    i just modded my psp slim a couple of days ago and when i loaded my first iso i noticed that it did not recognize my card when i tried to save my game. i was a little pist off at first but then i tried putting a umd
    in the drive and then my psp was able to recognize my card and let me save.
    my question is, do i need to have a umd in the drive when im playing isos so that i can save games?
    id like to save my battery as much as possible. when i turn on my psp i can here the umd drive.
    thanks

    not sure if it will work for you or not but turn off you psp completely then hold R and turn your psp on you should be in the recovery menu when your in this menu there should be an option to turn off the UMD drive if you wish to save power then turn it off but you'll have to turn it back on if you wish to play games via umd again

    No you don't need a UMD in the drive for the PSP to save from any game. If you do then there's something wrong.

    Before you go around screwing with the Recovery Mode settings, download another iso from a different source and get back to us then.
