Media Manager for PSP
on 18 February 2010
This is a nifty peice of software, didn't take long to install and it just works.
Yes you can probably do most of the things this can do using free-ware tools from the internet. I have done just this.. to compare.
The Freeware, are clunky and confusing, and most of all they crash, OFTEN! especially when you are converting large files, and my word does it take forever when it does.
This software however, does the oposite. It transfers faster, and is more stable, I can do more things on my computer while it is transfering.
I don't really use my PSP for anything else then to watch movies, and play games. however for the point of this review I have tried out the audio conversion, which I am sure a lot of users might be using their PSP for.
I tried the same album in the different formats, at around the same avarage bitrate.
ATRAC, WMA and MP3, Not much noticeble difference, however if you want to squeeze more tracks for your memory, ATRAC or WMA at lower bitrates are the better of the lot.
The Drag and Drop system just works, its great, before I started using this system, I had to navigate around the file system of the PSP which is very confusing, copy and paste stuff to where I thought it should go, to find out I was wrong, it was supposed to go into this folder. This software takes all the trial and error out, and gets your media on or off the system.
So, you could go with the confusing Freeware version, or you could get this, which is a small price to pay, for an all in one soloution.
