Re: down loadin music

I would personally recom' you to not use the PSP media manager, you should use the explorer of windows os directly to transfer your music to your psp.

Well, for audio cd ripping, you can use many free softwares, for instance, foobar with proper pluggins install can do the right job for you.

Im having trouble putting music on my psp

Hi drew_haker,
Please be reminded that PSP is compatible with these Audio formats: MP3, AAC and WMA. If you have these file formats, putting music on your PSP will be so easy for you. Here are the procedures you can follow in transferring your music files:
1. Using USB cable connect your PSP to your computer.
2. On your PSP, press HOME button.
3. Then choose SETTINGS, afterwards USB CONNECTION.
4. Just 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:.
5. Now, double click on your MUSIC folder and just drag your music files from your PC going to the said folder. If you haven't created MUSIC folder just create one, to organize the files.
6. Once done copying your desired music tracks, press the "O" button to disconnect PSP from PC.
To play your music, just go to the music icon. Look for "Memory Stick" and you should be able to find all your favorite music!
Hope it helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Can't download pictures

The first step is to make sure that you have a Memory Stick Duo in your PSP and, if necessary, format the Memory Stick with the PSP itself (go to Home, then Settings, then scroll down to System Settings and use the 'X' button to select this option, then scroll down to Format Memory Stick and select the option). You'll only have to do that once.
Next, take the USB cable and hook one end into the PSP on the top middle edge and the other end into your PC.
Now, using the Settings menu, choose USB Connect and your PC should shortly see your PSP as a removable drive.
The very first time I did this on my Windows XP system, the OS installed some new drivers, then promptly told me it had to reboot for the device to be mounted on the system:
f2a3054.jpg So, logically, I did just that, and when it rebooted the device showed up as Removable Disk G:, as shown here on My Computer:
84b8747.jpg Double click the new drive and you'll find that there's only one folder therein, called PSP. Double click in that and you'll find that you have four folders that the format has created:
82df731.jpg Looking good! Now if you have MP3 music files, you can drag and drop them into the MUSIC folder (and if they're in the wrong audio file format, please see How to convert WMA audio files into MP3 audio files), and JPEG (or, sometimes, JPG) photographs or graphics, you can download them into the PHOTO folder. Once you've done that, perusing the PHOTO folder, for example, will reveal that your pictures are loaded and ready to use:
ebed3a5.jpg That's about all you need to do, believe it or not. Copy any music or graphic files you want into the appropriate folders, then when you're done move back up to the list of "Devices with Removable Storage", click on the PSP removable disk and choose Eject.
(Actually, sometimes when I do this step Windows XP refuses to eject the disk, complaining that "An error was encountered trying to eject 'Removable Disk (G:)' but I've found if I ignore the error and just unplug the PSP, all is well)
Now, to view downloaded pictures on your PSP, move to the Photo area. You'll see one item shown: "Memory Stick" and an indication of how much free space you still have on your Memory Stick Duo. Click on that by pressing the 'x' button and... poof! You'll see all your photos listed. Click on any and you'll get a nice full-screen view.
To listen to the songs you've downloaded, go to Music, click through the "Memory Stick" information, and you'll see a list of MP3 files. Click on any of them to have them play.

More seriously, here are the steps you'll need to go through to get your music to download successful from your Windows PC to your new Sony PSP unit:

  1. Connect the PSP to your PC with a USB cable. (about $10: buy a USB cable for your PSP)
  2. Press the "home" button on the PSP (it's a tiny button to the lower left of the screen) then use the left-right directional buttons to find "Settings", then the up-down buttons to find "USB Connection" on the PSP.
  3. Press the "X" button (you got it, the round button with the "X" on it) and your PSP should display "USB Connection".
  4. In a moment or two your computer should tell you that a new USB device has been connected, then show you a new generic hard drive, usually E: or F:
  5. Click on the drive letter that corresponds to the PSP unit.
  6. Now create a new folder on that drive and name it "psp".
  7. Within the new "psp" folder create another folder, and name it "music".
  8. Copy your desired mp3 files into the new "music" folder.
  9. When you're done copying your desired music tracks, press the "O" button on the PSP to get out of USB connect mode.
Now you're ready to go! 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! Note that the PSP running older firmware (firmware is the "operating system" of the PSP) does not support any Windows Media formats i.e WMA & WMV, so any music you have in that format must be converted to MP3 before copying to your PSP. Fortunately, Sony's very own Image Converter 2.1 can convert all your music with a very simple GUi and will then also manage all the measuring and transfering for you too.

You can transfer it from your sstem by connecting using a USB cable..
Here's how to do it just in case you wanted to do it..

It's not too hard to transfer files from your Windows PC to your Sony PSP, but here's the trick: the "PSP Value Pack" doesn't have everything that you need. Not so good. In fact, you'll want to add a larger Memory Stick Duo, for example, because 32MB just isn't much space at all, when you come down to it.
The other missing piece in the Value Pack is the USB cable that lets you connect your Sony PSP to your Windows PC and, of course, vice versa. Fortunately, these are pretty easy to find - anywhere that carries Sony digital cameras should have the right USB cable, or you can try somewhere like Froogle to find a cable. I did a quick search and found this $7.95 cable from one store.
To get everything working, plug the Sony PSP into the Windows PC via USB cable, plug the PSP into the wall, then turn both units on. On the PSP, click the "USB Connection" button (on the Settings menu) and, hopefully, your PC will beep and tell you that it's found a new "removable disk": your PSP.
Using Windows Explorer, find the new PSP device and if there isn't already a folder called PHOTO on it, create one as you ordinarily would create a folder in Windows. Now just drop in any JPEG images you'd like to have viewable on your PSP while on the go.
Music-wise, you'll want to create a folder called MUSIC and drop in MP3 format music files (which means that you can't play music you get from the Apple iTunes Store, for example, because that's in a different format).
I hope that'll get you going with this process. It doesn't seem too hard!
