If you switch off the power while on autosave, your data will corrupt and no longer exist and still show up. When you format it, the system will not detect the corrupted data. You need to visit a electronics repair cenre to fix it without having to manually format it so it deletes all. Manual formatting is a risk to your PSP's warranty. Good luck anyway.

Memory stick does not work

Connect the memory stick to your PC and format there. If it still fails, it's highly likely that your memory stick needs replacement

There are no games

1.)try to backup first the data in your memory card to your pc,
2.)after copying ,format your memorycard.
3.)then copy the backup files back to the memorycard{copy it folders by folders}

if still doesnt work the memorycard must be infected by a virus. to troubleshoot:
1.)try to rename the GAME folder to game1{if you cant rename it,rightclick the folder then click properties then uncheck the readonly attributes then click apply then OK.}
2.)after renaming the folder,then create a new folder and name it as GAME
3.)then copypaste the game to the newly created folder.

note: 'GAME' folder indicates the folder where all previously game are located.if the previous name of that folder is '3.71GAME' then the newly created folder must be 3.71GAME

this solution do bypassing the unreadable folder done by a virus,i did it before & it solve my psp problem

tnx 4 using fixya

Psp and getting video output

Hi, my advice would be to make sure you are putting videos that are compatible with psp. In some cases if you try putting a video in a format not compatible with the system the data will appear as corrupted. So, how do you get all videos to the psp. Simple you have to use a video converter before you send videos to your psp video folder. Check this page out for a free video converter:
