Yay. Custom firmware get. Pandora's battery finally came. Was up till 1 o clock last night pissing about with this. Couldn't get the Magic memory stick maker to work. It definitely doesn't work in Windows 7, and will only work in Windows XP without any updates from the last couple of years.
In the end I downloaded a live Windows XP lite version and used that. Just when I thought I'd solved it, another strawberry floating error. Something about corrupt keys, so it was another internet hunt and another utility. Turns out the guy I bought it from did a complete job on it and had messed about with a key which identified what model the PSP was.
Anyway, after this was sorted the strawberry floater was mine. Followed the custom firmware guide Poser PM'ed me. Worked a treat.
And I learnt quite alot too, I feel confident that I can now fix bricked PSPs. Shame it's a dead format
