PSP games and movies are selling like hotcakes and have taken the technology world by storm which continues even today. Their huge popularity can be attributed to one thing: the PSP or PlayStation Portable, is one of the most adaptable and versatile consoles in the world. The little UMD discs can be transported around in your pocket, allowing portability for gaming and watching full-length movies on the go. However, the portability is taken up another level when you consider that you do not even need to carry these discs around, as you can store multiple games and movies on your PSP memory stick.
What you will need to play downloaded psp games:
The most important thing you will need to play downloaded PSP games, is a decent size PSP memory stick. I recommend going with nothing smaller than a 1GB PSP Memory Stick. The larger the better because you'll obviously be able to fit more games and movies. Please note that when you buy a brand new psp memory stick, you will need to format it before you use it. To play PSP movies and games, it will be much easier if your firmware version is 1.5 or lower. The later firmware versions are a little bit more difficult to get going. You could think about downgrading your firmware if you have a later version but be careful because TA-082 PSP's should never be downgraded, as this will result in a bricked psp and you will not be able to use it!
Getting started, you will need to find legal psp downloads on the Internet. Once they are downloaded, you will transfer them to your PSP using a USB cable. Your PC will generally recognize your PSP as an external drive, sometimes F drive. All you need to do is drag and drop the files onto your psp. So, do the following:
Copy your PSP games to the right path on your PSP. This should be PSP> GAME (all the folder names should be in caps). After all the files are transferred to your psp memory, you can disconnect the USB cable. Now in the main menu on your PSP, go down to GAME and then choose the Memory Stick option. Press the X button, and all the downloaded games on your memory stick will show up. If there are any errors, you might want to check your firmware version, or see if the downloaded file is corrupt.
That's it! Now you should be able to play downloaded PSP games!
