Yep, as long as you start up the USB Connection in the settings menu all the way to the left. You can drag your mp3s into the PSP/MUSIC folder and it should recognize them. You can not download mp3s directly from the PSP web browser though

How do i put music from my p c to my psp


To play mp3 on your PSP, you'll need
  • A big enough memory stick duo. The 32 Mb that comes with your psp will only fit a few songs. To really make it practical, i recommend that you try and find 1G memory stick. If you look hard enough, you'll be able to find one for about 0
  • You'll also need a Mini-USB (USB A to USB Mini-B) cable or a memory stick card reader to access your memory stick from your pc.
1. Connect to your memory stick
If you are using memory card reader I assume you already know how to do this. If you are using USB cable, simply connect the cable to your PSP and Windows will detect it as a new drive.
2. Copy your music into the folder named "MUSIC" inside the "PSP" folder.
In the memory stick, there should already be a folder called "PSP", if there aren't any, you haven't been playing any games! Inside the PSP folder, find a folder named "MUSIC". If it is not there, don't worry, simply create a new one.

Now, simply copy your mp3 songs into this "Music" folder and you're done. You can also create folders inside the "MUSIC" folder and put your songs there.

Mp3 Playback Tips

  • To save battery, you can turn of the screen by holding the brightness toggle button for more than 1 second.
  • Press the triangle button to view other options such as repeat mode and the built-in help.

My computer (HP DV 5200TX) is not reading the memory stick duo. What steps can I try?


I didn't know that HP built computers with card slots that support MS pro duo. Try getting a mini-usb cable, leaving the card in your psp, and plug the PSP into your computer. Make sure you set the PSP to connect using the USB first, though.

How to make download games from computer to psp


Hello

CONNECT YOUR PSP TO PC

The PSP can function as a USB Memory Stick Duo reader. Using this functionality, you can copy pictures, audio, and other content to and from your Memory Stick Duo. To access the Memory Stick Duo in your PSP from your PC, you'll need a USB cable that has a "Mini-B" connector (common for digital cameras) and a "Standard-A" connector (common for printers, etc). Plug the Mini-B side into the top of your PSP and the Standard-A side into your PC. From the PSP software, navigate to the top of the settings list and select "USB Connection." Your PC (Windows/Mac/Linux) should detect a new "Removable Disk Drive" that you can then access.

FORMAT YOUR MEMORY STICK

In order to be able to use your new memory stick on your PSP, you'll have to format it. When you format your memory stick, the formatting will create a set of new folders on your PSP: GAME, MUSIC, PHOTO, and SAVEDATA.

EXTRACT THE SAVED GAME

This process will greatly depend on which software you use to extract zip files. WinRAR for instance offers the "extract here" option, which will simply extract the contents of a zip file to it's current directory.

TRANSFER SAVE GAME TO "SAVEDATA" FOLDER

Just copy the folder you have just extracted, and paste it into the PSP's "SAVEDATA" folder. But, BEWARE!, to any folder overwrite warnings! Because the PSP save game folders use the same names for the same games, copying folders into these locations could lead to lost data. For this reason, we recommend that you backup your old save games before overwriting them. For Example, I would simply rename a folder like "ULPS0004" to "ULPS0004_backup."

EXIT USB MODE

Because your PSP has been in USB Mode throughout this process, just push X to exit. Then you can safely disconnect your PSP from your PC.

VERIFY TRANSFER OF SAVE DATA

To verify the integrity of the SAVE GAME data you have just transferred, use the PSP's built-in Save Data Utility. Select it from the "Game" menu.
That's it, simple and smooth.

My computer cant recognize my sps


Before you plug it in,
Make sure the PSP is in USB connect mode.
Also make sure the Memory Stick PRO Duo has been formatted for PSP. If it's not this is how you do it:
On the main menu, scroll all the way left to the "Settings" menu. Then select "System Settings." Then scroll to "Format Memory Stick" and press X.

Cant get computer to recognize the psp


First, make sure the music you are wanting is in mp3 format

Hook up your Sony PSP to your computer via a USB cable. Turn on the PSP and put it in "USB CONNECT" mode (it should display the words "USB CONNECT" on the PSP display during the entire time you're transferring files, and plug it in if you don't have a fully charged battery).
If your computer complains that you are connecting a high-speed USB device on a low-speed USB port, try unplugging it (which is to say, take your PSP out of "USB CONNECT" mode, then unplug the cable from the PSP) and plugging it into a different USB port. Somewhere on your computer you have a higher-speed port, which you should certainly use if you can. If not, or if you can't figure out which port is USB 2.0, then you should be able to safely ignore the warning message and proceed anyway. Once you rehook up your PSP, do make sure you remember to put it back into "USB CONNECT" mode).
Your PC or Mac should just magically show a new removable hard disk on the desktop (or, if needed, go to My Computer to find it). On a Mac it'll probably show up as a device called "Removable Drive", but on a PC it can show up as drive E:, F:, G: or whatever else is the next available drive name on your computer. If it doesn't show up and you're running Windows XP, then you might need to search for the proper driver, which is hopefully an option. If you're running an earlier version of Windows, you're kinda on your own because earlier versions don't support pluggable hard drives. There's an untested Windows98 driver you can download from Interia.pl, but I haven't heard from anyone whether it actually works or not.
Once your PSP shows up on your computer, you should be able to navigate the different directories to find a folder called MUSIC. That's where you want to drag and drop your MP3 files, so do so now, realizing that each music file typically takes up 2-3MB of space, so the default 32MB Memory Stick Duo that came with the Sony PSP is only going to be able to hold about one CD of music before it's full, and that's assuming you don't have any game saves on it. Instead, you might consider buying a bigger Memory Stick: I have a 512MB one that gives me plenty of space and it didn't cost much (Amazon.com, for example, sells this funky green 512MB PSP-compatible Memory Stick for less than $40, with free shipping).
(If you don't have a "MUSIC" folder on your PSP then you might need to have the PSP unit itself reformat the memory stick (rather than your PC) so that all of the folders are setup properly.)

Once you've copied your music files onto your Sony PSP device, you should be done. Take the PSP out of "USB CONNECT" mode, then unplug the cables, hook up headphones so you can hear the PSP audio, and then go to the MUSIC area on the PSP.
One of the items listed in "MUSIC" is something called Memory Stick. Your songs are in that folder. To get to them, move the highlight bar to "Memory Stick" and press the "X" button:

You can see the "X button on this photo: it's the lowest of the four buttons on the right side control area.
You should then move into the Memory Stick music area and see all of your MP3 files. Click on one to play it!
Hopefully these detailed instructions will help you avoid tossing your PSP out the window. If not, well, let me know when you'll be tossing it and maybe I can catch it and use it as another test device. :-)

Yes there is a way. What you will need is a PC, Some form of Memory stick Duo card Reader, And a PSP Compatible Memory stick Duo/Pro Duo.

If you havent already used the memory stick inside the PSP it will not have the correct Formatted file System for use in the PSP. but you can create the file system using your computer.

heres how to do it ! :

1) plug your Memory stick Duo/Pro Duo into the card reader on your computer.
2) open my computer, locate the Memory stick usually found under the "devices with removable storage" area.
3) once inside the memory stick, create 2 seperate folders. One called "PSP" and the other one called "MP_ROOT".
4) Navigate into the "PSP" Folder and create 3 Folders, "MUSIC", "PICTURE" & "VIDEO"
5) Copy & Paste the Necessary files into each Subsequent Sub-Folder within the "PSP" Folder.

Note : The PSP Can only handle Certain File types for Pictures, Music, And Video. i would suggest Navigating to http://psp.about.com/od/hardwarefirmware/p/compformat.htm before you transfer your files to ensure that you are adding files which are Viewable/Readable by The PSP's software.

Hope this helps !?

get a memory stick duo of any Gigabyte size you want, Turn on the psp and insert the memory stick duo.Navigate to SETTINGS, under SETTINGS scroll to the SYSTEM SETTINGS and press the X buttom. system settings will appear, then scroll to the FORMAT MEMORY STICK and press the X buttom.
a message will appear and select yes, this will format the memory stick duo and create folders like MUSIC, VIDEO ,PICTURES etc. required by the psp.
restart the psp system and you are good to go. remember to save MP3 songs you want to play on your psp to the MUSIC Folder on the memory stick duo when you connect it to your computer in USB mode. if you want to play WMA format songs, navigate to system settings and select the ACTIVATE WINDOWS MEDIA AUDIO(WMA), make sure you are in a wireless hotspot to connect to the internet to activate WMA playback.

Can't download pictures


The first step is to make sure that you have a Memory Stick Duo in your PSP and, if necessary, format the Memory Stick with the PSP itself (go to Home, then Settings, then scroll down to System Settings and use the 'X' button to select this option, then scroll down to Format Memory Stick and select the option). You'll only have to do that once.
Next, take the USB cable and hook one end into the PSP on the top middle edge and the other end into your PC.
Now, using the Settings menu, choose USB Connect and your PC should shortly see your PSP as a removable drive.
The very first time I did this on my Windows XP system, the OS installed some new drivers, then promptly told me it had to reboot for the device to be mounted on the system:
f2a3054.jpg So, logically, I did just that, and when it rebooted the device showed up as Removable Disk G:, as shown here on My Computer:
84b8747.jpg Double click the new drive and you'll find that there's only one folder therein, called PSP. Double click in that and you'll find that you have four folders that the format has created:
82df731.jpg Looking good! Now if you have MP3 music files, you can drag and drop them into the MUSIC folder (and if they're in the wrong audio file format, please see How to convert WMA audio files into MP3 audio files), and JPEG (or, sometimes, JPG) photographs or graphics, you can download them into the PHOTO folder. Once you've done that, perusing the PHOTO folder, for example, will reveal that your pictures are loaded and ready to use:
ebed3a5.jpg That's about all you need to do, believe it or not. Copy any music or graphic files you want into the appropriate folders, then when you're done move back up to the list of "Devices with Removable Storage", click on the PSP removable disk and choose Eject.
(Actually, sometimes when I do this step Windows XP refuses to eject the disk, complaining that "An error was encountered trying to eject 'Removable Disk (G:)' but I've found if I ignore the error and just unplug the PSP, all is well)
Now, to view downloaded pictures on your PSP, move to the Photo area. You'll see one item shown: "Memory Stick" and an indication of how much free space you still have on your Memory Stick Duo. Click on that by pressing the 'x' button and... poof! You'll see all your photos listed. Click on any and you'll get a nice full-screen view.
To listen to the songs you've downloaded, go to Music, click through the "Memory Stick" information, and you'll see a list of MP3 files. Click on any of them to have them play.

Usb cable


Just like sorta of add-on to szwaan's answer:

You must have a memory stick to put music into your psp such as mp3 files, the psp itself does not have any internal memory for you to store any music files whatsoever.

if you got a memory stick already, connect your psp to your computer via usb cable, select usb under the setting section of your psp, and the memory stick drive will appear in your "my computer", so you can drag your music into the Music folder of your memory stick and play them from your psp.
