A new PSP firmware update is now available via the Network Update option on your PSP. Version 3.73 doesn’t actually list any of the changes it makes before you install it, but PSP Fanboy got word from SCEA about what it does.

“With this update, operation of the UMD™ (Universal Media Disc) drive has been improved to address cases in which the UMD drive occasionally suspends and fails to reload data. Updating the system software to version 3.73 will resolve this issue,” said SCEA’s Al De Leon.

It’s a minor update, so you shouldn’t have really been expecting much. At least anyone who has suffered from this problem can avoid having it happen again, and for those of us who are lucky enough to have avoided it thus far, we can keep it that way.
