Importing ATRAC3/ATRAC3plus files onto PSP

I've been wanting to use ATRAC to fit mp3s on that dinker little 32MB memory card that Sony gave you with the PSP "Value Pack". Anyways, I encoded an entire album in ATRAC using SonicStage 3.0 in just about every setting and I just can't get the damn thing to recognize them.

 

I'm putting them in the PSP/MUSIC/... folder.

 

Numerous sources say it's supposed to work... mp3s work... what's the deal? :D

Actually... with SonicStage it's pretty easy and it rendered some pretty small files with some OK results for example, I made a 9MB MP3 into a 4MB ATRAC3 file with little difference in quality.

 

Good for us that can't afford a 512MB or 1GB card and only have the 32MB card to work with for a bit. ;)

 

That's good to hear about the firmware update though, thanks for the info.

Lossy compression to lossy compression is not my idea of fun. That's taking a track with already compromised sound quality and reducing it further -both in terms of further compression and by nature of using a different compression technique.

 

Furthermore, if you really want to make a 9MB MP3 smaller you can simply lower the bitrate/quality settings and re-rip to MP3. You'll get similarly poor quality as with MP3 --> ATRAC but you can keep things as one format for simplicity.
