If other games work, the check the options in the recovery and make sure they're correct.

Also make sure the file on your ms is not corrupt.

The two top culprits when ever I have this sort of problem.

if you tried to resize the iso or remove files some games won't work without the iso complete, gripshift is another game thats like this, so check the source of where you got the file, maybe they tried to rip something from it?

I know what the issue is.
you have to go into the recovery menu and change from no-UMD mode to normal mode.
Or if you have VHS-menu enabled then hold "home" untill a little menu pops up. Change whatever UMD driver you have to normal.
Then make sure you have a UMD in your PSP and just play the ISO.
It'll load fine that way.

problem is, i don't have a umd to put in the drive, will this be fixed in a later firmware update or something?

oh and is it the same problem with plus too?

Yes, I've confirmed it for both games...
If you don't have a UMD then just go to your nearest game store and buy the cheapest PSP game you can find.
Its not like you're going to play it

One word of advice though... Make sure the game is in good shape because it might cause your games to freeze.
I used to have a GTA:LCS UMD which was falling apart and was making even the XMB freeze

you might want to read this, why does it work for them without no umd?

Mine works at 333 MHz i am running 3.52 M33-2 No-UMD mode

Different CFW.
I guess this is one of the reasons people prefer 3.52 M33 over 3.71 M33

just tried portable ops plus on my 3.17 m33-3 firmware and it loads fine, i don't have to disable no umd or anything it just loads and that's it

so the best thing to do OP is to check where you have got the iso from, make sure no umd mode is enabled via the recovery menu and that's it really.

You can change the ISO loading mode in the VHS menu by pressing select on the XMB.

    Yeah back in my late teens I used to mow about 10 lawns every two weeks for $35 a yard. It was stupid big yards I knew where paying a lot more than that to lawn care companies in a some what up tier gated community a few blocks from the area I lived. Was great getting $700 a month with no bills at the time and good excercise too, now I have bills so I never have any money to buy things.
