My computer dosent run my psp program with a usb cable so i can sync anything in, how do i make it recognize my psp


When you connect your PSP to your computer, it won't recognize the PSP immediately. After you connect the PSP, you will have to navigate to USB Mode on the XMB. Your computer will recognize your PSP as a mass storage device.
Good Luck.

Instructions:

  2. Connect the PSP with the mini USB to USB cable to the computer
  3. On the PSP, go to the settings menu and select "USB Connection."
  4. Your computer should recognize that a device has been connected to it, open up the device (your PSP) inside a file viewer, such as windows explorer. There should be a few folders here one named Video and one named Music.
  5. Add the music and video files to these folders, and press O(circle) on the PSP to end the USB Connection.
  6. If all has gone right, and the files are the correct formats, you should be able to enjoy your music and videos on your PSP.

Laptop will not recognize psp


Hi lawolf77,

If your laptop wont recognize your PSP there might be a connection problem between the two. So you need to check what's causing the problem. There are several ways to check if PSP and your computer are properly connected, one good example is by checking the connectors and the device setting.

If you want to check some configuration on how to connect your PSP to your PC please try to follow these steps:

1. First, connect your PSP to your PC using a usb cable.
- please make sure both ends are properly intact.

2. Using the left and right directional button find "Setting", then scroll down or up to find the "USB CONNECTION".

3. USB CONNECTION will display after you pressed the x button.

4. Please wait until computer detects the USB connection. After that it will show the drive for your PSP. usually F: or G:

5. Click on your PSP drive letter.

6. Now you can determine if your PC recognizes the PSP, just access the root folder and try to put some files on it.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

PSP Troubles - unknown device


Hi,

This is what you should do;

1. Restore your psp to factory setting.

2. If this does not solve the problem, then i guess you'll have to change the psp battery.

This should resolve the problem that you are facing with the psp right now.

Good Luck.

Unknown device


Hi,
this is an error message stating that. the usb device is faulty.
It has detected that the usb port has an error/fault or problem.
check that non of the pins are touching each other, or that dirt or dust isn,t inside the usb connection port. blow in it. or use a cotton bud to swab it out.
