    I have a PSP 1000 with 5.00 m33 installed. I have run dozens of different games but I have been unable to play Madden 10 and a EUR version of Dirt 2. I load the game then my umd drive spins on and I get the above message. This happens with both games. I have my psp set to no umd, and I have tried it without my umd in with the same results. Any suggestions. Any help would be appreciated cause I really wanna play those 2 games.

    I believe madden 10 can only be played on 5.50GEN B, but I'm not sure about dirt, try making an iso and using version.txt

    If it's EUR and it's not an ISO, I believe you need to change the region in the Recovery Menu. ISOs from any region should run though. And Madden 10 DOES need GEN-B.
