I will have to buy more blank CDs then, thanks again Jon. So far I am getting 5300 errors and raising, can that just the RAM?

The RAM is probably the cause, but it's also possible the motherboard is at fault. Try following through with Part 3 of my Memtest86 guide to try to narrow down which stick or which slot is the cause.

I currently running the 2nd stick in the first slot and there are no errors on the 2nd pass now, I am guessing it must be the first stick... Or 2nd slot. Btw, doing this on a PSP is hard. lol.

I'd RMA the whole RAM kit and get a new one so that you do not get compatibility issues.

Dean is correct, it's best just to replace both sticks at once.

Test the sticks in Slot 2, see what we get.

RMA? I put the 2nd stick in the 2nd slot and the 1st stick into the 3rd slot. No errors, But I am assuming it isn't reading it. So all these crashes were from the RAM? Nothing else?
EDIT: Yeah it isn't reading it in the third slot, just checked, also my sound isn't working. O.o

If there are errors showing in Memtest, it is pretty likely they are the cause of your BSODs. We cannot be sure of that, though, until we see actual results. To quote a respected BSOD analyst: "We deal in probabilities, not certainties."

Try running Memtest on only the first stick in the first slot; that should make the test run faster. If there are no errors after whatever pass the errors first started showing on, move on to test the second stick in the second slot.

2nd stick works fine, I need to test the first one then. running them both again and no errors.... I'm confused now. First run through found 5400 errors, its not finding any errors now on a new scan. But sound is out.. O_o
