Make sure the contacts in the PSP's mem stick slot are clean... no dust/dirt in there. Format the memory stick on your PC then put it in the PSP. If the PC can read it and the PSP can't, you'll need to send in your PSP for repairs.
Based on your concern, I suggest trying the following steps:
1. Before you plug it in make sure the PSP is in USB connect mode. --> Also make sure the Memory Stick PRO Duo has been formatted for PSP. If it's not this is how you do it: On the main menu, scroll all the way left to the "Settings" menu. Then select "System Settings." Then scroll to "Format Memory Stick" and press X. 2. Connect the PSP to your PC with a USB cable. 3. Press the "home" button on the PSP --> at the lower left of the screen you can see the home button. 4. Use the left-right directional buttons to find "Settings", then the up-down buttons to find "USB Connection" on the PSP. 5. Press the "X" button, your PSP should display "USB Connection". 6. Please wait until your computer tells you that a new USB device has been connected, then show you a new generic hard drive, usually E: or F: 7. Click on the drive letter that corresponds to the PSP unit.
Hook your psp up via USB or take the Memory stick out and use a card read to being up the contents on your computer.
Look inside the contents and you should see several folders. Look for one named "music" and open it. Drop all mp3 files into the folder and be sure to disconnect the memory stick via windows on bottom right hand corner in windows.
turn on your PSP and in the menus go to the music area. Go down to memory card and open it. It should list all the files you dropped.
Let me know if you have any trouble and I hope I helped!!
Ok, plug your mem. stick into your computer. if you don't have a slot it fits in, then leave it in your PSP and plug the PSP into your PC with a USB cable.(You cannot put music or anything else for that matter without a Memory Stick Pro DUO and a computer or PS3. If you dont have a USB cable or a slot for the mem. stick, this wont work.) Click on the start menu, go to My Computer, look for the REMOVABLE DISC J: (or K:, at least that's what mine says.) Double-click on the icon. when it loads, right-click, go to new, and select folder. Type the name "MUSIC", all caps. Open the folder then drag your music tracks into the window. You're done!
Try using a different method to transfer files. This is how I do it:
Connect the PSP to the computer then access it's folders by going into "My Computer". Once that window has been brought up, open the folder with all your music or whatever you want. Now, with both windows next to each other, drag and drop the files you want on your PSP.
If the same problem keeps occurring, it may be your computer that's the problem if your PSP is still trying to connect once it's been disconnected. Have you tried removing your PSP safely? There should be a little icon on the right bottom of your computer screen that says "Safely Remove Hardware". Use that to remove your PSP from now on if you haven't already.
Did yout try using the same UMD game your brother was using and see if the game format has anything to do with it? Since you upgraded, the UMD game may be old, and might not work with Version 3.71. It sounds like your PSP is working just fine other than that.
as long as you have connected the usb lead and tried in different ports, make sure you are selecting USB Connection in the settings menu on the psp, it should then connect, but some older pc's may not have enough voltage sent to the usb ports to read the psp, if this is so you will need to buy a powered usb hub.
