The PlayStation Portable allows users to not only play a variety of video games, but it also can be used to play videos and music. The PlayStation Portable supports MP3, MP4, WAVE and WMA audio formats. Most audio files will be in the MP3 format if downloaded or ripped from a CD.
If you plan to use a USB cable to transfer the file, make sure a Memory Stick Pro Duo card is in the PSP. Turn on the PSP. Go to the "Settings" menu and select "USB Connection."
Connect the PSP to the computer using a mini-B USB cable. The mini-B end connects to the top of the PSP.
If using a card reader, insert the PSP's Memory Stick Pro Duo in to the card reader connected to the computer.
Whether using a card reader or a USB cable, the computer should prompt you to view the files. If not, go to "My Computer" and then to "Memory Stick."
Under the "Memory Stick" folder, drag and drop the appropriate music files into the "Music" folder. If there is not already a "Music" folder, create one by selecting "New Folder" from the top menu or right-click the blank space in the folder, selecting "New" then "Folder."
To play the music, go to the "Music" menu on the PSP and select "Memory Stick." All valid audio files will be accessible here.
- Make sure the music you wish to use is in MP3, MP4, WAVE or WMA format. Otherwise, it will not play.
- If you use a card reader, make sure to reinsert the memory stick in to the PSP after transferring your music.
- Do not delete or alter any files from other folders on the memory stick. These may contain saves game or other game information.
