Question about Sony PlayStation Portable (PSP) Console
Have bought my son a slim psp with the 3,90 version software. Can download the game in torrent form it goes to the psp games file, I insert the usb cable to both, the usb line on psp moves but does not arrive on the psp the memory stick has a large memory. This is all new to me and you will have to spell it out to me, but I understand I should get an emulator when I download a game so far have not found this, where would it be? Have had a go at downloading demos from the sony website and it worked. I keep writing to the PSP centre with this but I keep receiving the same common e-mail back and nothing more. Is it different for downloading music? Can you please help? Also have I gone to a really difficult PSP download website and is there one more in tune with the "capability". Any help you can give would be welcome. Thanks Claire

The problem is that the slims are unable to play downloaded games without being reverted to an older firmware and than putting a custom firmware on it. unfortunately the only way to do this on a slim psp is with a pandora battery. they can be purchased but can be pretty expensive. the alternative to purchasing a pandora battery is to make one yourself. if you decide to make one yourself the files are readily available from mos torrent sites and tutorials on how to do so can be found on www.pspscene.net. if you have any further questions i would ask that you direct them to the knowledgeable people who occupy the forums there. hope this helped.

How to Download Games onto PSP- Step 1-
Your regular PSP games will come on disc, or UMD as they are known. When you download games onto PSP however, you are going to be putting them straight onto a memory stick/card. (Some people call them memory sticks, and some people say memory cards, but they are in fact the same thing.) The standard PSP memory card of 32mb is just not going to be big enough to download games onto, PSP owners should generally get the largest one they can afford. These days you can find fairly affordable 2 or 4 gig models on Ebay and Amazon quite easily. Once you have your new memory card, you will need to format it before use. This is basically like wiping the slate clean before use, so be sure to do it.

You will need to locate somewhere to download the games from. There are hundreds of places online that will allow you to download games onto PSP, but unfortunately they are not all reliable-if you go to the wrong places you will encounter many problems and can even find your computer riddled with spyware after. Not good! Be sure to choose a reputable site to download PSP games from-the most reliable ones are the ones that charge a small fee upfront and then give you access to unlimited downloads.

Once you begin downloading to your computer, be sure to only download files that end in "PSP" or have "PSP" in the title, as they are the only files compatible. You will occasionally find that the untrustworthy sites out there will try and give all kinds of files as downloads, so be sure to double check everything before you download it. When downloading the games I save them to a little folder on my desktop called "PSP Downloads, as it's simply the easiest place!
How to Download Games onto PSP-Step 4-
Now that you have a selection of games downloaded, you will need to transfer them from your PC onto the memory card of your PSP. This is pretty simple, all you will need is an ordinary USB cable to connect the two, and the PC should then identify the PSP as some form of removable drive, like a flashdrive or removable HD. All you need to do from here is to open up the PSP using the PC and drag and drop the required files onto the PSP memory stick, much as you would with any other removable drive. When you are doing this, be sure to send the files into folders called PSP, and then GAME on your memory card. If they don't exist you will need to create them, and I would recommend using all caps.

Once the transfer is finished you should be able to play the games on the PSP by simply opening up the GAME menu and selecting the games from the stick. Any errors or error messages are likely to be due to incompatible firmware-this is especially true if downloading homebrew games. You may find it necessary to downgrade your PSP in order to play these homebrew games.
Hopefully this guide has helped you see that it's not that tough at all to download games onto PSP once you get the hang of it, the real trick is finding a reliable download source!
I would suggest downloading PSP games using torrents. Just go to www.thepiratebay.org and search for PSP games. You'll need to have mutorrent or some other torrent software on your computer to download the torrents with. Follow the instructions once you have the downloaded game via a torrent and you'll be good to go. Good luck.
