Based onyour concern, I suggest trying the following steps:
1. Before you plug it in make sure the PSPis in USB connect mode.--> Alsomake sure the Memory Stick PRO Duo has been formatted for PSP. If it's not thisis how you do it:
On themain menu, scroll all the way left to the "Settings" menu. Thenselect "System Settings." Then scroll to "Format MemoryStick" and press X.
2. Connect the PSP to your PC with a USBcable.
3.Press the "home" button on the PSP
--> atthe lower left of the screen you can see the home button.
4. Use the left-right directional buttons tofind "Settings", then the up-down buttons to find "USBConnection" on the PSP. 5. Press the "X" button, your PSPshould display "USB Connection". 6. Please wait until your computer tells youthat a new USB device has been connected, then show you a new generic harddrive, usually E: or F: 7. Click on the drive letter thatcorresponds to the PSP unit.

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.
