You might have virus protection installed on your PC, and it'll block your memory stick of psp when your MS infected by virus/trojan.. You may access your ms using card-reader or consider to re-format your MS within PSP to refresh partition..

Im having trouble putting music on my psp


Hi drew_haker,
Please be reminded that PSP is compatible with these Audio formats: MP3, AAC and WMA. If you have these file formats, putting music on your PSP will be so easy for you. Here are the procedures you can follow in transferring your music files:
1. Using USB cable connect your PSP to your computer.
2. On your PSP, press HOME button.
3. Then choose SETTINGS, afterwards USB CONNECTION.
4. Just wait until your computer tells you that a new USB device has been connected, then show you a new generic hard drive, usually E: or F:.
5. Now, double click on your MUSIC folder and just drag your music files from your PC going to the said folder. If you haven't created MUSIC folder just create one, to organize the files.
6. Once done copying your desired music tracks, press the "O" button to disconnect PSP from PC.
To play your music, just go to the music icon. Look for "Memory Stick" and you should be able to find all your favorite music!
Hope it helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

I have transfered movie files onto the memory stick in my psp how do i retreive the movies on the psp to watch them? i cant find them in the menu on the console?


There are three parts to this.

1. Movies should appear on the "Video" portion of the PSP's menu. If they are not:

2. The movies were not properly transferred. It's important to note that PSPs will only play MP4 format video files. If the movie you moved to the PSP is not an MP4 file, it will never appear on the PSP video menu.

I have transferred a few movies to PSP, but I never ripped them myself. I have the following software package from ImToo. It rips the movie, converts it to MP4, names it properly, and transfers it to the PSP for me:

http://www.imtoo.com/dvd-to-psp-suite.html

3. If you have already ripped the movie as MP4 and it's not showing up in the video section, here's what you have to do:

Connect your PSP with PC, and copy those two files into "H:\MP_ROOT\100MNV01" (where "H" is the drive letter of your PSP). Re-name your files in PSP. You must re-name them to "M4Vxxxxx.MP4". There would be five random numbers followed "M4V" and the two letters should be capital. The numbers must be same for two files. This is quite important, or your file can not be played on PSP.

Can i upload some music in my psp from my pc? is that free?


Yes, you can.
Yes, it's free.

You can upload MP3 files with no problem.
You can upload unprotected WMA files with no problem, but you have to first connect your PSP to wifi and accept the windows media player agreement.
You cannot play protected WMA files on the PSP. Here's how to transfer music. You will need a memory sick duo for the PSP for storage and a USB cable to connect the PSP to your PC.

1. Connect your PSP to your PC via the USB cable.
2. On your PSP's menu, go all the way left into the Settings menu.
3. Scroll up to the USB Connection menu and click X
4. Your PC should recognize your PSP. You can then access your PSP's installed memory stick just as you would any other drive. Let's say, for example, your PSP is now drive G:\ on your Computer. On your PC, click into drive G:
5. Click into the PSP Folder. If this folder does not exist, you can create it by clicking File --> New --> Folder
6. Click into the MUSIC Folder. If this folder does not exist, you can create it by clicking File --> New --> Folder

==> Here you can drap and drop [or copy and paste] all of your MP3 or WMA files and they should appear on the PSP's music menu.

Connect a USB Cable.


do a full power off on the PSP, ie hold the power button for 5 seconds until it properly turns off. a short slide of the power button only puts it in standby mode.

also (on the PSP) check under Settings > USB Auto Connect (ON) - ensure this is enabled. makes it easy to connect USB with this turned on. but you need an up to date firmware on the PSP for this setting.

still no go?
try and restart the computer and plug the PSP back in once you have your desktop up.

Cant download music


try NOT going through media player as it tries to convert any audio. keep your files as mp3. preferably stored in "My music" file on your computer. then when you connect your psp via USB go to "open folder to view files" then open psp/music file. leave it open and open a "My computer" window my documents/my music, then just click and drag to psp/music file.

File Transfer Problems


Try using a different method to transfer files. This is how I do it:

Connect the PSP to the computer then access it's folders by going into "My Computer". Once that window has been brought up, open the folder with all your music or whatever you want. Now, with both windows next to each other, drag and drop the files you want on your PSP.

If the same problem keeps occurring, it may be your computer that's the problem if your PSP is still trying to connect once it's been disconnected. Have you tried removing your PSP safely? There should be a little icon on the right bottom of your computer screen that says "Safely Remove Hardware". Use that to remove your PSP from now on if you haven't already.

I hope this works for ya! ^-^
