It's not too hard to transfer files from your Windows PC to your
Sony PSP, but here's the trick: the "PSP Value Pack" doesn't have
everything that you need. Not so good. In fact, you'll want to add a
larger Memory Stick Duo, for example, because 32MB just isn't much
space at all, when you come down to it.
The other missing piece in the Value Pack is the USB cable that lets
you connect your Sony PSP to your Windows PC and, of course, vice
versa. Fortunately, these are pretty easy to find - anywhere that
carries Sony digital cameras should have the right USB cable, or you
can try somewhere like Froogle
to find a cable. I did a quick search and found this $7.95 cable
from one store.
To get everything working, plug the Sony PSP into the Windows PC via
USB cable, plug the PSP into the wall, then turn both units on. On the
PSP, click the "USB Connection" button (on the Settings menu) and,
hopefully, your PC will beep and tell you that it's found a new
"removable disk": your PSP.
Using Windows Explorer, find the new PSP device and if there isn't already a folder called PHOTO
on it, create one as you ordinarily would create a folder in Windows.
Now just drop in any JPEG images you'd like to have viewable on your
PSP while on the go.
Music-wise, you'll want to create a folder called MUSIC
drop in MP3 format music files (which means that you can't play music
you get from the Apple iTunes Store, for example, because that's in a
I hope that'll get you going with this process. It doesn't seem too hard!
