I what to dowuload game form pc to my pspgame so how can i do it pls


Here are the steps to follow:

1) Insert a Memory Stick into the Memory Stick slot in the left side of the PSP. Depending on how many files you want it to hold, you may need to get a larger one than the stick that came with your system.

2) Turn on the PSP.

3) Plug a USB cable into the back of the PSP and into your PC or Mac. The USB cable needs to have a Mini-B connector on one end (this plugs into the PSP), and a standard USB connector on the other (this plugs into the computer).

4) Scroll to the "Settings" icon on the home menu of your PSP.

5) Find the "USB Connection" icon in the "Settings" menu. Press the X button. Your PSP will display the words "USB Mode" and your PC or Mac will recognize it as a USB storage device.

6) Create a folder called "PSP" on the PSP Memory Stick (if there isn't one already) -- it shows up as "Portable Storage Device" or something similar -- (you can use Windows Explorer on a PC, or Finder on a Mac). There should also be a folder called "MP_ROOT" (not inside the "PSP" folder).

7) If they aren't there already, create folders called "PHOTO" and "MUSIC" inside the "PSP" folder. There also should be a folder called "100MNV01" inside the "MP_ROOT" folder.

8) Drag and drop files into the folders just as you would save files in another folder on your computer. Image files go in the "PHOTO" folder, audio files go in the "MUSIC" folder, and video files go in the "100MNV01" folder.

9) Disconnect your PSP by first clicking on "Safely Remove Hardware" on the bottom menu bar of a PC, or by "ejecting" the drive on the Mac (drag the icon into the trash). Then unplug the USB cable and press the circle button to return to the home menu.

This should help you to move those files.

My psp works really good but when i try to play games or movies it starts to slow down and flicker


1. Set “UMD Mode” to M33 driver NO UMD
The PSP firmware version was 3.71 M33 but is also tested with higher versions like 3.8 M33. These firmware versions should have the UMD mode to M33 NO UMD.

To set the following you need to go to the Configuration Page. To go there you need to:
i. Turn off your PSP
ii. Press and hold the R button. While doing that slide and hold the power button up. This would turn on your PSP. You should hold until the black screen appears saying “M33 Recovery Menu Configuration”
iii. If the PSP just turns on to the normal menu, just repeat the two steps above.

2. Set “Use VshMenu” to Disabled.
It is also in the configuration page. Use the steps above and you should be able to find it.
Now after these two steps, if you continue no further, your PS would run faster – but only for the menu screen. The menu would be fast and really responsive. However, try playing a game. You would notice that loading is still slow and the gameplay is still played in slow motion


3. Set the CPU speed to Default.
Now this is really important. The CPU may not really be used when playing music or in the menu screen but its very important when you play games.
There are two settings you need to adjust. Speed in XMB and Speed in UMD/ISO. For us normal users we just need to set these two to “Default”.
After this, your PSP should be running ok. However, I recommend that you do another step which would also help the performance of your PSP.

4. Free up memory from your Memory Stick.
You can do this using two methods. One, you could connect your PSP to your PC using a USB cable. Two, you could remove your memory stick and use a card reader. I prefer the second method but you may use any of the two.


Method Two: Remove your memory stick and use a card reader.
Freeing up memory is easy, if you know what files to remove. As my friend is not really using her PSP for music and videos, majority of her files are game files. What she does is that she just puts games that she really plays. I recommend doing the same for your PSP.
Game files are located at the folder named “ISO”. The game files have a .CSO file name extension. You don’t need to delete them. Just transfer them to your hard disk. That way, when you want to play them again, you just have to transfer them back to your memory stick.
But if you have music and video files that take up much space, I recommend that you look into those first. Normally you would like to have at least 500MB of free disk space. You’d need the space for your game saves.

My friends have done the steps above with ease and have solved their slow PSP problems. Most of them, if not all, had to do all four mentioned above. The first three usually solves the problem.

How to put music on psp?


You need a memory card for your psp, as well as a usb cable....plug the usb into your pc and go to system settings in the psp and turn on usb mode (your computer should recognise the psp as an external drive in the MY COMPUTER window) open the drive. Open the file called PSP and look for a file called MUSIC, open it then copy your music files to this folder......If you do not see a psp file on the memory stick duo just save a game to it from the psp.....this will create the folders you need, then repeat my instructional...Good Luck

Connect a USB Cable.


do a full power off on the PSP, ie hold the power button for 5 seconds until it properly turns off. a short slide of the power button only puts it in standby mode.

also (on the PSP) check under Settings > USB Auto Connect (ON) - ensure this is enabled. makes it easy to connect USB with this turned on. but you need an up to date firmware on the PSP for this setting.

still no go?
try and restart the computer and plug the PSP back in once you have your desktop up.

I'm trying to download music from my computer to the PSP.


Hi osbornangel,

Based on your concern, I suggest trying the following steps:

1. Connect the PSP to your PC with a USB cable.
2. Press the "home" button on the PSP
--> at the lower left of the screen you can see the home button.
3. Use the left-right directional buttons to find "Settings", then the up-down buttons to find "USB Connection" on the PSP.
4. Press the "X" button, your PSP should display "USB Connection".
5. Please wait until your computer tells you that a new USB device has been connected, then show you a new generic hard drive, usually E: or F:
6. Click on the drive letter that corresponds to the PSP unit.
7. Now create a new folder on that drive and name it "psp".
8. Within the new "psp" folder create another folder, and name it "music".
9. Copy your desired mp3 files into the new "music" folder.
10. When you're done copying your desired music tracks, press the "O" button on the PSP to get out of USB connect mode.

To play the music, 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!

Hope it helps,

Thank you for using FixYa.

Cant get computer to recognize the psp


First, make sure the music you are wanting is in mp3 format

Hook up your Sony PSP to your computer via a USB cable. Turn on the PSP and put it in "USB CONNECT" mode (it should display the words "USB CONNECT" on the PSP display during the entire time you're transferring files, and plug it in if you don't have a fully charged battery).
If your computer complains that you are connecting a high-speed USB device on a low-speed USB port, try unplugging it (which is to say, take your PSP out of "USB CONNECT" mode, then unplug the cable from the PSP) and plugging it into a different USB port. Somewhere on your computer you have a higher-speed port, which you should certainly use if you can. If not, or if you can't figure out which port is USB 2.0, then you should be able to safely ignore the warning message and proceed anyway. Once you rehook up your PSP, do make sure you remember to put it back into "USB CONNECT" mode).
Your PC or Mac should just magically show a new removable hard disk on the desktop (or, if needed, go to My Computer to find it). On a Mac it'll probably show up as a device called "Removable Drive", but on a PC it can show up as drive E:, F:, G: or whatever else is the next available drive name on your computer. If it doesn't show up and you're running Windows XP, then you might need to search for the proper driver, which is hopefully an option. If you're running an earlier version of Windows, you're kinda on your own because earlier versions don't support pluggable hard drives. There's an untested Windows98 driver you can download from Interia.pl, but I haven't heard from anyone whether it actually works or not.
Once your PSP shows up on your computer, you should be able to navigate the different directories to find a folder called MUSIC. That's where you want to drag and drop your MP3 files, so do so now, realizing that each music file typically takes up 2-3MB of space, so the default 32MB Memory Stick Duo that came with the Sony PSP is only going to be able to hold about one CD of music before it's full, and that's assuming you don't have any game saves on it. Instead, you might consider buying a bigger Memory Stick: I have a 512MB one that gives me plenty of space and it didn't cost much (Amazon.com, for example, sells this funky green 512MB PSP-compatible Memory Stick for less than $40, with free shipping).
(If you don't have a "MUSIC" folder on your PSP then you might need to have the PSP unit itself reformat the memory stick (rather than your PC) so that all of the folders are setup properly.)

Once you've copied your music files onto your Sony PSP device, you should be done. Take the PSP out of "USB CONNECT" mode, then unplug the cables, hook up headphones so you can hear the PSP audio, and then go to the MUSIC area on the PSP.
One of the items listed in "MUSIC" is something called Memory Stick. Your songs are in that folder. To get to them, move the highlight bar to "Memory Stick" and press the "X" button:

You can see the "X button on this photo: it's the lowest of the four buttons on the right side control area.
You should then move into the Memory Stick music area and see all of your MP3 files. Click on one to play it!
Hopefully these detailed instructions will help you avoid tossing your PSP out the window. If not, well, let me know when you'll be tossing it and maybe I can catch it and use it as another test device. :-)
