Sony’s amazing electronic entertainment kit is one of the most versatile out there. Whatever the type of media, this little gem can handle it. The starnge thing is, not everyone is using it to its full potential. Of all of my friends thqat have PSP’s, none of them watch movies! This was strange, until it dawned on me that they didn’t actually know how to do it! It really isn’t that hard to put videos on PSP, so hopefully you will stay with me to find out how, and I can get my friends to read the article instead of asking me questions all the time!
The most important practical consideration that keeps people from putting videos on their PSP is lack of free memory. There is no getting away from it, if you are serious about putting video on your PSP, you shoul get hold of the biggest and best memory stick you can afford. A 512mb stick is the absolute minimum for this purpose.
In order to transfer video to your PSP you will need to have a computer handy so that you can connect the PSP via a USB cable. An internet connection comes in very handy, but you don’t absolutely need it unless you need to download your video first.
1-Connect the computer and the PSP together, with the PSP switched off in the first instance, and then switch the PSP on as soon as you have made and confirmed the connection.
2-With the PSP go into the SETTINGS menu, and press X, which is used to link the PSP to the computer. If you then go into MY COMPUTER on the computer, you will see another volume that has been added. This is the PSP/Playstation Portable.
3-Open the PSP memory card and then open the folder called PSP. With this folder still open, you will need to make another folder within it. This folder should be called “MP_ROOT”. You also need to create a folder called “100mnv01”
4-Save the movies that you intend to watch in the folder “100mnv01” and now you can start! You can begin to watch a movie by clicking on the saved image inside the memory card. For this to work, it is essential that the movies are in MP4 format. If you don’t know about this format, look it up in the search engine. Should you wish to transfer your DVDs to the MP4 format you will need to get special software to do the job.
There you have it. You now know how to put video on PSP in 4 easy steps!
