First off, my firmware history... 2.60 -> 2.71 -> 1.50 -> 3.40OE-A. I reformatted my ms before/after each update and everything went fine. Also, my psp is a TA-082, but that shouldn't matter at this point. The problem I'm having is whenever I enable No UMD in recovery I always get 'The game could not start (80020321)' error message.(I've tried this with 3-4 different games now) This is the same error you get if you have No UMD disabled and you forget to put a UMD in. So basically my PSP still seems to think it needs a game in there even when No UMD is enabled. (and having a real UMD in there doesn't fix it) Also, the games DO work if I disable No UMD and have a real UMD in there, but some games only work with No UMD.. which is my problem. I've tried... reformatting my memory stick, formatting flash1, resetting default settings, a number of different combinations in the Advanced -> Advanced part of recovery.. and I still get the same error message regardless if No UMD is enabled. Anyone have any ideas? At this point I think it either has to be the memory stick (i'm using a Lexar 4GB) or something went wrong flashing the the firmware..
