My PC cant find my PSP even im connecting with a usb device....


Sorry about this, your usb port on your psp could be possibly damaged. So you can use a memory stick on your memory card reader to do your data transfer. If you insist on using the usb connection then try seeing a sony repair personnel for this.

Follow this steps to transfer music on PSP:

  1. Insert a Memory Stick into the Memory Stick slot in the left side of the PSP. Depending on how much music you want it to hold, you may need to get a larger one than the stick that came with your system.
  2. Turn on the PSP.
  3. Plug a USB cable into the back of the PSP and into your PC or Mac. The USB cable needs to have a Mini-B connector on one end (this plugs into the PSP), and a standard USB connector on the other (this plugs into the computer).
  4. Scroll to the "Settings" icon on the home menu of your PSP.
  5. Find the "USB Connection" icon in the "Settings" menu. Press the X button. Your PSP will display the words "USB Mode" and your PC or Mac will recognize it as a USB storage device.
  6. Create a folder called "PSP" on the PSP Memory Stick (if there isn't one already) -- it shows up as "Portable Storage Device" or something similar -- (you can use Windows Explorer on a PC, or Finder on a Mac).
  7. Create a folder called "MUSIC" inside the "PSP" folder.
  8. Drag and drop image files into the "MUSIC" folder just as you would save files in another folder on your computer.
  9. Disconnect your PSP by first clicking on "Safely Remove Hardware" on the bottom menu bar of a PC, or by "ejecting" the drive on the Mac (drag the icon into the trash). Then unplug the USB cable and press the circle button to return to the home menu.
Hope that helps........

Going online

uhh, i don't want to sound sarcastic by this - but the PSP is NOT designed to go online with a USB cable.

The USB cable is used to transfer files to and from the PSP console. You can use it for charging the PSP (Slim) if you don't have a charger with you handy.

Other than that, you can't use the USB cable for anything else.

Hook up a USB cable between the PSP and your PC. Turn on the PSP, Scroll over to Toolbox, and move up one notch to USB and press the X button, The PSP screen will tell you its in USB mode.
If your running Windows XP, or Vista on your PC, the PC should recoognize and ask you what you want to do. Select open a Folder. Once the Folder opens on your PC, you can move files to and From the PSP.

You can transfer it from your sstem by connecting using a USB cable..
Here's how to do it just in case you wanted to do it..

It's not too hard to transfer files from your Windows PC to your Sony PSP, but here's the trick: the "PSP Value Pack" doesn't have everything that you need. Not so good. In fact, you'll want to add a larger Memory Stick Duo, for example, because 32MB just isn't much space at all, when you come down to it.
The other missing piece in the Value Pack is the USB cable that lets you connect your Sony PSP to your Windows PC and, of course, vice versa. Fortunately, these are pretty easy to find - anywhere that carries Sony digital cameras should have the right USB cable, or you can try somewhere like Froogle to find a cable. I did a quick search and found this $7.95 cable from one store.
To get everything working, plug the Sony PSP into the Windows PC via USB cable, plug the PSP into the wall, then turn both units on. On the PSP, click the "USB Connection" button (on the Settings menu) and, hopefully, your PC will beep and tell you that it's found a new "removable disk": your PSP.
Using Windows Explorer, find the new PSP device and if there isn't already a folder called PHOTO on it, create one as you ordinarily would create a folder in Windows. Now just drop in any JPEG images you'd like to have viewable on your PSP while on the go.
Music-wise, you'll want to create a folder called MUSIC and drop in MP3 format music files (which means that you can't play music you get from the Apple iTunes Store, for example, because that's in a different format).
I hope that'll get you going with this process. It doesn't seem too hard!
