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.

I cannot download images or songs (mp3). please help I've went to usb mode, connected perfectly, transfer images etc over but when I look on the psp they are not there.


You need to make a file called Music in your memory card,I'll explain.
Plug you PSP into the computer go to computer and look at connected devices find the PSPs memory card,and simply open it,don't bother going into any other folders,right click and hover over New and select folder,call it music.Although the PSP has a Music tab it needs music from the memory card.I don't know what's wrong with your images though, so, sorry.

How to pu music on psp


Ok its a little bit of a long method but it can be done.

Step 1. Connect your PSP to your computer using a USB cable.

Step 2. Goto Settings and find the setting thats says "USB Connection"

Step 3. Your PSP will now connect to your computer. Now on your computer goto Start -> Computer. Your PSP will probably be listed as E:

Step 4. Double click on your PSP drive (probably E:)

Step 5. If you are using Vista click Organize from the menu bar of the drive windows that opens and then click New Folder. If you are using XP just right click in the drive window and select new folder.

Step 6. A little box with the folder name "New Folder" will appear highlighted in blue. Call the folder "Music"

Step 7. Next all you need to do is drag and drop your music files (which mjust be MP3) into this music folder from your computer.

Step 8. When you are done press "O" on the PSP and it will end the USB connection.

Step 9. Goto the Music option on your PSP and scroll down to memory stick and then into your music folder. All your music should now be there.

Hope this helps
