1.0 out of 5 stars It's now free to download. Don't spend $30 on it. Jan. 25 2008

The Sony PSP Media Manager is now free to download, from the official Japanese Playstation site. Google the words "psp media manager now free", with quotation marks included, and click on the first link available. The web site and installer are in Japanese, but the program itself runs in English.

4.0 out of 5 stars Do NOT BUY. Available for FREE March 16 2008

Yes it's from SONY's Playstation site. It's new, they finally succumbed to the pressure that it SHOULD have been included in the first place with the PSP.
I have an XP, it works great for transferring video and music. You don't need it for transferring games/demos.

2.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says, but completely inflexible Sept. 13 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com

If you don't mind allowing this software to manage everything for you its own way, it's probably fine. I paid for the software and now I use Windows Explorer to manage my PSP.

First of all, it insists on making a complete copy of your memory stick when you run Media Manager. I use 4GB memory sticks to store videos and music and I don't really need an extra copy of all of that clogging my laptop's hard drive. I'd rather not make a copy, but that's not an option that I can uncheck anywhere. I have to manually stop the process each time I run Memory Manager or insert another memory card.

Second, if you didn't use Media Manager to put the files on your PSP, for some reason Media Manager won't show them to you. I can see hundreds of mp3s on my PSP from Windows Explorer, but Media Manager shows me an empty window. I can't even browse what's already on the PSP with this software. OK, it finally figured it out, but only after I allowed it 3.5 gigabytes of my precious disk space to make full copies of everything.

Third, I expected a drag and drop video functionality. The main reason I wanted this software was to provide me a failsafe way to encode mp4 video to the PSP. I've used other software and got tired of renaming files for the PSP to recognize them. Unfortunately, even if I have the codec installed on my system, Media Manager will not find half of the videos on my PC. I assume they're a format MM doesn't understand. I even had a .mp4 file that I've played on the PSP so it obviously recognizes it. But MM wouldn't show it as a video I could transfer. I had to copy it with Windows Explorer instead.

Suggestions:
- I'd love to see the Media Manager use codecs from the codec folder the way Windows Media Player does. I could install a codec and all of a sudden, Media Manager could interpret the video and move it to the PSP for me.
- I'd love to see the PSP read pdf documents. But, in lieu of that, maybe Media manager could convert pdf to html for me so that I could read them on the PSP.
- The Media Manager ought to be able to read the PSP without making a full copy of everything, and ought to allow me to turn off that behavior.
- I would like to make playlists with Media Manager that show up on my PSP, but can't do that either.

This is decent software if you want to back up your memory cards, but isn't worth paying extra. It ought to be bundled with the PSP, and many of us still wouldn't use it. With a little extra expertise, Windows Explorer and a free mp4 video encoder will do everything this software can do.

Do not buy this software! Buy the new Vista compatible update directly from Sony for $16.95. This version is superior because it includes more codecs and a way to backup game demos.

4.0 out of 5 stars Essential PSP Jan. 30 2007
By Mark Fairchilds - Published on Amazon.com

I didn't think that I would need this at first, but the features are too good to pass up. If you are going to be using the multimedia features of your PSP, definitely consider this software.

The Good: All the recoded videos look awesome, music copies with album art so it looks pretty, save games are backed up just in case you accidentally find the format function, pictures are resized so they load quickly and still look gorgous, and having bookmarks really saves a lot of time with web addresses that can be spent waiting for pages to load (and that takes a while).

The Bad: If music or photos are stored in any folder but the My Music and My Pictures folder on your PC, then the media manager makes a subfolder on the psp for those items. From inside the software, you can't undo this. You have to exit the software and go into the drive through explorer and move the files around yourself. Also, not all videos are recognized by the software. I was surprised that the movie encoded with XVID was able to transcode, but that it wouldn't touch the uncompressed AVI's from my digital camera. <-- Quick Fix: Put your movie into movie maker and save as a WMV. This software also can only use *.url files from the Favorites folder and won't pull firefox bookmarks.

Overall: I would recommend this software. Just be aware that if you don't let Windows run everything right now, then you are going to have to use some work arounds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Product Feb. 7 2007

This product works exactly as advertised for moving music, video, and RSS feeds to your PSP. I've used it in conjunction with my DVR to put numerous episodes of Seinfeld on my PSP for those short airplane trips, as well as full length movies for the longer trips. The RSS feature is nice because it not only lets you select your own, it also has some good presets to get you started.

While most of the transferring of files to your PSP can be done using Explorer, Media Manager is a very useful product for getting videos and music in the right format, folder, and with the necessary thumbnails on your PSP.
