I've had the same issues and find that they often don't work.
So I've got into the habit of using a package like this:
to convert everything to PSP format before adding it. I found one that could do them in batched too which was great. I have a lot of home movies in .wmv format that needed doing

Same problem here, I purchased the psp for my son as a universal entertainment devise. The only thing the psp can do it seems at the moment is games. I have so many DVD's that I would love to transfer to the PSP for road trips but obviously is not a simple process. Shame really.
I have been rummaging through forums after forums reading and applying all sorts of advises on how to convert and transfer movies onto the PSP. "Unsupported Format" is the only movie playing so far.
I've tried the Video 9 free software and even paid $30 for the Leawo video converter software. Non of them work. I'm sure its something I'm doing wrong but not sure what and it seems to be a wide spread issue as its plastered on forums everywhere, people like me not able to play MP4 movies on the PSP.
Sony could do itself justice and possible increase sales on its PSP if they make this process a little easier for the average user. Its not Piracy, I bought the original movie as a DVD and want to convert it to play on a different media. If you can purchase VCR's to convert VHS to DVD, why not make it just as simple converting to other popular formats.
I will continue on until the mystery is solved. I will post the end result with a true solution.

OK the way I have got around this, it is time consuming but, when it is done it is done
First, If the DVD is not copy protected i.e. my Basilisk disc's imported from Japan are not. I just use Freemake converter, great program with the best results I can find, plus it's free!
Second, if the DVD is copy protected like my Futurama box set's (and I agree if you own them it is not steeling unless you sell the DVD) then I use DVD shrink 3.2 (this program is old and not support by the Dev's any more but works just fine, even on Win7) to convert the files to .vob. Then again back to Freemake converter to transfer into .mp4. It takes quite some time, but like I said once it's done, it's done.
I hope this helps? If you have any problems give me a shout, ok? I have been using this method since getting my PSP1000 from Japan, just wish I didn't have to use 3rd party software, but hey, it works and works very well.

Thanks sin-er, I will give this a go when I get home tonight. Ill post my results.
The DVD's I'm burning are copy right protected as they are newer animated movies (ie. G-Force) I bought for the kids. I did use DVD Shrink but I kept getting errors during the shrinking process and ended up cancelling the whole thing. I'm getting really frustrated. MP4 is MP4 is MP4! If the media is compatible with MP4 then why is it so difficult to get it to work. uugh. And if the software i use or BUY has a conversion setting specifically for the PSP, why doesn't it work? Glorious stuff I tell you.
Anyways, I appreciate the help sin-er.

I new Shrink would take a while so I did leave it running and went to be only to wake up this morning to an error. The ***** thing didn't even reach 1% all night.
I'm using a 6 month old laptop running Windows 7. Its a higher end laptop with a Nvidia Gforce GPU and 4gigs of ram. I've been in the game for a long time now, long enough to know there is something weird and unstable about transferring movies to the PSP.
In regards to gamebooster I don't use it but I do keep my startup folder clean as a daisy. So it would be safe to say there is nothing that should be conflicting with DVD Shrink. Disconnecting from the internet is one thing I haven't tried yet. I give that ago tonight.
When converting a DVD to MP4 to play on the PSP, do I keep all the menus and extra features like "Deleted Scenes"? Does the PSP recognize this?
