    Title basically says it all.
    Met someone who dropped a PSP 3000 and now it no longer reads UMD discs.
    Any idea what needs replacing, what's the cheapest route to fix it, etc.

    Also, if there is no way way to fix it is there USB loading/SD loading on this console?
    Thanks!

    I'll add pics when I have the device in my possession!

    Its true. I dump all of my physical games cause reading from a UMD scares me and takes forever.

    Yeah. I just hacked the PSP and used Memstick loading...
    The downside is I HAVE to download the ROMs because the UMD reader is useless. :\
