About the device activation procedure
Device activation is a procedure that allows playback of content only on authenticated devices. This procedure is necessary to protect the digital rights of the content.
Some content downloaded from PlayStation®Store can only be used by an activated PSP™ system or an activated PC. In most cases, the device activation procedure is performed automatically when content is downloaded or transferred to a PSP™ system.
- If the maximum number of devices are activated with the PlayStation®Network account that you want to use, you will not be able to download or transfer content to a PSP™ system. In this case, you must first deactivate a PSP™ system or a PC from the account and then perform the download or transfer operation. For details about deactivating a device, see [Deactivating devices] in this guide.
- Confirm that your PC is deactivated before uninstalling "Media Go" from the PC.
- The type of devices that can be activated varies depending on the region or the language in use.
- For assistance with deactivating devices, contact the technical support line for your region.
You can deactivate devices using the following methods.
Deactivating a PC
On the activated PC, select (Account Management) > [System Activation] > [PC]. Follow the on-screen instructions to deactivate the PC.
Deactivating a PSP™ system
Connect the activated PSP™ system to a PC, and then select (Account Management) > [System Activation] > [Other Device (Such as a PSP™ System)]. Follow the on-screen instructions to deactivate the system.
