How to transfer iTunes M4P to PSP-3000, put iTunes Plus onto PSP-3000
Apart from a great game player, the PSP-3000 is also a very good entertainment device which can be used for playing music. Suppose you've purchased a lot of songs from iTunes Store and are trying to figure out how to transfer them to your PSP-3000. You copy and paste the songs to the PSP music folder, however, the PSP doesn't recognize them as music at all. What's wrong? This article comes to the rescue! It is composed of the following parts:
As we know, the majority of music from iTunes Store goes iTunes Plus. However, as long as you are not a new iTunes user, you are likely to have in your iTunes Library some songs which are M4P files. You have to pay 30 cents per songs in order to upgrade them. It's simple mathematics. For 500 songs to upgrade to, you need to pay USD150 = 500 X 0.3.
To save money, the easiest way is to burn the music to an "Audio CD" and then rip it back to Windows Media Player or a similar program as MP3 music.
Or you can turn to some software for help. I always use TuneClone M4P Converter to help me convert iTunes music to MP3, ready to transfer to my new PSP-3000. The steps are quite simple. You can follow this step by step guide to get the iTunes music transferred to your PSP-3000: How to convert iTunes M4P to MP3
To put iTunes Plus music to your PSP-3000, launch your iTunes and then:
1. Click on "Edit -> Preferences...". From the "General" tab click on "Import Settings..." button.
2. Change the "Import Using" drop down box to "MP3 Encoder".
3. From the "Settings" drop down box select "Custom..." and choose a "Stereo Bit Rate" of "256Kbps". 4. Click "OK", "OK" and "OK".
5. Now find a file that you want to convert, right-click on it and select "Create MP3 Version" and an MP3 copy will be created.
Note: If you want to skip the trouble of converting AAC music to MP3 one by one, you can still use TuneClone M4P Converter to help you transfer the iTunes Plus music to your PSP-3000. If you have both iTunes M4P music and iTunes Plus music in your Library, it is recommended that you get TuneClone to batch convert the music for your PSP.

"I've been waiting a long time to 'free my iTunes' to use on my Walkman mobile phone, and the only way I could do it before was to burn to CD then rip back again. A very lengthy process, which normally ended up full of faults and a lot of wasted disks!! Not any more!!" -- David
