Step by step guide for older firmware versions
PSP videos don’t have to be in a specific PSP format, as long as it’s a file type that can be read by PSP. If you can activate the PSP and navigate the home menu, you can transfer PSP videos. Depending on the number of files that you transfer, this process can take two minutes or more.
What you need
- a PSP
- Memory Stick Duo or Pro Duo
- USB cable with Mini-B connector at one end
- videos in a format that can be played by your PSP
Transfer PSP Videos to Memory Stick Step-by-Step
- Insert the Memory Stick into the Memory Stick slot on the left side of the PSP. Depending on how many PSP videos you want to hold, you might need to get a bigger one than the stick that came with your system.
- Turn on the PSP.
- Plug the USB cable into the back of your PSP and into your PC or Mac. The USB cable must have a Mini-B connector at one end (this is connected to the PSP), and a standard USB connector at the other end (this is connected to the computer).
- Scroll to the “Settings” icon on your PSP home menu.
- Find USB Connection in the Settings Menu. Press X. Your PSP will display the words “USB Mode” and your PC or Mac will recognize it as a USB storage device.
- There should be a folder called MP_ROOT on the PSP Memory Stick if you format it on your PSP; if not, make one.
- There should be a folder named 100MNV01 inside the MP_ROOT folder. If not, make one.
- Drag and drop your PSP videos into a folder just like you would save a file in another folder on your computer. The video file is in the 100MNV01 folder.
- Disconnect your PSP by first clicking Safely Remove Hardware in the PC’s bottom menu bar, or by “ejecting” the drive on the Mac (drag the icon to the trash). Then unplug the USB cable and press circle to return to the Home Menu.
- Watch your PSP videos by navigating to the Video Menu on your PSP’s XMB (or Home Menu), highlighting the video you want to watch, and pressing X.
