Re: Format error in mp3 player

You posted an iPod question in the PSP section. I recommend posting your question in the iPod section of the site.

Also, please re-word your question to be more clear. It's hard to understand what your exact problem is from the description.

I try to put videos on this RCA opal mp3 i got at walmart and i just need some help!!!!!!

Have you converted the videos to the right format for your player?
A lot of players have issues when trying to play standard file formats like WMV, AVI etc.
Look on your installation CD for some converter software, if it came with one, otherwise you could get a free converter online.
Hope that helps.
Cheers from NZ

I loaded songs to an sd cad - my computer will play them from the sd card - but when i put the sd card into my nintendo dsi xl,press the sd icon on ds - the screen says "cannot find any music...

hello, Computers can play any audio formats (ex:- MP3) if you have right codecs installed, but the Nintendo is made to play music in AAC audio format only.
so you need find a program to convert your music.for example the music files are in MP3 format you will need to find a program that converts MP3 to AAC format.

How can i get my vedio clips onto my psp i tried getting it by formating my memory stick i tried converters and stuff i tried to make a mp_root folder on my psp and get vedios into it but it was of no use...


  1. First, make sure that the video you have is in mp4 format. You can download converters like xilisoft to convert your video files.
  2. Connect your PSP to your computer, and if you see folders names like these (act, codepage, config, data, dic, font, kd, vsh), it means that you need to configure your PSP settings and proceed to steps 3 and 4. But if you see folders names like (iso, mp_root, music, picture, psp, video), go to step 5.
  3. One way is: Hold down select for 5 seconds, go to USB Device and select Memory Stick. Then Exit.
  4. The other is to completely shutdown the PSP. Hold down the R Trigger while turning it on. Go to Configuration and choose "Memory Stick" for XMB Usb Device. Hit Back and Exit.
  5. Create a folder named "Video" if don't have one yet. Transfer you mp4 videos into that folder. Exit and view your videos on your PSP.

Cant download music

try NOT going through media player as it tries to convert any audio. keep your files as mp3. preferably stored in "My music" file on your computer. then when you connect your psp via USB go to "open folder to view files" then open psp/music file. leave it open and open a "My computer" window my documents/my music, then just click and drag to psp/music file.

How can I download video files from my PC into my PSP?

First of all make sure that the movies you want to transfer are of the Mpeg4 format. For info on how to convert different files into the correct format follow this link : Choose the movie icon from the main menu, insert a UMD or a Memory Stick Duo, a new icon will show up. Choose the icon and press the X button. The movie should now play. In order to download the movie into the Memory Stick Duo you have 3 options: 1. use a computer with a Memory Stick slot. 2. use a compatible USB cable. 3. use an external Memory Stick reader with a USB connection. Note that the PSP cannot read files converted in a rate higher then 768 KBPS. Good luck
