    I'm getting to the point of throwing it out the window!! :mad:

    My PC won't recognise the PSP, when I switch to USB mode windows gives me a USB device not reconised pop up!!

    I have a printer with a memory card reader which is fine & I've changed the drive label for that from e: to f: but windows simply won't recognise the PSP??

    Please help before I see if my PSP flies!!! :lease:

    Most odd! I'll ask the obvious question first - I take it that you have a memory card in the PSP? That's the only thing I can think of (apart from maybe a duff lead that isn't fully making the connection). There are no extra drivers required so it should work fine on connection, just like any flash memory should.

    My thoughts exactly?
    I guess I'll have to replace the cable & go from there.

    Cheers

    Heres a possible workaround for you if you cant get it working :

    Buy a cheap memory card reader & send your movies / MP3's direct to the card. Then simply insert it into the PSP & away you go?

    That might not work, when I tried inserting my PSP formatted Memory stick straight into the memory stick slot on my Vaio it would not read it and just said it needed formatting which obvioulsy deletes all the data.
    Don't know if a card reader would have the same effect or not?

    I placedthe card into the PSP slot first & then performed the "Format Card" option in the settings menu. This created the correct directories for Photos, MP3's and gamesaves. The only manual directory creation I had to do was for MP4 Films (Google for instructions).

    Easy eh?

    Is the USB port on the PSP unique? It does not match the normal PC or D type plugs that my other devices use. Do I have to order one from the states to be able to connect it to my PC?

    thanks

    rigman,

    No, it's a standard USB 'type B' connector as used on digital cameras etc. Available from Maplin etc.

    Did you go into the PSP's "settings" menu & select "usb"?

    IIRC, one of my PC's recognised the PSP initially as "unknown" but then recognised it after I activated "usb" on the PSP. Recognises it now automatically.
