    Alright, this is a pretty easy fix. Please excuse the incompetent.
    Well, firstly, affirm that you are not utilizing a limited account on
    Windows XP and that you have administrative privileges. Then:

    1. Go to Start
    2. Go to All programs
    3. Go to Accessories
    4. Go to System, if its not there and exactly says SYSTEM, look for it in System Tools
    5. Go to Hardware
    6. Go to Device Manager
    7.
    Look around for anything that has an X or anything of that sort and if
    you come across something regarding USB, or PSP, right click it and
    click enable. If it is enabled, click reinstall drivers.

    From
    there, your PSP will be recognized and identified and you will be
    capable of utilizing your PSP and computer simultaneously to the
    fullest extent for complete enjoyment.

PSP Not Connecting to PC via USB


Hi rupasam,

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.

Hope it helps,

Thank you for using FixYa.

Then do this:
  1. Connect the mini connector to the top of your PSP and the other end of the cable into a USB slot on your PC. For the best perfornance, connect your PSP to a USB 2.0 slot.
  2. Make sure the PSP is on.
  3. Scroll to the 'Settings' menu by pressing the left arrow on the PSP.
  4. Select 'USB Connection' using the up and down arrows on the control pad.
  5. Press the 'X' button.
  6. Your PC should detect the PSP device, and show it in Explorer as a new drive (for example, 'F:').

Downloading music on to a sony psp


1. Connect your PSP to your PC via the USB cable.
2. On your PSP's menu, go all the way left into the Settings menu.
3. Scroll up to the USB Connection menu and click X
4. Your PC should recognize your PSP. You can then access your PSP's installed memory stick just as you would any other drive. Let's say, for example, your PSP is now drive G:\ on your Computer. On your PC, click into drive G:
5. Click into the PSP Folder. If this folder does not exist, you can create it by clicking File --> New --> Folder
6. Click into the MUSIC Folder. If this folder does not exist, you can create it by clicking File --> New --> Folder

==> Here you can drap and drop [or copy and paste] all of your MP3 or WMA files and they should appear on the PSP's music menu.

I'm looking for psp driver for xp


If you are wanting to access your PSP via a USB cable, then you don't need a driver. go to your PSP's system settings and select USB connection (connect the cable to the PC and PSP prior to this) and allow windows to install the generic drivers.

XP will recognise this as a Removable Storage Device (just like an external hard drive or Flash drive). Are you wanting to add files to the memory or just take a backup of current files?

you can try Sony Creative Software Downloads, or perhaps checking with local gaming stores as they may have what you are looking for.
