumper, it will automatically start extracting files from your umd and put it on your memory stick ( make sure you have enough space on your memory stick depending on the game) after its done now connect the psp back to the computer and this time you will notice a new file with a umd picture on your folder, drag the umd folder and drop it in a folder called ISO, if you dont have a folder called ISO look on the internet on how you can get on on your psp. now when you are done diconnect it and go to your games section and on your memory stick you will have the game you just extracted. click on it and enjoy your game onyour memory stick..( if this information is not accurate enough you can go to, youtube.com and type umd dumper and watch some of the videos on there one of them might give you a better understanding)

Psp umd problems


Clean the lasers lens with Glass Cleaner and a cotton swab. Do not use Alcohol, it will damage the lens. Also, I know they have UMD disc cleaner on Ebay. Another thing is to open the Internet explorer and click on the toolbox and delete cookies and offline files. This also may free up memory.

Psp not saving or loading


Hi Spazza2,

Did yout try using the same UMD game your brother was using and see if the game format has anything to do with it?  Since you upgraded, the UMD game may be old, and might not work with Version 3.71. It sounds like your PSP is working just  fine other than that.

My UMD icon dont appear when i put a game on it


I think the lens might have died permanantely, or maybe just it's temporary. I've also had the same problem, and one time I turned it on, it started working again. Wait about a day and see if it still happens.
