Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console

1 Answer

Music will not play and files cannot be deleted...

Ok, I finally got this thing and I have a 1 gig memory card-when I sync'd 'music files' from my windows media player and went to the music screen on the psp, it says that all the tracks are '0' (zero) and they won't play. Some are in mp3 format, others in .wma. I also cannot delete the files, so its wasting up my memory stick! Someone PLEASE help. :( thank you!

I have a sony psp. I have music stored on a small

corrupted data usually means just that corrupted data and usually won't let you play em at all. you may want to retransfer the files again... and after that if that didn't fix the problem reformat the new memory stick.

what you describe should have been fine. files just might have been corrupted from moving over from one to the other. is it for every song or just one? you could try this without the media go. i have an older firmware since i haven't upgraded my psp in awhile... but

1)on the desktop of your pc create a folder called pspmusic. right click on any blank spot on your desktop>go to new>folder> and rename that to pspmusic

2)plug in your psp to your computer like you normally do using the usb cable.


4)go to your music folder and copy everything in that folder to the pspmusic folder you created on your desktop on your pc in step 1.

5)once that done close that window down.
remove your old smaller memory stick from your psp and insert the new bigger one and connect it to your pc in the normal way.

6)go to the drive of the psp and to the music folder (if there isn't a music folder there create one) and open it. what you may want to do here is to delete all things in there or keep as is. just know that if there is a corrupt file in there you'll have the same problem. this is up to you for you can try this again later.

7)now go to the pspmusic folder on your desktop and copy all the music in that folder and bring it over to your music folder on your psp.

8)once everything has transfered over test it out and see if all works

its a bit more hands on than using media go but at least you see what is happening.

if that didn't work you may want to try formatting your new bigger memory stick

My music doesnt work when i sync it to my do i put music on my psp?

You must have a memory stick in your PSP to add music or pictures to it.

When I connect my PSP to my computer with USB or pull the memory stick out and stick it in a card reader, I can copy music directly into the (drive letter):\MUSIC directory. Then when I disconnect the PSP or reinsert the memory card into it, the music is there to play.

PSP can't read my memory stick and LAN light is flashing.

is it just the one movie that wont play or have you tried music and game saves?
a few things to check
1 is the memory card showing magic gate supported
2 check if the card shows 15.?gb with nothing on it
3 try loading the card with 15gb of music and pictures

i bought a 16gb pro duo memory card from ebay that was a 4gb card showing in the psp as 15.4gb but corrupted every thing after 4gb.
if you also find that the card is only taking between 4-8gb of data contact ebay as this is likely a fake card.

Go to the manufacturers web site and download the latest OS files to put them in your memory card root. That would fix the problemand you should have updated files.
In the case of the games, music and other files in the card before the deletion you must get them again and put one by one in the memory. By the way if that was a complete deletion any game saved file is lost.

The music I put in my psp doesnt work

Make sure you have it in the "MUSIC"(all in caps) folder within the PSP folder of your Memory Stick.

Inside the Memory Stick's PSP's MUSIC folder, you should either have the song file itself(mp3 or wma) or no more than one folder.

Memory Stick>PSP>MUSIC>Gwen Stefani>Don't Speak.mp3
or simply
Memory Stick>PSP>MUSIC>Don't Speak.mp3
