    This only happens on NIS games btw.

    I was playing disgaea 2 and zhp, and every once in a while, the sound would get really glitchy. After walking around a lil more, the game would freeze up. Does anyone know why this is happening?

    I googled up some solutions, and 1 guy said to format flash1 in the recovery menu. I gave it a try and now my games wont even load lol (not just NIS games).

    I'm currently using Prome-2 and have a psp phat 100x


    help is much appreciated!

    edit: i dont get wats wrong, so i tried chickhen again. the eggsploit pic is now unsupported (it worked before...?)

    What.
    Format Flash 1 and reset settings does just that, it resets your settings. You'd need to set M33 Driver and the rest of the settings in the Recovery menu too.
    And why would you even use HEN on a Phat after the first time? I could understand OFW 5.03 -> ChickHEN -> 5.50 GEN-D3 via Recovery Flasher -> 5.50 Prometheus (any version), and you don't need the HEN afterwards.
    Also, the original problem makes it sound like it's a problem with your MS. You sure it's an original card?

    Use ChickHEN to run Hellcat's Recovery Flasher to turn you battery into a Pandora.

    Upgrade your PSP to 5.50 Prom-2.

    If the problem persists, try disabling any plugins.

    lol. extra useless steps when you could upgrade (he doesn't even need to because he is already on the firmware) from hellcats.

    i bet its the driver like Jolan said

    what do you mean by original card o.o im using a sandisk 2g that i use to use for my camera. i also think you might be right about the problem though, because once (just once, never worked again) i took out the card during the glitchy sound and put it back, and that somehow fixed it. every time i do it afterwards though just freezes it lol.

    thanks for the help! much appreciated

    Don't do that.....

    Turn your PSP on. When you get to the main XMB menu screen push the select button. A little menu should pop up. Change the UMD Mode to Sony np9660 or M33. Then push select again.

    Did you expect to be told to buy Chinatown Wars when you came asking for help? No? So butt out if you're being deliberately idiotic or don't know enough to offer any sensible advice.

    Plus how do you know that TC doesn't own it in the first place?

    See, that's exactly one of the reasons games tell you NOT TO REMOVE the memory stick during games, because it ends up corrupted (broken, hard to fix) and creates even more problems. Just get another memory stick and don't use this one on the PSP anymore.

    actually i never did it before the sound glitch. only tried it AFTER my game got all buggy for reasons unknown, so it cant be because of that. ill try buying a new stick though, thx!

    still gotta figure out the settings i had before (i know the flash1 reformat resets my settings, i just didnt know what were the previous settings that i had which enabled me to play ISOs, and i previously thought it was the same settings for everyone). ill mess around with the options a lil and see if that works.
