Games- The tip for getting games, especially for PSP, is what you think you would play over and over and over again. The replay value increases if it has online capability. My favorites games for the PSP are SOCOM: Navy Seals Fireteam Bravo 2, Daxter, Ratchet and Clank size matters, Star Wars Battlefront II, Midnight club, and Either Grand Theft Autos.

Video- Having videos on your PSP really makes a difference on road trips. There are free programs on the Internet for converting videos into PSP forms, for example Orbit .

Music- Unless you have a Ipod, the PSP is also good for just listening to music.

Pictures- Showing pictures on your PSP to your friends, and you can also set it as your background.

Internet- The PSP internet is fun when you don't want to carry your laptop around. It can't support large sums flash, so no videos, no games, no porn (unless its pictures:)

Step 2: Add flash games to the PSP

How to put flash games on your PSP- You need Mozilla Firefox for this. Ok now go to your favorite flash game. Make sure it is simple, involving only the mouse and click, I picked Bowman 2. Pictures tell it all. Ok now go on Mozilla Firefox, and go to bowman2 (don't have to do this game, just easier for this), go to the File at the top left, and scroll down to where it says Save Page As... , and save it to your desktop. Connect your PSP, and make a new folder on the PSP and name it Games, go to the folder and find Shock Wave Flash Object, and copy it into your new Games folder, Rename it to something you will remember. I chose b. Now go to your internet, and type in at the address this file:/Games/b.swf It will ask you do you want to run this plugin say yes.


Step 3: New themes

Go to http://www.psp-themes.net/top.php and pick out your favorite theme. I chose the Vista Inspirat. Now download it, and go find it. Plug the PSP into the computer. Make a new folder under the PSP folder called THEME. Drag the .ptf file into the folder. Now go to System Settings, Theme Settings and find your Theme.

Step 4: Make your PSP have Windows Vista

Download the software from here http://www.download.com/PspWxp/3000-7242_4-10531428.html
Then extract it to your desktop
Now Click the installer.exe
Install it to your PSP (Like E:/ or F:/ drive)
Then go to your PSP Internet
*Delete your Cache
*Then go to settings Cache, then disable it
IMPORTANT THAT YOU DO THE * ABOVE
Type in file:/pspWxp/index.htm
It will take 5 seconds to load and you have Window Vista up.

Step 5: Finished and have fun

Basic, easy steps, made your PSP more fun. Rate it if you like it.

you know how to do that but you dont know how to take actual screen shots on your computer? you know that little button on your keyboard that says print screen or prt scrn? and the paste button in paint or aany photo editing software.
srry i just find it annoying that some people dont know how to do that or rotate an image on their computer. its simple little things that people overlook.

Free TV
oye psp-themes.net forgot tht 1
lol actually go to psponme.com on your psps web browser and you can play or download the games free. theres other sites on their main site too (pspicy.com) but a few are kinda iffy you can get themes, vids, and flash games on there. but uf that vid downloader doesnt work. then theres another site. but i forget what it is right now. i might get back with you on that part.
What connection cord do you need? Will it download any game? Does it work for macbooks?
My PC has a MS pro duo reader so I don't need a cable; check if yours has one.
oh yeah get a good one. DON'T buy cheap one or they might break! buy one thats about $10 to $12 or just a bit lower like $8 .REMEMBER DO NOT be cheap on these!
u use a link cable just go buy it from your nearest game stores if they don't have it go to a place where people sell computers,parts and stuff they should have it. well idont know how does that USB hole looks like on a PSP. just in case bring your PSP with you.
The connection cord is simply a usb to miniusb cable,most of the time people have a few lying around And any computer that can read data from the psp will work

When I say connection cord, I mean a USB cord that plugs into your computer.
I know that already but where do you get one for cheap $.
The connection cord is a mini usb. if u have a computer, you should have one of these laying around. If not u can get one in ANY electronics store for about 50 cents

its not actually vista, its a collection of html pages that do the basic functions of vista, the pages are on your memory stick so you dont have to be connected for it to work
