  1. #1 How To Transfer Video to a PSP Memory Stick 
    Whether you want to show off your own video work, or watch the latest anime video trailers on the go, being able to transfer video to your PSP is a useful thing. If you can can turn on your PSP and navigate the home menu, you can transfer video files.

    Difficulty: Easy
    Time Required: 2 minutes or more, depending on the number of files
    Here's How:

    1. Insert a Memory Stick into the Memory Stick slot in the left side of the PSP. Depending on how many video files you want it to hold, you may need to get a larger one than the stick that came with your system.
    2. Turn on the PSP.
    3. Plug a USB cable into the back of the PSP and into your PC or Mac. The USB cable needs to have a Mini-B connector on one end (this plugs into the PSP), and a standard USB connector on the other (this plugs into the computer).
    4. Scroll to the "Settings" icon on the home menu of your PSP.
    5. Find the "USB Connection" icon in the "Settings" menu. Press the X button. Your PSP will display the words "USB Mode" and your PC or Mac will recognize it as a USB storage device.
    6. There should be a folder called "MP_ROOT" on the PSP Memory Stick if you formatted it on your PSP; if not, create one.
    7. There should be a folder called "100MNV01" inside the "MP_ROOT" folder.
    8. Drag and drop files into the folders just as you would save files in another folder on your computer. Video files go in the "100MNV01" folder.
    9. Disconnect your PSP by first clicking on "Safely Remove Hardware" on the bottom menu bar of a PC, or by "ejecting" the drive on the Mac (drag the icon into the trash). Then unplug the USB cable and press the circle button to return to the home menu.


    1. Video files compatible with firmware version 1.50 or higher are MPEG-4 (MP4/AVC)

    What You Need:

    * a PSP
    * a computer
    * a Memory Stick Duo or Pro Duo
    * a USB cable with a Mini-B connector on one end

    Simple guide there psp4lyf, but you fail to mention about the avc side of mpeg4.

    These avc codec files can only go in the 101ANV01 folder, these file types start with MAQ, normal mp4 files start with M4V.

    Also you can put these M4V files in the VIDEO folder and they will work. Either with or without a .thm file, you can also name the M4V file whatever you like eg spiderman.m4v and it will show on the psp. Depending on which firmware its running.
