Question about Sony PSP (Piano Black)
Posted by Anonymous on
Hi there, I came across an article which explains how to transfer PSP Data to your PC.
CONNECT YOUR PSP TO PC
The PSP can function as a USB Memory Stick Duo reader. Using this functionality, you can copy pictures, audio, and other content to and from your Memory Stick Duo. To access the Memory Stick Duo in your PSP from your PC, you'll need a USB cable that has a "Mini-B" connector (common for digital cameras) and a "Standard-A" connector (common for printers, etc). Plug the Mini-B side into the top of your PSP and the Standard-A side into your PC. From the PSP software, navigate to the top of the settings list and select "USB Connection." Your PC (Windows/Mac/Linux) should detect a new "Removable Disk Drive" that you can then access.
FORMAT YOUR MEMORY STICK
In order to be able to use your new memory stick on your PSP, you'll have to format it. When you format your memory stick, the formatting will create a set of new folders on your PSP: GAME, MUSIC, PHOTO, and SAVEDATA.
EXTRACT THE SAVED GAME
This process will greatly depend on which software you use to extract zip files. WinRAR for instance offers the "extract here" option, which will simply extract the contents of a zip file to it's current directory.
TRANSFER SAVE GAME TO "SAVEDATA" FOLDER
Just copy the folder you have just extracted, and paste it into the PSP's "SAVEDATA" folder. But, BEWARE!, to any folder overwrite warnings! Because the PSP save game folders use the same names for the same games, copying folders into these locations could lead to lost data. For this reason, we recommend that you backup your old save games before overwriting them. For Example, I would simply rename a folder like "ULPS0004" to "ULPS0004_backup."
EXIT USB MODE
Because your PSP has been in USB Mode throughout this process, just push X to exit. Then you can safely disconnect your PSP from your PC.
VERIFY TRANSFER OF SAVE DATA
To verify the integrity of the SAVE GAME data you have just transferred, use the PSP's built-in Save Data Utility. Select it from the "Game" menu.

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.
How to Download Games onto PSP-Step 2-
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.
How to Download Games onto PSP-Step-3-
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.
How to Download Games onto PSP-Step 6-
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.
