SOURCE: unable to enable WMA playback on my psp.

you need to make sure that you are close to a wifi router, that your WLAN switch is on and that you either know the password, or there is no pass word to the system. then its as simple as finding the connection,and having it connect or pair, so that its automatic next time, and go to settings and enable wma playback and flash( also handy to have enabled) please leave rating

How to play wma files on desktop?

Do you have the music files in the PSP music folder. If not, it will not read that there are any files there. Do you have the latest update? If so, under the system settings, there is an option that says, Enable WMA playback. Turn this on. If this doesn't help, you can either get the same music in MP3 format, as the PSP system has no problem with, or transcode said WMA files into MP3 format. There are many programs you can get to do this, but the simplest way is to use any multimedia player on your PC and rip said music files in MP3 format, as they will allow for said selection, then move them to the Music folder on your PSP memory stick.

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.

If you running on a custom firmware, you can go to recovery mode and activate it in the registry hack sub menu.

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.
