    thank you for all your help but i got it now, damn vista......










    ok well im going to explain my new situation now

    -i have firmware 3.71 with an old phat psp
    -i took of my 5th pin on my battery to make it a pandora battery
    -when i put said battery in my psp it starts up, but nothing shows up
    i tryed to make a magic stick but i got this mesage:

    target DRIVE is 1
    check partation sector
    cannot open device \\.\PHYSICALDRIVE1
    can't read partition sector
    press any key to continue . . .


    (note: what do i call my psps image when it asks me, or does it matter)

    -now the only way i can turn on the psp is with power cord


    but ya thats my situation as of now, i don't want to seem like beggar, and i don't expect you to do it all, but any help would be usefully

    thank you for reading, hope you can point out what i am doing wrong







    i am looking to hardmod a psp battery because i do not have access to another hacked psp.....

    so i think i will hard mod a battery and then buy another from a stor like deakextreme or something

    i was wondering if anyone here has hard moded a battery to use for pandora, i think i can do it with some hard plastic thing so i don't shortcircut the battery.


    anyways can anyone point me to a web page or something?

    thanks, does anyone have any pictures to go with somthing or is hard moding just not done as much.

    because i can not find anyone with a homebrewed psp around me so i will try and hard mod it and then will soft mod anyones battery if they pay for shipping both ways but i just can't get the whole cycle started

    My battery is one of the newer ones so I don't know if it applies to you exactly.

    I stuck a toothpick in between the pins and simply put a thumb tack under it and yanked it off.

    I recomend it only if you can't access an already modded battery cause if the pin next to it touches it, the battery blows up! I think you can find a video on it on youtube. The way I did it makes it only slightly safer because the tooth pick keeps the pins from accidentaly touching.
