    Hi all

    I have managed to get a Jap PSP,
    simply because I have been dying for a gadget to mess
    with and i love games so i couldn't resist it esp since its
    the best looking handheld at the moment(susceptible to scratches too!!).

    My Uncle ...(a wonderful chap) whose a pilot bought me this
    PSP whilst on a trip to Japan.
    I am having so much trouble trying to get it up and
    running.

    So rather than bombard you folks with a 1001 q's can you
    recommend any web site that I can goto that will help me?

    I was trying to get my PC connected to it, my PC detected it
    via USB but can't access it any further. I was trying to get
    on the network at least.

    Which Memory sticks should I be using?

    I have yet to purchases games for it.
    What do you recommned? which leads to my next question..
    .... Will any games from any region work on the PSP?
    Or am i only restricted with only Jap games?
    Where should i purchase these games?

    Cheers!

    Blimey.. questions questions! lol Right... to get on the network I think you have to have a wireless network, you have to switch the wireless port on (switch on the left hand side near the memory stick cover). You then go through the network settings and it should detect your wireless network and away you go.
    Memory sticks you need pro duo ones (you might actually get away with normal duo sticks but pro are better). You can get sticks from e.g. www.digimem.biz. As for games you must get Ridge Racers, yes games from any region will work but there's only Jap games available right now. Good places for the games are www.lik-sang.com or www.play-asia.com . Check out psp.ign.com or www.gamespot.com for some general PSP info which might help you. If you want to get movies on a memory stick for viewing on the PSP see http://wolfk.hollosite.com/

    Cheers,
    Andy.

    Yes, but it is not a pro!

    Try http://www.mymemory.co.uk/categories.php?id=16

    for sticks - 1GB for £99 and all denominations down from that. Can recommend this company highly.

    For USB connection to your PC, go to the options on the left hand side (brief case), and scroll to USB connection. Press circle, and that turns it on. You can then access it through "My Computer" on your PC.

    There are two very good hardware guides for the PSP on www.gamefaqs.com

    Anything else, just ask!

    I think that will be ok but to be honest you'd be much better off getting a 512MB card as they aren't that much more expensive. You'll be paying £25 for 128MB and perhaps £50 for 512MB which is 4 times as much memory for twice the price! Go for a pro duo stick and get at least 256MB , 128MB is nothing especially for video material!

    Cheers,
    Andy.
