View Full Version : PSP won't run PSN bought games

November 15th, 2009, 20:00
Ok, so I just upgrade my PSP to 5.50 GEN-D2 and it won't run any of the games I bought from PSN like Half-Minute Hero, GTA: Chinatown Wars, Fieldrunners etc.

It will run UMD games perfectly.

Every time I try to copy a PSP game from my PS3, I get some error and it doesn't copy. Maybe the games won't run because the thing isn't activated?

I also can't download games from MediaGo.

Anyway to bypass this?

Here's some things to try:

In recovery, toggle the 'Game folder homebrew' to 1.5 then back to 5.xx

Change 'UMD Mode' to Sony NP9660

In the MS root, there should be a folder called "backup" containing a file called act.bin. Copy that file into Flash2

Disable all plugins, boot up, then restart and enable them again.

Did all that except the act.bin part because I don't have that folder :O

All act.bin did to me was make my psn login disappear.

Flow was refusing to run in 550GENB, so I updated to D-2, and it still didn't run. I monkeyed around in the recovery for a bit, and it started working again.

OFW, redownload, CFW?
That's the best idea I got.

try using the PSN store on your computer and loading to your PSP that way

Error while trying to download a game from MediaGo or even PS3.

That's the best idea I got.

That's what I did in the first place. I had 5.00 GEN (if not mistaken), upgraded to 6.0 OFW, downgraded to 5.50 GEN-D2 CFW and still not working.

I think it's a GEN glitch.
Some times, my psn games just stop working, with a 80000013 error (or whatever that code is).

Disable all plugins, then try to start the game. You may also want to try 'faking' your own Region.

Done all of that :| Sigh...maybe GEN team sees this and starts working on a patch...

Here's what I want you to do:

1. Backup all savedata, and whatever else is important, then reformat your memory stick.

2. upgrade to OFW.

3. re-register PSP, then download all paid content again.

4. downgrade to 500m33

5. upgrade to 550GEN

6. see if the "backup" folder appears. If so, back it up.

7. upgrade to 550GEN-D

8. see if that "backup" folder is there yet.

9. copy contents of the backup folder in flash2.

use media go to download, with your PSP not connected
then once its downloaded, close mediago and connect your PSP
then use windows explorer to transfer

if that doesnt work

then the problem is probably in your USB

try transfering to MS w/o the PSP
