An easier way is to format your memory stick and then it automatically adds the PHOTO, VIDEO, and MUSIC folders.

  • To format: on your psp go to settings>system settings>Format memory stick.

dude, we already have instructions for this. its called the manual.

Hey, man I respect were your coming from... But, the manual doesn't have to many photos, so thats really why I made this ible.

ok, nice guide. but you should know that the new PSP manual has more pics.

Cool! I want a new PSP I don't have the one in this ible anymore... :'-(

DJ Radio (author)schimmi2008-12-30

hacking my old PSP was what broke it.

Also you can watch tv on them

ReCreate (author)schimmi2008-12-24

but they have 32 more megs of RAM and are allover improved

thepaul93 (author)schimmi2008-12-11

i would rather have a slim then carry more weight with ir.

Brennn10 (author)2008-04-02

If I ever get a PSP, I will surely refer to this. Nice work.

DJ Radio (author)Brennn102008-12-30

you can also refer to the instruction manual, which comes with the PSP.

thepaul93 (author)Brennn102008-12-11

if you do get a PSP remember that you need a memory stick to put photos, videos and music

Thanks for the comment!

megmcfer37 (author)Brennn102008-04-02

I second that.

codongolev (author)2008-09-09

some would think this is obvious, but I have encountered people who have never even seen the main screen, their psp being on umd auto start ever since they bought it....

I use the USB cord and computer too, it's a lot faster on the internet on the computer, but if you have wifi you can just download pictures off of Google images.

jademasker (author)2008-06-22

The "PSP to computer" cord is called a USB cord. <_

I already know how to do this, but great job, very detailed.

Thanks for the comment. What model PSP do you have? I have the Daxter Special Edition.

j-manbrown (author)GorillazMiko2008-04-02

I agree, very detailed.
