    if your running windows
    try going to the control panel on your pc and go to add hardware connect the psp to the pc and then click "yes I have already connected the hardware" then it should bring up a list of devices plugged into your pc in that list should be your psp. if it has a ! sign on it you will need to reinstall the drivers for your psp. if the psp is not shown on there then there is a problem with ether the fw, the usb cable or the usb hub on the psp.
    if it does not show up then try updating or downgrading your psp and see if that works or try a new usb cable.
    if all fails then it might be something to do with the usb hub on the psp but i dont think it is because it wouldnt have come up with being connected.

    if your running it on a apple mac or a Linux pc then I cant help u soz

    p.s dont do all your message in caps because some people get a bit eggy about it, I dont really care do some people do (just a word of warning :)

    are you using a fat or a slim? if it is a slim, try turning off the charge usb feature until you have sucessfully connected once. if that's not it, then you should be able to use a card reader the same way that you use the psp.

    does this message come up on the computer or psp.

    if it comes up on the psp then the usb hub is broken
    if it comes up on the pc then try connecting it to another pc

    if all fails you can buy a mem stick adapter which you plug into the usb port like this

    to reboot your psp all you have to do is hold the power buttom up until it flashes and then turn it back on. you could try installing the psp drivers they might have been deleted off your pc

    i had a similar malfunctioning issue with my mp3/usb player which i fixed by doing this:-

    1. put your psp into usb mode.
    2. go to control panel, then device manager, scroll to "disk drive" and then right click on the psp usb device.
    3. click uninstall, then ok at the prompt.
    4. disconnect your psp's usb connection.
    5. and finally plug it back in again, and that should start the installing of the required drivers again.

    disclaimer - i take no responsibilty if this adds more to your problems instead of fixing them.

    try this program see if it recognises your psp. i dont think it will but its worth a try. i suggest though try connecting the psp to another computer and see whether it comes up with the same message. also have you try connecting the flash0,1 drives to the computer to see if they work. if they do then it might be your memory stick because the psp is like a big card reader and if the card is corrupt the it cant connect to the pc. so try formatting the card on the psp and checking if it is fake or not (do this by pressing triangle on the mem card and the info and then look to see if it says magic gate supported

    this should fix it thinking about it

    I have installed USBhost drivers on one of my machines. This enables me to run games and software that's stored on my PC using the USB cable. eg. I can run a lot more stuff than I can store on the PSP just by hooking up to that computer. However, it does not recognise my PSP in normal USB mode. The PSP is recognised by other computers as usual and I've no real need to worry about it myself.

    I'm just saying this because maybe it explains your issue. It may not necessarilly be the same issue but I think it's a driver problem. Just uninstalling the device using the device manager won't necessarily fix it because it will automatically find the same drivers for the device if they are still there on your PC.

    Try another computer - if it connects up then I'd say it's a driver problem on your PC.
