Which types of games format will run

I prefer converting video formats with Format Factory. A free software that provides the MPEG-4 formats required for the PSP. Just make sure the MPEG-4 file is H.264 and not DiRX. Format factory also lets you change MPEG-4 into H.264 MPEG-4 as well. Good Luck.

oh my gosh. this is sooo ********. i have a mac and i cant get any videos to play on my psp. they just say "corrupted data". ive tried basically every format. what does sony have against apple? im so ******...

Took me 2 weeks of testing free software and just frustration cause this software I suppose works for older PSP operating systems, but it does not work with PSP purchased in 2011, I believe operating sys version 6.37.
I found something what does work, but it is not free. For $30 which is basically a price of just one UMD movie, Instal, try and if you like it, pay for full version. Put your movies in "Video" folder on sony stick.

My w850i can't read memory card

to make sure the problem please insert ur mem stick to external card reader, if it can read ur mem stick so ur phone card reader had a problem and i think its hardware problem, but sometimes when system files(hidden files) in the mem stick is missing can make the same problem, so u better insert ur memstick to the same device that worked to really make sure the problem is (ur memstick or ur phone card reader), and u also can try to insert the memstick from that worked device to ur phone (just make sure problem solution) :)

When i try and play a song it says: "playback failed". What is the solution to solve this problem in W200I mobile

if suddenly your mobile option you, "Playback failed", that means the phone can not locate the file where it was placed, mostly this problem prisist, when you are using low quality 1 GB memory stick, then it is understood that the file which is bieng played, is moved or the phone is unable to locate the desired file.
mostly for such memory sticks phone lost the files, its solution is remove the memory stick and restart the phone or try formating the memory stick several time from the phone.
