    I'm new to the whole psp hacking thing, and I got a psp 1000 with the 5.50 GEN-D3 firmware pre-installed. Now I gather that should let me install and play ISOs and homebrew and whatnot, but the problem is when I connect the psp to my pc with a USB cable, it shows that my (2 gig) memory stick only has 40 megs available, and I don't think the folders it's displaying are then ones that should be there (there is no "psp" folder, for example). Can anyone tell me what might be happening and what I can do to fix it?

    codepage, config, data, dic, font, kd, vsh

    codepage and config are completely empty, if that means anything.

    Format the memory stick. Download Pro-B10 and install that on your PSP 1000. Re-download any ISOs or homebrew you lost in the formatting process.

    I would format the memorycard and start fresh. If you want to stay where you are more current the link is below. Could also go to the 6.xx Pro cfw If you wanted. I'm no expert but It sounds like your cfw wasn't installed right. 2 Gig card is pretty low, recommend you get a better memory card. A 16gb micro sdhc with a produo adaptor is pretty cheap nowadays. There is a bunch online around 15 dollars.

    Why couldn't he just back up the ISOs and homebrew before formatting?
