    Unhappy PSP ISOSs Disappeared?! Yet save data is still there...?!

    I have a PSP 2000 model that I had installed with custom firmware for Update 6.6.1 on two 1-gig Memory Sticks.

    Recently, I downloaded a few ISOs to the sticks and played them. Awhile later, after my PSP gradually ran out of charge while being in sleep mode, it shut down. I recharged the battery and powered it on.

    (Take note, after my PSP's battery runs out of charge and turned on again the date and time has to be manually set upon bootup. This has to be done EVERY time. Is this normal?)

    When I went to play my ISO's again, I discovered that, on the Memory Stick, they're icons to select them were gone! Crazily enough, however, the save files on the Save Data section of the Stick, AND the leftover spaceon the Stick, AND even the ISOs themselves seen from my computer on the "ISO" folder(!) had indicated that the ISOs were not gone, but simply unplayable.

    The problem is that I can't play them, even though the information on the Sticks indicate that the ISOs are there! What am I supposed to do?

    Thanks!

    You fell off CFW and reverted to OFW, this happens whenever your PSP runs fully out of power or is fully shutdown. You should have Fast Recovery tool on your game menu, click it to relaunch CFW. If you removed the Fast Recovery tool to save space on your tiny 1GB memory cards, you'll need to reinstall CFW again from scratch... So check both your memory cards for that tool.
    *PSA* Wii Redump collector's can now unscrub ISO files. So scrubbed games can now be verified. You can find the program to do this here

    I still had all the custom firmware tools on my card, so I used the fast recovery tool, and it worked! Thank you so much for helping me.
