View Full Version : I believe my memstick's freaking out

April 7th, 2007, 23:29
Me again.

I just had my PSP (TA-082) downgraded from 2.71 to 1.5 to 3.03 OE-A to 3.03 OE-B. As I was heading for OE-C, I did what others would normally do. Back up files then reformat memstick.

Now, the first time I format'd my memstick when mine was OE-B, the folders that were left would normally be mp_root, psp, music, picture and video.

My internet connection suddenly kinda got slow so I discontinued my pursuit of OE-C and planned to do it later, so I decided to put back my hbrews and stuffs in it.

THe problem is I can no longer click GAME folder in my computer. I can not even move folders back in it. Also the same in SAVEDATA. I had no problem with photos and stuff but hbrew is MUCH more important. Even my ISO is unreadable. I even tried reformatting the memstick twice to test it over but still the same result.

What should I do then? SOS

Try formatting it through the pc via usb by right clicking and selecting format if that dont work check the folder attributes to make sure they have'nt gone read only for some reason by right clicking on a folder then properties to see what the attributes are, if not report back to see if we can help some other way.

It says something like "F:/PSP/GAME refers to a location that is unavailable. It could be on a hard drive on this computer, or on a network.. blah blah"

What the?!

And if I keep on insisting to enter GAME folder, it opens a new window of My Documents.. weird

You do have a game folder on psp dont you?, Have you tried a different usb lead, worst case scenario you will have to run recovery back to your custom firmware and try again have you changed anything recently within flash0 like custom stuff

Plug in ur usb, go to start then run... type "cmd" and it will bring up CP, type CHKDSK f/ X: (X is the letter of your PSP) it will scan for errors.

Edit: nevermind!!... Now format thru the PSP!

try to reformat through psp when you format through pc everything will vanish thats the idea it cleans your mem stick completely.
