    Ok so heres the deal.

    i load Star Ocean First Departure .CSO to my memory card then try to boot the game

    it flashes the psp game screen then said "the game could not be started (80020321)" any ideas?

    Im running 5.00 M33-6 on a Phat 1001 psp

    there is only 15 mb on the memory card if that matters

    The 15 mb doesn't matter, it could be something to do with your custom firmware settings. Go to the vsh menu (by pressing select from the xmb or by holding r-button on startup). Check your loader settings, it should be set to m33 loader (no umd) or sony np990 loader.

    If that still doesn't work then it could be a bad file (though i doubt the splash screen would even load then)

    Or if you don't have vsh active, completely turn off the psp, hold R-Trigger, turn on psp, and go to configuration, somewhere in there there should be something like UMD Mode, set it to m33 one or sony one.

    Thanks Mr Waffle! I was having the same problem and what you said did the trick!

    If you don't have a UMD in your psp and you set the mode to Normal, it won't work, since that setting loads from the UMD.
