Ok... am i just been thick?
I have used VideoWrap to convert a video for the psp.
I have copied it to the memory stick into the MP_ROOT\100MNV01 as mentioned on another site.
Any help on this would be much appreciated as my son is getting a psp for Christmas and i am sure he going to making a lot of requests for video conversions...

So what's your problem exactly? Is it not playing on the PSP or what?

(got distracted and pressed submit too soon)
The psp doesn't list the file in the browser.
I have also tried placing the file in the root.
so to summarise, i cannot find and play the file

The way I do it is convert the file to the PSP format and save to my desktop. I open the psp folder like you would a jump drive. I copy and paste the video into the folder. I get out of USB connection and check file and it is always there. Its pretty straight forward. If you are using other software to get the movie on your PSP then most likely that software has saved the file on your computer in that folder and not actually copied it over to the PSP. Anyway, copy and paste is how I do it and I never have any issues.

I take the memory stick out of the PSP and plug it into my card reader.
Copy the file across then put the memory stick back into the psp.

We havn't had any problems with the PSP here in the office, have you updated the firmware of the PSP, thats always a good start. I don't think you need to put the video anywhere specific... Oh update just found this in a google search
"One of Sony's many brilliant moves in crippling the PSP's video functionality was to insist on an opaque and inflexible file system for movies on the Memory Stick; if a video file isn't named "M4V1000number.mp4" and located in the \MP_ROOT\100MNV01 directory, your PSP will pretend it doesn't exist."

Oh yeah, I forgot about that. It does have to be named right. I have no trouble with mine.
