This can be caused by one of only two primary reasons.
First of all, you have to ensure that the UMD you are trying to play is clean and free from scratches or glitches. If there are any of such things on the disc, it cold prevent the lens from reading the disc and so the display would keep showing the loading icon(small circular icon in the bottom right corner) until it eventually brings up a message saying it could not be read. If you have any of these on your disc, it is advisable you do away with the disc or you can follow the instruction below on how to clean the disc.
1. Get a magnet and attach it to the center of the case,
2. Use a soft material that has some rubbing alcohol like methylated spirit on it. (make sure its not soaked).
3. Put the material on the open quarter and use the magnet to spin the disc in a circular way while using the wet part of the material to clean the part currently on the open quarter.
secondly, you could have a problem with your game laser and so need to clean it. You can clean it by doing what is written below.
1. wetting an ear wax cleaner and opening your UMD drive and using the wet moist cleaner to clean the surface of the lens. Also make sure it is not soaked.

If any of the above solution does not work for you, you might be having a very serious issue and might need to contact Sony or a repairer.
Hope this was helpful?

My psp isnt playing a brand new game. it wont load the umd. the umd is pretty clean. i wait for it to load and it wont.


Below where the UMD game appears on screen try the button below that should say 'Update PSP'. The game could have an update for the PSP and won't play without it. If this doesn't work contact Sony Website Forums and see if anybody there has had the problem.

Help!


You might have PSP stop reading UMD discs, First you will do some trouble shooting with what might be wrong with your PSP unit.

first is the Disc Spinning motor. This will not let The disc in the UMD spin. On a working PSP you will hear the disc start to spin up, then you can hear the laser start to twitch, followed by the laser motor moving the laser down the rails.

2nd is something stuck in the UMD gear, try to clean the gear of arm of dust, plastic, soda, and even hair.

and at the last is the actual laser itself. It will not focus the laser to read the UMD disc.

Hopefully this help, Pls post back should you need additional information...!

Psp-lazer ain't reading the games


This link should help.

  • Make sure the UMD is properly inserted with the label facing the back of the PSP system. Try removing the UMD and reinserting it.
  • Try playing the UMD on a different PSP system. If the UMD plays, the original PSP system may be the problem. If the UMD does not play, the problem may be isolated to the UMD itself.
  • 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.
  • Make sure the exposed UMD surface and plastic casing is not damaged[2]. Do not use if plastic casing is cracked, collapsed, or if foreign materials have entered inside the UMD enclosure.
