Re: PSP - Unsupported Data

What this means is that the "Fornat" ie:the Coding & extension, is not recognised by the PSP as a "Valid" format. What you have to do is use a convertor that converts and correcrly names the files extension. Please find below sites to help with conversion to the correct file types.

It say not supported what to do

#1 - If its a video that has an unsupported file format for the PSP, It will never play until you convert it to a supported format. For ex: the notebook.mkv, ironman.avi, etc... Look for free video converters for PSP on google, I'm pretty sure you will find one. Process is the same for music.

#2 - If its a downloaded game, you will need to flash your PSP console in order to play it (Research in google, you will find some useful information). Flashing enables all kinds of games (downloaded), Be WARNED, flashing can really hurt your system if you don't know what you are doing. It can even cause your system to be unusable.

My PSP 3000 chickHEN is not functioning properly. Everytime I try fixing it, the last image says "unsupported data" and it wont recover any of my PSP games. I tried installing a new one but...

try using a ChickHen installer software from PC aside from running it from your PSP. Running ChickHen in PSP slim 3000 series may take several attempts. If you successfully run ChickHen, turning your PSP off (by long pressing the power switch) will revert your PSP to OFW and you need to run ChickHen again, that's why standby is always preferable for these PSP versions. CFW in these versions are considered SemiHa*k and, as said, turning PSP off will revert to OFW.
Good luck...

How to download movies

To watch a downloaded movie, clip or any other video on your PSP, you need to:

1. Get your video converted to MP4 format. PSP supports MP4 and .H264 (MP4 part 10, AAC).

There are many free programs that convert your videos into the MP4 format that your PSP likes.
2. Please ensure to set audio frequency to 24000Hz (24Khz). If you set it to 48Khz PSP will not play saying "unsupported data".
3. Transfer it to your PSP and Enjoy!
There is a complete guide, with free video for download at:

Psp video playback

Hi. The PSP only plays a limited number of video formats; I think off hand MP4 is one. It will not play AVI formatted files, the most common type on PC for downloading.Check the file type of the movie you are trying to watch, by right-clicking on the file on your PC then selecting 'properties'. It should say there. Also holding the cursor over the file for a few seconds should show you the file info. I am unsure how to convert between video formats, you might be able to download something online that will do that for you.

My psp video

search in google for (WinAVI MP4 Converter).
the out put file should be two file's.
the video name should be (M4V20001 and continue M4V20002, M4V20003, M4V20004).
if not you should name it.
the other file name should be (M4V20001.THM and continue M4V20002.THM, M4V20003.THM, M4V20004.THM)
the same here if not you should name it too.

IVC help

Well the problem with the MP4's is that for each device it uses a different encoder. Basically what i'm trying to say is that you would find it better to get another converter and the one that you should get since you use u torrent would be ImTOO MP4 Video Converter i have used it before and it works perfectly for everything except mkv. The torrent that you need to get would be this one
just click on the link and once you are there click on the download torrent and you will get it as soon as you get a few seeds and peers. Hope it works
