The PSP suffers from a number of faults that arise from both Sony construction issues and from general use.
The UMD disk is read by a Sony laser system, if you find that the disks are failing to load, loading extremely slowly,
or are making strange whirring noises, then the laser assembly is at fault. By replacing this part with a brand new official Sony replacement, your UMD disk reading problems will be over.
