How to transfer video to Sony PSP

PlayStation Portable

The PSP (abbreviated form of PlayStation Portable) is a handheld game console manufactured and marketed by Sony Computer Entertainment. It is the first handheld video game console; the current version uses Memory Stick Duo or Duo Pro as its primary storage media, which is more convenient than previous Universal Media Disc and it's able to transfer data between console and computers easily.

Since PSP has a large viewing screen and robust multi-media capabilities, many users like to view videos directly on this device. However, many new PSP owners have no idea how to transfer movies into PSP, or they are not able to locate them in PSP. If you are one of such new PSP users, this article will help.

 

As referred above, PSP system uses Memory Stick Duo to store games, music, videos, photos and other contents, so its movies shall be saved to Memory Stick Duo for playback. And a normal PSP movie should consist of a .MP4 and a .THM file, named as M4Vxxxxx.MP4 and M4Vxxxxx.THM (xxxxx is the same 5 numbers in this pair of playable structure files, and .THM is .MP4's thumbnail file which is not necessary to transfer into PSP).
