    Tried to post this in the appropriate forum but it wouldn't let me so here goes.

    Hi everyone, I am very new to the PSP and recently acquired a PSP-1001 (Phat) model but it is running an extremely old version CFW 3.71 M33-2. I am trying to run some UMD games I purchased and it is saying it requires at least OFW version 6.37 to run. Upon trying to run the System updater via the UMD it gives an error saying error reading disc (80010005). I also get the same error when trying to update the system to OFW 6.61 via the memory card (80010005) and subsequently (80020321). I can read and write to the memory card in USB mode and the update files and recovery apps like Hellcat or Kronosswitch are available under the memory card in the games menu. I tried running Kronosswitch but it also complains about not being on a support firmware level. Not sure where I go from here, I am fine going to an updated CFW or OFW just want to play these games I bought. I've looked through various articles but one of the hardest problems has been trying to find links to any source files that work, the old version of my current CFW seems to make it especially more difficult to update in any way shape or form. Any help or direction would be appreciated.

    After updating to the M33 5.0 Update I was able to update to OFW 6.60 and then went on to install OFW 6.61 followed by Infinity PRO CFW 6.61. Couldn't be easier, a member on gbatemp forums suggested this course and it worked great.
