How To Put Movies On Your PSP?

Aug 17, 2007
Now that you have purchased you new PSP you will want to use it to its full capabilities. Watching movies on your portable play station is not difficult; but there are a few hardware considerations that must be in place before you can actually watch your favorite flick on the fly.

The first requirement is a device that will contain your MP4 (movie) files called a Pro Duo Stick. 512 MB is the norm and quite sufficient for this purpose.

Of course, you will want to have a DVD player installed on your system along with a DVD ripper as this will allow you to download the movie from a particular DVD onto your computer.

And, you will need to have a USB cable so you can connect the PSP to your computer.

The last, and some would say, the most important part is a conversion software program that will allow conversion of movie and video files to MP4 format so you can watch them on your PSP. However, technology has advanced to the stage that some DVD software includes the converter files as part of their bundled software package.

Once you have all the necessary components and software applications on hand, preparing your PSP to play movies can be accomplished with a few simple steps.

1. If you do not have the movie you want already installed on your computer, place the selected movie in your DVD player and activate your DVD maker. Click on extract (or rip, depending on your manufacturers specs). Provide location of where you would like to have the file saved. And save it.

2. If you are trying to load a movie already on the hard drive of your computer to your PSP, you only have to click on add on your DVD ripper, then designate where you would like the file to be saved to.

3. Once the file is saved to your hard drive, click on extract and/or encode located in the PSP video converter and then save that file. (If your DVD ripper/PSP video converter software contains the combined application as stated above, steps a,b and c can be combined.)

The Files are on my Computer, Now what do I do?

The correct format (MP4) for PSP movie viewing should now be listed on your computer. So now you have to complete the last steps.

4. All you have to do is connect your PSP to your computer via the USB cable, create a new folder on the Memory Stick (name it MP_Root), then make a sub-folder (100MNV01) inside the Root folder. This is where you will copy your selected MP4 files.

5. Launch the memory stick on your PSP and enjoy your flick.

Enjoy your movie!
