    Whenever I connect my psp to my pc, it says "there is something wrong with this drive click to fix" I haven't noticed any problems with my games locking up or not transferring. My psp is 3001 6.60 pro-c fw any clue why this keeps popping up? It is ok to fix it or not?

    It probably has fragmented clusted on the memory stick.

    Just ignore the mesage.

    It wouldn't hurt to do a disk check on it, but don't bother trying to defragment it. If worse comes to worse, copy everything off of it, reformat the stick (preferably using the PSP if an actual memory stick, Secure Digital's format tool if you're using a micro SD adapter), and copy everything back over.

    Is it due to age? I got it back in 08 and had it ever since, been in two different psps over the course of it's life never gave me any problems.

    Not necessarily no, It's just something that happens over time. Especially when you are copying and deleting files from the card. As has been said perform a disk check if you want to ensure no physical errors, but don't defrag it [limited number of writes on flash and defragging will thrash it]. It's barely an issue and basically means you will get slightly slower access times [nothing you'd notice], nothing to worry about.
