Re: can't convert psp files

You need an mp3 conversion programme like Nero, or media player 10 can convert your cd's to mp3 in the rip tab. but what it doesn't tell you in the instuctions is that you should make a new folder called music in the psp folders window when it pops up showing whats saved on your psp. Make sure you have a decent size duo memory card fitted as this is where the songs will be saved; not on the psp itself. But in your psp settings make sure you have selected USB connection or it wont connect and show anything on your pc. select your mp3 file on your pc, copy it and then go to the music folder you made open it up and then select paste, it will then go into the folder and then should show up in the music menu in the psp after you have disconnected the usb lead. the same applies to video or any other file you wish to put on the psp.

How do you install and play games on the psp from the memory card?

If your psp has the latest firmware update, especially 3001 or Psp Go models, then you cannot download and install 3rd party downloaded software (iso or cso files)

Sony has improved on their copy protection platforms and at this time does not allow homebrew to run on the psp. this can be done with chickHEN (google it), apparently, though I have not yet tried it, as it will use resources to run it.

But, if you go to Playstation Network and purchase/download games/videoes/etc.. they can be downloaded from either a Playstation 3 (if you ownl one),
or a pc. Also you can access PSN psp downloads directly on the psp and download games directly, install them onto your memory stick pro duo or pro duo hg, etc..
memory card. there are thourough instructions on the site as well. Also, if you are using your PC to transfer files, download the Media Go software for the psp from sony.

Here is the link for Media Go Software (download for free).

There ya have it.

Also, please check your card reader if it supports Memory Stick Pro Duo.

If you already have an adaptor but still doesn’t work, you can buy a PSP USB data cable to transfer files between your computer and PSP.

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 before you transfer your files to ensure that you are adding files which are Viewable/Readable by The PSP's software.

Hope this helps !?

How can I download video files from my PC into my PSP?

First of all make sure that the movies you want to transfer are of the Mpeg4 format. For info on how to convert different files into the correct format follow this link : Choose the movie icon from the main menu, insert a UMD or a Memory Stick Duo, a new icon will show up. Choose the icon and press the X button. The movie should now play. In order to download the movie into the Memory Stick Duo you have 3 options: 1. use a computer with a Memory Stick slot. 2. use a compatible USB cable. 3. use an external Memory Stick reader with a USB connection. Note that the PSP cannot read files converted in a rate higher then 768 KBPS. Good luck
