    Issues:

    As I previously stated a few times the issues were as followed. Random freezing, lagging, corruption. When I played Phantasy Star 0 for example it froze and I was forced to shut it down. When I tried rebooting it did not turn on. The power was on but the screen was black.

    My friend clonesniper666 sends me frequent DVDs with PSP games on them. When I transferred the latest from the last DVD he sent me it caused my PSP to get worse. I guess one of the ISOs had a virus. Not sure which one because I threw the disc out.

    Anyways I tried fixing it myself with nandtool but it did not discover any problems. It worked on the 8GB but when I transferred it to the 4GB it did not read it so I could not use it. Even though I transferred it over. So I guessed the 4GB had the virus in it.

    Anyways not realizing until later I found nearly all my save files deleted.

    I figured I could downgrade using the magic memory stick but none of the programs worked or allowed me to do anything. I guess I made it worse or did something during this because now my PSP won't read any of the ISOs. Yes a CFW PSP that can't read ISOs lol...

    Even if it could read all of the ISOs were corrupted. When I tried saving in games like Sar Wars BFII it froze and shut down on me. Note the blank screen is still going on during all of this.

    Anyways I am really disappointed because I only had it since the beginning of July. [​IMG]

    The CFW was 5.50 Prome -2.

    Sony hates me. [​IMG]

    You can't get a virus on a PSP....

    Was it a brand new PSP you had or a second hand one? Because if you bought preowned it's kinda your own fault....

    1 - Those aren't actual viruses, they're just destructive programs (malware).
    2 - That's obviously not the case here.

    It was a PSP 1000. Trust me when I tell you this. The memory stick was completely corrupted. I had to format it and erase everything from it. The PSP is 100% guaranteed to be corrupted. It may not be a virus or maybe it is but one thing I know for sure is the fact is also corrupted. I sent it to my friend hoping he can fix it. I am thinking it can be flashed and erased completely so it is a total brand new PSP with no settings or memory and with a complete downgraded OFW. That way it can be upgraded to CFW. I am hoping though if not somebody can buy it off me. I am willing to negotiate. Any prices are accepted as long as I can get rid of it. Honestly worst experience I ever had.

    >Phantasy Star 0
    Phantasy Star 0 is not a PSP game.
    *loses all credibility in the rest of the post*
    Maybe you should download ISOs from a safe place or actually buy them instead of transfering them from a DVD and then to your PSP.

    Oh I meant Phantasy Star Portable. My bad. I was thinking of the DS version for some reason.

    I am going back to Nintendo consoles. My experience in Sony consoles is not worth the hassle of trying to get a replacement.

    You know if you get a certain build of flash cart with a DS Lite, there's a chance it can blow a fuse on it...

    Going back to Nintendo? Why did you have to leave? When I bought a PSP, I wasn't deserting Nintendo and joining the legions of Sony. I bought it because it had games I couldn't play on my DS. It has a few gems, though I'm not really that satisfied with the hardware its self. Very bulky with poor controls. Whatever, worth what I payed for it.

    People seem to think that you must side with either Sony, Nintendo or Microsoft. Urgh...

    you have a fucked up memory stick. buy a new one.

    that, and there is a huge chance of something going wrong from:
    Le Interwebz -> ur friend's comp -> burned dvd -> your computer -> your memstick.

    dont start a big drama queen thread about how sony sucks because your psp doesnt play corrupted iso's.

    Im a noob to the PSP scene and it was not hard to found reliable sites for iso/cso. Maybe cutting out a couples steps of your getting file process would help to.


    I am quite glad I picked up my psp again after letting it sit for so long. The last ofw i updated to I believe was 3.95 or something like that.

    I have both a PSP and nintendo consoles, and the corrupted memory stick problem happened me twice but not in a PS, but in a DS flascart (Two times two diferent sd cards corrupted).

    I was always backing up my files so I barely lost something, but that experience never got me out of nintendo consoles.

    Since then I learned not all the memories can be trusted (Here in Mexico there are a lot of fake memory sticks and SD cards), so spending a little more than the average can bring me more security, but not 100%.
