    I recently bought a pre-owned PSP 1003, but there is no way I can get it to play AVI or MP4 movies uploaded to the memory stick. When I try, I get 'Corrupt Data' although they play fine on the PC when I remove the stick and play them from the USB adapter. MP3 music plays fine though.
    What may be the problem with playing movies?
    Thank you.

    Thank you Tikker and Durelle. Tikker: your answer begs the question: 'and what codec would that be?' Durelle to the rescue!

    Well, I am very impressed because I had put this question to several PSP user forums and got no reply whatever. (I suppose 99% of users are gamers and so havent used their PSP for viewing movies). I am not a gamer but would use the PSP for watching movies while commuting via bus to work. It takes 3 hours plus both ways and it's a great way to pass that time. Again, thanks man! :yayswitch:
