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
- Connect the PSP to your PC with a USB cable. (about $10: buy a USB cable for your PSP)
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
- Press the "X" button (you got it, the round button with the "X" on it) and your PSP should display "USB Connection".
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:
- Click on the drive letter that corresponds to the PSP unit.
- Now create a new folder on that drive and name it "psp".
- Within the new "psp" folder create another folder, and name it "music".
- Copy your desired mp3 files into the new "music" folder.
- When you're done copying your desired music tracks, press the "O" button on the PSP to get out of USB connect mode.
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.
