i have this strange problem with my psp phat 1004 running on 5.50 gen-d3:
I am using a san disk 8gb micro sd card together with a micro sdhc compatible adapter
When I start a game or app from the memory stick the device sometimes crashes and stays with a black screen while the memory stick light is flashing permanently. The same thing sometimes happens when exiting a game/app. In this case the device stays at the "please wait" screen and won't return to xmb.
But there are no crashes while running a game/app.
The only thing I can do when this happens is to either shut down the device and power it on again or releasing the memory stick and inserting it again (sometimes I have to do this several times). Interestingly the device will continue to load when I do the latter.
I tried the following to solve the problem:
- restored default settings
- tried another micro sd card
- formatted the micro sd card in the psp
- tried another micro sd adapter
- reflashed 5.50 gen-d3
- downgraded to 5.00 m33-6
Nothing has worked so far. The problem still persists.
Can this be related to the fact that I'm using a micro sd adapter/micro sd card? Are there general problems with micro sd cards on the psp?
Or is this a hardware defect?
So the strange thing is these crashes only happen when loading or exiting a game/app from the memory stick. It never happens while runnig a game/app.
Is there any way to fix this issue?
Thanks in advance
