I have a PSP I bought with 1.5 FW about 3 years ago. I haven't upgraded it from that. I bought a game the other day and I want to play it, but I can't upgrade the FW for some reason. I tried the 2.6 FW that's on the disc, I downloaded 2.71 to put on there and a universal upgrader/downgrader. The ones I've downloaded, I've put in a PSP/GAME/UPDATE folder I've made on my memstick. I can select the FW upgrade and click on it. When I click on it, it goes black for about 5 seconds, and comes back with a screen with no words on it. This happens for every FW I try to upgrade to. There is a X and O on the bottom of the screen. If I hit X, it brings up another blank screen with a right arrow on the side. If I hit the right dpad, i get a right and left arrow, hit right again and only a left arrow, almost like there are 3 screens I am navigating through. From here, nothing happens even when I hit buttons. The only one that works from here is the O which brings up the exit question, but there are no words. I know the exit question just from the way the screen looks. The PSP is fully charged and plugged in. Any ideas? I'm lost here.
