Hi, I bought a PSP a week or two ago, pre-loaded with 3.40 OE-A.
Up until now I've just been playing with homebrew stuff (emulators/etc)..
Today I bought my first UMD game, Grand Theft Auto Liberty City Stories (brand new).
When I put it in the UMD drive, only about half the time does it ever show up in the game menu..
When I press x on the umd icon it does load and plays intros..
Except, the game seems to have about 2-3 phases of intros.. the first two always play, but sometimes it freezes (just sits at "Loading...") after the 2nd intro phase, sometimes after the third..
I've yet to make it into actual gameplay.
When the disc is reading I can hear it kind of rattling around in the UMD drive, which I don't think is quite good o_O
To me this spells out damaged UMD drive, right? I just wanted to get some second opinions, cause I've never had a PSP before this one.. and maybe I'm way off, maybe it has something to do with the custom firmware (like being set to 1.5 in the recovery menu?)
Any opinions on this would be very helpful.
