PSP iso wont work 'the game could not be started.'

I used an iso from one of my UMDs but it wont play. the starting picure is displayed and ready, however when i try to access it, it says 'the game could not be started (80020148)' My current firmware (which is official) is 3.03 OE-C. i have tried many different settings in the recovery menu. it appears to be the same for some of my newer UMDs as well, the same error code is displyed for them

An OE-C firmware is not an official firmware, and is rather old. The fact that it has a recovery menu is another indication that it is not official. My bet is that since your firmware is so dated, it can't run some of your newer games. Update your firmware either to a more recent custom firmware or to the latest Sony official firmware (you won't be able to play your ISOs though).

How to install a game


There are two ways to install games on your Sony PSP (Play Station Portable).

The legit way is to buy original UMDs and insert them in your PSP and game on.

For the not-so-affluent, you can install Custom Firmware (CFW) on your PSP and thendownload games off the internet and copy them to your PSP and play them.
Play ISO / CSO Games on your PSP

-

1. Install Custom Firmware:

- There are scores of tutorials on the net on how to do this. The easier way out would be to go to any console shop, and get your PSP modded with CFW for around Rs. 200 / $5.

- A detailed tutorial on this coming up soon.

2. Download the Game ISO / CSO.

- Next, search for the game you want, and download the ISO / CSO of the game from torrent sites or any warez forums. Most of the times, the ISO / CSO is compressed into a RAR file so you will need to extract it first using WINRAR.

3. Copy the ISO / CSO to your PSP

- Connect the PSP to your computer using the data cable and goto Settings > USB Connection.

- Open your PSP drive in My Computer, and goto the ISO folder. If it isn't there already, create a new folder and rename it to ISO.

- Copy your ISO or CSO files to the ISO folder and disconnect your PSP from the computer.

4. Play the Game on your PSP

- Goto the GAME icon > Memory Stick and select the Game you just copied. Press 'X' and game on. icon_biggrin.gif

Note:
1. You need to have CFW (Custom Firmware) installed in order to use ISO / CSO games on your PSP. The latest version of CFW is 5.00 M33-4.
2. The latest PSP 2004 with TA 088 v3 chips and the PSP 3000 aren't moddable yet.

BIG HELP


is your PSP modified/CFW? if not it wont play cso or iso games. When u formatted your memory stick it will create ISO folder in the root of the memory stick. you said you created the folder, sounds to me that your not using CFW. this wont work.

If your using CFW/modified then format your memory stick using format option of your psp. Copy the cso/iso files to the ISO folder and that should work.

Used psp wont play games?


If the PSP that you bought is pre-owned... then..

..bring it back to 'Gamestop' & tell them truthfully that the PSP you bought doesn't play UMDs.

.. maybe there're problem's with the UMDs? Are they pre-owned?

If the PSP is brand new when you bought it, you can claim for FREE repairs, or perhaps a replacement from SONY! Mostly warrantys are just 1yr period, so you better 'do what you have to do' before Christmas!

When you insert a UMD into the PSP, then what happens? What appears on the screen?

- Do you hear the UMD drive spinning for quite awhile, but not loading up under the Game column?

?????

My psp umds or iso's arent working!!?


uhh your umd laser might be bad if it doesn't read at all. if it is bad then you might try buying a broken psp with a good laser. you have to be EXTREMELY careful replacing it though. my friend snapped his mother board, and if you do this, you are screwed.

PSP will not play games


What do you mean?

UMDs or Games saved in the Memory Stick?

If UMDs, your UMDs are scratched or the PSPs UMD Reader is damaged.

Games in Memory Stick, I don't know....

But if you play games and the PSP automatically enters the Home button, it's a virus. Fix it or Back up your PSP Files, and Reformat the Stick...
