    Well i have a couple of psp systems

    1 in particular that i updated to a newer CFW ( 6.60 ME 2.3) has issues with a game
    YS seven starts but within seconds makes the psp shut off
    previously i was running LME 6.60 1.8 and this game ran just fine.

    Tested 6.60 LME 2.3 on a slim model and ys seven does the same thing... ( starts and makes the psp shut off within like 3 seconds).

    Any idea on what the issue is exactly? Obviously the issue seems to come from the lme/me 2.3 cfw but not sure how others by passed this or fixed it

    Did the ISO mode change? I remember I had mine set to sony9660 and after I upgraded my firmware, it defaulted to inferno.

    I haven't used my psp system(s) in a while, i forgot how to access that specific menu

    Was it pressing select and another button?

    Yes. You can press select at the xmb. You can change some settings in the vshmenu. You'll be able to change the "umd ISO mode".

    mine was already set to sony NP9660

    i switched it to '' ME driver'' and now it loads though i am unsure if it would cause issues with other games ( i can also switch it again)

    i never had this issue with LME or ME 6.60 1.8 though sony NP9660 was default on those and it played without issues

    seems the game is playable on ME driver though

    Playing the psp again reminds me of how great this system was for its time and even now. Could emulate snes, nes, gameboy, and a bunch of other systems on top of ps1.

    thanks for the vshmenu pointer i knew there was an option there but i couldn't remember

    Awesome! Yes, the psp is a great emulation device with a decent library......as long as you keep it charged.
    Also, check your plugins. You can boot to recovery mode (hold R while powering on) to see the pops, vsh, and game enabled plugins. Some may not work with your new cfw. You should disable ones that you don't use or can live without.
