    hi guys i would really appreciate your help.

    i have just chipped my PSP and i was playing games on it normally.
    then i tried to play an Avatar game i had and it sort of stuck so i removed the battery and restarted it.
    after i did this, there was this message when i try to go for games it says: 'there are no games'
    i have tired everything from formatting my memory stick to inserting a blank text document in the GAME folder
    but nothing has worked yet.

    any help is greatly appreciated.
    thanks a lot!

    If you chipped then I have no idea.

    If you modded it you should put your games in the ISO folder at the root of the memory stick.

    Also make sure your filename for your iso are not too long. Otherwise the game won't show up in your xmb.

    Just so you all know, there IS a PSP modchip.

    http://www.mod-chip.com/psp/psp-modchips/p...d-platinum.html

    With the PSP completely open and everything now, though, I don't see why anyone would buy one unless they didn't do any research whatsoever on the PSP and its hacks and figured the best mod is always a chip.

    Which version is your PSP? Maybe you have a PSP which needs temporary CFW

    A few questions to help...

    What PSP model do you have? 1000 (the first edition model), 2000 (the PSP Slim), 3000 (the current PSPs) or the Go (which is obviously the Go)?

    Did you put your games in the ISO folder on the root of the memory stick? You only should put homebrew and Playstation games in the GAME folder.

    What firmware are you running? It should be under System Settings. Like mine says 5.50 GEN D3 (which is CFW).

    Have you tried other games from other download sources?

    Hope I can help.

    sounds like your psp was softmodded, which means you need to manually reboot from the original firmware into a custom firmware every time you turn off the PSP.
    do you know what firmware version you have?
    EDIT: for 5.03
    try this: http://pspslimhacks.com/signed-5-03-kernel...t-hen-released/
    it should reboot your firmware into the custom firmware you had before.

    Then follow this guide to determine if you have a fully moddable PSP or not and to either way at least give it temporary CFW or permanent CFW.
