How to put music on PSP from computer
Sony PSP (or PlayStation Portable) is quite a versatile console with support for multiple types of files. It is not just a gaming console, supporting video and audio files in multiple formats as well. You can easily turn it into your very own portable movie player, web browser, PDA device, and even digital walkman.
First off, let’s make this very clear that PSP does not support all types of files. The older versions of PSP do not support any types of music files except those in MP3 format. WMA and WMV files cannot be played on these versions. The support for these files was, however, included in later version of PSP.
So, if you wish to play WMV or WMA files in your older version PSP, then a firmware upgrade can do the trick. WMA and WMV files are quite large compared to MP3 files, however, and are quite taxing on the little memory capacity available in a PSP. For this reason, you should preferably store only MP3 music files in your Sony PSP. If you do get music files in WMA or WMV, you can always transcode those to MP3 using one of the many free-for-use WMA to MP3 converters before you transfer the files to your PSP. Now, let us see how you can go about transferring your favorite music to your PSP. Do the following:
- Connect your PSP to your computer with the USB cable supplied with the PSP.
- Now, press the “Home” button on your PSP.
- Scroll down the menu to the option “Setting” using the left and right directional buttons.
- When you reach the option “USB Connection”, press the button “X” to indicate your selection.
- The “My Computer” window will now show a removable drive in it.
- Double click on the removable drive to open it. You will see a folder named “PSP” inside it.
- Open the folder “PSP” and see whether there is a folder named “Music” inside it.
- If you cannot see the folder named “Music”, then create it inside the folder named “PSP”. Make sure to name it “Music”.
- Now simply copy and paste the music files from the hard disk to the “Music” folder, just the way you would transfer files from a CD to your hard disk.
- Once you are done, press the “O” button on your PSP. Your PSP will exit from the USB connection. You can now unplug your PSP from the USB data cable.
Now you can carry around your music collection and listen to your favorite tunes, whenever you want, wherever you want. Enjoy!
