Connect the psp with the USB cable. on the psp, go to settings and "usb connection."

On the computer, a new drive will appear in "My Computer".
right click the "Removable Drive", and click "Copy".
close "My computer".
right click an empty area on the desktop and select paste.

after it finishes, on the PSP, remove the original memory sitck and insert the new one.

Go back to your desktop and open the folder you just created (its usually called "removable drive").
in the folder, press Ctrl + A, then Ctrl + C.
go to "my computer" and open the drive.
now, press Ctrl + V.
now all of your files should be on the new memory stick.

I have a psp 3003 model.... i cannot run any games from my memory stick.... it says 'the game cannot be started.the data is corrupt'.. plz help


If you have run games befor off your memory stick it could be your memory stick or the psp that is broken. however if you are trying for the 1st time. you cant run games of the memory stick without putting the game in the right format aswell as the memory stick.
The psp also has to have the right software on so that it can run games of a memory stck.

Corrupt memory stick


It needs to be replaced.
You can try reformatting it but 9 times out of 10 that doesn't work. If you want to try it do this:
1. Remove the corrupt memory stick from your PSP.
2. Go to system settings and choose format memory stick.
3. When it tells you all the data will be deleted and asks if you're sure, insert the corrupt memory stick and choose yes.
Either way you are going to lose all your data from memory so make sure you go ahead and say yes to this.

I have a sony psp. I have music stored on a small


corrupted data usually means just that corrupted data and usually won't let you play em at all. you may want to retransfer the files again... and after that if that didn't fix the problem reformat the new memory stick.

what you describe should have been fine. files just might have been corrupted from moving over from one to the other. is it for every song or just one? you could try this without the media go. i have an older firmware since i haven't upgraded my psp in awhile... but

1)on the desktop of your pc create a folder called pspmusic. right click on any blank spot on your desktop>go to new>folder> and rename that to pspmusic

2)plug in your psp to your computer like you normally do using the usb cable.

3)on your computer go to my computer and select the drive of your psp. *NOTICE THE DIFFERENT FOLDERS IN THERE AND WRITE THEM DOWN ON PIECE OF PAPER INCASE YOUR BIGGER MEMORY STICK DOESN'T HAVE THEM*

4)go to your music folder and copy everything in that folder to the pspmusic folder you created on your desktop on your pc in step 1.

5)once that done close that window down.
remove your old smaller memory stick from your psp and insert the new bigger one and connect it to your pc in the normal way.

6)go to the drive of the psp and to the music folder (if there isn't a music folder there create one) and open it. what you may want to do here is to delete all things in there or keep as is. just know that if there is a corrupt file in there you'll have the same problem. this is up to you for you can try this again later.

7)now go to the pspmusic folder on your desktop and copy all the music in that folder and bring it over to your music folder on your psp.

8)once everything has transfered over test it out and see if all works

its a bit more hands on than using media go but at least you see what is happening.

if that didn't work you may want to try formatting your new bigger memory stick

How to put music on psp with out an memory stick


The PSP has NO internal memory to store music. When you transfer music to a PSP, you are storing it on the memory stick. When you go to the MUSIC section of the PSP menu, it checks the memory stick to see what music is on it.

There is no way to put music on a PSP without a memory stick.

I upgraded my psp 2006 from 5.00 m33-6 to version 5.50. Now it does not detect the games saved in my memory stick. What should i do?


Are you trying to play the game from the memory stick? Or are you trying to play a game from the UMD and retrieve the saved game data from the memory stick?

5.00 m33 is a custom firmware that allows the PSP to play games stored on a memory stick. If you upgrade to 5.50, which is an original Sony firmware, that functionality will go away. If you have custom firmware, you should never upgrade it or the features like playing homebrew or loading games from a memory stick will go away.

yes , these type of games are known as copyrighted games which dont allow you change , copy , edit thier original location.
there are two ways in which you can copy them mto a memory stick....
Either try to download the game to memory stick directly without installing it on ur PC or
Second way is to check whether the game is in a read only mode or not
There are illegal ways to copy them to memory stick...
There are hacking softwares available on net thru which you can by pass the copyright that is applied on the game . but....... not recomemnnded at all. ( Not recommended )
