    Hi all,
    I just bought a premodded PSP and it seems that UMDs won't work. I don't think they even spin because I can't hear anything when I put them in the drive.
    Anyway, my question is whether there's a way to use devhook without the UMD drive working. I think I can live with a broken UMD drive if devhook can work without it. If I have to use custom firmware, that's fine.

    I'm sorry for being such a noob. :(
    Feel free to flame me, but please answer my question. Thanks.

    What about replacing the UMD drive? Is that a relatively easy process?
    To be honest, I'd rather avoid shipping the PSP off and waiting another few weeks for it to get back if I can fix the problem myself easily, or take it to a local console repairing shop.

    does the umd actually need to spin? or does it just need to be in the drive? isnt there some kind of switch inside that tells the firmware that there is a disk in the drive? which is what devhook gives?

    AngelChick give devhook a try with a disk in the drive, i wouldnt be surprised if it works as long as the disk is in the drive doesnt matter if it spins?
