Not able to copy movies on Sony 8GB Memory Stick Pro Duo for PSP


Before you go throwing any old video file onto your PSP, make sure you have the following items:
  • The PSP. This is self-explanatory.
  • The .MP4 video files.
  • Video conversion software to convert non-MP4 files to MP4, the format the PSP reads.

How to convert DVD to PSP?


PSP Video formats supported:

Video: MPEG-4 (aka MP4), AVI
Aside from movie and music videos available commercially on UMD, the PSP can also play video files from the Memory Stick. These files must be in MP4 or AVI format.

VMusic: MP3, ATRAC, MP4, WAV, WMA
Music can come on UMD (though usually it comes in the form of music videos). You can also load your own music to play, as long as it's among the formats listed (you may not be able to play some of the file formats if you're using a Memory Stick Pro Duo, though; only the Memory Stick Duo is compatible with all file formats).

DVD to PSP Converter is a professional DVD ripping software which can convert homemade DVD and encrypted (rent or purchased) DVD to PSP video and audio files like MPEG-4, AVI, MP3 ... and these converted files can be played on PSP, PSP 3000 and PS3.

What's more, this DVD ripper can edit DVD, it can help you clip DVD segment, crop DVD size, edit DVD effects, adjust subtitle, and add DVD watermark, to get the customized DVD video and audio files.

The following is a step by step guide on how to convert DVD to PSP with the DVD to PSP Converter.


Step 1: Download and install DVD Ripper

Step2: Add DVD disc or IFO file
This DVD to PSP software supports to import two kinds of DVD (DVD disc and IFO file) Click one of the "Load DVD" icons.

Step 3: Select output format
Click the triangle on the right of the "Format", you will see the drop down list, it lists many popular media players such as iPod, iPhone, iPad, PSP, BlackBerry, etc, so you can choose the right formats according to your media players.

Step 4: Output Video Settings
Click the last icon on the tool bar , you can customize video and audio parameters on the pop up window by choosing from the drop down list of these parameters.If you don't know how to set the correct parameters manually, you can just click "Low" or "Mid" or "High", but you should know that high quality video contains large size and vice versa.
Regular DVD movies usually have several subtitles such as English, French, German, etc. You can select one you prefer. You can also delete the subtitle by selecting "No Subtitle". Selecting Audio is the same. What's more, you can also choose a proper output path as your destination folder for the converted movies.

Step 5: "Start" Conversion
Click "Start" button to start the DVD to PSP conversion. And you will find the output files by click "Open".

My games and movies don't work


hello jacob..

there might be a problem with your UMD optical reader on your PSP. have u tried all the disks??? none of them work? Try updating to the latest firmware version. If everything fails, then i believe there is something wrong with your disk reader (hardware related). Have u tried playing any media from the duo flash cards??? if the problem is with the UMD reader, then u will have to give it to SONY for repairs. let me know...

PSP can't read UMD movies


check first that you are using version 3.71 which i image you are if you bought in asia ( main menu system information)
regardles of wheter you are on this version or not i'm damm sure is not a sony release of the firmware you bough in asia :-)

shut down PSP hold power button 4 - 10 seconds or until light goes out.


restart PSP holding down R button to access recovery mode.
go to configuration,
check fake regioon currently disabled. and free umd region currently dissabled ( use x button to enter sub menus and toggle possible options)

Hi Jleew,

 

You should check to see if another UMD will work first.  Also try them in another PSP.  If your sure your PSP is not reading Discs, then and only then, Clean the Laser lens carefully.  Using a strong flashlight and magnifying glass, look into the UMD drive with the UMD door open and look for debris like hair or lint, and also dirt and dust.  A black switch pokes up on the left inside the UMD drive.  Its a little black stick.  When you press down on this Black stick, your UMD disc motor should spin for  second or two.  The UMD laser lens should light up when your press this switch.  If any of this does not happen, you need to replace the UMD drive. If you need someone to do this which if you have never done it, you need some knowledge big time.

I can do this for you if you're in the USA for $55 including a New UMD drive, REturn Shipping, and 90 day warranty. Contact Repairtech@playstationclinic.com

Psp not saving or loading


Hi Spazza2,

Did yout try using the same UMD game your brother was using and see if the game format has anything to do with it?  Since you upgraded, the UMD game may be old, and might not work with Version 3.71. It sounds like your PSP is working just  fine other than that.
