Music n Videos Problem for PSP

I can put them onto the PSP like people have said in previous threads but it doesn't seem to come up onto the PSP. Doesn't show that they are there. The space for the Music/Videos has gone which means its saying they're on the PSP but i cant find them.

Re: Music n Videos Problem for PSP

(1) It may depend on the firmware version of your PSP.
1. If the version is before 3.0, it seems that you have to make a directory named “MP_ROOT\100MNV01” under the root directory. Before you put your videos into that directory, you need to rename them like “M4V*****.MP4” (***** means five random numbers).
2. If the version is after 3.0, putting the videos into “VIDEO” document under root directory is OK. If there were no “VIDEO” document, just create one.
Actually if the videos you want to put into your PSP are not MP4 format, you need 3rd party software normally called video converter to do conversion. I prefer to use Aimersoft PSP Converter Suite to do that job for it supports various video formats to be converted. You can find it on:
Hope to help you.

Re: Music n Videos Problem for PSP

Hi Kiki07,

i do not have the manual in from of me and will not for a day or so.  Although from memory, I know that you have to save the Video under as a modified Filename. Save them to the apporriate folder and rename them "MV4filename", Where filename is your videos name. You merely add MV4 to the front end of all the Video filenames.

Dont kno how to put music and videos in my psp

Putting music or videos on the PSP is a fairly simple and straightforward process.

What you'll need:
  • a mini USB to USB cable (to connect the PSP to the computer)
  • a memory stick (to store your music and videos)
  1. Put the memory stick in the PSP.
  2. Connect the PSP with the mini USB to USB cable to the computer
  3. On the PSP, go to the settings menu and select "USB Connection."
  4. Your computer should recognize that a device has been connected to it, open up the device (your PSP) inside a file viewer, such as windows explorer. There should be a few folders here one named Video and one named Music.
  5. Add the music and video files to these folders, and press O(circle) on the PSP to end the USB Connection.
  6. If all has gone right, and the files are the correct formats, you should be able to enjoy your music and videos on your PSP.

Do you have a usb cable to connect the psp to the computer? If you son't the it's useless trying. And if you do, when you connect it to your computer it should appear as a removable disk. Just double click and put the music in the music folder and the videos in the video folder.

Hope this helps.

  1. on the PSP go to settings -> USB connection
  2. Go to my computer, a new removeable drive should appear after a few seconds
  3. put music files in the MUSIC folder and videos in the VIDEO folder (or create them yourself if needed)
  4. go back to the menu on the psp, you should be able to watch/listen to the files you added

Note: The psp does not support all video and music file formats
so you may have to convert them if they wont run

You can also get programs like "psp video 9" which can automatically convert videos for you and put them in the correct folders.
