Dont kno how to put music and videos in my psp

Putting music or videos on the PSP is a fairly simple and straightforward process.

What you'll need:
  • a mini USB to USB cable (to connect the PSP to the computer)
  • a memory stick (to store your music and videos)
  1. Put the memory stick in the PSP.
  2. Connect the PSP with the mini USB to USB cable to the computer
  3. On the PSP, go to the settings menu and select "USB Connection."
  4. Your computer should recognize that a device has been connected to it, open up the device (your PSP) inside a file viewer, such as windows explorer. There should be a few folders here one named Video and one named Music.
  5. Add the music and video files to these folders, and press O(circle) on the PSP to end the USB Connection.
  6. If all has gone right, and the files are the correct formats, you should be able to enjoy your music and videos on your PSP.

I cannot download images or songs (mp3). please help I've went to usb mode, connected perfectly, transfer images etc over but when I look on the psp they are not there.

You need to make a file called Music in your memory card,I'll explain.
Plug you PSP into the computer go to computer and look at connected devices find the PSPs memory card,and simply open it,don't bother going into any other folders,right click and hover over New and select folder,call it music.Although the PSP has a Music tab it needs music from the memory card.I don't know what's wrong with your images though, so, sorry.

* Make sure you have inserted a memory stick, and enable the usb connection via settings=>usb connection

* Check the usb cable, or simply find another one to try if it works.

* If there is a memory stick inside the psp and the psp can recognize it, then you most probably have a problem with your cable or usb port.

* if there is a memory stick inside the psp and the psp cannot recognize it, as well as the computer, then you are most likely to have a failure with your memory card.

There are too many possibilities, maybe you can give me details straightaway, so more people can help you.

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.

Downloading music from computer

easy. plug in the USB cable into your PSP and the other (big) end into your computer. on the PSP home menu, go all the way to the right and select USB mode. YOU NEED A MEMORY CARD INSERTED. click open and explore files if somthing pops up on your computer. if not, go to my computer, then memory stick K (or what ever letter your compute shows). then if its not already there, make a new folder and call it MUSIC

then drag and drop / copy and paste your songs into that folder.

How to uplord music

First of all format your Memory card in your PSP only so after format it will automatically create folders MP_Root and PSP. and in PSP folder itself there will be a subfolder named Game,Music,Video. in this music folder you can copy your Audio MP3 file by connecting your PSP to computer through USB Data Cable, and for playing downloaded games through memory card let me know your PSP software version is it compatiable or not?
