You need to have wireless internet/router connect to modem(adsl/dsl/cable modems) no dialup .When you have the wireless connection set it up in the internet settings and select the setting to be on automatic and then go and enable WMA playback and then it will download and you should be able to play wma. Another alternative is to use an audio converter such as dbamp or sound forge?(use google)

Hi can u help me enable wma playback

In order to enable WMA playback, you'll have to first connect your PSP to a wireless network using the wireless configuration utility in Options. Then, go back into Options and select Enable WMA Playback. From there, the PSP should do everything else automatically.

Yeah its like that because you aren't saving your settings.

How to enable wma format

The only way to activate wma on the psp (without hacking it) is to connect it to a wifi hotspot. It takes fewer than 20 seconds and costs nothing. Do this just one time and you're set for the life of the psp.

Enable wma playback

Hello irie8,

According to PSP system software update 2.60 allow the PSP to be able to play WMA files. So if you have all the latest system file updates on your PSP, you should be able to play WMA files. However here is the link I found to be very helpful.

I hope this information was helpful.

Cannot Enable WMA Playback

what ever you do, DO NOT RESET SETTINGS cause then you just have to reset them and it wont do you any good. I had the same problem. The most lodgicall way to solve this is just to spend like 3 bucks at mcdonalds and get the wifi so you can play online multiplayer, go on the internet, and fix the wma feature. Or you could just free load off of a friends wifi or wirless setup. But you may have to enter a security code.

First of all, an aoss button is for wireless play. As for the wma songs, they need to be converted to mp3 format for better quality and to work.
