    Hi I have a question....when I plug my psp in via usb and delete files from it using my computer, (through windows explorer) the files go away but, the free space meter doesnt change....when I delete them directly from my psp it works fine, but i dont want to have to delete every file individually from my psp...

    another thing...when I take the memory stick out of the psp and put it in a mem stick reader...and delete files...it works fine also...is this a firmware thing?...I am running custom firmware v3.40oe ...please if you have any input as to why this may be happening or if it is happening to you also ..please post

    Maybe your cpu just says that, try refreshing after you delete.

    could this have anything to do with my psp's flash being messed up, I was doing a little messing around with the flash to try and reinstall locationfree player to 3.40oe...if so how could I fix this

    or could it be a problem with my windows explorer not recognizing the psp right?...because I have this software called action replay ...it lets you transfer music, videos, game saves and photos to the psp using its own interface....and when I use that software it works fine also....if there was something wrong with my flash it wouldn't work in that software either right? answers???

    I have this same problem. I am using a mac though. and worse.. the only way i can get it to refresh is to erase the whole card via a reformat. when i had a pc (with a built in card reader), I believe i was able to delete off of the card and it would show the correct space. i think it may have something to do with connecting through the usb. but like you said, it does work if you go into the file on the psp and delete from there. that may be the only way to go.
