The memory card of your PSP needs to be checked. Since you can't save data andgame on it, it's showing that the memory is not properly connected, intact orworst case defective. You can still diagnose the problem by doing these steps:
1. Turn off the PSP.
2. Now take the memory stick out then check if pins are clean.
3. If it continues not to work after checking the pin, try to check the memorycard using your PC. You can simply open the card via card reader.
4. If your PC cannot detect the memory card, it means that the memory card isnow defective. Now it's time for you to buy a new memory card.
Try a "Reformat" or your memory card. here's how.
I recommend that you do this every so often regardless, and particularly when you first buy a memory stick. Reformat it, on the Sony PSP. So that anything added by the memory stick manufacturer is removed, along with any hidden files you might have accidentally added. You can format any size Memory Stick Duo in the Sony PSP by doing this:
Push the little HOME button on the bottom left of the face of the unit.
Use the arrow keys to move to the SETTINGS area, then move the up and down keys until you get to System Settings.
Once you are there, click on the "X" button and scroll up and down as needed to find Format Memory Stick. Click on "X" again to select that option.
The Sony PSP will now confirm that you want to reformat the memory stick (which removes every file and game save thereon, of course): choose yes and it'll format in just a few seconds.
Now you have a pristine new Memory Stick to work with and should have no problems with music, photos or other material you might wish to copy onto your PSP.
usually this happens when the save data is corrupted. and this could happen because that certain spot on your memory stick is corrupted. what i mean by this is that all of your other save files, music, and videos you have on your memory stick might work just fine but a few save files might not load... this is because sometimes the whole memory stick don't go bad just some small sector. depending on how you look at it if a tiny bit of your 8 gig card is bad you could say the whole thing is bad since u won't know exactly which area
My suggestion is: 1. Format the memory with computer. Make sure it's FAT, not NTFS or FAT32. 2. Move the card into your psp and format it again. 3. Make sure it's shown 4gb from your psp. 4. Put your games into the memory stick.
If all steps above do not work it's probably a card reader related issue. Btw are you using a card reader or direct psp-pc usb connection?
Get the memory card out and save the games on memory via you computer. Connect the memory card via a memory stick to your computer and download the games into the memory from your pc. Take it out and put the memory card back into the psp.
This should help out and get the problem resolved.
I had the EXACT same problem....it would go no further that that looking for memory card screen....apparently the game will not accept that big of card....install the standard 128 or 256 mb card and the game will run normally...it worked for me...Good Luck :)
I have had this problem numerous times. It's a glitch in the game, best I can figure. It corrupts your saved game. You might be able to go back to an earlier save and play from there. But the best solution, if that doesn't work, is to take out the game disc, turn on the ps2, click on Browse (with your memory card plugged in) and delete the Vice City file(s) on there. Then put your disc back in and start over from the beginning. It sucks, I know. I've had to do it. And once I was almost to a 100% completion. Bleh. =( Sorry.
