Downloading Files to PSP
Did you know that you can download almost any file from the internet on to your computer and transfer it to your psp machine?
Be it, Movies, Audio, software, TV shows, or whatever you're fancy, and it can be put onto your psp to do with as you wish.
I have been asked by various relationships of mine for a rundown on information concerning how its done. I have the reputation of the unofficial internet nerd of the family you see.
Not wanting to admit that I knew very little about it, and ruin my reputation, I did a few searches and managed to come up with some of the answers that they were looking for. So for anyone out there looking for some info on downloading psp and downloading to computer I hope you find, somewhere among my ranting, a useful titbit or two that you can put to your own personal use.
The first thing I had to do was to find a site that did all the things that I wanted it to.
The site I was looking to down load from was a place where all current firmware versions would be supported.
As some games require special edition firmware versions to play I wanted somewhere that included everything needed along with full step by step instructions.
Then all I had to do then was download the files to my computer then simply transfer the files straight to my PSP using a USB cable or compatible memory stick reader. I made sure that all software needed would be provided with explicit instructions. I'm no computer Guru you see.
I ever found a site where all your favorite PSX / PS1 games can also be transferred to your PSP with no problems.
Thousand of PSP compatible ROM games can also be played on the following systems: –
Game Boy / Game Boy Color
Neo Geo CD
Neo Geo Pocket
Turbo Grafx 16
You can also play almost any type of video or audio on your PSP this includes the following video formats: –
There is no limit on where you can watch the movies. Watch them on your computer, burn them to a disk and watch them on your TV, watch them on your iPod Video etc.
Most downloads are now fully compatible with Macintosh Systems. Step by step guides and instructions specific to Macintosh users are also normally included.
Minimum System Requirements: –
At a minimum, you will need the following items
Operating Systems Windows Vista / XP / 2000/98 / ME Macintosh OS X
Processor (CPU) A Pentium II 300 MMX or equivalent as a minimum

PSP and Wi-Fi Hot Spots
The PSP can connect to existing Wi-Fi hot spots. Hot spots are areas with Wi-Fi service and are either accessed for free or for a fee. It is possible to purchase access using a metered system or passes good for a certain time frame, such as day, week or month. There may be metered access or with a pass for, for example, a day, month or year. Access can be for a complete chain of locations or just one hot spot. Hot spots can be in bookstores, cafés or airports. Using the below website you can search for local Wi-Fi hot spots.
Using your PSP as Memory Stick Reader
The PSP can function as a USB Memory Stick Duo reader. Using this functionality, you can copy pictures, audio, and other content to and from your Memory Stick Duo. To access the Memory Stick Duo in your PSP from your PC, you'll need a USB cable that has a Mini-B connector (common for digital cameras) and a Standard-A connector (common for printers, etc). Plug the Mini-B side into the top of your PSP and the Standard-A side into your PC. From the PSP software, navigate to the top of the settings list and select USB Connection. Your PC (Windows / Mac / Linux) should detect a new Removable Disk Drive that you can then access.
You do not needlessly need a wireless hotspot or wireless access point to play against other people as you can also connect up to 16 PSP systems in the vicinity directly through ad-hoc mode for game play without any additional hardware. Just make sure that your downloads fully support multi player options.
