4.0 out of 5 stars psp media manager, 2 Aug 2008
This review is from: Sony PSP Media Manager Pro 2.5 (PC) (CD-ROM)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I must admit I'm quite a new PSP owner and as yet have not really explored its true potential. Although I was aware that it played music and movies I have an Ipod touch and so generally use that to play music and movies (often while playing the PSP). Another reason why I was loath to use it's full functionality is that previous to my Ipod I owned a Sony HDD MP3 player...

Those of you who owned one of these (or any other Sony MP3 product) will remember with equal love and loathing the sonic stage program, It contained more bugs than a flea circus and was the main reason why the content of my MP3 pleyer never changed...ever. I approched this product with trepidation expecting something similar.

The program installed without incident although it seemed to install an awful lot of compenents. During installation it suggests inserting your memory card and activating the usb link before starting the programme - take heed when I changed the memory stick for a larger one the programme didn't like it and promptly stopped working.

Once installation was complete the program booted up to show a simple interface. Those who have ever used Samsungs media manager for mobile phones will find it familar. The screen is separated into two main panes one to reflect the contents of your Pc and one to reflect the contents of the PSP. A side menu along the left hand side allows you to jump to movies, music etc.

Trandserring files is done wholly through the manager. There is no drag-and-drop feature like in I Tunes. files are found by the program checking your video and music files in your windows folders so if like me you have multiple folders for downloaded, imported, converted etc you will need to move them to your windown music folder for the program to pick them up.

Once your file has been found simply drag it from the top pane to the bottom and quicker than you can say "encode to avi" it's off and running converting and transferring to your PSP.

The real value of this product will depend on how you use your PSP. I found it handy to have an all in one conversion and transfer tool but my personal preferance is to use Winavi to convert my files and use my Ipod to view them. It is very simple to use and somebody might well prefer this to the current awkward methods of conversion that are available.
