Converting PSP-Compatable Video

I have a bunch of old files (mostly unlicensed anime and AMV's,*.avi and *.mp[e]g) I'd like to watch on my PSP, but I can't seem to be able to get it to work...I tried fiddling with ffmpeg to convert to .mp4 (I did a command something like this ' ffmpeg -y -i <input> -title "<title>" -timestamp "<timestamp>" -bitexact -vcodec xvid -s 320x240 -r 29.97 -qscale 4 -acodec aac -ac 2 -ar 24000 -ab 48 -f mp4 <output-file>.mp4' on the latest stable gentoo ebuild of ffmpeg (0.4.9-p20050226-r5)) and moving the file to /mnt/psp/mp_root/100mnv01 (my PSP is mounted at /mnt/psp).

I've google'd for solutions and apps for making PSP-compatable video files, and can't find solution involved hacking a March 2005 CVS build, but doing that wouldn't recognize my a/v codecs

Did I do something wrong with the command? Or is it even possible to do this with ffmpeg?

Thanks for your help

EDIT: Forgot to mention, I have the 2.6 firmware installed on the PSP...Idunno if that makes a difference...

I have been currently using Xilisoft DVD to PSP Converter in the current wine build with out issue. I know that there are any other software program that are freeware that does the same thing. I have not tried any of the other program yet my self. regarding the 2.6 firmware part. I don't know. I am still using 2.0. However if you do your research there are software advailible that allow you to go back to previous firmware version with out any ill effect.
