Re: music

You can also enable WMA playback to do this go to: settings - system settings - enable wma playback (internet connection required) or if your running custom firmware boot your psp while pressing the R button then go to registry hacks - enable wma playback

Re: music

First of all, an aoss button is for wireless play. As for the wma songs, they need to be converted to mp3 format for better quality and to work.

Cant download songs,movies,from macbook to psp

here are the steps you'll need to go through to get your music to download successful from your Windows PC to your new Sony PSP unit:
  1. Connect the PSP to your PC with a USB cable. (about $10: buy a USB cable for your PSP)
  2. Press the "home" button on the PSP (it's a tiny button to the lower left of the screen) then use the left-right directional buttons to find "Settings", then the up-down buttons to find "USB Connection" on the PSP.
  3. Press the "X" button (you got it, the round button with the "X" on it) and your PSP should display "USB Connection".
  4. In a moment or two your computer should tell you that a new USB device has been connected, then show you a new generic hard drive, usually E: or F:
  5. Click on the drive letter that corresponds to the PSP unit.
  6. Now create a new folder on that drive and name it "psp".
  7. Within the new "psp" folder create another folder, and name it "music".
  8. Copy your desired mp3 files into the new "music" folder.
  9. When you're done copying your desired music tracks, press the "O" button on the PSP to get out of USB connect mode.
Now you're ready to go! Use the left-right arrows to move to the music area, then the up-down arrows to find "Memory Stick". Chose that folder by pressing the "X" button again, and you should be able to find all your favorite music!
Note that the PSP running older firmware (firmware is the "operating system" of the PSP) does not support any Windows Media formats i.e WMA & WMV, so any music you have in that format must be converted to MP3 before copying to your PSP. Fortunately, Sony's very own Image Converter 2.1 can convert all your music with a very simple GUi and will then also manage all the measuring and transfering for you too.
If Image Converter doesn't seem up to snuff, then there are various other solutions for converting audio files, including the free Windows application
If you really want to play WMA format audio files, make sure you have the latest version of the firmware from Sony (see below for update instructions).

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.

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.
online manual for psp: click on the link.
Good Luck.

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.
