The past weekend I got around to trying the newly updated PSPWare 2.0.1 to see if my past problems were gone.
The previous version that I was using was having difficulties transfering images to my PSP on my Mac Mini. Images either would not transfer or would not display properly due to corrupted image headers. This was the first thing that I tested with this new version and I found that I could finally put the 100 or so images from my trip on my PSP without any problems or errors.
The next thing I tested was the save and restore of various save games, which worked wonderfully. PSPWare has a seperate “Backup” tab where you can keep the last 10, 25, 50 or 100 versions of your save games just in case you would want to go back in time with a game. It of course also allows you to easily drag and drop a new save game in that you may of just downloaded from the net. This is a crutial feature of any PSP sych application, and PSPWare does it right.
I wasn’t able to give the video or audio syncing a proper test as I’m still running on the puny 32MB card that ships with the PSP. I did try synching a video and single mp3 and it worked as expected, but I would like to see how it handles full playlists coming from iTunes or full DVD or mpeg videos transfers before I can give it a thumbs up for Video or Audio uses. Once my new 1 gig card arrives I’ll be sure to post my thoughts.
I would reccomend this application to all Mac users as I have found it the most stable and easy to use PSP synching application out there so far.
