    Greetings all!

    This is my first time posting and I am still very much in the newbie camp when it comes to these things. I just purchased a psp-1000 off eBay which had the official 6.60 firmware on it. I ran into issues playing anything downloaded from PSN (Demos, free full games from when the network was down and came back). The error code I received then was "This game cannot be started" (80210001). I tried everything I could and even called Sony. They told me that the PSP was probably modded at some point and couldn't help me.

    Once I heard it was probably modded I decided that I might as well and put CFW on it. I went ahead and did my research on how to and put 6.60 Pro-B10 CFW on it. Overall the system is doing what I want, and will now play any NEW demos or games I download from PSN, BUT whenever I try to play the ones that I received the error on before I now get "This game cannot be started" (80020148).

    I have tried changing to No-UMD in the recovery menu etc. but I was hoping someone would have an idea. Obviously I can survive if I can't play a couple of demos or the free games, but it would be nice to have it fully functional. Let me know if you need any more info.

    Thanks for your help!
