    Alright, I've been looking for answers on this question for a long time. I guess this forum has some experts who might be help me wih my prob.

    I have a psp with 3.40 OE-A Firmware. I run all my games with the no-umd thingie disabled, and with a umd disc inserted, the way it should be done with these custom firmwares.

    The problem is that some games just won't work. The thumbnail works like a charm but when i try to start it , the screen just stays black forever. Again this is only with some dlled games. For instance : FIFA08, Burnout Legends, DBZ Shin budokai, Daxter etc. work , while PES2007, DBZ Shin Budokai 2 and Burnout Dominator don't.

    Anyone has has this problems too ? I don't really see a pattern in it. It's not that iso or cso don't work, i got both of them to run on my psp, it's just some games.

    Is it maybe a common problem with the 3.40OE-A firmware and you guys suggest that i should upgrade to 3.50 ?


    Lookin forward to some replies. Thanks in advance !!!

    Yea, you'd be hard pressed to get that many bad ISOs :)

    I have about 150 games and only 2 were bad...

    By "disable umd in the recovery menu" do you mean selecting one of these options:
    UMD Mode - m33 Driver -NO UMD-
    UMD Mode - Sony NP9660 -NO UMD-
    UMD Mode - OE isofs legacy -NO UMD-

    rather than using:
    UMD Mode - Normal -UMD required................?

    I have tried all of the -NO UMD- settings available without luck.

    An update : I just updated to 3.52 M33-4 version.
    The games who wouldn't work with my previous version still don't work. But instead of showing the thumbs like before, the game doesn't even appear on my psp.
