I was looking through the threads on this board and noticed that someone was saying about using a ipod as an external drive for a psp so that playback of movies could be acheived? is this possible and if so can you explain in easy terms how to do it .

thanks

It can only be done with mp3 players that can act as a USB host. iPod is not one of them :(

PSP + IPOD = heaven ;)

It was me who was on about it....it is possible with this little device here (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00081GAQ4/qid%3D1128978064/sr%3D8-1/ref%3Dsr%5F8%5Fxs%5Fap%5Fi1%5Fxgl147/102-3323895-5082524?v=glance&s=pc&n=507846)

It basically allows you to copy files between devices that would normally need a pc to do so. It effectively turns your ipod and psp into USB host capable devices.

You can either have it connect directly between your PSP and IPOD or stick your memory stick into the built in card reader and transfer over your movies/games etc.

This is how you'd connect it:

IPOD------>Aleratec USB Copy Cruiser Plus----->PSP
or
IPOD------>Aleratec USB Copy Cruiser Plus----->memory stick

Hope that helps ;)

However, the Aleratec copier always creates a folder called "backup" on the target disk that contains all the items you are copying.

As far as I know the PSP can not see this folder. How did you deal with this problem?

Thanks!
