    Can anyone walk my son thru a quick fix to determine what may be wrong with his psp?

    Thank you, I know that at one time it was dropped but from a short distances, and it showed no problems until recently. But again thanks for responding.

Your son probably dropped his PSP at the time and the UMD drive broke or if your son says he didnt drop it you can get a cutip and softly clean your UMD reader the little bubble sorta in your PSP be carful while doing that

My PSP won't read the UMD's


that's odd, this has happened to me in a similiar way, except for me my PSP would keep saying "Do you want to exit the game?" For you two, i would recommend examining the discs and make sure they're not scratched too much. Also examine the inside of your PSP where you insert the UMD, is there a loose or broken piece. In my opinion, much like my PS2, the games get too scratched (despite being in that case) to function and will stop being real altogether, although i am still trying to figure out why all games stop working...
Hope this helped in any way

Psp won't read games


If you can't read ISO/CSO Files, that either means that you didn't download correctly or that you didn't place them in the ISO folder of your memory stick. If you can't play UMD games and you have custom firmware, make sure "execute boot.bin" and plain modules" are disabled under the recovery menu. If you have official firmware, you can't play ISO/CSO games unless you have Devhook. If you have official firmware and you can't read UMD games, then it's probably your lens.

If this is the case, you have a faulty Or weak laser unit or the UMD Drive is faulty.
