STEP 1: CONNECT YOUR PSP TO PC
The PSP can function as a USB Memory Stick Duo reader. Using this
functionality, you can copy pictures, audio, and other content to and
from your Memory Stick Duo. To access the Memory Stick Duo in your PSP
from your PC, you'll need a USB cable that has a "Mini-B" connector
(common for digital cameras) and a "Standard-A" connector (common for
printers, etc). Plug the Mini-B side into the top of your PSP and the
Standard-A side into your PC. From the PSP software, navigate to the
top of the settings list and select "USB Connection." Your PC
(Windows/Mac/Linux) should detect a new "Removable Disk Drive" that you
can then access.
STEP 2: FORMAT YOUR MEMORY STICK
In order to be able to use your new memory stick on your PSP, you'll
have to format it. When you format your memory stick, the formatting
will create a set of new folders on your PSP: GAME, MUSIC, PHOTO, and
STEP 3: EXTRACT THE SAVED GAME
This process will greatly depend on which software you use to extract
zip files. WinRAR for instance offers the "extract here" option, which
will simply extract the contents of a zip file to it's current
STEP 4: TRANSFER SAVE GAME TO "SAVEDATA" FOLDER
Just copy the folder you have just extracted, and paste it into the
PSP's "SAVEDATA" folder. But, BEWARE!, to any folder overwrite
warnings! Because the PSP save game folders use the same names for the
same games, copying folders into these locations could lead to lost
data. For this reason, we recommend that you backup your old save games
before overwriting them. For Example, I would simply rename a folder
like "ULPS0004" to "ULPS0004_backup."
STEP 5: EXIT USB MODE
Because your PSP has been in USB Mode throughout this process, just
push X to exit. Then you can safely disconnect your PSP from your PC.
STEP 6: VERIFY TRANSFER OF SAVE DATA
To verify the integrity of the SAVE GAME data you have just
transferred, use the PSP's built-in Save Data Utility. Select it from
the "Game" menu.
That's it, simple and smooth.
