File Transfer Problems

When I go to transfer music files to my psp I keep having problems. When I copy and paste certain files my psp seems to disconnect from my pc. My psp still is on the USB screen but it just says please wait and I can't access files on it until I retry the USB connection. I have tried formating the Mem stick and even using a different one. I tried rebooting the psp and resetting the default settings. I havn't had this problem since I updated to 3.80.

Try using a different method to transfer files. This is how I do it:

Connect the PSP to the computer then access it's folders by going into "My Computer". Once that window has been brought up, open the folder with all your music or whatever you want. Now, with both windows next to each other, drag and drop the files you want on your PSP.

If the same problem keeps occurring, it may be your computer that's the problem if your PSP is still trying to connect once it's been disconnected. Have you tried removing your PSP safely? There should be a little icon on the right bottom of your computer screen that says "Safely Remove Hardware". Use that to remove your PSP from now on if you haven't already.

I hope this works for ya! ^-^

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.

Yes there is a way. What you will need is a PC, Some form of Memory stick Duo card Reader, And a PSP Compatible Memory stick Duo/Pro Duo.

If you havent already used the memory stick inside the PSP it will not have the correct Formatted file System for use in the PSP. but you can create the file system using your computer.

heres how to do it ! :

1) plug your Memory stick Duo/Pro Duo into the card reader on your computer.
2) open my computer, locate the Memory stick usually found under the "devices with removable storage" area.
3) once inside the memory stick, create 2 seperate folders. One called "PSP" and the other one called "MP_ROOT".
4) Navigate into the "PSP" Folder and create 3 Folders, "MUSIC", "PICTURE" & "VIDEO"
5) Copy & Paste the Necessary files into each Subsequent Sub-Folder within the "PSP" Folder.

Note : The PSP Can only handle Certain File types for Pictures, Music, And Video. i would suggest Navigating to before you transfer your files to ensure that you are adding files which are Viewable/Readable by The PSP's software.

Hope this helps !?

Cant transfer music file to my lg ku990 via usb from pc to phone

Instead of loading the music manager, click on file in the LG Suite box, and then click 'content'. This will connect without a problem (at least it did for me, despite music manager not working), and then drag and drop music from your pc files, onto your phone. Hope this helps.

if its music files, you just download onto the PC.
then transfer them to the music folder on the PSP.
connect your PSP to the computer via USB.
should usually be recognised as a mass storage device. Drive F/ Or G/ possibly.
open the device and locate the folder music.
copy the music from your computer, and paste into the music folder on the PSP. no ripping device required simply copy and paste. you can also do this via a ms-pro duo memory stick and reader.
Hope this helps you out.
