How To Access Wi-Fi Service On Your PSP

Aug 17, 2007
Now that you have your PSP, dont you wish you could change up your music files while on the go? Wouldnt you love to be able to access your iTunes library from anywhere, at any time without having to rely on a dedicated computer set-up.

Well, for a minimal cost (just under $25 USD) and a little tweaking, you will be well on your way to attaining the freedom of listening to whatever music you choose anywhere, anytime via your PSP WiFi internet connection.

These instructions are for MAC users and require the following three components:

1. A MAC using a minimum OS X 10.3,
2. Software (shareware) called Dot Tunes,
3. A PSP with the 2.0 firmware upgrade on board.

The simplicity and innovativeness of Dot Tunes provides you with the capability to peruse your own iTunes library where you can then generate a webpage that shows listings by album and/or artist and then access them over an internet connection. After generation, this webpage can be bookmarked and synced to the web browser on your PSP. Utilizing the Dot Tunes web-based interface, you can then simply browse to your desired song on the PSP screen and finally, download your choice to the Music directory on your PSP.

One thing that should be noted here is that the PSP is very particular about where various media is located and in which directories it can be placed. In order to listen to the song you are downloading, it must first be saved in the MUSIC directory, in a play list folder that already exists. To accommodate this restriction, you need to scroll through your music folder, go into an existing play list folder and save your selection there. Incidentally, you must also re-name the file extension (.m4u) to MP4 before your PSP will recognize it as a legitimate file.

Once you have accomplished the above, you are now ready to add/delete songs to your hearts content, anywhere there may be WiFi access (Increasingly WiFi connections are being made more readily available in coffee shops and other areas), and provided you have a WiFi connection on your PSP.

Because your MAC will be effectively acting as a web-server, it is essential that you set it up so that it will wake up for Ethernet network admin access in the Energy saving preferences on your computer.

Additionally, the port that the Dot Tunes page being served is accessible through must be an open port and not blocked by your Internet Service Provider. Plus, your router or computer firewall must not be engaged.

It is also a good idea to add password protection to the PSP connection so that you have the security in place that prevents others from accessing any iTunes libraries not DRM protected.
