My computer does not reconize unit

To troubleshoot a connectivity issue please try the following:

  1. Ensure the cable is secure on the device and computer. Disconnect and reconnect the device.
  2. If still not connecting and the cable is secure press the rest on the back of the device while connected to the computer.
  3. If a reset does not work then disconnect the device from the computer, wait at least 10 seconds and try another USB port on the computer.
  4. If another USB port does not resolve the issue disconnect the device, restart your computer, then connect the device.
  5. If all the above fails you can Reinstall the Device Driver. Navigate to the Device Manager on your computer. Please note this will vary based on the operating system you are using. Once at the Device Manager screen locate Universal Serial Bus Controllers. Click the arrow/triangle to the left of the Universal Serial Bus Controllers to expand the drop down list. If the device driver is the issue one of the items listed will say Unknown Device. Right click on Unknown Device and select uninstall. Once the uninstall has been completed, restart your computer with the device still connected.

If the device is not recognized after trying all these steps you will need to contact Technical Support for additional troubleshooting.

I see that you are having difficulties connecting your PS to your wireless Router, Inorder for your PSP to get connected to your Router wirelessly make sure that your remove your Network Key from the Router this will let cell phones and other mobile devices connect to your Router without any errors, to protect your Network having a disable security you can enable MAC Address filtering in your router this should let you get your PS and other mobile devices connect to your Router and at the same time give security to your personal Network.

Error code 8010850f

Assuming that you are using a PSP Go, then this error is caused by the fact that your device is not authorized to play your games anymore. This sometimes happens after a firmware update. In order to fix the problem, you must either attempt to sign in with the PSN account that you created when you purchased the device, or you must connect the PSP to the computer and use Sony's online PSP management page to reactivate the PSP. Go to: and then follow the on screen steps.
