I just got my PSP and have been trying to get a ripped movie to play on it all day and am having absolutly no luck. I rip the dvd with dvddecrypter and convert it with psp video 9. When the video is done converting I place it in the propper folder and restart my psp. When I turn it back on I can see the thumbnail for the movie but when I attempt to play it the screen just goes black. I am able to make the controls show up but they dont really do anything and it wont allow me to exit the movie. I have to shut the PSP down again to make it go away. I have tried playing the video file on my computer and it works fine. I have been searching the forums all day and know about where the folders need to go so I dont think thats the problem. I had a similar issue with personalize, after I get everything put where it belongs and restart I see the thumbnail but again it freezes up. When I click the thumbnail I see the little psp animation then the screen just goes black and "finished..." pops up in the top left corner. With this one I can hit home and it will ask me if I want to exit so it dosnt completly freeze but the background never changes. I just dont know what else to try, or where else to look. I would really appreciate any help anyone could give me.
