    When you turn on the PSP it gets to the Sony Computer thing and the next thing will be the XMB right? When I turn on my PSP after the Sony Computer thing XMB will load very slow and i need to open the UMD door so i can see the XMB and when i try to play a game sometimes it will stick to the gameboot and afterwards it will turn off automatically.When i turn it on its like a bricked PSP i can hardly go to recovery menu and XMB.When i press the home button and quit the game it will stick to the Please Wait.. message.

    i have 5.00 m33-4. PSP SLIM.
    HELP PLSSSSS

    This is why I removed my UMD drive.

    It makes the PSP start up slower, and it's annoying.

    I guess what you could do is leave the UMD out when turning on, then place it inside after the XMB loads.

    But if I were you, I'd back up any games you have onto your computer, and just remove the damn UMD Drive.

    PSP works perfectly, and runs faster+longer battery life.

    I guess the UMD drive is as useless as throwing a shoe at George Bush, it just doesn't work the way you want it to.

    How do you remove it? Well, find a PSP diassembly guide, and unscrew some screws, and unplug some ribbon cables and pull it out the back.

    Easier said then done, for you, but when I got around to doing it, it was really easy and I was very surprised.

    Lol it doesn't require a Diploma, a college education, or some doctor to operate on your brain to make you understand how to do it.

    All you need to know is how to use a screwdriver, literally that's it.

    All you're doing is unscrewing screws, and then taking something out.

    Also What am I using to cover the back part?

    If you mean the UMD Door, it is still there(granted I broke a hinge and it is taped on one side).

    You only remove the actual drive itself, and the cage which holds the UMD in place.

    So yeah, the door stays.

    A ribbon cable is, umm, well this:

    The orange strip thingy.

    I'm 100% serious though, you can be an idiot and get it out in one piece.

    It's very simple.

    It is the UMD Drive.

    It will work better because you said when you open the UMD door, it then loads the XMB.

    When you open the UMD Door, the drive stops running and is sort of like, inactive, until you close it.

    If you got rid of it, it would be permanently(unless put back) inactive, therefore needing no time to load the UMD Drive or search for a UMD upon start up.

    If your PSP is Bricked and needs to be UnBricked and/or you need Pandora Battery.
